The old woman showed the little girl what the pot could do. The porridge started to bubble in the little porridge pot. When the magic porridge pot was full of hot, creamy porridge the old lady said, “Stop, little pot, Stop.” “Cook, little pot, cook!” she said.
The little girl could hardly believe her eyes! The little girl took the magic porridge pot home and told her mother all about it. The magic porridge pot stopped making porridge.
Her mother was really excited. As soon as her daughter had gone out to play, she got the magic porridge pot out of the cupboard. She couldn’t wait to try it. “Cook, little pot, cook.” said the little girl’s mother.
