      Travelling is one thing; travelling with children is another. One problem with travel guide-books is they don' t speak to children, who can get bored.

      Enter HolidayKids, a new travel guide series (系列 ) that not only focuses on child-friendly places, but also is written for children. The series from Holiday Books cover Hong Kong, Beijing,Bali, Sydney, London and New York.

      Written by Gerald McCune, a Hong Kong based Children' s walter, the series taps into the knowledge of parents ( and their children) about what inca particular place plays well with children,either from repeated visits or from living there.

      The idea is to speak to children directly so they will take part more actively in planning and in later tours. One café review for example reads: "Your parents can have a cup of coffee, while you enjoy a fruit cake and something really sweet, like a chocolate ice cream. "

      But the books don' t sugarcoat everything. A passage about Bali' s Uluwatu temple ( 寺庙 )warns of "hawkers ( people who try and sell you things) pushing" and of monkeys stealing things.

      There isn' t too much of that, and the series doesn' t include anything that isn' t child-friendly.

      Their colorful pages are full of attractive pictures and photos by Sally Denney. They are well organized into playfully named sections like" Food, Delicious Food" (restaurants) and "Talking with the Animals" (zoos). Many of the restaurants reviewed show their tasty food with lively pic-tures. For example, the Natural Restaurant in Phuket serves delicious Thai dishes and is built around "trees that the owners didn' t have the heart to cut down".

      This writing-for-kids series lacks some useful information though: you won' t f'md details about hotels or prices because kids don' t book rooms or worry about money. The guides aim to help one' s travel research. Available for HK $ 90 at major bookshops.

      24. What is the purpose of the text?

      A. To compare guided tours.

      B. To discover new places of Interest.

      C. To introduce a book series.

      D. To show ways of writing for children.

      25. How many places does the travel guide series cover?

      A. Three.

      B. Four.

      C. Five.

      D. Six.

      26. What does the underlined word "sugarcoat" in paragraph 5 mean?

      A. Tell something in a child-friendly way.

      B. Make something look better than it is.

      C. Attract children' s interest in something.

      D. Give people warnings about something.

      参考译文

      旅行是一件事,带孩子旅行是另一件事。旅行指南的一大问题就是它们不是针对孩子而设计的,孩子就会感到无聊。

      去看《孩子假期手册》吧,这一新的旅行指南系列不仅主要论及适合儿童游玩的地方,而且专为儿童而写。《假期手册》这一系列涵盖了香港、北京、巴厘岛、悉尼、伦敦、纽约这些地方。

      这套书籍由香港儿童作家杰拉尔德?麦克卡尼撰写,该系列汇集了父母(和他们的孩子)的智慧,从常客或常住者了解一个特别的地方是如何吸引孩子的。

      作者的观点是,直接告诉孩子,这样他们就会更积极地参与制定计划和后面的旅行。例如对一家咖啡馆的评论是这样的:“当你吃一块水果蛋糕,或者像巧克力冰淇淋这样的甜食时,你的父母就能喝一杯咖啡。”

      但是这套书并不粉饰所有事情。一篇关于巴厘岛鸟鲁瓦图寺庙的文章就警告要小心“小贩(尝试卖给你东西的人)强卖”和猴子偷东西。

      这类东西并不太多,这套书并没有涵盖所有对儿童不好的事情。

      他们的彩页由很有吸引力的图片和照片组成,这些图片和照片都是出自莎莉?丹宁之手。他们被精心安排在不同的部分,每一部分都有有趣的名字,如“食物,美味的食物”(餐馆),“与动物对话”(动物园)。很多餐馆的评论都是用生动的图片展示可口的食物。例如,普吉岛上一家提供美味泰国菜的“自然餐馆”就是建造在那些“所有者不忍心砍下的树”四周。

      当然,这套为儿童写的书缺少了一些有用信息:你在书里找不到有关旅馆或者价格的详细信息,因为孩子们不用自己预定房间,也不担心钱的事。这套指南的目标是帮助人们研究旅行。各大书店均有销售,售价90港币。

      24.c 【精析】主旨题。题干意为“这篇文章的写作目的是什么?”通读全文可以知道,作者是向我们介绍了一套适合儿童阅读的旅行指南系列。故C正确。

      25.D 【精析】细节题。题干意为“这套旅行指南涵盖了几个地方?”从文章第二段最后一句话“The series from Holiday Books covey Hong Kong,Beijing,Bali,Sydney,London and New York.”可以推断出,共涵盖了六个地方。故D正确。

      26.B 【精析】推断题。题干意为“第五段中加下划线的单词‘sugar-coat’是什么意思?”前面第四段介绍了本书在引导孩子方面的积极作用,后面第五段接着描述书中还介绍了巴厘岛上发生的一些不好现象,由此可以推断出第五段第一句应该是一个转折句。表明书中并不完全都是介绍真善美的,也有对社会不友善现象的阐述。所以画线的单词应该是表示“并不只描述好的而刻意忽略不好的”之意。sugarcoat实际意思是“粉饰,裹以糖衣”。故B正确。
