Living on a quiet farm in China, Ling is awakened each morning by the crowing of roosters. Following her morning routine of brushing her teeth, Ling helps her parents feed the chickens. She scatters grain for them and giggles as they peck around her feet. Then, she goes to the vegetable garden with Mum, and they pick fresh tomatoes and green beans for dinner later.

It’s breakfast time. Ling has a delicious breakfast of Mum’s homemade porridge. She loves eating it! Next, it’s time for school. Ling walks to school with her friends. On the way, they chat and laugh, looking at the beautiful mountains around them.

When school ends, Ling and her friends head to a nearby stream. They love to splash in the cool water. Sometimes, they race paper boats, watching them bob and weave through the gentle current. In the evening, Ling’s family gathers for dinner, enjoying a meal with rice and the vegetables they picked from their garden earlier.

After dinner, Ling does her homework. Sometimes, she asks her parents for help with a tricky question. Finally, it’s bedtime. Ling snuggles under her blanket. She thinks about the day and smiles. Life on the farm is busy, but she loves every moment.
