story. That means it was written to entertain people. Can you think of a story

that made you laugh? That story was written to entertain you. Sometimes an author wants

to inform you about something. To inform you means to tell you

information The author might teach you a lesson or tell you how to make something. That means the author is

informing you. Sometimes an author wants to persuade you. That means the author is trying to convince you to

feel the same way as the author. TEACHERS written by Agatha Lee Teachers are the best people in the world. They help

everyone learn. You wouldnt be able to read without the help of a teacher. Everyone should grow up and become a teacher. Teachers are AWESOME. Why did Agatha write that story about
