There are nine pumpkins in the village My friends play with me I like to play with toys, Martin Luther King saved the world. I like my friends and my aunt I like to swim in a hotel pool. I like dinosaurs because Triceratops eats plants. I like leprechauns because They have footprints Dinosaurs don't scare me. I like to eat snow. My apple tree has apples. I like the sun it is morning. I like lima beans because They grow green. I like the earth because People live in countries. I like worms because They help people. I like Peter Pan because He flies different places. I like my Mom because I made a picture for her. I like Earth because The Earth spins around the sun I like the park because It has a playground. I hate ticks because They get in my eye.
