max and kate

Max and Kate are playing in the snow. They build a huge snowman! “What should he wear?” wonders Kate. Max runs indoors and brings out his daddy's old hat, scarf, and coat. “Daddy's going to get a big surprise when he comes home,” says Max with a laugh. “Can you imagine meeting yourself as a snowman?” asks Kate. Max and Kate wait inside for Max's daddy. Suddenly their snowman opens the door and shouts, “Boo!” It is just Max's daddy acting silly, in the snowman's hat, scarf, and coat. What a New Year's surprise for Max and Kate!…

star party

When the sun set, Mom said, “We’re going to a party outside. It’s cold, so put on your coat, hat, and mittens.” “But there’s no snow or ice,” I said. “We can’t use a sled or skates.” Mom smiled. “It’s a star party. We’ll use a telescope to see things in the sky.” Mom drove us into the country. There weren’t many houses. There weren’t many lights. There were many, many stars in the sky. The moon was full. She parked the car near a hill. On the hill, people were lining up by a telescope. When it was my turn, a man helped me look through the telescope. The moon looked so close! I saw holes on the moon. Mom called them craters. Then Mom and I went to the back of the line. “We’ll…

the snowman’s gift

When a snowman melts, it leaves us a gift that lasts all year. To find out what this gift is, let’s take a closer look at what happens to the snowman. It has to be warm outside for a snowman to melt. As the sun shines, it makes heat. We can’t see heat, but we know it’s there because we feel the warmth on our hands and faces. The snowman gets smaller and smaller as it melts, until we can’t see it at all. Where did it go? As the snowman melts, it turns into water. If you look carefully at snow, you’ll see that it’s actually small pieces of ice (called crystals) that are stuck together. When they get warm, the crystals change from ice into water. But where does the water from…

do not drop

I found it in the basement—a book with a cover so clear you could almost see through it. These were the only words inside: Do not drop this book! What happens if you drop it? I wondered. I just had to know. So that night when I was alone in my room, I held the book high above my head and let go. It slammed on the floor. It trembled. It wriggled. And then . . . a mossy green lizard the size of a small dog squeezed out! I was about to scream for Mom and Dad when smoke started curling from her nose. She was a dragon. “Hello,” I whispered, my voice trembling. “I’m Yuka. Who are you?” The dragon just looked at me through golden eyes and wagged her glimmering tail. “You’re a…

snowflake time

No matter what the weather is like outside, you can make it snow in the new year! What You’ll Need: baking sheet or shallow pan basket coffee filter water paintbrush watercolor paints and/or food coloring scissors What to Do: 1. With a grownup, place the coffee filter on the baking sheet. Dip your paintbrush in water and use it to wet and flatten the entire filter. 2.

Now you can go to the next step, or ask your grownup to iron the filter on low heat. (Adults: place filter between paper towels to keep the iron clean.) 4. Fold the filter in half.…
