– H A P P Y S P R I N G –
Dear teachers and friends, Good morning. I’m Xena from Grade 6. Today my topic is: Learning to be a brave, smart, kind child.
Shakespeare said, “Books are the nourishment of all mankind.” Recently, I read an interesting book called The Wonderful Adventures Of Nils.This book won the Nobel Prize for Literature!
Quietly reading a book is an interesting experience. One part of this book says, “Boy can’t believe that he’s turned into a fox. This is probably a dream, a kind of illusion! I am sure I will be a man again in a little while, he thought. Suddenly he shivered with fear. ” I chuckled.
The book is about a fourteen-year-old boy named Niels.His parents are hardworking farmers.He has many shortcomings. He does not love animals. He is also very naughty and rude. During a play, he was enchanted by an elf and turned into a tiny person. He was as small as a thumb. He set off on a long journey with geese by riding his big gander in an accident.Through this journey Niels became a brave, intelligent and loving teenager.
After reading this book, I admire Niels for he can face his shortcomings and correct them bravely. He was a bad boy who was hated by all the animals. In the journey with the wild geese, Nils felt sadness, fear, and also happiness and joy. Niels grew up gradually though many trials.When his parents wanted to kill the big gander, Niels stood up bravely. At that moment, he knew love, caring for the weak, taking responsibility. He was no longer the selfish Nils but a kind, brave, rational, animal loving, popular good boy.
The goose looked ordinary and small ,but he believed in constantly striving upward. He experienced hardship and danger with Akkar and travellled the great rivers and mountains, felt the warmth of the world and fulfilled a seemingly impossible dream. We should be like him to break through ourselves, improve ourselves, strive to realize our dreams, accomplish impossible things, and not give up when meet setbacks, go forward!
This book tells us to be loving, to help people around us and we will receive joy from it, don’t hold back when we’re in crisis, use our brain to find ways to solve the problem, love animals, and always be compassionate.
After reading this book, I understand that life should have persistent belief which is sincere, brave, friendly, helpful. Now I deeply understand “Roses given, fragrance in hand. “That’s all for today, Thank you!
