Old letter in a chimney - level 2
Builders were tearing down an old chimney in a house in England when they found a letter. A little boy about 73 years ago addressed the letter to Father Christmas (Santa).
The boy wanted chalk, house shoes, and any toy that Santa had to spare. The builders were surprised to find this letter in the chimney. They also could see that children ask for a lot more these days.
The builders put a picture of the letter on Facebook. Surprisingly, the person who wrote the letter contacted them and met with them. The builders gave the old man what he wanted all those years ago.
Difficult words: tear down (to destroy), chimney (a pipe through which smoke from a fire leaves a building), spare (if you can spare something, you do not need it).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
