Introduction

    Have you ever been to a farm?  Do you live on a farm now?

  When I was a child I was embarassed when the bus came to

 pick up my sister and I.  The reason was because we lived on

 a farm.  There was pigs across the road from our house.  I

 thought they were so yucky. Now I have found farm life is

 great and animals are fun.  You will learn interesting things

 about farm animals.
