▎This is how this story begins…

There is a special day for children in many countries. During this day, children have a day off or get presents. Nevertheless, some children think that it is quite boring to celebrate children’s day like this. Therefore, children had a congress for all children in the world and found that everybody had such a fantasy: although children like their family, but sometimes they wish they were someone else’ children when they quarrel with their families. If they can become someone else, to live in another family, that would be a great present for children!

Therefore, children reached consent in the congress that all children in the world can become a different person, to stay in another family and experience the new life. What kind of architecture will they stay in, what kind of families will they meet and what kind of life will they live? Everybody cannot stop thinking…
