Mi papá Juan es el rey de la casa.
Mi hermano Brandon es un buho en la noche, nunca se quiere dormir.
Mi hermano Emanuel es una abeja, le encantan los dulces.
Mi papá Juan es un gallo porque se levanta temprano.
Mi prima es una gallina, siempre se asusta y llora.
Mi tío es una hormiga, trabaja todo el tiempo.
Mi hermano es una tortuga cuando se baña.
Mi primo Orlando es un ogro cuando se enoja.

My father Juan is the king of the house.
My brother Brandon is an owl at night, he never wants to sleep.
My brother Emanuel is a bee, he loves sweets.
My father is a rooster because he always wakes up early
My cousin is a chicken, she is always afraid and cries.
My uncle is an ant, he works all the time.
My brother is a turtle when he bathes.
My cousin Orlando is an ogre when he gets mad.

By Luis Flores, 3rd grade
