It was a cold morning when Grandpa, who picked wastes for a living, came across the most precious thing in his life—a baby. For an old childless couple, the baby is a gift from the gods. Though they were poor, they cared so selflessly about this little boy, who they later named Chouchou. When Grandpa and Grandma died, Aunt Kuihua, Mr. Cheng—headmaster of Chouchou's school, and especially his homeroom teacher, Miss Zuo, took good care of him. His friends—timid Chen Ying, Jiang Daya, whose family suffered from misfortune, thoughtless Lin Sheng—with him. "Even if he was born in dirt, he lives in the sunshine bravely."
