A Boy and a Jaguar
This is a story about a little boy who stutters and has a hard time getting words out. I really loved this story because I have a hard time getting words out too. Alan is lucky because he found out that he doesn’t stutter when he talks to animals or when he sings even though he doesn’t sing very good. Alan feels really bad for the animals at the zoo because they are caged up and he wonders what they did to deserve that and he wants to help them. At school Alan’s teacher makes him go to a class for disturbed children and that makes Alan very sad. At my school sometimes I get to play games with the speech teacher. My speech teacher is really nice, she helps me, and I like her. I love this story because I stutter and I never saw a jaguar before and now I really want to see one. My favorite part is when the boy thanked the jaguar. It is good to say thank you when someone does something good for you. The jaguar helped changed the little boy’s life just as the little boy saved so many jaguars’ lives.
