- Book Intro
Goeun, the first-grade student of the elementary school, wanted to pee during class time. But she held her it because she thought she would be teased by friends if she told the teacher. So she went to the restroom as soon as the class was over. But unfortunately, the cleaning lady was washing the floor. After some hesitation, Goeun thought, "It will be easier to fight off when I count numbers. I will hurry home to pee". But her hardship just began like the few raindrops falling. The steps of the overpass she usually climbed seemed to go up forever, and the people on the street walked as if they were trying to block her progress. The red light at the crosswalk didn't turn green for seemingly a hundred years. Finally, the light flashed green, and Goeun blasted across the street like a rocket. Did she finally make it? Would Goeun be able to pee like the rain that poured harder and harder and be relieved of the pain, the most intense feeling in her eight-year-old life?
We hope you will say, "It's OK" to Goeun who says, "Now it feels the pee is trickling out no matter how tightly I hold my legs". We hope the world becomes a warmer place where our children grow into adults who generously understand others.
