She sits on the middle-sized one, but it is too low. She sits on the smallchair and it is just right. On the table, there are three bowls. There is hot porridge in the bowls. She tries the firstone, but it is too hot; the second one is too cold, and the thirdone is just right, so she eats it all. Afterthat, she goes upstairs. She looks around. There are three beds, so she sits down. The biggest bed is too hard. The middle-sized bed is too soft. The littleone is just right, so she lies down. Soon, she falls asleep. In the meantime, the family of three bears comes home —the Papabear, the Mamabear, and the Babybear. They look around. They say, "Who's been sitting in our chairs and eating our porridge?"
