a favorite story

Wasn’t it incredible—the moment you first met your child? Do you remember the intense feelings you had? I recall relief when my daughter was born, but also surprise that she had hair (no one in my family is born with hair). And I remember the nurses commenting on how alert she was. What an unforgettable night! This month, in “My Favorite Bedtime Story” (pages 26–29), a little girl and her mom take turns telling the story of the night the girl was born. From Papa running out in slippers, to snow swirling at the window, all the little details are important. (To help readers understand the story’s passage of time, “then” illustrations are in shades of blue, and “now” are in full color.) There are many ways children enter our lives—through birth,…

sidewalk artists

“What’s in that bucket?” asked Indi.“Sidewalk chalk,” said Tex.“Ooh!” said Indi. “Let’s go draw!”“I see rain clouds,” said Dad. “You might want to start before the sidewalk gets wet.” The twins drew and drew. “I’m making a magical flower,” said Tex. “I’m drawing a giraffe with a super-long neck so it can smell your flower,” said Indi. “What bright colors!” said Mom. “But it’s time for lunch, so let’s take a break and come back later.” “Mmm,” said Indi. “This soup is yummy.” As they ate, the sky turned dark, and rain started pouring down. “Oh, no,” said Tex. “Our drawings are going to wash away.” The twins ran outside after lunch. “Aww,” said Tex. “My flower is gone.” “So is my giraffe,” said Indi. “But look, there’s a rainbow!” “Hmm,” said Tex. “Maybe we can turn our drawings into a…

nature pattern

Nature loves to do the same thing over and over again. Look at a tree. Branches grow more branches. Mathematicians call this a fractal. Look closely at a snowflake, a fern, or a pinecone. You’ll see the same shape repeated in smaller and smaller sizes. You can eat a fractal! The vegetable Romanesco has tiny spirals of triangles on top of spirals of triangles. Broccoli and cauliflower are fractals too!…

It was a hot day in Miami, so Doña Rosa decided to go to her favorite shop. “Quiero helado de fresa, por favor,” she said. “Strawberry ice cream?” said the server. “You got it!” Quiero helado de fresa, por favor. key-YEHR-oh ell-LAH-doh de FREH-sah POHR fah-VOHR I want strawberry ice cream, please.

The server added a third scoop to the bowl. “Is this good?” he asked. “¡Sí, gracias!” said Doña Rosa, and she went off to the lake. Un poco más, por favor.

my favorite bedtime story

At bedtime, I get all cozy under the covers, and Mama dims the light. In a sleepy-soft voice, she begins my favorite story. “Once upon a time, on a March night, cold and deep with snow,” she says, “you were born. I told your Papa: ‘It’s time!’ Papa ran out in his socks and house slippers to warm up the car.” When she says that, Mama and I always giggle. Mama continues. “I grabbed the red suitcase I had packed weeks before. Papa sang to me as we drove. I rested my head on his shoulder and took deep breaths. Streetlamps shimmered like tiny moons in the snowy dark. It was a beautiful night.” Because I know the story by heart, I pipe up, “At the hospital, a nurse helped you into a blue…
