Chapter 9 - Nature

Bukala, 6 years old says: Today I, my brother Taban and his friend Lillibeth are going to pick grass. It may sound strange that we are going to pick grass, but we make bundles of it and bring them to school.

The grass in our area can grow to be almost two metres (7 ft) high. The roofs on our huts are made of grass. To get some extra money to our school, we pick grass in bundles and sell them at school.

Now Lillibeth is coming and we can leave. Lillibeth says that she is worried there may be dangerous animals in the bush. We have been taught there may be wild animals like lions and leopards that may hurt us.
