Most parents, I suppose, have had the experience of reading a bedtime story 21 their children. And they must have realized how difficult it is to write a 22 children's book. Ei- ther the author has aimed (定目标) too 23 , so that children can't follow what is in his ( or more often, her ) story, 24 the story seems to be talking to the readers.
The best children's books are 25 very difficult nor very simple, and satisfy(令人满意的) the 26 who hears the story and the adult who 27 it. Unfortunately, there are in fact few books like this, 28 the problem of finding the right bedtime story is not 29 to solve. This may be why many of the books regarded as 30 of children's literature were in fact written for 31 . "Alice in Wonderland" is perhaps the most obvious of this.
Children, left for themselves, often 32 the worst possible interest in literature. Just leave a child in a bookshop or a 33 and he will more willingly choose the books written in an unimaginative (并非想象的) way, or have a look at the most children's comics (连环图书 ), full of the stories and jokes which are the rejections of teachers and righting-thinking par- ents.
Perhaps we parents should stop 34 to brainwash ( 洗脑 ) children into accepting our taste in literature. After all, children and adults are so 35 that we parents should not expect that they will enjoy the same books. So I suppose we'll just have to compromise(妥协) over the bedtime story.
When we see well, we do not think about our eyes very often. It is only when we cannot see perfectly that we realize how important our eyes are.
People who are near-sighted can only see things that are very close to their eyes, everything else seems blurry( = unclear). Many people who do a lot of work, such as writing, reading and sewing become near ——sighted. Then they have to wear glasses in order to see distant things clearly.
People who are far-sighted suffer from just the opposite problem. They can see things that are far away, but they have difficulty in reading a book unless they hold it at arm's length. If they want to do much reading, they must get glasses, too.
Other people do not see clearly because their eyes are not exactly the right shape. They have what is called astigmatism (散光). This, too, can be corrected by glasses. Some people's eyes become cloudy because of cataracts (白内障). Long ago these- people often became blind. Now, however, it is possible to operate on the cataracts and remove them.
Having two good eyes is important for judging distances. Each eye sees things from a slightly different angle (角度). To prove this to yourself, look at an object out of one eye;then look at the same object out of your other eye. You will find the object's relation to the background and other things around it has changed. The difference between these two different eye views helps us to judge how far away an object is. People who have only one eye cannot judge distance as people with two eyes.

C.looking over a wide area
第39题单选 People who suffer from astigmatism have
A.one eye bigger than the other
B.eyes that are not exactly the right shape
C.a difficulty that can be corrected by an operation
D.an eye difficulty that cannot be corrected by glasses
Although the United States covers so much land and the land produces far more food than the present population needs, its people are by now almost entirely an urban society. Less than a tenth of the people are engaged in agriculture and forestry (林业), and most of the rest live in or around towns, small and large. Here the traditional picture is changing:every small town may still be very like other small towns, and the typical small town may represent a widely accepted view of the country, but most Americans do not live in small towns any more. Half the population now lives in some thirty metropolitan areas (large cities with their suburbs, of more than a million people each--a larger proportion than in Germany or England, let alone France). The statistics (统计)of urban and rural population should be treated with caution because so many people who live in areas classified as rural travel by car to work in a nearby town each day. As the rush to live out of town continues, rural areas within reach of towns are gradually filled with houses, so that it is hard to say at what moment a piece of country becomes a suburb. But more and more the typical American lives in a metropolitan rather than a small town environment.
第40题单选 If now America has 250 million people, how many of them are engaged in agriculture and forestry?
A.About 25 million.
B.More than 25 million.
C.Less than 25 million.
D.Less than 225 million.
第41题单选 Which of the following four countries has the smallest proportion of people living in metropolitan areas?
第42题单选 According to the passage,what can we learn about small towns in the United States?
A.Most small towns become gradually crowded.
B.Small towns are still similar to each other.
C.As the traditional picture is changing, towns are different.
D.Small towns are turning into large cities.
第43题单选 Why is it hard to say when a piece of country becomes a suburb?
A.Because they are the same.
B.Because the rush takes place too quickly.
C.Because the process is gradual.
D.Because more and more Americans live in metropolitan.
If we were asked exactly what we were doing a year ago, we should probably have to say that we could not remember. But if we had kept a book and had written in it an account of what we did each day, we should be able to give an answer to the question.
It is the same in history. Many things have been forgotten because we do not have any written account of them. Sometimes men did keep a record of the most important happenings in their country, but often it was destroyed by fire or in a war. Sometimes there was never any writ- ten record at all because the people of that time and place did not know how to Write. For ex- ample, we know a good deal about the people who lived in China 4 000 years ago, because they could write and leave written records for those who lived after them. But we know almost nothing about the people who lived even 200 years ago in central Africa, because they had not learned to write.
Sometimes, of course, even if the people cannot write, they may know something of the past. They have heard about it from older people, and often songs and dances and stories have been made about the most important happenings, and these have been sung and acted and told for many generations. For most people are proud to tell what their fathers did in the past. This we may call "remembered history". Some of it has now been written down. It is not so exact or so valuable to us as written history is, because words are much more easily changed when used again and again in speech than when copied in writing. But where there are no written records, such spoken stories are often very helpful.
第44题单选 Which of the following ideas is not suggested in the passage?
A."Remembered history", compared with written history, is less reliable.
B.Written records of the past play the most important role in our learning of the human history.
C.A written account of our daily activities helps us to be able to answer many questions.
D.Where there are no written records, there is no history.
第45题单选 We know very little about the central Africa 200 years ago because
A.there was nothing worth being written down at that time
B.the people there ignored the importance of keeping a record
C.the written records were perhaps destroyed by a fire
D.the people there did not know how to write
第46题单选 "Remembered history" refers to
A.history based on a person's imagination
B.stories of important happenings passed down from mouth to mouth
C.songs and dances about the most important events
D.both B and C
Trees are useful to man in three very important ways:they provide him wood and other products;they give him shade;and they help to prevent drought(干旱) and floods.
Unfortunately, in many parts of the world, man has not realized that the third of these serv- ices is the most important. In his eagerness to draw quick profit from the trees, he has cut them down in large numbers.
Two thousand years ago, a rich and powerful country cut down its trees to build warships, with which to gain itself an empire. It gained the empire but, without its trees, its soil became bare and poor. When the empire fell to pieces, the country found itself faced by floods and starvation.
Even where a government realizes the importance of a plentiful supply of trees, it is diffi- cult sometimes to make the people realize this. They cut down the trees but are too careless to plant and look after new trees. So, unless the government has a good system of control, or can educate the people, the forests slowly disappear.
This does not only mean that there will be fewer trees. The results are even more serious : for where there are trees, their roots break the soil up, allowing the rain to sink in, and also bind the soil. This prevents the soil from being washed away. But where there are no trees, the rainfalls on hard ground and flows away on the surface, and this causes floods and the rain car- ries away the rich topsoil in which crops grow. When all the topsoil is gone, nothing remains but worthless desert.
