BR 17: Freckles

And - and I love your freckles! (p.18)

「freckles penguin readers」の画像検索結果     Every one must have their own complex regarding their looks or behaviors. Susie, a protagonist in this book has freckles, and she hates them all the time. Because of it, she isn't confident and good at talking with guys. In contrast, Donna, her friend has pretty hair and beautiful blue eyes and she is popular among classmates. In a sense, Donna looks down upon Susie and feels comfortable. One day,  a nice boy shows up and Donna tries to appeal to him, but he isn't interested in her because he loves Susie!! I think not every guy always like beautiful girls and some complexes are liked by them.

     This book is Penguin readers series. I think in this series, many students feels the same idea with the characters, so it's easy to understand the plot and system.
I want you to read this book.

Yes, Mr Bean was a friend now. (p.35)

He goes to America and every time he makes mistakes, he tries to change it into good things. People call him an ugly man or a stupid man, but he doesn't forget to smile and keep good relationships. This is why I chose this book. He also has been thanking a family who takes care of him. I think people have personal traits and diversities. This book shows us how we should make other people happier and face own challenges.

BR 13: Jack and the Westbourne fair

Jack was in the headmaster's office for the second time that day. and this time as definitely worse. (p.25)

「jack and the westbourne fair」の画像検索結果     Jack is called a problem child. He doesn't do his homework, take classes seriously, and often spray graffiti on walls because he doesn't like people around him. That's why I chose this book. These type of students may think they want other people to acknowledge their personality. In Jack's case, he helps a child who is lost in an amusement park and his parents discover his good point. I think there is few opportunities to think about these students in schools in Japan, so I want teachers to give students tips, how to face the problem.


     This book is Helbling Readers series. This series is focused on students and schools, so I recommend you to read this book if you want to be teachers.
