 Do you know what a lunar rainbow is? As you know, a rainbow can happen when sunlight meets moisture in the air and the moisture refracts, or changes the direction of the light, and the result is a rainbow. Did you know this event can happen at night? This is called a moonbow. Moonbows happen when moonlight meets moisture in the air, and the moisture refracts, or changes the direction of the light, resulting in a moonbow!

How do you see one? Well, moonbows are fairly rare. Why? Because lots of factors must be in place in order to have a chance of seeing one.

 Recently I read the book “30,000 Stitches” written by Amanda Davis and illustrated by Sally Wern Comport. The book is an amazing story about the American flag that flew over 90 West Street days after the Twin Towers collapsed in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. The flag quickly became tattered, so it was taken down to be retired.

 Last month my family and I went on a Cub Scout Camping weekend at Camp Raymond in Williams, Arizona. Even my sister went. Did you know that girls can be Cub Scouts, too?

We met up with our troop, set up our tent and headed out for a cool hike. On the hike, we caught crayfish and minnows in a little pond. Another troop was supposed to meet us, but the Webelos got a little lost and it took a while for them to find us. Some of the older scouts came over on the hike carrying a snake. It was a garter snake and I got to hold it.

 Jane Camp is a retired teacher and the founder of Reading2paws. She goes to schools and gives kids free books and stuffed animals. Students read aloud to their stuffed animal every day.

Camp says, “Books were special to me and I loved to read. When I retired, I wanted to do something for kids. I volunteered and found out that many kids had no books at home. I started my charity. Some people gave me books to give out, others purchased books for me and some donated money to help.”

 I think “Jump The Moon” by Kathy Simmers is a great book because I love horses! But that’s not the only reason. First, it’s a heartfelt story about a girl’s love for a horse. The story is based on a true story about the author’s daughter and a special horse in her life.

The next reason I enjoyed the book is because the girl never stopped thinking of the horse and she never gave up on the horse. The girl never believed what other people thought about the horse. Some thought the horse was ugly and mean, but she thought the horse was beautiful and caring.
