One day Tom and his family moved to Ireland. Tom was very nervous since
he didn't know anyone or anything about Ireland. He did know that
shamrocks were very rare. As Tom was driving in the car he thought about his new
school and all the new people that may be his friends. Tom finally
unloaded his luggage and he told his parents he was tired and wanted to go to
When Tom woke up the next morning he got ready for school. During
class they were learning about shamrocks and why they are so important. They
are a symbol for Ireland. Mrs. Cork said they were impossible to find.
All Tom could think about was finding a shamrock. When school was over he
ran home and told his mom and dad about what he learned in school.
next morning Tom walked to school. He had to run through fields and woods to
get to school. As Tom was walking through the fields he saw a little twig
growing out of the ground. As he got closer he could not believe his
eyes. It was a shamrock! He did not think you could ever find one. He picked
it up and started to run to school. As he got into the school the first
thing he did was to show his teacher. Mrs. Cork could not believe her eyes.
From that day on Tom was the most popular kid in the school and he was in
every newspaper in Ireland.
