I hope you had a great summer vacation. When I was a kid, part of me never wanted summer to end. Another part of me was excited—and a little bit nervous—about the school year ahead. Meeting a new teacher, making new friends, and learning new things in a new grade—that’s a lot to look forward to!

eucalypta— what?

“We have a problem. Koalas eat only eucalyptus.” “Will you come for a picnic today?” Dingo barked up into the trees. “Me? A picnic?” Koala peeked out between some leaves. “I’d love to! But just in case you didn’t know, koalas eat only eucalyptus.” “Koalas eat only eucalyptus?” said Dingo. “I did not know! But don’t worry. We will have eucalyptus at our picnic. And we will have the picnic right here, beneath this nice-smelling tree.” “Perfect!” said Koala. Dingo ran to find his friends. “Koala can come to our picnic,” Dingo said. “But we have a problem.

Twelve-year-old Bria Neff loves art and animals. So she combines the two by creating paintings of animals that are endangered. With her mom’s help, she sells the paintings or donates them to auctions—all to raise money for organizations that protect animals and their habitats. We asked Bria about her work. You’ve done hundreds of animal paintings so far. How did you get started? When I was eight, I entered an art contest run by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. I found out that there are thousands of endangered species, and I wanted to help. Since I love to draw and paint, I thought I could use my time and talents to showcase endangered species and their challenges. How do you decide what to paint? I do ones that really inspire me.
