This is my Mummy. She's a nurse. She loves to cuddle me.

This is my Daddy. He's a carpenter. He always smells like wood.

This is my sister's room. My sister has a lot of books. She's learning to be a teacher.

This is my sister. Her arms look funny.

My sister is really strong.

My sister takes me to the park We go running together. I always win.

When I'm scared at night, my sister looks after me. Sometimes she reads for me in the dark. I tell all my friends about it.

Every month we all go to the special building in the middle of town. Mummy and Daddy take me to a special school where I learn about growing up. My sister goes with a man called a channel. He has funny arms too.

My teacher is called Sosu. She's very kind, and she usually has a special game for us to play. Today we're playing blindman's tag.

We stop on the way home and have a special treat. Mum and Dad and I eat strawberries. My sister drinks trin tea. I think trin tea smells awful.

My sister tucks me into bed. I love my sister.
