This is a picture of a little girl listening to music with headphones. She’s about three years old. She’s got short fair hair and big blue eyes. She’s Wearing a blue cardigan and a nice pink T-shirt. She is looking through the window. The girl seems to be listening to classical music to improve her mind. Maybe her mother makes her listen to music...or maybe she just listens for fun. She might be listening to music on a plane to pass the time. Maybe it isn't even music at all. She may be learning a language....a CD course perhaps.
The picture shows a family visiting their new baby in hospital. It’s the evening, because the light is on, so the father must have brought his children after work or school. There are two children beside the baby, a boy and a girl. The boy is a little older than his sister. He’s about six or seven. He looks proud. The girl looks very excited to have a new sister. The father has his arm around his children. He looks proud as well. The mother is sitting at the left. She looks happy but a little tired. The baby is in the middle. I think it’s a girl, because she is wearing pink clothes. The baby is sleeping despite all the noise and excitement. I like the picture because it makes you feel happy.
