It was Monday morning, I was really excited. Today our class was going to the zoo. 

I said goodbye to mum rushing out the door wearing my lucky pink dress.

All the kids  went to the bus – they called it  the dust bus because it was so dusty that you couldn’t see out the windows.  When it started it made a painful  sound. 

The owner sang out to us and split us into groups. I was in the giraffe group.

Our guide explained that giraffes hum to each other at night.  

Time to go home, and tell our parents everything.
