Why are we alone in this world

When we were alone in the world

A little boy who just learned the clock in kindergarten, ten o'clock, one o'clock, two o'clock, and was usually picked up by his father at three o'clock, but he didn't come today. The boy decided to go home alone. When he arrived and knocked on the front door, no one was there to open it. He sat on the steps and cried, thinking where his mother, father and little brother were?

A little boy who just learned the clock in kindergarten, ten o'clock, one o'clock, two o'clock, and was usually picked up by his father at three o'clock, but he didn't come today. The boy decided to go home alone. When he arrived and knocked on the front door, no one was there to open it. He sat on the steps and cried, thinking where his mother, father and little brother were? Maybe his parents were run over by a red truck? Then it occurred to him that his brother could still be in kindergarten. It wasn't far from here so he set off. Then he discovered his little brother who was pouring sand over the head of a girl. "Come here," he called to his brother. The boy was not allowed to cry, because otherwise he would show that their parents were run over by a red truck and were dead. Now they went home and built a little house for themselves where they could live in, because they no longer had a real house and neither did they have anything to eat. Instead they went over to the neighbor and got butter, a spoonful of vanilla sugar to mix a batter, but because they didn't have an oven, they just ate the batter. The children tinkered with a television set and the older brother hopped around in the television box they had made themselves. But then he started to cry, he told his little brother what had happened. But then they heard a voice, who could that be ...?
It was very exciting what you did in the end, whether you found your parents? I would recommend the book to children who enjoy stories that are sometimes sad and funny. :-) :-) :-)
