Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Yesterday a very special event happened because my sister Sarai was born. My mother gave birth calmly because Sarai had no problems and the doctors were very effective. After the birth, when I entered the room and I saw my sister, I felt very emotional and I cried for a few minutes. It's so nice to see a newly-born baby! I promise to take good care of Sarai.

Clever stuff underway!
