ack wanted a bike. He asked his parents for money but they told him that he must earn it. But how could he?He thought about this all day. Not many people wanted him to work for them. Maybe he could sweep snow for the neighbours,but it was summer. He wasn’t able to cut grass for their gardens because he had no tool to do the work.
On the way home Jack saw one of his classmates,Jim,delivering newspapers.“I could do that,”he thought.“Maybe I can get a bike right away. I can pay for it a little each week.”He ran to catch up with Jim. Jack asked a lot of questions about having a paper route. He learned that it was going to earn  25 
dollars a week. He learned that job took about three hours each night. Jim gave him the phone number of the newspaper manager.
Jack almost flew home. After he told his plan to his mother,she smiled,“I think it’s a good idea,”she said,“I’ll call the manager…”
“Well,Mum,”said Jack.“Let me call. Because I’m going to be a businessman now.”
Jack’s mother smiled happily.
