I was sitting by the window,
Lightly kissing my sleeping cat,
The half-finished coffee on the table,
The blowing fan on the wall,
The sweet music on the radio.

A little girl was riding a yellow bike,
Slowly passing by my window,
The light wind on her face,
The flying hair behind her ears,
The quiet lazy summer afternoon.

Next month the thirty-year-old coffee shop is going to close. It’s sad that we have to say good-bye to our old friend. My wife and I are now planning to write a book about it. We will get together with our friends at the coffee shop next Friday afternoon and talk about how to write this book. A copy of the book will be given to everyone who loved the coffee shop. We will also send a copy to the owner of the coffee shop, Mrs. Peterson, as a way to show her our thanks. If you are interested in joining us, please come to the coffee shop at 2 o’clock.

Best wishes,

Ron and Lisa

Green Plan in Wonder City

Make new out of the old!

Since 1996, Wonder City has started a green plan and has been greatly successful in many ways. Places that were not used anymore, like railways, factories, and open lands, have been changed and brought to new life. They have now become parks, restaurants, museums, or shopping centers. They look fresh and clean with trees, flowers, and pieces of art. Olde River, for example, is now a pink belt in the spring with born-to-smiles on both of its sides. They are beautiful and smell great. Many people take a walk or go bicycling along the banks of the river. Because of this plan, the city has become cleaner and younger. Every year in May, a big green festival is celebrated in Wonder City. People from other cities go to the festival to learn how to make their own cities more beautiful.

43.
What is the reading about?
An art festival.
A vacation plan.
The change of a city.
The history of a river.
44.
Which is NOT part of the plan?
Growing trees.
Building hotels.
Making use of art.
Using closed factories.
45.
What is a born-to-smile?
A belt.
A color.
A flower.
A piece of art.
