Reading comprehension: Clever Hands

John Bell is an English pupil. He goes to school. One day the teacher asks which of the pupils wants to make a pointer at home. Many hands go up. John Bell’s hand goes up, too. He does it not because he makes things or likes to make them. He wants to show that he is one of the best pupils in his class.

“You make the pointer,” the teacher says to John.

At home, John tries and tries, but it is all wrong. His father looks at his work and says:

“You don’t know how to do it. Look how I do it!”

In fifteen minutes, Mr. Bell gives John a good pointer. John takes the pointer to school and gives it to the teacher.

“It’s a good pointer, children,” says the teacher. “John Bell is a good boy. He has clever hands!”

One day the class needs a bіrdhouse. The children remember John and his clever hands.

“Yes, John,” the teacher says, “Your pointer is very good. Now make a bіrdhouse. You do things very well.”

However, John can’t make the bird-house, and he asks his father to make it for him. John’s father makes a very good bіrdhouse, and the teacher again says that John Bell has clever hands.

The class asks John to make things again and again. And every time Mr. Bell “helps” his boy.

One day Mr. Bell comes to a meeting in John’s class.

“John Bell makes many things for the class. He has clever hands,” says the teacher.

Mr. Bell is very sad. He does not know what to say. “That isn’t the way to help my boy,” he thinks.
