Mary aveva una colorata collezione di calzini. Ogni paio era speciale, dalle righe ai pois.

Pretend to put on your favorite pair of socks.

Ogni mattina Mary ne sceglieva un paio. Sapeva che era suo dovere indossare i calzini.

Act like you're choosing between two favorite things.

Mary is choosing socks for the day in her bedroom.
But one morning, she found one sock missing. 'Without my pair, one foot will be freezing!'

Pretend to look under your bed for a lost item.

She looked in her drawer. She checked under the bed. 'Where could it be?' Mary anxiously said.

Act like you're searching around your room.

Mary searches her room for her missing sock.
Then Mary wondered, with a bit of a frown, if the missing sock was in the laundry pile down.

Poi Mary si chiese, un po' accigliata, se il calzino mancante fosse nel mucchio della biancheria giĂą.

Simulate walking down the stairs with caution.

Mary suspects the laundry pile might be where the sock is.
Downstairs in the laundry room, Mary began to look, sorting through colors and whites, every cranny and nook.

Al piano di sotto, nella lavanderia, Mary cominciò a guardare, vagliando i colori e i bianchi, ogni fessura e angolo.

Pretend to sort laundry into different piles.

She found socks with rips and some with stains, but the match to her pair seemed lost with no gains.

As she folded, she learned an important lesson that day; to mind her stuff, or it might go astray.

Quando ha lasciato, quel giorno ha imparato una lezione importante; a badare alle sue cose, altrimenti potrebbe andare fuori strada.

Mary reflects on the importance of taking care of her belongings.
Finally, under a sheet, the lost sock was found! Mary cheered with joy and jumped around.

Finalmente, sotto un lenzuolo, è stato ritrovato il calzino smarrito! Mary esultò di gioia e saltò di qua e di là.

Jump up and cheer as if you won a prize.

The missing sock is found under a sheet, Mary is delighted.
With both socks on, warm and bright, Mary was ready to play outside in the light.

Con entrambi i calzini addosso, caldi e luminosi, Mary era pronta per giocare fuori alla luce.
