Henry is a boy of nine. Three years ago, he began to go to school. He studies hard and does well in his lessons. His parents like him very much.
Henry's grandpa was old and weak. And he cant work. He often tells the boy all kinds of interesting stories. And he teaches the boy how to catch the singing birds and how to give them food. The boy admires（佩服） him very much and always stays with him when he's free But Henry's mother didn't like the old man. She always thought him useless and dirty and didn't let her son play with him, but the boy didn't listen to her. When they sat at table, she put little food on another table and filled a broken bowl （碗） with thin porridge instead of some dish.The old man was very sad but he dared （敢） not say anything.
Henry was angry with his mother about it One day he saw a broken bowl on his way home. He picked it up and put it into his bag. His mother found it and asked，"why have you brought a broken bowl home dear？”
I keep it for you, "said Henry. When you're old like my grandpa, I'll use it for you！”
Hearing this, the woman began to cry. Since then shes been good to the old man.
