It is winter. The cold wind whistles through the branches of the trees.
正值冬季,寒风呼啸着吹过树枝。

Mr. Brown has done his day's work, and his children, Harry and Kate, have come home from school. They learned their lessons well today, and both feel happy.
布朗先生结束了白天的工作,他的两个孩子——哈里与凯特放学回家了。他们白天的功课学得很好,两人都很开心。

Tea is over. Mrs. Brown has put the little sitting room in order. The fire burns brightly. One lamp gives light enough for all. On the stool is a basket of fine apples. They seem to say, “Won't you have one?”
全家人喝完茶后,布朗夫人把小客厅整理得井井有条。炉火烧得通红,台灯照亮了整个房间。凳子上摆着一篮子红通通的大苹果,似乎在说:“难道不想来一个吗?”

Harry and Kate read a story in a new book. The father reads his newspaper, and the mother mends Harry's stockings.
哈里与凯特在认真阅读新书里的故事。爸爸在看报纸,妈妈则在给哈里补袜子。

By and by, they will tell one another what they have been reading about, and will have a chat over the events of the day.
过一会儿,他们就会相互讲述自己刚才看到的故事,并聊聊白天发生的事。

Harry and Kate's bedtime will come first. I think I see them kiss their dear father and mother a sweet good night.
到了哈里与凯特睡觉的时间了。他们亲了亲爱的爸爸妈妈,并向他们道了晚安。

Do you not wish that every boy and girl could have a home like this?
你难道不希望每个孩子都能有这样一个温暖的家吗?
