McGuffey First Eclectic Reader Lesson 40



“Come here, Lucy, and listen!  What is in this flower?”

“O mother! it is a bee. I wonder how it came to be shut up in the flower!”


“It went into the flower for some honey, and it may be it went to sleep.  Then the flower shut it in.

“The bee likes honey as well as we do, but it does not like to be shut up in the flower.

“Shall we let it out, Lucy?”

“Yes; then it can go to other flowers, and get honey.”
