Every parent wants the best for their children. Your children are our future. Most children are participating in English lessons at school. Do you find that the lessons support conversation? Often, children are taught to read and write in English. That's wonderful for writing assignments, entrance exams, high schools and universities. Is your child's speech equally developed?

This story is written by a 10 year old student from China. Now we know the story of the Tooth Fairy 😃
The Tooth Fairy
Written and published by Zian, assisted by Stephen
Once upon a time, there was a boy named Jack. He had five brothers and three sisters. Jack was the youngest of them all.. Jack was only eight years old. His family was from the Southeastern region of The United States. Jack liked to eat sugar, but they were a poor family. Jack had no money to buy any sugary treats.
One night when jack was lying on his bed, thinking about delicious sugary treats, a fairy flew into his bedroom. The fairy placed a bottle on Jack’s work desk and quickly vanished into the night air.
Jack rose up out of his bed to investigate the bottle. He found a note attached to the bottle.
The note said; “In the bottle is something sweet. Use the bottle to make your treats. Eat too much and you’ll be sick. Moderation will do the trick.”
Jack was very happy with his bottle and thought, “I can eat all the sugar that I want.” And he did.
He ate and he ate his sugary treats until his teeth felt hurt and bad. And not very sweet.
That night, the fairy flew back into Jack’s bedroom. She reminded him about her note; “eat too much and you’ll be sick. Moderation will do the trick.” She uses her magic and waves her wand. Her magic makes Jack’s teeth feel as good as before. As quickly as she had arrived, the fairy had once again vanished into the night air. Jack thought, “the fairy used magic to fix my teeth and make me feel better. I feel much better but I know that many other children eat too much sugar and have no fairy to fix it.” Then he thought, “when I grow up, if I become a Dentist then I can fix the kid’s teeth and teach them to eat less sugar, like the fairy did for me.”
Jack grew up and worked very hard. Upon completion of university Jack was accepted to a famous dental school. After 4 years of hard work, Jack graduates from dental school and becomes a Dentist.
Once he received his dental license, he opened a dental practice to work exclusively with children. He began his life as a dentist to the children.
With each new patient, Jack tells the story of the fairy and the sugar, in hopes that they will learn from his mistakes and eat less sugar. The kids liked the story very much and began to call the fairy “The Tooth Fairy”.
The fairy was so happy and honored to be thought of as The Tooth Fairy. To let the children continue to believe, she wanted to give a sugarless treat to the kids when they lost a tooth. But, how could she do this?
Quite quickly, the fairy realized that Jack was the best person to help her. He would know what to do. So, the fairy went to see Jack. She explained her wish and asked him for advice on how to go about giving sugarless treats to the children.
Asking Jack, indeed, was very smart because Jack suggested that she deliver the treat to the children directly. The fairy asked, “how will I know that the child lost a tooth?” Jack responded, “I will tell them to put the tooth under their pillows. I have one other suggestion”. “Anything Jack”, replied the fairy, “your suggestions have been so helpful”. Jack says, “I’m not sure a sugarless treat is the right thing. Treats can melt and that angers mothers. Perhaps a coin would be better. They can buy a treat the next day.” “That’s a wonderful idea”, said the fairy. An idea that remains in practice to this day. Children all over the world, enjoy coins of all kinds and shapes, from The Tooth fairy.
And they all lived happily ever after.
