聰明

輕鬆教小小孩數學素養,簡單的數學,就在詩裡面。

Smart
By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
‘Cause I’m his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
‘Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes — I guess he don’t know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just ’cause he can’t see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head —
Too proud of me to speak!

聰明

爸爸給我一張一元的鈔票
因為我是他最聰明的兒子
我拿它換了二個閃亮亮的25分錢銅板
二個可比一個多!

然後我拿著二個25分錢銅板
跟祿換了三個10分錢銅板
祿他可能沒搞懂
三個可比二個多!

這時來了盲眼貝茲
大概因為他看不見
他用四個5分錢銅板換我的三個10分錢銅板
四個可比三個多!

然後我拿著四個5分錢的銅板
到巷口的一家草料行
這呆瓜居然用五個1分錢銅板跟我換
五個可比四個多!

然後我跑去跟爸爸炫耀
爸爸脹紅著臉,什麼也沒說
他閉上眼、搖搖頭 —
一定很以我為榮!
