EXCERPTS

Icy The Iceberg

Once upon a time in Vancouver, Canada, the sun began heating the waters. The water started to evaporate. The water turned into vapor. This vapor formed molecules. Into the air the molecules rose. Higher and higher they went. They became colder and colder.

At first the particles turned into water, then the water became snow and Icy was born!

Squirrelly The Squirrel and Starlett

On a cool spring day a baby boy squirrel was born in the top of a very tall oak tree. After this squirrel entered the world, he was joined by three sisters and one brother.

Because they had little hair, the babies huddled together to preserve their body heat. They were so cute, but oh so helpless. The mother and father had to do everything for them. The mother nursed them to supply them with nourishment. Both the mother and father had to take turns leaving the nest to eat.
