Lu Ban and the saw
A long time ago, there was a craftsman.
His name was Lu Ban.
One day, Lu Ban was at work on a mountain.
A leaf cut his finger.
Lu Ban thought, "How could such a small leaf hurt my finger?"
He looked at the leaf carefully.
There were many teeth on the leaf, and the teeth were sharp.
"Could I make a tool with teeth like these?I could cut things with it easily,"Lu Ban said to himself
Soon Lu Ban made a saw.
It was the first saw in the world.
People are still using this tool today.
