By heart

Christos immediately learned the poem he was assigned by his teacher. He learned it immediately and, actually, he learned it by heart. That’s why he’s so excited. He has never read a poem out loud before, especially in front of people he doesn’t know. He recites it again and again, and he feels a little bit like an actor in the theater. So when the day of the school recital arrives, he climbs happily on stage ready to recite his poem. Will everything go well? And what is the amazing idea his beloved grandfather has?
