3.  I'm Alice. My house is across from a park. Many children enjoy playing in it and I like to play with them there. But there is a boy, Jim. Some people say Jim always takes away things from other children. I think he's bad so I never play with him.
  One day, I was riding my bike in the park. And Jim was playing basketball there. Jim saw me and ran to me. I was afraid because I thought he wanted to take away my bike. "Hello, I'm Jim. Nice to meet you," Jim said. I was surprised at his greeting . I didn't know what to say and left.
  When I came home, I told everything to my father. "Jim always takes away other children's things? You just hear it, but are you sure it is true? He is nice to you and it's not friendly of you to say nothing to him after his greeting," Dad says. "Remember, never judge people before you truly know them."
4.  There are about 32 million deaf children around the world. Many of them have difficulty learning to read because there is no good way to turn written text into sign language.
  Recently, Huawei, one of China's most famous companies, has invented an app called StorySign. The app gives the deaf children a great tool to read stories.
  There are some of Huawei's newest AI technologies in the app which can help deaf children read by turning written text into sign language. The main character called Star in the app makes it easier to use the app. The developers want to make Star so popular among deaf children that it also wears a hearing aid (助听器).
  "We created the app to help deaf children enjoy an exciting story time," said Andrew Garrihy, Huawei's CMO for Western Europe. "We hope that by reminding people to understand deaf children better, we'll encourage them to support one of the charity (慈善机构) partners we are working with Europe."
