Emma is a little girl. She lives in Texas, USA. She has a prosthetic leg. Her parents talk to a company that makes prosthetics. Her parents want to get Emma a doll with a prosthetic leg.

They order a doll. They send it to the company. The company makes a pink leg for the doll. It writes a letter about the doll.

The company sends it to Emma’s house. She is very happy. She is so happy that she cries. She reads the letter from the company. Her parents film Emma’s reaction. Many people watch the video on Facebook.
Difficult words: prosthetic (when people make a body part), order (to ask for something from a company), reaction (how you feel or act because of something).

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