Reader Description

The wheels have fallen off an old man's cart on his way to market. A man, a girl and an old woman pass by - who will be able to help him fix his cart?

After you have completed the Reader

Re-read page 3 and think up different cause and effect situations. For instance, the horse might stand on a stone and hurt its hoof, or the cart could bounce up and down and Farmer Dan might drop the reins or slide off the cart.
