The text: "What must animals do?"

People have got many pets at home. There are a lot of animals at the Zoo too. They are: lions and tigers, hares and wolves, monkeys and crocodiles, rabbits and horses. When the animals are hungry, they must eat fruit and vegetables, meat and fish. When they are thirsty, they must drink juice, water or milk. Animals must not eat many sweets too, much chocolate and ice-cream, they must not drink tea, coffee and Coke. Animals must play games and walk, but they must not cry. They must not get up early in the morning, but all animals must wash their hands and faces before they eat. Big animals must look after their babies and the babies must be good.
