Po's New Year
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Li Po sat down on a stool. He was tired. He was helping clean the house. His mother said they were sweeping away last year's bad luck.
 
2     Po was not too sure about that. He had looked at the dirt. It only looked like dirt. What did bad luck look like?
 
3     The boy did not sit very long. His grandmother had more work for him to help with.
 
4     When they were finally done, Grandmother put the broom and dust pan away. "We have swept away all the bad luck," she said to Po. "We do not want to sweep away good luck, too, so we put them away."
 
5     Mother was in the kitchen making supper. He liked to watch his mother prepare the meal.
