Wendy's World - Night and Day
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Wendy, Tess, and Tim were playing kickball. It was a warm summer evening. "I sure like playing outside," said Tess. "We still have enough light to see the ball."
 
2     "And we don't have to stay inside to keep warm," added Tim.
 
3     "I like it, too," said Wendy. "In the winter it gets dark much sooner."
 
4     "I don't know how it happens," said Tess. "I'm just glad we have more sunlight when it's warm."
 
5     "I just got a book about day and night at the library," said Wendy. "I found a lot of interesting information in it."
 
6     "Like what?" asked Tim.
 
7     "The book started by telling a myth about the sun," replied Wendy.
 
8     "What's a myth?" asked Tess.
 
9     "A myth is a story that explains why things happened in nature," answered Wendy. "People used to make up stories about gods and goddesses. They said that gods and goddesses were responsible."
