A book review of the Adventures of Tom Sawyer
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a lively story full of fun.
Tom, the hero of the book, lives with his aunt Polly. He is a lively and clever boy. He doesn’t like people telling him 42 to do, so he always gets into trouble. He and his best friend, Huck Finn, run away to an island in the middle of the Mississippi River. Tom has more 43 because a bad man named Injun Joe is looking for him. Later, Tom escapes (runs away) from a cave with another friend, Becky. He also finds Injun Joe’s treasure box and takes it 44 .
My favourite part of the book is when Tom and Hunk start 45 adventures on the island in the Mississippi River. At first, they are 46 . But when they hear that everyone thinks they are dead, they feel very sorry, so they come back home. They hide and watch for a time when they see their family and neighbours 47 to their funeral in the church. Then, Tom and Huck 48 appear. Everyone is surprised to see them at first, but very pleased to find that they are alive.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a great book. It is more than an adventure story. Mark Twain wrote it in 1876. It describes people’s lives in the southern 49 of American at that time. It tells how young people grow, how people love each other and how bad people 50 for their actions. It is written in everyday English, and the dialogues sound especially real. Today, it is still read and loved 51 people all over the world, and it is thought to be one of the greatest American stories.
提示词：adventure冒险； funeral葬礼； church教堂
Once there was a man traveling in a faraway village. As he was passing the elephants, he stopped at once. He found that these huge elephants were being held by only a small rope tied to their front legs. No chains, no cages. It was clear that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their ropes but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and didn’t try to get away. “Well,” the trainer said, “when they were very young and much smaller, we used the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it was enough to hold them. As they grow up, they still believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can hold them, so they never try to break free.”
How could it be? These animals could at any time break free from their ropes. But because they were always stuck right where they were, they believed they couldn’t.
Just like the elephants, how many of us go through life believing that we cannot do something, just because we failed in it once before?
▲ . We should never give up the struggle (斗争) in life.

A. a small rope B. a big chain C. a long line D. a piece of cloth

54．The elephants never tried to break free from the ropes because ________.
A. they liked their living places B. they were too old to do it
C. they thought they could not D. they got on well with the trainer
55．In the last paragraph which of the following can be put in ▲ ?
A. Failure is part of learning
B. We should be different from others
C. Helping animals is helping ourselves
D. Traveling always makes people relaxed
56．What is the best title for this passage?

Nowadays, the food that you buy comes from many different countries. Have a look in your fridge and fruit bowl, and check the origins (来源) of the food. Perhaps there are apples from California or potatoes from Egypt. You will probably be surprised how far food travels to get to your plate. This journey, from “field to plate”, is called “food miles”. A food mile is the distance that food travels from the farmer’s field to the person who buys the food. Nowadays, food often travels thousands of miles to get to the consumer (消费者). Why is this, and what are the effects (影响) of these long distances?
Traditionally, farmers sold their food in the local market, so the food didn’t have to travel very far. The consumers also did not travel very far because they went to their local market to buy the food. Now, because of modern technology, food comes from all over the world. We do not have to wait for spring or summer to buy strawberries or tomatoes. They are available in winter if we want.
Some countries have to import (进口) most of their food. This is because they have difficult climates. The United Arab Emirates (UAE), for example, get 85% of its food from other countries.
I believe these miles are worrying for some reasons. First of all, because food travels such long distances, we need more planes, trucks and ships to move the food. This means we use more oil or petrol, so there is more pollution and more global (全球的) warming. Besides, food that travels a long way is not fresh and usually not very tasty. Tomatoes, for example, are picked early and stored for their long journeys. For this reason, they are usually tasteless when they get to the consumer. Local food has a better taste, and it also reduces (makes sth. less) the amount of global pollution. We need to buy more local food.
提示词：distance距离； climates气候； petrol汽油

58．The underlined word “available” in Paragraph 2 most probably means “________”.
A. easy to get B. not busy
C. willing to talk D. impossible to get
59．Some countries, like the United Arab Emirates, have to import most of their food because
of ________ .
A. long distances B. difficult climates
C. fresh and tasty food D. modern technology
60．The writer uses the LAST paragraph mostly to encourage readers to ________.
A. buy more local food B. increase international trade
C. travel long distances D. use imported food
61．This passage is mainly about ________.
A. how local food travels from field to plate
B. where different kinds of food come from

France is well known for its fine art, tasty food and romantic scenery. About 75 million visitors come here every year.
France is the largest country in Western Europe. It has a population of over 66 million. The country is home to many famous places of interest, like the River Seine as well as the Eiffel Tower.
Many visitors also come for the country’s art. Sculptor (雕刻家) Auguste Rodin and painter Claude Monet once created their great works here. If you visit France today, it is not a surprise to meet street artists in the city or come across a singer in the subway.
No visit to Paris is complete without a trip to Louvre, one of the largest and most famous museums in the world. Inside, there are 35,000 works of art, such as the painting Mona Lisa by Da Vinci and the statue (雕塑) David by Michelangelo. It would take nine months to enjoy all the pieces.
Besides, French food is world famous. Bread is very important in France. The best known French bread is called a baguette. They are long, delicious and taste salty. Snails (蜗牛) are also a must-have here. French people eat 40,000 tons of snails every year!
But France is not always good. Paris, the city of light, may also show its dark side to visitors. Chinese visitors feel sorry about the crowded subway in Paris.

63. There are many famous places of interest in France, please give two examples.
64. How long does it take to enjoy all the pieces in Louvre?

Depending on yourself
Growing up is not always easy. When we face difficulties, a spirit of depending on yourself is more useful than crying for help. That’s what Hong Zhanhui’s story of growing from boy to man with family hardship tells us.
Hong was born in 1982 in a poor family in Xihua County (县), Henan Province. When he was only 11, his father became badly ill and one day he came back with an unwanted baby girl. A year later, Hong’s mother left home. She no longer wanted to live such a poor life and face her sick husband. So everything hard fell onto the young boy’s shoulders: to take care of his father and the sister Chenchen, and to go on to study.
Although his life was hard, Hong didn’t go away from his father and sister. He worked in part-time jobs to feed his family. He climbed tall trees to get birds’ eggs for his sister. He walked two hours at weekends to the market to buy different things to sell around his school. A few years later, he studied at a college. To take care of Chenchen, he worked hard to rent (租) a room near his college for her, and sent her to school.
After Hong’s story went public, he became a hero in people’s eyes. But Hong refused offers from others. He said he felt encouraged by kind offers, but he could depend on his own work.
Through his hard life, he has grown up from boy to man.

Care for Our Parents
Our dear parents, you love us more than anybody else in the world. As your children, how should we care for you?
You have tried to offer the best life and education to us, so you are very tired and have too much pressure. To keep healthy, you should do more exercise. You shouldn’t stay up so that you can get enough sleep. You should also eat healthy food.
Learning to care for our parents is what we should do. First, we should respect them and communicate with them. We should also get on well with them. Then they may feel happy. Second, we should help them do housework as much as possible. Third, we should study hard.
We had better take good care of ourselves and try not to make them worry about us.
