Animal Adventure Comment of the Week

Star Today - Age 9 - From TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO

I think that us humans don't care about what is going with other living things around the planet.We are destroying the earth for not our needs but for our wants.We should care a lot for animals and people around the globe.We should all speak up and let our voices be heard.Caring for the animals is a big responsibility but if we all work together we can make a better place for both humans and animals

Ona - 10 - USA

Luna didn't care to play sports or play with friends or go to movies over summer break, all she wanted to do was read. She read all sorts of books from "Romeo and Juliet" to "How to Eat Fried Worms". She loved every bit of each one. On Monday her mother dropped her off at daycare with a single thing: a book. While all the other children played on the playground or on the computers, Luna sat in a corner with her book. Sometimes Luna would get so engulfed in a story that she couldn't think of anything else.

One day, Luna's mother forgot to send Luna to daycare with a book. The daycare monitors told her to go outside and play on the playground. Luna was terribly sad, but did as she was told. She didn't play though instead she sat and dreamed of a wizard...

"Come with me Luna," Waldo said. "There's still more rides to go on in the other side of the amusement park."

Waldo was 99.99999% wizard and 0.00001% cockroach; it ran in the family. Waldo and Luna were best friends because they both loved to read. Luna was 100% human, unlike Waldo. Their parents dropped them off at the amusement park for two hours that day, they had ten minutes left and still hadn't gotten much done.

"No, Waldo!" Luna cried. "Let's stop here!"

It was a nice place to stop anyways, a lollipop stand. They each got a lollipop. As usual Waldo chomped his down before Luna had even opened hers, and Waldo wanted another. So Luna, as usual, gave him hers. She intended on buying another for herself, but their parents arrived before she was able to. Waldo had chomped down his second one already. Luna felt terrible, now Waldo had had two and she hadn't gotten any. She was looking towards the ground in a mournful way when she saw an unopened lollipop on the ground. She picked it up and ate it, just the way Waldo did.

"Waldo... Luna... Luna... Luna, Luna wake up!" It was one of the daycare monitors, Shellie. Her mother was there, too.

"Time to go home, sweetheart."

The next day, Luna took a trip to the library to get a new book, and for some reason she knew exactly what to look for.
