Lesson 28 Ms. Liu’s Great idea
One day, Ms. Liu received an e-mail from Rose, her English friend.
Rose just took a weekend trip with her husband to the countryside.
She said they had a wonderful shopping experience.
Along a small road, we saw a sign on a gate:
“Fresh Eggs for Sale”.
We parked the car and walked into the shop.
No one was around.
Then I saw another sign: “Help Yourself!”
On the table, there was a note:
“Please take eggs from the baskets and leave your money in the box.
We appreciate your honesty!”
We were surprised to find that the farmer was so trusting.
I took my eggs and put some money in the box.
On our way home,I wondered if everyone would be honest.
When Ms.Liu read this story,she smiled.
She had an idea.
She would help her students open this kind of shop at her school.
Students could take things from the shop and leave money in a box.
The shop would raise money for school activities.
It was a great idea!
Ms.Liu believed that most people want to be honest.
This shop would be a good way for students to learn the value of honesty.
The perfect motto for this shop would be,
“Take what you need.“
Give what you can.
We trust you!
