My name is Lizzy. I have got so many friends! They are my parents, my teacher, my classmates, my pets and the whole-wide-world around me. I learnt a lot from each of them.
My mum and dad are very kind and loving parents, so I learnt to love my family from them. My teachers know a lot about English, Maths and what not, so I learnt to study from them. My classmates are jolly and creative, so I learnt to play different games from them.
My pets are my great friends, too. I have got a cat, a dog and a pony. When I was a baby, I learnt to walk from my friend – the cat, and I learnt to jump from my friend – the dog. I also learnt to run from my friend – the pony.
The whole world is around me. I learnt to smell the flowers from my friend, the butterfly. I learnt to explore the earth from my friend, the ant. I leant to sing from my friends, the birds.
Lucky me! Lucky you?
