Although very short and very basic, I thought this was a cute text, so I'm sharing it. :)

-----

“小猫种鱼”

农民把玉米种在地里。到了秋天收了很多玉米。‎
农民把花生种在地里。到了秋天收了很多花生。‎
小猫看见了,把小鱼种在地里。他想,到了秋天,一定会收到很多小鱼。

-----

I got it from a Chinese course.‎

P.S.: Someone (cough, cough, Jun, cough, cough, Ming) has just told me it's cheesy, but I still think it's cute. ;)

A translation shouldn't be left to someone who never gets to a conversational intermediate level, but since Mr. Liang is around to help, I'll give it a full try myself.

First, since this has been a heated topic in the forum, here is the same story in traditional Chinese:

“小貓種魚”

農民把玉米種在地裡。到了秋天收了很多玉米。
農民把花生種在地裡。到了秋天收了很多花生。
小貓看見了,把小魚種在地裡。他想,到了秋天,一定會收到很多小魚。

And here's my (weak) attempt of writing a good translation:

'Kitten planting fish'

The farmer planted a maize corn. Finally in autumn he harvested a lot of maize.
The farmer planted a peanut. Finally in autumn he harvested lots of peanuts.
The kitten saw it and planted some little fish. He believes that, in autumn, he'll certainly get lots of fish.

My English is too bad for me to understand that text and correct it, and the words you used sound learned, so I'll conclude it's correct. ;)
