Bats are mammals. They don't lay eggs. Bats are very cool mammals. They are the only mammals that can fly. We are mammals too. That means we are warm blooded. Bats only drink cow and horses' blood. They don't drink your blood. Don't kill bats because they are nice. Bats can fly in your window and you might get scared. Just keep the window open and it will fly out of your window. In China they think bats are good luck. Bats help you because they eat bugs we don't like. Sometimes they eat the bugs we do like. Owls eat bats. Bats get scared. Bats live in trees, caves, houses. Sometimes bats scare you but they really don't mean it. A bat's wing is really it's finger. If you build a bat house bats will come and you will have lots and lots of bats in your backyard. That would be very cool. Bats are black, gray and brown. Bats will never hurt you. They don't hurt anyone in the entire world so don't kill bats.Bats hang upside down. I think it is cool to hang upside down. In the world we have over 1,000 different kinds of bats. Bats are a great part of God's world. Bats don't fly in your hair.

My Starry Bear Tale
I think an astronaut brought a big bear and little bear in a rocketship. He threw the bears in the air. That's how I think bears got into the sky.

In South America people eat llamas. Llamas were from North America long ago. There wool keeps llamas warm. Llamas make a humming sound. Llamas are mammals. They bite each other. Llamas lose baby teeth when they are two years old. Llama are good with children. Some children are scared but not as much as llamas. Sometimes people ride llamas but not all the time. Llamas spit. Their enemies are pumas.

I dream that everyone on earth would be friends and don't shoot anyone and peace on earth. I wish everyone on earth will have a home, something to eat, and a place to sleep with clean clothes. I wish that they would be nice to black people and to white people.

When I Felt Scared
Once when I was at gymnastics, on Monday, my gymnastics teacher, named Ms. Dana, told me to do a back handspring by myself. I was scared that I would get hurt by crashing on my head. But then I asked my teacher to spot me. Then she did. Then I did it with her spotting me. But I still can't do it by myself. I know some day I can do a back handspring by myself.

The Magic Shark
Once upon a time, in the ocean there was a shark. But no one knew that it was a magic shark. All of the sea creatures called the magic shark Wise Shark. Wise Shark always solved problems. He always knew what to do. He even helped sharks catch their food. Until one day, Wise Shark got so mad at a fish that he wiggled his fin and the fish was polka-dotted. The fish started to cry. Wise Shark never knew that there was a fish that had magic too! All of a sudden, the magic shark and the magic fish were face to face. Then they both tried to use their magic but they turned themselves into polka- dots! All of the sea creatures started to laugh at both of them! They tried to change themselves back again, but they couldn't! So they had to stay polka-dotted for the rest of their lives. Then they never used their magic again.
