It was nearly time for Zethu’s graduation. Her mother took her to town, to choose her dream dress. Zethu tried on many dresses that day.

Finally, she chose a yellow dress with a long skirt that swirled around her knees. As they were leaving the shop, Zethu saw an exquisite necklace. She wanted that necklace so much!

But her mother could not afford the necklace. “It is lovely, my angel. I wish I had money to buy it for you,” said her mother.

Zethu was disappointed. She decided to save and buy the necklace herself. She put all her money in a piggy bank under her bed.
