When would the baker come every day? Why did the children run to meet him?
When the author was a young child, the baker would come twice a day, once when he set out in the morning and the second time when he returned after emptying his basket. When the baker arrived at their houses, they ran to meet him as they loved bread bangles. They gathered around him and when they were asked to get aside with a mild rebuke, they used to peep into the basket and climb on the railings and benches.
