Where I live no one has a lot of money. Some moms and dads have a little money but they must work all the time but then they can buy food and clothes and things. But not books and toys and other special things. There is also not money to live in a nice area and so the children can go to a nice school and learn the things that will help them. I am lucky because I can go to Little Lambs pre-school. Little Lambs is like being in heaven when you are still alive. My mom and dad are so happy that I am there. It is safe and everyone here loves the children. They give us nice healthy food and there are books and toys and equipment and I can play with my friends. They also teach us so many things like reading and writing and counting and shapes and hygiene and how to be with other children. And because at Little Lambs my tummy is always full and I am always warm and dry and I can sleep enough in the day I can listen and concentrate in class and keep up with the other children. I love the teachers at Little Lambs and they love me and always know what is the best thing for me. I also love the other things we do like the outings and dancing and music and shows and concerts and Christmas parties. And I can stay here the whole day until my mom or dad have finished work and can come take me home.
One day I will go to big school. That will be the best! I will be able to sit in the front and put up my hand and be happy in my uniform and with my books and with the other kids. And then when I finish school I will go to university. I like to think about this. I told my mom I will go to university one day and then she was crying but she said was the crying from being happy. But there is something that makes me sad and that is the other children who can’t come to Little Lambs because then maybe they can’t put up their hands in big school and then go to university. And then maybe their moms can only cry from being sad.
