I am afraid of bees because they have a venom stitch. I have read the article that a person got stung by a bee and died. I listen to a story like it, then I have realization that bees are dreadful insect. I got the information that wasps come near to a person who puts on black clothes, at the TV. Also, they react to smell of perfume. I usually don't wear a perfume, but I often wear black clothes. Thus I must not wear black clothes, when I go on a hike to the mountain where there are bees. The character of bees is really terrible.

My favorite bakery

The bakery that I recommend is Jizoya. Jizoya is in Rokko. I eat a bread of Jizoya every morning. My house is far from Jizoya, so I get breads delivered to my house. A bread of Jizoya is soft and tasty. Jizoya took part in a fair what delicious foods of the whole country gathered. That fair was held at SOGO last month. A storekeeper was saying that breads were sold out in 10 minutes. People who ate a bread of Jizoya all will become liked it. I like a bread of Jizoya very much.

Kids Talk About: Feeling Scared

Kids Talk About: Feeling Scared
Kids Health
Everybody is afraid of something. That's what more than 1,700 kids told us when we asked them about fears and scary stuff. Some don't like the dark. Others hate nightmares and scary movies. And then there are those who want to run away from mean dogs, snakes, and creepy crawly spiders.

Being Afraid

Being Afraid
Kid's Health
Have you ever been afraid? Everyone gets scared sometimes. Do thunder and lightning make your heart beat faster? Maybe your mouth goes dry when your teacher announces a pop quiz, or your palms sweat when it's your turn to give your report in front of the class. Perhaps you get butterflies in your stomach when you see the bully who picks on you.
