Neha’s Alarm Clock

Narrator : 
 Ring! Ring! Ring! Off goes the alarm clock at six in 
the morning. Neha makes a face and covering her ears with a 
pillow, snuggles under the warm blanket. But she knows she 
has to get up. She mutters to herself.
 This alarm clock always rings at six and pulls me out 
of the bed! It’s so unfair...Oh, how I would love to sleep a 
little longer in the morning! I wish this clock would forget its 
job sometimes.
Something falls. Neha smiles.
 Oh! 
My clock has 
fallen. How 
happy I am! 
Tomorrow I 
can get up 
late.
Next morning 
there is no 
alarm. So 
Neha sleeps 
and sleeps. 
The small 
chirpy birds

which come to the window sill every morning find 
Neha still sleeping.
 Wake up dear! Wake up fast!
 Neha gets up with a start.
 Oh, no. If it’s not the alarm clock, it’s these 
birds… why don’t they leave me alone?
 Even this wish of Neha’s comes true. The 
next morning there is not only no alarm clock, there 
are no birds either. But there is someone else who 
does not want her to miss the school bus. Can you 
guess who it is? The big bright Sun! He fills Neha’s 
room with a warm smile.

RELAX! Today is Sunday!
