We need to find a new home ‘And so, the three little pigs walked for many days in search of a new home till they came to a farm’ Look over there. Look at that. Is that a farm? A farm?

The Little Red Hen, Sleepy Cat and Chatty Duck stay in this farm too Where are they? Why aren’t they out to welcome us? Do they not like us? No, of course not Maybe they are still busy with their chores right now Or maybe they are just a little shy I feel shy too when I meet new friends Well, how about the three of you look for the other animals? It helps to talk to them first so they will know you better -Good idea
-We can try that But, what if they still don’t like us? Well, you never know unless you try Don’t worry, they are very nice animals Okay, I will try ‘There are indeed many chores to be done in the farm The other animals are busy with their own work’ I love working with my wood and tools I can use them whenever and however I want to and I’m so glad that I am here, all by myself Quack! What are you doing here? I thought I was all by myself Hi, you must be Chatty Duck I am Brother Pig I would love making workbenches too Do you think I can join you? No Please? Please please? Fine, you’ll stay here and I’ll be there Now this is a pretty hard wood to saw Let me get a bigger saw to do it Hey, where is my big saw? Why can’t I find it? Quack! He’s using the big saw. Now I can’t use it I hope he will be done soon Brother Pig is taking too long Hey! You are taking too long I want the saw back right now But, but I’m still not done yet Can I use it for a little longer, please? Of course not I love knitting purses with many colours I can make them whenever and however I want to and I am so glad that I am here, all by myself Meow! What are you doing here? I thought I was all by myself Hi. You must be Sleepy Cat I’m Sister Pig. I would love to see what you are doing Can I join you? I guess you can What are you doing, Sleepy Cat? Knitting purses What patterns are you making? Wow, that is nice Are you making that purse in a different colour? I would love to learn how to do that Can I have a try? I only have one set of sewing needles But there are one, two. Two of us So I can’t let you have a try Please? If I give you my sewing needles then I won’t have any to sew my purse. So, no aww The animals don’t seem to be happy with one another This won’t do, something must be done Who should we look for for help? Farmer Madison, we need your help Baby Pig, Little Red Hen, both of you look flustered Is there anything I can help on? [whispering] Hmm. I think I know what to do Chatty Duck and Brother Pig, Sleepy Cat and Sister Pig how about the two pairs of you take turns? -Take turns?
-Oh, take turns I get it. I’ll go first No, I’ll go first No, I’ll go first No no no, I’ll go first -No, me
-No, me -Me
-Me Chatty Duck, Brother Pig, wait wait wait This is not how you take turns -No?
-No Taking turns mean each of you must let the other one have a turn to use the saw Oh. Take turns -I get it
-Yeah, okay You go first No, you go first No no no, you go first -No, you
-No, you -I say you
-You Chatty Duck, Brother Pig, wait, wait, wait This is still not how you take turns -No?
-No Taking turns means, one of you gets to use the saw and the other one has to wait Then both of you swap The one who was waiting, now gets to use the saw And the one who was using the saw, now has to wait Oh. Take turns -I get it
-Yeah, okay -I’ll use the saw
-And I’ll wait Excuse me, can I have the turn now? -Sure, here you go
-Thank you Excuse me, can I have the turn now? -Sure, here you go
-Thank you Hey Chatty Duck, Brother Pig, both of you did it Both of you are taking turns Take turns So this is how we take turns I guess I can take turns using the sewing needles with you too That’s right I didn’t know sharing is so much fun I now have a new friend too I am so glad we share ‘Just when things are getting better in the Little Red Farm the animals face with another problem Farmer Madison is ill He is so ill, he has to be brought back to his home far away to be taken care of by his son, Brother Eddie Farmer Madison, I will miss you Goodbye Farmer Madison -Get well soon
-Bye bye Goodbye my dear animal friends Goodbye How I wish Farmer Madison is still here with us He had always been here to harvest delicious fruits with us in the morning Happy? Happy? Yeah? Are you okay? You look sad Nothing much, I just don’t feel good I miss Farmer Madison Remember, he will come back once he’s well But it really feels like Farmer Madison should be here now Is he coming back for dinner? Or is he joining us for lunch later? I don’t think so, buddy This makes me really sad, Brother Pig I’ve never done anything without Farmer Madison by my side and now he is so far away from us Well, but look on the bright side I’m sure Brother Eddie will take really good care of Farmer Madison But still I am feeling very sad Look Happy I know how it is like when Farmer Madison is gone but it is not going to be for long We just have to wait for a little while more I don’t think I’ve ever felt so sad Is Happy alright? I don’t think so Happy, there you are Can I sit here with you? I know you are feeling sad that Farmer Madison is away from us Uh huh And you know what, I feel sad too You do? Of course I do Not just me the other Little Red Farm animals too We are all sad because we miss Farmer Madison a lot Why must Farmer Madison fall ill? Why isn’t he here with us now? I don’t know but what I know is it is okay to have all these thoughts and feelings It helps to talk to someone about how we feel Like what we are doing now? Yes, and it feels better than keeping it all inside, doesn’t it? Yeah, I do feel a little better now There are a lot of friends you can talk to here like Chatty Duck, Sleepy Cat and the three little pigs Yeah, you can always talk to us We are your friends Without Farmer Madison around I was afraid that there would be no one to take care of us but guess what I still have all of you here and we will take care of one another Yeah. We will stay and work hard together We are here for one another and remember Happy, we are here for you. Always I may be small but I can give you a big hug when you need one Aww. Thank you everyone I feel so much better now And if you really miss Farmer Madison you can always give him a call to tell him how much you missed him That’s a brilliant idea Yeah It was so nice talking to Farmer Madison on the phone I am happy he is getting better now Hmm, it’s such a nice day today I shall water the crops in the field But first I’ll have to go collect some water from the pond with this pail Oh boy Baby Pig Chatty Duck, what’s going on? You look anxious I sure am, Baby Pig I have a bad news for you What bad news? There is no more water in our pond It’s empty What? No water? Says who? Says me I was at the pond and there was nothing I could scoop up with See No water, and it is called a pond? I can’t believe this Does that mean I can’t water the crops anymore? Yeah, all the water has gone missing This is a big problem What should we do? How would I know? I’m just a Baby Pig Ah ha. Little Red Hen you came here just at the right time Chatty Duck, Baby Pig, what’s going on? We have a big problem There is nothing left in our pond It’s empty Could the Big Bad Wolf have made his way here and drank it all up? Silly piggy, of course not He wouldn’t have such a big stomach for it You see, it hasn’t been raining for a very long time And And when there is no rain the pond won’t be filled Hey, maybe that is why the pond is empty Yeah. But I bet we can figure this out to find another way to get our water But how? Maybe we can come up with a you know, a plan Oh yeah. A plan. A plan Umm wait. A plan? What is a plan? A plan is a list of things to do to get something done Oh. So what kind of a plan? Well, we shall think about it Think, think, think Ah. I know how we can solve this Tell us But first we need to get the other animals here too Happy, Sleepy Cat Where are you? Brother Pig, Sister Pig, we need you here Right now we have a plan on how to get our water Yes, show us the plan, Little Red Hen Here it is, here’s the plan We can set up a small market to sell what we have in the farm in exchange for water Ah, what a brilliant plan Ya, I think it is a very good plan So what should we sell? Ah yes this brings us to the next part of the plan Firstly, we can sell the fruits that we have grown in our farm Oh, I can harvest the fruits with Brother Pig I would love to do it. Consider it done Secondly, we can sell Sleepy Cat’s handmade purses Sure, I’ll have more made but of course with my best knitting pal -Sister Pig
-Yeah. That’s right Thirdly, I can prepare homemade corn cakes and jam to sell Count me in too And lastly I know, I know. I can help to set up the market Yes, that would be great Thank you, Chatty Duck I think this plan is working out great Yeah, so far it looks like it is Now that all of us have something to do shall we get going with it? Yeah. We better stick to the plan ‘The farm animals work hard together to set up the market Soon, word spread about the fresh fruits beautiful purses and delicious homemade corn cakes and jam Their customers came from near and far to buy the produce The market is eventually a success and the animals got the water they need’ Look at how much water we have now I can finally have water for the crops No more empty pail
