Little Mynah was at home in the tree, chirping with her feathered friends,
Karim was trying to read.
What a noisy tree! said Karim
Sounds in our neighbourhood
Noisy? asked Little Mynah.
Karim followed Little Mynah to check out noise in the neighbourhood. Each time, the neighbours replied Look! Listen!
Karim looked and listened.
NILA NILA NILA!
NOT NOISY! said Karim.
Sounds like trouble!
If you understand who or what is making the noise, sometimes it’s no longer annoying or disturbing. You may even like the noise!
What noises do you like in your neighbourhood?
