Skipping the Rope!

A funny story that entertains parents and little kids together.

On a normal day, little pig was skipping the rope. How happy he seemed to be!
Soon, other kids gathered around and they skipped the rope together.  Then the adults wanted to join them too, because they wanted to have fun with children.
But what will happen if all the adults stop doing their job?
Can all the people have fun together like this forever?

This is a simple but absurd story. A group of people forget everything in their daily life and all they want to do is skipping the rope, without any reason. In fact this is what children’s world is like. Between the lines and illustrations, we can see beauty and touching emotion. Also, we can tell our kids that in adults life, there are lots of responsibility, so we can have fun with them for a while, but they will have to learn to be independent.
