Moral Story

This story is about what is useful is the thing you need right not the thing you want. Maybe sometimes the thing you want is useful but not everytime.


I think this story is suitable for every junior high school students. But the Charlieā€™s progress report is so confusing and thatā€™s just making everyone so hard to read at first.

And i love everything about this short movie because this short movie is very touching and this short movie is making me feel sad when Charlie needs to go.
