A Fabulous Book “The Good Earth”

In the Rueifong’s afterschool tutoring class A, all students were assigned to read the book “The Good Earth” in March. One day our teacher told the social worker, “The book was great. They (the students) also said it’s great.” The social worker didn’t keep the words in mind.

Afterward, when most students went to play during a break between tutoring classes, two students silently stayed in the classroom and took the book “The Good Earth” from the book box. They sat on the chairs quietly and read the book with great interest. Seeing this scene, the social worker was deeply touched.

Until the end of the break, even when the other students started to read English, the two students were unaware of the beginning of the English class. They bent their attention on reading the fabulous book “The Good Earth”.

The two students spent only two days finishing reading the book “The Good Earth”. Then they seriously asked the social worker, “What else can we do?” (They thought they had nothing to do in the reading class because it was the “assigned” book.) The social worker gave them two extra books: “The Yearling” and “The Last Day of Pompeii” and they already finished. Currently they are reading “Sans famille” and “Robinson Crusoe”, the books included in the anthology of world masterpiece for the youth.
