All About My Home
I live with my parents in Lover Street. I have three sisters and two brothers. We all live together and help each other. My community is good. We love each other in our community.
My mother goes to work every day. We all go to school to learn many things and we make many friends.
In my home we have to obey older people. I like to learn about good things in school and in my home. I do my work. I love to be with other students and study with them, and we all work and clean our community together.
I learn that if you become a good child from home, you can be a good child and student too. In my home I help my sisters and brothers.

In Liberia people do not treat beaches clean. What I don’t like about my environment is that my neighbors toilet and troll dirt here and there around the beaches.
And because my parents do not have enough, we cannot afford to move to different apartment.
My father promises that when he saves enough money, he will look for another apartment that we can move to.
All About My Home

My home is a very good place to live. We are united in our home. I have two sisters and two brothers. Every day when I go home, my father asks me what I take in school, and he teaches me what I don’t understand.
