(Russian: Маша и Медведь, Masha i Medved)
Once upon a time there lived an old man and woman who had a granddaughter named Masha. One day some friends of Masha’s decided to go to the forest to gather mushrooms and berries and they came to Masha’s house to ask her to go with them.
"Please, Granny and Grandpa," said Masha, "do let me go to the forest."
"You may go but see that you keep close to the others and do not lose sight of them or you might get lost," the two old people replied.
