Text from The Great Tidy Up – Inspire Children to Clean

‘We are going to have so much fun while Gogo is having a nap,’ says big sister Khwezi.
‘Ooh yes!’ says little brother Mzamo.
‘What will we do?’

‘We will clean the house for Papa and Mama while they are out.’
‘That’s no fun,’ says Mzamo.
‘Uh uh, no.
Not me.
I don’t want to clean up!’

‘But Papa and Mama will be so proud.
Let me show you how much fun we will have!’ says Khwezi.

‘First we will put the toys away!’
