Her mother always said,”Reading can open up new worlds and brighten your life,Jessica!”Read more books.It’s good to know more words! Ask me for help if you don’t know how to read them.” However,Jessica did not listen to her mother ”Thump! Thump!” She just continued playing her drums. One day at school, Jessica’s teacher, Mr Johnson, brought some storybooks to class.He asked a few students to read the stories aloud to the class.Jessica was chosen to read the first book.She took a look at the first page of the book and panicked! “Jessica,don’t be shy.Please start reading,”said Mr Johnson. “Once...Once...”Jessica wanted to cry!
