Do you know why you shouldn’t eat junk food?
¿Sabes porque no comer tanto dulces?
Too much candy will give you a stomachache,
Like a tornado destroying your house.
Muchos dulces te puede dolor de estomogo,
Como un tornado destroiendo tu casa.
It will rob your energy right from your body.
Te ya robar tu energia de tu cuerpo.
Your teeth will fall out one by one.
Todos tus dientes se caeran uno por uno.
Here comes the junk food now.
Aqui viene los dulces malos ahora.

My friends are funny as a monkey.
My friends are like my sisters.
My friends are beautiful.
My friends are sweet as a flower.
My friends are like a butterfly.
My friends are close as family.
– Monserrat B., Grade 5
