第三部分:阅读理解(共20小题; 每小题2分, 满分40分)
12-year-old John Thomas Robertson is a born train fan. "I’ve liked trains probably from the day I was born," he told Good Morning America. "When I was very little," he said, "my grandpa got me a train model. I would just watch it go round for hours and hours."
When Robertson finally had the opportunity to ride on a train, he felt great. His journey was so mind-blowing that he couldn’t keep it to himself: he decided to take all his classmates to go on a ride with him. When he found that some of his classmates couldn’t pay the fare, he collected cans (罐子) and bottles and raised more than $1,000 for them.
That trip was such a happy one that he made it a yearly action. "It never gets boring for some reason; it’s just fun," he said. "It really lets people get away from their busy life and have fun."
Every October, Robertson takes a new group of children to ride on the train —but now, he has a problem. Several disabled children were refused because the train was not accessible (可用的) to disabled people. "He was angry to think that children of his own age couldn’t ride a train," his mother said.
But he wouldn’t say no: he recently sent a letter to the train office for help. To his surprise, the leader, Ty Pennington, accepted the letter in person. He said that he and his workers would work on making a train accessible to disabled people.

Growing your own fruit and vegetables is one of the best things in the world. It is very good for your health and also brings happiness to you. To be a successful fruit-and-vegetable grower, check out these tips:
●A family affair(事件)
Get all family members to take part in growing. Children will learn where food comes from, and they may like to have their own little field.
●Size doesn’t matter
You can work in any place you like, not just in a common vegetable garden. Grow fruit and vegetables in a window box, or use your flowerbed (花圃) to grow vegetables and beautiful flowers together.
●The natural way
If you want to grow foods organically, you can’t use sprays (喷剂) that would harm children, pets and wildlife. You should work with nature rather than against it.
Growing your own food doesn’t take up too much time and costs little. A few seeds and some basic tools will be OK. Second-hand tools can often be both cheap and good to use.

There are always times when your children get bored with studying. There are also moments when you are looking for something educational (教育的) yet funny and easy to do. With a few things and a little preparation, you can easily entertain (娱乐) and educate your children.
Do you read any magazines with pictures? Keep them. They can make a funny family game.
Sit with your children and look at the pictures. You can cut out interesting pictures and ask your children to lay (放置) them out. Use as many pictures as possible. For example, if it is a picture of a book, cut it out; even if it is an action, such as washing clothes, cut it out. Try to get as many different pictures as possible.
In this game, you are going to use the pictures to let your children make up their own stories. Then take any kind of table, even the kitchen table, and let your child lay out the pictures any way they wish. They don’t need to use all of them, just as many as they want.
After they have laid out the pictures, have them tell a story. If some pictures don’t fit in with their stories, don’t use them. If they find a different picture to add another part to their story, let them do it. The more pictures you have, the more creativity (创造力) will come from your children.
66. What’s the passage mainly about?

Horseback riding has been popular for centuries for many reasons. Very early in history, horseback riding became a primary means of travel. In the very beginning, horses were used for fighting and hunting. Today, horseback riding is mostly used for fun and therapy (治疗). When choosing a horseback riding camp, you must first decide which style of riding you want to learn. American riding is generally related to cowboys (牛仔) and all kinds of competitions. American saddles(马鞍)were made to make sure that the rider feels comfortable and safe.
English riding, on the other hand, focuses on jumping, racing and horsemanship (马术). This style of riding gives the horse and the rider more freedom of movement, so the saddles don’t provide as much support and security as an American-style saddle does. If you are a new rider, you should think about going to an American riding camp.
Horseback riding is a great therapy for people of all ages with physical or mind disabilities. This type of therapy provides a fun environment in which people can practice new and old skills. The riders try to improve their skills. In addition, they can enjoy the feeling of being with other people in the camp.
If you’re looking for something a little different next summer, think of horseback riding camps, whether you own a horse or not. The experience and fun of horseback riding will stay in your memory forever.

Train travel in the USA has been popular for a long time, of course. But in 1967 there was no such a thing as the company that people call Amtrak today. I remember the day I came to America. The last part of my journey was a train trip from San Francisco to Chicago after an 18-day journey from Manila by ship.
My wife, Francisca, bought first class tickets for what I simply remember as a Santa Fe train. She and our ten-month son, Reggie, both arrived in the United States a few months earlier. Now they had flown from Chicago to meet me.
Since we would leave the next day we spent the night in a little hotel. That’s where I had ____________ —a cold hamburger from a vending machine(自动贩卖机). No, I don’t think I should say that. My first American dinner was on the ship. An American ship, in my mind, is already part of America, even though San Francisco is on the other side of the world.
Our train was supposed to leave at 10:30 a.m., so we felt we had the time to visit an old friend. She had been living in San Francisco for many years. She gave us food that she had made by herself when she learned that it would take us one and a half days to get to Chicago. She warned us that we might get tired of train food, although she was not sure what train food would be like.

W: Of course.
M: Thank you very much, Miss.
W: You’re welcome.
Loud cheers greeted President Barack Obama on Tuesday night as he began his first address to Congress. His audience included lawmakers, important officials, and about 7 million American audiences on television. After a 5-minute introduction, the main part of Obama’s speech lasted another 52 minutes. He spoke about the state of the nation’s economy, and the importance of quick action to get the country back on track. Among the guests was Ty’Sheoma Bethea, a middle-school student from Dillon, South Carolina. She sat next to First Lady Michelle Obama during the speech. The girl had written a letter to the president about her school, asking for help for it, and for students trying to become lawyers or doctors, or dreaming of becoming president themselves. The president thought the girl was very brave and clever, and invited her to attend the speech and give him suggestions, as well as speak to other youth.
