There once was a mother goat who had seven kids. She loved them all very much. One day mother goat needed to get food for her hungry children. She called them together and said, “Children, I’m going out. Keep the door locked and do not let the wolf in. He wants to eat you!He’s very sneaky so he might wear a disguise. But you will know him by his deep voice and black paws.” “Yes, Mama,” the seven kids said, “we promise to be very careful. Don’t worry about us.” And so the mother goat went out. Not long after this, someone knocked at the door and said in a deep voice, “Open up, children, it’s your mother. I have a treat for each of you.”
