A king and a queen live in a large palace. They have a beautiful daugh- ter. Her hair is like gold. The king and queen love her very much. They give her many nice toys. Now, it is summer time. Near the palace is a dark forest. There are many tall trees in the forest. In the middle of the forest, there is a small pond. On hot days, the pretty young princess plays near the pond. The princess has a golden ball. It is her favorite toy. She throws the ball high into the air, and catches it. Then she bounces the ball on the ground. The ball is fun to play with.
