Some children are flying kites near the river. They are very high and Peter can see them from the classroom. After lunch his aunt comes to see his mother and brings a kite to him. It looks like a bird. He wants to fly it but his mother doesn’t let him do that.
“It’s time to go to school,” says his mother, “You can fly it after dinner.”
The boy is unhappy, and says goodbye to his aunt and leaves. Now he is in the classroom but he doesn’t listen to Miss Black. He only thinks how to fly the kite. Miss Black writes something on the blackboard and then tur to the class.
“Name nine things with milk in them, Peter.” she says.
The boy doesn’t hear her and still sits there. A boy in Row 4 beats(敲打)his back and he knows it. He stands up and Miss Black asks him the question again. He thinks for some time and then says, “Yes, madam, tea, coffee, cake and …er…six cows(奶牛).”

Trees are useful to man in three important ways: they give him wood and other useful things, they give him cool places, and they help to stop drought and flood.
Unluckily, in many parts of the world, man has not found that the third of these points is the most important. Man wants to make money from trees, so he has cut them down in large numbe, only to find that without them he has lost the best friends he had. And also, he is usually too careless to plant and look after new trees. So the forests slowly disappear.
This does not only mean that man will have fewer trees. The results are even woe: for where there are trees, their roots break up soil-make the rain in-and also bind the soil, thus stopping it from being washed away easily; but where there are no trees, the rain falls on hard ground and flows away, causing floods and carrying away the rich top-soil. When all the top-soil is gone, nothing is left but useless desert.

B. there are too many rainfalls
C. strong winds bring a lot of sand
