No 70. Exercise 15.
Mike: Hello, Nick! Where are you going?
Nick: To the library.
Mike: To the library? I didn’t know you were fond of going there.
Nick: You’re right! I seldom visit libraries. But now I must write a story for my Russian class about a trip to a place I have never been to.
Mike: Did your teacher tell you to go to the library?
Nick: No, he didn’t. He asked us to use our imagination, but I can’t.
Mike: So, what are you going to do?
Nick: To look through some books. That’s why I’m going to the library.
Mike: Good luck to you!
No 71. Exercise 16.
(By Adelaide Love)
A book, I think, is very like
A little golden door,
That takes me into places
Where I’ve never been before.
It leads me into fairyland
Or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door
Always stands ajar.
