Click & the Kids
story and art by Betsy Page Brown
Image: There are five pictures in a staggered line. There is a picture of a girl named Amy, a boy named Martin, a mouse named Click, a woman named Liz, and stars.
Amy says, “Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. Gee, there are so many stars out I can't decide which one to wish on.”
- Which star in the sky never changes position?
[anno: The North Star never changes position.]
- Why was this an important star for sailors and explorers?
[anno: The North Star helped them find their way.]
- How can you find this star in the sky?
[anno: Look for the Big Dipper in the sky. Follow the line created by the two stars on the outside of the dipper to the end of the handle of the Little Dipper. The end of the handle is the North Star.]
