Mrs. Weeks was reading a newspaper story to her class. 威克斯老师正在读报纸上的一个故事给她班上的学生听。 The story said: "Were you ever in a hospital when you were small? How did you feel?" The doctors in Children's Hospital are asking for money for children's toys. Some children in the hospital must stay in bed for many weeks. Toys are needed to keep the sick children happy and quiet. Money for them can be sent to the hospital. After Mrs. Weeks read the story，she said，"This story gave me an idea." "You want us to bring some money for the toys." "We could bring some of our own toys for the children in the hospital, "said the boys and the girls one after another. "Well, your ideas would be nice, "Mrs. Weeks said， "but mine is different." "We could make some toys, "shouted one of them. Mrs. Weeks smiled. "Do you think you could make toys?" she asked. "Yes, yes, "the whole class answered. "Great! Let's begin to make toys tomorrow, "said Mrs. Weeks. On Saturday afternoon，Mrs. Weeks took the children to the hospital with the toys made by her students. The children in the hospital felt very happy to see the toys. So did the children in the class. A few days later，Mrs. Weeks read another newspaper story to the class: Some school pupils brought toys to Children's Hospital last week. The toys were made by the pupils of Grade Three in Green Street School. The doctors said，"We have never had so many wonderful toys. Our children are very happy with them. They say，'THANK YOU，GRADE THREE.'" The first newspaper story was mainly about sick children in children's Hospital.
Let the class make some toys and give them to the children in the hospital was in Mrs. Weeks' mind.
At first，the doctors in Children's Hospital wanted to get some money to buy toys for the sick children.
From the passage we can learn that what Mrs. Weeks really wanted to do is to ask her class to save money for toys.
The author's tone in this passage is enthusiastic.
