Many years ago there lived in Hangzhou a girl called Aqiao. One winter morning she walked into a valley. To her surprise， she found herself in a different world.
There were rows of white houses with mulbery trees in front of them. Many ladies in white were singing and picking the leaves from the trees. They fed the leaves to little silkworms. Aqiao learned how to reel silk and how to dye it.
When she returned home， she began to raise silkworms and taught her neighbours how to do it. It was said that this was how people started to raise silkworms in China.
On Lilys birthday, a lot of friends come to her house and give her surprise.
She is really happy about it. They sing songs and play a lot of games.
But only one pity for Lily, her father is on business and cant company her.
When everybody goes home, her father goes home and this is the best gift for her.
