EL GRAN AUS-
My name is Sophia.

This is my mother and father, Maria
My dad went to get some water
from the eucalyptus tree!
My mom and I went to get
leaves from the eucalyptus.
My mom made climbing to the top of the tree and grabbing as
many leaves as she can fun, so I wanted to try!
When I started climbing, I couldnt stop; I felt like a super hero.
Suddenly, I lost grip and fell
through a few branches; I was se-
Its been days since my accident and I promised myself never to
My mom let a few of my
friends over, Anna and Enrique,
to help me feel better.
Anna tugs on my ear, a sign of caring, and says, Sophia, Im sor-
ry you fell.
Enrique was quite, he was very upset.
My dad wanted to surprise me, so he put me in his arms and
jumped a few branches up.
He said to me, Sophia, you can
do it. I believe in you!
So he dropped down to the branch lower than the one we
were on and said, Believe and it will happen!
I puffed my chest up,
closed my eyes, and
started to climb like Ive
never have before!
Suddenly I stopped and my father yelled, Open your eyes So-
phia. Youre at the top.
My heart sang, smiled, and shouted
from the top of the tree, I did it!
