AMY was looking for a gift for her little daughter. Suddenly she
stopped before a store of dolls(玩具娃娃). ―Girls like dolls,‖ she
thought as she stepped into it.
Looking around, she saw a grandma doll---one with gray hair and a
pair of glasses. In her mind appeared Joyce, her mother.
When Amy was a little girl, she got her first doll from Joyce for her
birthday. Then the second, the third… A doll a year never arrived late.
―Why always a doll?‖ This question had been in Amy’s mind until one day her father gave the answer.
Little Joyce dreamed to have a doll. Her parents promised one for her fifth birthday. Sadly, they both died in a traffic accident before it arrived. The never-received gift was the most precious (珍贵的) in her eyes.
Her mother’s story being recalled, Amy got an idea.
It was Joyce’s birthday. A package was delivered to her with a card that read:
I forget to send you the package that you should have received on May 20, 1956, your fifth Birthday. The gift inside has aged, but I felt that you might still wish to have it.
Love, Angel(天使) of Joy Joyce opened the package and saw a lovely grandma doll. She the doll that she had waited so many years for, crying softly. The doll given by ―Angel of Joy‖, made her the happiest ―child‖ in the world.

Doctors working with children with autism (孤独症) have found that it would be helpful to use colours, especially red.
The use of colour can be especially helpful when children get angry or emotional reaction (情绪反映) to loud noises, like a dog barking. If they are not angry, just emotional, the colour red seems to help. However, if they are angry, orange or yellow seems to work better.
Children’s doctors sometimes use colour therapy(疗法)glasses to help those children. Wearing a pair of red, orange or yellow glasses may quickly make a child calm down and happier. Coloured glasses are not expensive and simple to use. And children love wearing them.
Colour therapy glasses are also a good way to improve your life. Do you need to change negative (负面的) thoughts? Wear red glasses. Do you need to cheer up? Wear yellow. Do you need to become calm? Wear blue. Green is good for an overall feeling of happiness.
We naturally associate（使发生联系）colours with moods or feelings. We say ―I’m green with envy‖, ―I see red‖, ―I’m feeling blue‖ or ―I’m in a black mood‖. It is easy for us to become out of balance. With colour therapy, each colour is associated with a special mood or feeling. A proper colour may allow our moods or feelings to return to a balanced state and we’ll feel better.
( ) 62. According to the passage, ________ is helpful to children with autism.

( ) 63. If someone wants to be more cheerful, he or she should wear ________ glasses.

B. When a child is emotional, the colour red seems helpful.
C. With colour therapy, all colors have similar moods or feelings.
D. A proper colour can help an unbalanced person feel better.

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．Everything hard fell onto the young boy’s shoulders. He managed to take care of his father and the sister Chenchen and go on to study as well．
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 send 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．
during your childhood, how would you turn out as an adult? For Novak Djokovic, he became a great tennis player.
Djokovic, 27, has been ranked(评级)number one in the world by the Association of Tennis Professionals since 4 July 2011. He has so far seven Grand
Slam singles titles. The 27-year-old Serbian(塞尔维亚人) was born in Belgrade. His
