一二三四五六七八九十。“On, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten.”

小小走累了,他騎上一頭驢。小小數Xiao-xiao was too tired to walk, so he got on one of the donkeys and counted again,

一二三四五六七八九—-One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine—-
哎呀!不好了!少了一頭驢。“Oh-no! A donkey is missing.”

小小急得跳下來,他又數:Xiao-xiao panicked and jumped off the donkey.  He then counted again:

一二三四五六七八九 十。嗯!沒錯!Hmm,  It’s correct, he said.

小小騎上驢,他再數:Xiao-xiao got on the donkey’s back again.  He counted one last time.

二三四五六七八九—One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine—-

哎呀!怎麽又少了一頭?“Oh-no! A donkey is missing again.”
