He likes to help his friends.
If Peter's ball got stuck in the tree，Jeffery would get it down.
“Oh you're welcome，Peter.”
If Mary hurt herself，Jeffery would carry her home.
“Oh!My leg!”“Mary，are you OK?Here let me help you up.”“Ouch!It hurts.I can't walk.”
“I'll take you home.”“Thanks，Jeffery.”
Jeffery liked all his friends，but Jeffery was sad. It was too hard for Jeffery to play with his friends，because…
…their hide-and-seek hiding spots were too small.
…their jump ropes were too short.
…their basketball hoops were too low.
…their seesaws always went up，but they never came down.
One day Jeffery came home early.He sat down under the biggest tree he could find.He didn't want to be at the playground anymore.“I am too big to play with my friends，”said Jeffery to himself.“Hi，my name is Eddy.I'm new here.
Do you want to play with me?”Jeffery didn't look up.
He kept his head hidden in his hands.“I'm too big to play with anyone，”cried Jeffery.
“I don't think you're that big，”said Eddy.
“Really?”asked Jeffery hopefully.
“Yes，really，”said Eddy.“You're big like me.”
Jeffery took his head out of his hands.“Oh，hi，”said Jeffery shyly.“My name is Jeffery.”
Eddy smiled.“See，I am big.Why were you crying，Jeffery?”
“Oh，I was crying because I am too big to play with my friends.”
“You're not too big，”said Eddy.“Their games are just too small.Let's go to the playground together.and I'll show you how to make their games bigger.”
Jeffery and Eddy went to the playground to together，and Jeffery learned how to play bigger games.
