A Chinese man has a son. The father is very strict. He tells his son to do difficult things.

The things are not easy for the son. The son is only five years old. The father once tells his son to go outside. The son must exercise when it's -13°C (8.6°F). The son has to do other things, too.

The son flies with a plane. Nobody helps him. The son can go to 1,000 feet (305 metres). It is amazing, but it is not normal.

Difficult words: strict (has hard rules), exercise (make the body stronger), plane (flying machine).

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