Todos los días, después de la escuela, los niños corrieron al parque. En el parque fue un jardín. Fue un gran jardín con pasto alto. Aquí y allí estuvieron hermosas flores como estrellas. Fueron doce árboles de melocotones en el medio del jardín y, en el otoño, los árboles cultivaron rica fruta. Los pájaros se sentaron en los árboles y cantaron felices canciones. Los niños acabaron sus juegos para los escuchar el cantar. También miraron las ardillas.

Los niños jugaron juegos toda la tarde en el parque. Cuando el sol fue abajo ellos fueron a casa a cenar. Ellos entonces hicieron su tarea, miraron la televisión, dijeron sus oraciones y luego fueron a la cama. Esta es la vida que un niño vive por muchos años. Es la vida que hace que los adultos sonrían.
