Today, we have a new member in our family. It has soft white fur and likes to lick its paws. It is also very curious and likes to explore its new surrounding. It seems to like milk and fish a lot and waits eagerly as we prepare its meal. Yes! It is our new cat!
Father saw it purring by the side of the road just now, and decided to bring it home. Now it has become our family cat. I love it very much and named it Ginger.
Ginger seems to like me a lot too and follows me wherever I go. I like to tickle its belly and it will always purr in satisfaction.
Father promised he will buy a cushion for Ginger to sleep on the next day. But tonight, it will share the bed with me!

Whether a tree is coniferous or deciduous, whether it bears fruit or not, whether it grows in the tropics or in the temperate zone, every tree has three parts: the roots, the trunk, and the crown. The roots, the part of the tree underground, hold the tree firmly against windstorms and provide the tree with food gathered from the soil. The trunk, which is the most important woody part of the tree, is the body of the tree it carries the food from the roots to the branches. The crown of the tree consists of the branches, the leaves, and the fruit of the tree. The leaves use the food sent from the trunk for many purposes, one of which is a process that is particularly useful to humans.
