A girl gets a doll just like her – level 2

A girl gets a doll just like her – level 2

10-06-2016 15:00

In Texas, USA, a girl named Emma has a prosthetic leg. Her parents wanted to do something special for her, so they contacted a company that makes prosthetics.

They sent the company a doll so the company could create a prosthetic leg for it. The company created a pink leg for the doll, since pink is Emma’s favourite colour, and then sent it to Emma.

When Emma received the doll, her parents filmed how she responded. She was so happy that she cried. She also read a letter from the company about her doll’s story and about its leg.

Difficult words: prosthetic (a body part made by people), contact (to write or to talk to someone or something), receive (to get).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
