Isn’t every day the Children’s Day for children in cities? They get their meals cooked, clothes washed, sheets changed, and toys, lots of toys but they never seem satisfied. In rural areas in China, the children whose parents have migrated to cities to make a living have fewer toys, but they have more joy.
