Middle & High School - Reading Comprehension
2.7 My Shadow by Robert Louis Stevenson

I HAVE a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.

The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to growó
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an India-rubber ball,
And he sometimes gets so little that thereís none of him at all.

He hasnít got a notion of how children ought to play,
And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close beside me, heís a coward you can see;
Iíd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!

One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.

Q 1: What line tells us the boy doesn't understand the use of the shadow?
And he sometimes gets so little that thereís none of him at all.
He hasnít got a notion of how children ought to play.
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow.
