I’ve been enjoying the Earth while being out of school, because of school closures due to COVID-19. I’ve been doing a lot of hiking through Arizona. I saw a lot of wildlife like chuckwallas, geckos and chipmunks. I even got to see a beehive up close. My dad got me a new bike and I’ve been riding it all over the neighborhood with him. My sister and I made obstacle course in our backyard. I’ve had a lot of fun doing these things outdoors.
“Dear Justice League” is a great new book where young fans of the Justice League ask their favorite super heroes questions about what it’s like to be a super hero.

Gus does fun things with the sheep like using one as an umbrella and he tries to get his little brother involved, but he doesn’t like it and cries a lot.
