Sample Text from A Very Busy Day

Today is a very busy day!

Mama and I have lots of things to do and see.

We walk to the station and nd people in a queue. Old people and young people, loud people and quiet people, all going to town.

Through the minibus window, I see cars driving by.
Fast cars and slow cars, big cars and small cars.

There are so many buildings in town! Tall ones and short ones,
glass ones and brick ones, everywhere I look.
