This story is so sad. when I was ready the mother’s letter I felt angry, sad, and sorry for Jack’s mom. I wish he didn’t give the mom such a hard time. I can’t imagine being this mean to my mother. I feel like I’m connected to this story because my mom doesn’t speak English and she is learning just like Jack’s mother was trying to learn English. But I’m not like Jack I help love helping my mom and can’t wait for her to speak English with me.
