BR-09 Romeo and Juliet


" Dead? Romeo and Juliet." (P.37)

     Today, I am going to talk you about a book. The title is "Romeo and Juliet"
I think this is very famous love story in the world. I will tell you this story.
     What's in a name? Does it really matter if you are called Montague or Capulet?
When Romeo, son of Lord and Lady Montague, falls in love with the most beautiful girl he's ever seen., he finds out that it does matter. It makes all the difference in the world, because both families hate each other bitterly. For a time, Romeo and Juliet manage to keep their love secret. But when Romeo is sent away from Verona, and arrangements are made for Juliet to marry Paris, a friend of her father's, hope begins to die.
      This story is sad story, but we can understand about true love. I was impressed by their love.  This book is one of my favorite book that I want to recommend.

BR-07 Diana princess of wales

 

" Diana Princess of Wales died in a car accident in Paris on 31 August 1997." (P.1)


     Hello! Today I'm going to introduce you this book. The title is " Diana princess of Wales".
Do you know princess Diana? She is a famous person in the world. This is her biography.I will tell you about this story.
     It is not always easy to be famous. And for a famous, beautiful princess like Diana, life was certainly very difficult at times. She was just twenty years old when she married Prince Charles, and from that moment millions of people around the world watched every move she made. And so did the photographers, who followed her everywhere - even on that terrible night in Paris when Diana's young life ended.
     I knew her at first time by TV when I was nine years old, but I read her biography first time. I love her and her way of life. This book aren't used difficult words, so I think you can read this easily. I want you to read this book!!!

BR-06 Born to Dance


"He danced with energy and power, but he was graceful and elegant too. This boy was different!!" (P.12)

    Today, I am going to introduce "Born to Dance".
This story is a true story. I will tell you about the story.
     Rudolf Nureyev grew up in Russia When times were hard. But he knew one thing: he always wanted to dance. he became a wonderful ballet dancer. He wanted the whole world to see him dance. His name means "a beam of light" and his dazzling story is filled with adventure. This is how it happened.... This is the story of how he followed his dream to become one of the best ballet dancers in the world.
     I wanted to read this book when I looked it in the library. This is because I have learned ballet since I was five years old. I sympathized with his feeling. He overcame some troubles. I think that his way of life tell us that never give up. I recommended this book, so please read it!!

BR-05 The wizard of oz


"From the country of Oz, but I'm home again now - and I'm so happy!!" (P.41)

     Today I am going to introduce " The wizard of Oz". I think this story is famous in Japan. Now, I will tell you about the story.
     In Kansas, USA, there are no witches. But there are cyclones, an one day a cyclone blows Dorothy's house, with Dorothy and her dog Toto in it, to a country called Oz. And in Oz there are four witches, and a very famous wizard - the wizard of Oz. Dorothy wants to go home to Kansas, but she doesn't know how to get there. She needs help. "Go to the Emerald City," the Witch of the North tells her, " and ask the Wizard of Oz to help you." Then Dorothy meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, but they need help too. So they all take the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. But what are they going to find there? Who - or what - is the famous Wizard of Oz?
     I read this story many times when I was a child. But I found some different point in English story and Japanese story. I don't tell that because I want you to find that by reading this book. This book was used easy English words, so I didn't take much time. If you have time, please read this book!

BR2-04 Mary Queen of Scots








" Dear James. Very soon I am going to die, and meet my God." (p.4)
     

     Hello! I'm going to tell you about "Mary queen of Scots". First, I will say this story of this book.
     Scotland in 1561 was a wild country. When the young queen of Scots returned from France, at first her people were pleased to see to her. Her husband, the King of France, was dead, and now she wanted a new husband. But Mary, Queen of Scots, was a Catholic Queen, and most of Scotland was now Protestant. There was also a Protestant Queen in England. And in those tomes, men were happy to fight and die for their church.It is 1587, and Mary sits, a tired unhappy woman, in Fotheringhay Castle in England. She is a prisoner of Queen Elizabeth, and soon she will be dead. She takes a pen and begins to write a letter to her son, James now King of Scotland. It is the story of her life...
     This story is written by a letter which Mary wrote for her son, James and a diary which his nurse wrote. We can understand the historical situation in Europe by reading this book. And I was moved at her power as a woman.

BR2-03 A little princess


" It's not so bad," said Sara. "And I've got lots of friends" (P.20)

    Today I will tell you about "A little princess"
First, I write this story.
     Ralph Crewe lives in India, with his little daughter Sara. He is a rich man, and when he brings Sara to Miss Minchin's school in London, Miss Minchin smiles, but she says to her sister:' Sara looks like a little princess, not a schoolgirl!" Mr Crewe goes back to his work in India, and Sara begins her new life at school. She is a kind, friendly girl. Everybody likes her, and she soon makes friends. But when you are rich, everybody is your friend. On Sara's eleventh birthday, there is some terrible news from India. Poor Sara is very unhappy, and she quickly learn who her true friends are......
     I turned out that this story is very famous because this story is called "小公女” in Japan. This story teach readers that what is true friend. and As for the person, an appearance is not all. I was moved after I have finished reading this book.
