The Year of Sharing (level 2)

The Year of Sharing (level 2)The Year of Sharing (level 2)

Richard is bored with the quiet life in his village. He would like to have a motor-car and drive it … very fast. But Richard lives in a future world where there are no cars, only bicycles and small villages and green forests.

And now he is 12 years old, and like the other children, he must do his Year of Sharing. He must live alone in the forest with the wild animals. He must learn to share his world; he must learn how animals live and eat and fight… and die.
