Good morning, sleepyhead!
It’s breakfast time, and that
means chocolate con churros—a

Ghana
Wander into the kitchen
in your p.j.’s and munch on a
piece of sugar bread along with
your cup of tea. On Saturday, your
mom will cook “Tom Brown,” a
porridge made from toasted corn.
But today, breakfast is quick,
because it’s a school day.
Vietnam
Slurp, slurp! This morning, you eat pho for breakfast, a light
noodle soup. As your mom helps you get ready, she drinks
Vietnamese iced coffee made with sweet condensed milk.
Norway
There's a delicious plate of cucumber slices,
pickled herring, and brunost—a sweet brown
cheese—waiting for you on the kitchen
table. There's also plenty of
bread and jam, so make
yourself a sandwich!

France
Dip your tartine—a slice of bread
spread with butter and jam—into a big
bowl of hot chocolate, or chocolat chaud.
People in France like their breakfasts
sweet, sweet, sweet!
Egypt
Wake up to a bowl of
ful medames, a traditional
breakfast dish made from
fava beans, olive oil, lemon
juice, and garlic. You eat
yours with a fried egg
and soft pita bread. Yum!

Before school, tuck into a
steaming bowl of gallo pinto,
or black beans and rice. Your
mom slices an avocado for
you and puts a spoonful of
sour cream in the middle
of your bowl, just the way
you like it.
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
Roll out of bed and gobble up the official
state doughnut of Louisiana—the delicious
beignet. It's a fried, square-shaped pastry
topped with powdered sugar. Your daddy
likes his with cafe au lait—coffee with
milk—but your favorite drink in
the morning is orange juice, just
like many other childrren

Reading Between
the Letters
by Robert Schechter
Art by Juan Manuel Moreno
The alphabet says HI
between the G and J,
but never says GOODBYE.
I guess it plans to stay.
Just ask it, “Will you go?”
Then skip ahead and see.
The alphabet says NO
between the M and P.

Half a Donkey
A Story from Botswana
Precious was upset. She stood on the school
stage, wanting to cry.
Her class was practicing its play. And Precious
had to be a donkey! Not even a whole donkey, just
the front half. She wore a sack. She had two silly
ears sticking up on her head. In the middle of the
play, she had to say, “Hee-haw, hee-haw!” Very,
very loudly.
Worst of all, Jasper was the back half of the
donkey. He held on to Precious’s waist, and it
tickled when they walked across the stage.

Precious wanted to be a princess like Miriam.
Miriam wore a long white dress and a golden crown.
She had lovely words to say, like, “Oh, my father,
welcome home. See, I have cooked your favorite meal.”
Or else Precious wanted to be
a flower like Bessie and Kamogelo
and Lebo. They wore frilly pink
tops and sang a beautiful flower
song for the play.
We smile in the sunshine,
We laugh in the rain,
We open our petals
Again and again.
“I don’t want to be a donkey!”
Precious whispered. But no one
heard her.
ø4ø
When the rehearsal was over,
Mrs. Mogorosi, the teacher, clapped
her hands.
“Well done, everyone! That
was perfect,” said Mrs. Mogorosi.
“You must tell your family and
friends to come tonight. The play
will start at six o’clock.”
25
Precious walked home, kicking stones.
“I don’t want my family to come!” she said to
herself. “I don’t want my family to hear me say
‘hee-haw, hee-haw!’”
But at home, a surprise was waiting for her—
Grandfather! There he was in his donkey cart. He
had traveled all the way from his village on the other
side of the salt pan. It was a huge salt pan, dry and
sandy with no grass or shady trees.
“Grandfather!” Precious shouted. She ran to greet
him. She loved herr grandfather so much!
26
Grandfather climbed off his donkey cart. He
hugged Precious tightly, making her feel safe and
happy. She loved the smell of wood-fire that came
from Grandfather’s jacket.
Then he said, “Precious, please fetch water for my
donkey. She is tired and thirsty from that long, dusty
road. It was a hot, hard journey.”
And then Grandfather went to drink tea under
the big tree with Precious’s mother and her auntie.
ø4ø
Precious fetched water in a big bucket. She looked
at the donkey while it drank. How silly its long ears
looked! It smelled bad, too.
27
The donkey lifted its head.
“Hee-haw, hee-haw!” it said.
What an awful sound!
Now Precious felt even worse. Why did she
have to be a silly, smelly donkey in the play? It
wasn’t fair!
Just then, Grandfather came over with his mug
of tea. He patted the donkey. He stroked its ears.
He said, “Good girl! You can rest now.”
Precious shook her head.
“Why is Grandfather touching that smelly
animal?” she asked.
Grandfather smiled. “Precious, this donkey is
a good friend.”
A good friend? Precious frowned. Why did
Grandfather want a smelly, silly animal like that
for a friend?
Grandfather saw her frown. He said, “You see,
Precious, without my donkey, I couldn’t visit you!
And that would be awful!”
Precious opened her eyes wide. Yes, that would be
awful! She loved it when Grandfather came to visit.
“I am old now,” Grandfather continued. “I
cannot walk far. This donkey takes me where
I want to go. She pulls my cart down the longest,
28
dustiest roads. She is not smelly and silly. She is kind
and loyal and patient and hardworking.”
And Grandfather stroked the donkey’s left ear.
After a moment, Precious stroked its right ear.
“Thank you for bringing Grandfather,” she
whispered to the donkey.
“Hee-haw,” said the donkey and rubbed its cheek
against Precious’s arm.
ø4ø
At six o’clock the play started. Grandfather sat
in the front row next to Precious’s mother and her
auntie and her little brothers.
29
On stage, Bessie and Kamogelo
and Lebo sang their beautiful
flower song. Then the princess,
Miriam, said, “Oh, my father,
welcome home. See, I have
cooked your favorite meal.”
And then Precious walked
to the front, with Jasper holding
on to her waist. She was wearing
her sack. Her donkey ears stuck
up on her head. Precious stood up
straight and tall. In her loudest
voice, she said, “Hee-haw,
hee-haw!”
Her grandfather smiled
up at her.
Precious was happy to be
a donkey. Donkeys were kind
and loyal and patient and
hardworking. Grandfather
said so.
And Jasper hardly tickled
her at alll.
Bravo, Precious!

I Am Very Shy
by Fay Manus
Art by John Sandford
I am very shy—
of this, there is no doubt.
I always hide inside myself
and wish I could come out.
But up there on a stage,
I’m her royal highness
singing proud
before a crowd
minus all my shyness.
