高一英语下学期阅读理解(15 篇) (上半学期) (一) 一 If you have to miss a meal a day, which meal will cause you fewest health problems if you don’t eat it? If you have to make a decision of this type, most people (especially very busy people) will choose to skip breakfast. However, many experts in the field of health consider breakfast ( the meal which ―break‖ you ―fast‖ ) to be the most important t meal of the day. If we eat a good breakfast, they say, we will have the energy and nutrients (营养) we need to begin our working day with vigor(活力) and stay hopeful with good honor. However, many people skip breakfast or substitute a cup of coffee for a well balanced meal. What happens if we ignore the importance of breakfast? One recent study conducted in the United States tested a large number of people. Participants included both males and females who ranged in age from 12 to 83. The results showed that if a person eats an adequate breakfast, he or she will work more efficiently and more productively than if he or she skips breakfast or eats a very poor breakfast. This fact appears to be especially true if a person’s work involves mental(脑力的) activities. The study showed that if school-children eat fruit, eggs, bread and milk before going to school, they will learn more quickly and will be able to concentrate (集中)on their lessons for a longer period of time than if their breakfast is inadequate. The study also showed that contrary to what people believe, if you skip breakfast, you will not lose weight. This is because people become so hungry if they skip breakfast that they eat too much for lunch and end up gaining weight instead of losing. So remember, if you want to lose weight, skipping breakfast will not help you. You will likely lose more weight if you decrease your other meals. 1. According to experts, breakfast is the most important meal of the day because _____. A. a good breakfast breaks you down fast B. you’ll lose weight quickly if you skip breakfast C. breakfast provides what a person needs to work D. after a long night, you’ll feel very hungry 2. The underlined part ―substitute a cup of coffee for a well balanced meal‖(Para. 2) probably means _______. A. to exchange a cup of coffee for a well balanced meal. B. To drink a cup of coffee instead of a well balanced meal. C. To change a cup of coffee into a well balanced meal. D. To regard a cup of coffee as a well balanced meal. 3. The example of school-children in para.3 shows that _______. school-children will be quick and attentive all day if they eat breakfast a proper breakfast will make mental workers more efficient fruit, eggs, bread and milk are the best breakfast for mental workers school-children who have breakfast are much brighter than those who don’t 4. Which of the following is NOT true according to Para. 4? Some people skip breakfast because they want to be slimmer. Most people who skip breakfast actually eat more for lunch. People put on weight because they eat too much breakfast. Skipping breakfast won’t help people who want to lose weight. 5. The best title of the passage is _______. A. How to Lose Weight B. What’s a Healthy Diet

D. Breakfast – A Meal That Breaks You Fast 二 Some people may be wondering why traffic safety clothing is so important to the person who is involved(涉及到) in traffic control. Traffic safety clothing can provide high visibility(能见度) and serve as life saving wear for those who work in and around moving traffic as a part of their job. Traffic safety clothing makes the wearer more noticeable. They are most needed for the person working in the traffic department. It becomes necessary that the wearers choose traffic safety clothing that would best suit their job. A traffic person is expected to wear a bright color so that he stands conspicuous in a road that is full of traffic. When the traffic clothing comes in reflecting(反 射) bright light, the wearer is noticed easily. Traffic safety clothing also has the reflective stripes(条纹) and it is these stripes that make the wearer seen even during the dark hours. Safety traffic clothing acts as a very important role in preventing accidents and also makes sure at the same time that the drivers are surely saved. When there is someone on the road wearing traffic safety clothing that is bright in color, it becomes easy for the driver to watch out. With the development of the Internet, shopping for the safety clothing has become very easy and if you are involved traffic control, you can buy what suits you through Supply Line Direct.com.

Failure is said to be the best teacher. People learn and have more confidence in what they know through experimenting until a solution is found, which once resulted in failure. For every successful achievement, there have been one or more failures. But those who we consider successful are those who refuse to accept failure and believe success is the other side of failure. The incandescent lamp (白炽灯) was invented after 1000 failures. If the inventor Edison had stopped after he tried 100 times without the desired result , what would have been the result of such effort? Any time you see new products and new inventions, think of failures that are not accepted. C. Surprising Results of a Study

Any time your effort is not bringing a desired result, you don’t have to call it a failure. Call it a challenge. What is the difference between the two? One is negative, while the other is positive. What you need is positive thinking to achieve success. Failure means there is no way out or no other choice, but a challenge is a question mark asking another way out of the situation, a solution to the problem, the job at hand. Keep dreaming, and keep moving—that is the way to success. A wise man once said if you cannot fly, run. If you can not run, walk. If you can not walk, crawl (爬);just keep on moving. If you fall down, you have to get up and start moving. If not, other people will place the feet on you towards their achievement. What you call failure and give up is what someone will go about with just a little extra effort to reach achievement. 1. What does the passage mainly tell us? A. We shouldn’t accept failure if we want to achieve success. B. Every successful achievement has many failures. C. Edison didn’t succeed until he had thousands of failures. D. The secret of success lies in the belief in yourself. 2. The author gives the example of the incandescent lamp (白炽灯) to show . A. failure is the mother of success B. well begun is half done C. practice makes perfect D. no pleasure without pain 3. The author suggests that we should treat failure as a challenge because . A. challenges give us confidence B. failure holds back success C. challenges can encourage us D. failure brings negative feelings 4. We can infer from the third paragraph that . A. failure means a question mark B. different attitudes brings different results C. we ought to call failure a challenge D. we can achieve success after failure 5. In the last paragraph the author is trying to encourage us to . A. find a proper solution to failure B. run instead of walking C. never fall down before you succeed D. never give up trying 四 A pair of twin-brother ligers, a rare lion-tiger hybrid(杂种), have become superstars in China's southernmost island province of Hainan after becoming the first ligers in the country to reach their first birthday. Tens of thousands of tourists visited the liger brothers at Hainan Tropical Wildlife Park during the week-long May Day holiday that ended on Sunday, hoping to catch a glimpse of the rare animals. At least 10,000 people signed a red banner when the park celebrated the liger's birthday on May 2. People expressed the hope that the twins would be strong and healthy, the Hainan Daily reports. Zookeepers even made the twins a special birthday cake out of beef and eggs. The ligers, born on May 2, 2005 , are named 'Ping Ping' and 'An An', which together translate as 'safe and sound'. Their mother Huan Huan is a six-year-old tigress and their father is a four-year – old lion named Xiao Erhei. The couple first gave birth to a liger in June 2004 but the cub (幼 兽) died of respiratory(呼吸的)failure 72 hours later. The pregnancy (怀孕) rate for lion-tiger couples is only between one and two percent and the cubs normally have a short life expectancy due to the differences in their chromosomes(染色体). Zoologists say only six to eight ligers are living in the world. China's first tiger-lion hybrid cub

was born at Hongshan Zoo in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, in 2002. But it died a week later. Ping Ping and An An have broken the survival record set by a liger who lived for 113 days at Hongshan Zoo. 1 Why can Ping Ping and An An become superstars? A. Because they are the most beautiful ligers. B. Because they are the cleverest ligers. C. Because they are the most attractive ligers. D. Because they are the first ligers to live for a year. 2.

China's longest living twin ligers celebrate their lst birthday B. Why can't ligers in the world live long C. How to raise ligers safely D. The story behind the ligers 五 Second Life is a 3D, online world in which computer users can create a new self and live a different life. Second Life is one of the most popular new online games. But unlike other games, Second Life is not about winning or losing. Second Life is technically a computer game. But people involved in it do not consider it a game because the players create everything. Second Life is more for socializing and creating communities. Users of Second Life are called residents. To take part, they must create an avatar, or an electronic image of themselves. Some avatars look like humans, while others look like animals or imaginary creatures. Inside the Second Life world, residents live in different versions of themselves. They build homes, run businesses, buy and sell things, work, play, and attend school.

If you have the wish and really made a conscious (自觉的) effort, then you can quite easily improve your ability to remember things. But even if you are successful, there are times when your memory seems to play tricks on you. Sometimes you remember things that really did not happen. One morning last week, for example, I got up and found that I had left the front door unlocked all night, yet I clearly remember locking it carefully the night before. Memory ―trick‖ work the other way as well. Once in a while you remember not doing something, and then find out that you did. One day last month, for example, I was sitting in a barber 理发师) ( shop waiting for my turn to get a haircut, and suddenly I realized that I had got a haircut two days before at the barber shop across the street from my office. We always seem to find something funny and amusing(有趣的)in incidents caused by people’s forgetfulness or absent-mindedness. Stories about absent-minded professors have been told for years, and we never got tired of hearing new ones. Unfortunately, however, absent-mindedness is not always funny. There are times when ―trick‖ of our memory can cause us great trouble. 1. If you want to have a good memory, .

Get Rid of Absent-mindedness 七 Diet Coke, diet Pepsi, diet pills, no-fat diet, vegetable diet… We are surrounded by the word ―diet‖ everywhere we look and listen. We have so easily been attracted by the promise and potential of diet products that we have stopped thinking about what diet products are doing to us. We are paying for products that harm us psychologically (心理) and physically. Diet products significantly weaken us psychologically. On one level, we are not allowing our brain to admit that our weight problems lie not in actually losing the weight, but in controlling the consumption(消费) of fatty, high-calorie, unhealthy foods. Diet products allow us to jump over the thinking stage and go straight for the scale(秤) instead. All we have to do is to swallow(吞咽) or recognize the word ―diet‖ in food labels. On another level, diet products have greater psychological effects. Every time we have a zero-calorie drink, we are telling ourselves without our awareness that we don’t have to work to get results. Diet products make people believe that gain comes without pain, and that life can be without resistance and struggle. The danger of diet products lies not only in the psychological effects they have on us, but also in the physical harm that they cause. Diet foods can indirectly harm our bodies because consuming them instead of healthy foods means we are preventing our bodies from having basic nutrients(营 养成分). Diet foods and diet pills contain zero calorie only because the diet industry has created chemicals to produce these wonder products. Diet products may not be nutritional, and the chemical that go into diet products are potentially dangerous. Now that we are aware of the effects that diet products have on us, it is time to seriously think about buying them. Losing weight lies in the power of minds, not in the power of chemicals. Once we realize this, we will be much better able to resist diet products, and therefore prevent the psychological harm that comes from using them . 1 From paragraph 1,we learn that ______. diet product fail to bring out people’s potential B people have difficulty in choosing diet products C diet products are misleading people D people are fed up with diet products 2 one psychological effect of diet products is that people tend to ______. try out a variety of diet foods B hesitate before they enjoy diet foods C Pay attention to their own eating habits D watch their weight rather than their diet 3. In Paragraph 3, ―gain comes without pain‖ probably means ______. A. losing weight is effortless B. it costs a lot to lose weight C. diet products bring no pain D. diet products are free from calories 4. Diet products indirectly harm people physically because such products ______. A are over-consumed B lack basic nutrients C are short of chemicals D provide too much energy 5. Which of the following can be the best title of the passage? A. diet products: a good choice for losing weight B. diet products and basic nutrients C. the diet zone: an attractive place D. the diet zone: a dangerous place 八 Everybody has one of those days when everything goes wrong. This is what happened to Harry.

He got up one morning very late because he had forgotten to wind up his alarm clock(闹钟). He tried to shave(刮脸)quickly and cut himself. When he got dressed he got blood all over his clean shirt, so he had to find another one. The only other shirt that was clean needed ironing (熨) so he , ironed it. While he was ironing it, there was a knock at the door. It was the man to read the electricity meter 表) He showed him where the meter was, said good-bye and found that the iron ( . had burnt a hole in his shirt. So he had to wear the one with the blood on it after all. By this time it was very late, so he decided he couldn’t go to work by bus. He telephoned for a taxi to take him to work. The taxi arrived and Harry got in and began to read the newspaper. In another part of the town, a man had killed a woman with a knife and was seen to run away in a taxi. When Harry’s taxi stopped outside his office, a policeman happened to be standing there. He saw the blood on Harry’s shirt, and took him to the police station. He was kept till 3 o’clock in the afternoon before the police were sure that he was not the man they wanted. When he finally arrived at the office at about four, his boss took a look at him and told him to go away and find another job. 1. Harry had _________ .

Although science has made big steps in making food more fit to eat, it has, at the same time, made many foods unfit to eat. Some research has shown that perhaps eighty percent of human illness is related to food and forty percent of cancer is related to food as well. That food is related to illness is not a new discovery. In 1945, some researchers realized that things commonly used to keep colour in meats and other food additives(添加剂)caused cancer. Yet, these additives remain in our food, and it is difficult to know which things on the wrappings (包装)of foods are helpful or harmful. The additives which we eat are not all so direct. Farmers often give penicillin to their animals, and because of this, penicillin has been found in the milk of cows. Sometimes similar tings are supplied to animals not for their health, but just to make a

profit. The farmers are simply trying to fatten the animals in order to get a higher price on the market. Although some countries have tried to control such things, the practice continues. 1. According to this passage, we can know . A. perhaps most of human illness is caused by what we eat B. perhaps most kinds of cancer are related to what people eat C. cancer was discovered in 1945 D. science has made food unfit to eat 2. Things that are used to keep colours in meats are . A. harmful B. useless C. helpless D. dangerous 3. All the additives .

Some wrappings of food are harmful. B. Farmers try to make more money on the market by fattening their animals. C. ―The practice continues‖ means ―things are still going on like that‖. D. We needn’t take care of what we eat. 十 In 1812, in a village near Paris, France, a little boy had a terrible accident. He hit himself in the eye with one of his father's sharp tools, and became blind. His name was Louis Braille, and he was only four years old. He was a clever little boy, and he soon learned to ―see‖ without his eyes. He touched things, or smelled them, or tasted them. His family described things to him. Although he couldn’t see people’s faces, he learned to recognize their voices. After his seventh birthday, Louis went to the little school in the village. But there weren’t any books for him. His classmates read his lessons to him and his sisters helped him with his homework. He learned his lessons well, but he couldn’t learn to read or write. In 1819, the village priest (牧师) told Louis Braille's story to the director of a famous school for blind boys. At this school, boys learned math, grammar, geography, history, and music. And they learned to read! Louis went to the school in Paris in February, 1819. He loved his classes and received high grades. He learned to play the piano and to knit (编织) hats and sweaters. And he learned to read — with his fingers! The raised-print letters in the books at school stood up from the surface of the paper. Louis could feel them with his fingers. He was able to recognize some of them easily, but some of them were difficult. The letters had to be very large, and sometimes there were only a few letters on a page. The books were huge and heavy. And they were expensive. There were only fourteen books in the school library! Louis read the three or four books for his class again and again. He tried to think of a better way to make books for blind people. He experimented with new alphabets. After about three years, Louis invented a system of raised dots. The other students thought

Louis's system was wonderful. They were able to read it easily, and they learned to write, too. Today, there are thousands of Braille books for blind people. Louis Braille was only fifteen years old when he invented his wonderful system! 1. Without his eyes, he could also ―see‖ by _________ . A. touching things B. smelling or tasting things C. trying to recognize people's voices D. all the above ways 2. He went to _________ in February, 1819. A. a famous school for blind boys in Paris B. a music school for blind people C. a private school for blind people D. a school for blind people far away from Paris 3.

A. the English alphabet B. a system of raised dots to make books for blind people C. books for blind people to learn maths D. grammar books for blind people 4. According to the passage, which of the following is true? A. His father’s carelessness made Louis Braille blind B. With the help of priest, Louis Braille went to the school in Paris in 1819 C. Louis Braille is the only one who reads with fingers in the school. D. It took him about 15 years to invent a system of raised dots 5. The main idea of this passage is that ____. A. Louis was a good student at the school in Paris B. he learned to ―see‖ with the help of books C. he invented a system of raised dots to make books easier for blind people to read D. there are thousands of Braille books for blind people 十一 What will man be like in the future — in 5,000 or even 50,000 years from now? We can only make guesses, of course, but we can be sure that he will be different from what he is today, for man is slowly changing all the time. Let us take an obvious example. Man, even five hundred years ago, was shorter than he is today. Now, on average, men are about three inches taller. Five hundred years is relatively a short period of time, so we may suppose that man will continue to grow taller. Again, in the modern world we use our brains a great deal. Even so, we still make use of only about 20% of the brain’s capacity(容量). As time goes on, however, we shall have to use our brains more and more, and finally we shall need our brains more and more, and finally we shall need larger ones! This is likely to bring a physical change too: the head, in particular the forehead, will grow larger. Nowadays our eyes are in constant use. In fact, we use them so much that very often they become weaker and we have to wear glasses. But over long period of time it is likely that man’s eyes will grow stronger. On the other hand, we tend to make less use of our arms and legs. These, as a result, are likely to grow weaker. At the same time, however, our fingers will grow more sensitive because they are used a great deal in modern life. But what about hair? This will probably disappear from the body altogether in course of time because it does not serve a useful purpose any longer. In the future, then, both sexes are likely to be bald. Perhaps all this gives the impression that future man will not be a very attractive creature to look at! This may well be true. All the same, in spite of all these changes, future man will still have a

lot in common with us. He will still be a human being, with thoughts and motions similar to our own. 1. The passage mainly tells us that __________. A. Man’s life will be different in the future B. Future man will look quite different from us C. Man is growing taller and uglier as time passes D. Man’s organs’ functions will change 2. What serves as the evidence that man is changing? A. Man has got stronger eyes now than he ever had. B. Man’s hair is getting thinner and thinner. C. Man’s arms and legs have become lighter and weaker. D. Man has been growing taller over the past 500 years. 3. The change in man’s size of the forehead is probably because __________. A. he makes use of only 20% of the brain’s capacity B. his brain has grown larger over the past centuries C. he will use his brain more and more as time goes on D. the other 80% of his brain will grow in due time 4. Which of the following is TRUE about a human being in the future? A. He is hairless because hair is no longer useful. B. He has smaller eyes and wears better glasses. C. His fingers grow weaker because he doesn’t have to make use of them. D. He thinks and feels in a different way. 5. It is implied that __________. A. human beings will become less attractive in the future B. body organs will become poorer if they are not used often C. human beings hope for a change in the future life D. future life is always predictable 十二 Let children learn to judge their own work. A child learning to talk does not learn by being corrected all the time: if corrected too much, he will stop talking. He notices a thousand times a day the difference between the language he uses and the language those around him use. Bit by bit, he makes the necessary changes to make his language like other people’s. In the same way, children learn to do all the other things they learn to do without being taught--- to walk, run, climb, whistle, ride a bicycle --- compare their own performances with those of more skilled people, and slowly make the needed changes. But in school we never give a child a chance to find out his mistakes for himself, let alone(更不用说) correct them. We do it all for him. We act as if we thought that he would never notice a mistake unless he was made to. Soon he becomes dependent on the teacher. Let him do it himself. Let him work out, with the help of other children if he wants it, what this word says, what the answer is to that problem, whether this is a good way of saying or doing this or not. If it is a matter of right answer, as it may be in mathematics or science, give him the answer book. Let him correct his own papers. Why should we teachers waste time on such routine(常规的) work? Our job should be to help the child when he tells us that he can’t find the way to get the right answer. Let’s end all this nonsense of grades, exams and marks. Let us throw them all out, and let the children learn what all educated persons must someday learn: how to measure their own understanding, how to know what they know or do not know. Let them get on with this job in the way that seems most sensible(合情理的) to them, with our help as school teachers if they ask for it. The idea that there is a body of knowledge to be learnt at school and used for the rest of one’s life is nonsense(无意义的) in a world as complicated

and rapidly changing as ours. Anxious parents and teachers say, ―But suppose they fail to learn something essential(基本的), something they will need to get on in the world?‖ Don’t worry! If it is essential, they will go out into the world and learnt it. 1. What does the writer think is the best way for children to think? A. By listening to their parents’ instructions. B. By asking a great many questions. C. By making mistakes and having them corrected. D. By copying what other people do. 2. What does the writer think teachers should NOT do? A. Give children correct answers. B. Point out children’s mistakes to them. C. Allow children to mark their own work. D. Encourage children to copy one another. 3. According to the passage, learning to speak and learning to ride a bike are _____. A. the most important skills. B. the basic skills children should master C. almost the same as learning other skills D. much different from learning other skills. 4. The writer is afraid that children will grow up into adults who are ______. A. too selfish B. too independent C. dependent and unable to use basic skills D. able to think for themselves 5. The passage makes us believe_______. A. while children learn to do something, they usually make the necessary changes B. Children won’t correct their mistakes until teachers point them out C. It is necessary for teachers to correct children’s papers and homework D. Children will learn better if they depend on their teachers and parents 十三 Macao is only forty miles from Hong Kong and it is easy to reach. You can get there by sea. It is an interesting place and it had a long history. Macao is part of China and most people living there are Chinese. The first Europeans to go to Macao came from Portugal. More than four hundred years ago the Portuguese went there to trade with China. Some settled and made their homes there. They built strong forts to guard the city and the harbor. They also built churches, schools, hospitals and other places. Slowly the city grew. People from many countries came to live and work in Macao. Today many people visit Macao.

Then slowly, there rocks broke up into smaller and smaller pieces. Finally stones, pebble(卵石)and grains of sand were formed. Many sorts of plants and animals lived and died on the surface of the earth. Their remains mixed up with the stones, pebbles and formed soil. The outmost layer of the earth is soil. There are many ways in which large pieces of rock break into smaller ones. Wind, water, heat and cold help to break up rocks. When winds blow grains of sand against a large rock for a long time, the softer layers of the rock are slowly worn away. These leave holes and crack (裂缝) the rock, in which become bigger and finally the rock breaks up into smaller pieces. The moving water of streams and rivers also help to break up rocks. As the water moves along, it carries with it small pieces of rock. These rub the larger ones. Thus, the larger rocks are worn down to smaller pieces. The heat of the sun is also helpful to breaking up rocks. When the sun shines, the rocks become very hot. If these rocks are suddenly cooled, they may crack. Ice also plays a part in making soil. Water in the cracks can turn into ice in cold weather. As this happens, it becomes bigger and the cracks become wider, and finally break into smaller pieces. 1. According to the passage, soil . A. forms very slowly B. is a mixture of stones, pebbles and sand C. make up the layers of the earth D. is becoming smaller and smaller 2.

If a large rock never moves, it will never break up. C. Even if a large rock never moves, it will break up. D. Ice in the cracks helps to break up rocks 5. The best title for this passage should be . A. Soil from Rocks B. Ways to Break up Rocks C. Soil on the Earth D. Soil, Outmost Layer of the Earth 十五 For years I wanted a flower garden. I’d spend hours thinking of different things I could plant that would look nice together. But then we had Matthew. And Marvin. And the twins, Alisa and Alan. And then Helen. Five children. I was too busy raising them to grow a garden.

Money was tight, as well as time. Often when my children were little, one of them would want something that cost too much, and I'd have to say, "Do you see a money tree outside? Money doesn't grow on trees, you know." Finally, all five got through high school and college and were off on their own. I started thinking again about having a garden. I wasn't sure, though. I mean, gardens do cost money, and after all these years I was used to living on a pretty lean no-frills budget. Then, one spring morning, On Mother’s Day, I was working in my kitchen. Suddenly, I realized that cars were tooting their horns (按喇叭) as they drove by. I looked out of the window and there was a new tree, planted right in my yard. I thought it must be a weeping willow (垂柳), because I saw things blowing around on all its branches. Then I put my glasses on - and I couldn't believe what I saw. There was a money tree in my yard! I went outside to look. It was true! There were dollar bills, one hundred of them, taped all over that tree. Think of all the garden flowers I could buy with one hundred dollars! There was also a note attached: "IOU eight hours of digging time. Love, Marvin." Marvin kept his promise, too. He dug up a nice ten-by-fifteen foot bed for me. And my other children bought me tools (工具), ornaments (装饰物), a trellis (棚架), a sunflower stepping stone and gardening books. That was three years ago. My garden's now very pretty, just like what I wanted. When I go out and weed or tend my flowers, I don't seem to miss my children as much as I once did. It feels like they're right there with me. I live up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where winters are long and cold, and summers are way too short. But every year now, when winter sets in, I look out my window and think of the flowers I'll see next spring in my little garden. I think about what my children did for me, and I get tears in my eyes—every time. I'm still not sure that money grows on trees. But I know love does! 1. The writer stopped thinking about having a flower garden because_____. A. she was too busy B. her children were off on their own C. she was too old D. her children had finished school 2. The underlined word ―no - frills‖ in the fourth paragraphs is similar in meaning to_____. A.painful B.tight C.loose D.helpful 3. The ―IOU‖ on the note is short for ___ . A. I Love You B. I Belong to You C. I Owe You D. I Offer You 4.The underlined part "Do you see a money tree in the yard? Money doesn’t grow on trees," actually means______. A. We have many money trees B. We have enough money to buy it C. We can’t afford to buy it D. We have much money on the tree 5 Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. The writer put one hundred dollar bills on the tree to decor ate it. B. The writer was wearing her glasses when she saw the weeping willow. C. The children bought their mother a new garden and some gardening books. D. The flowers in the garden make the writer feel that her children are with her.
