Hayly the Arctic Hare
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Hayly nibbled on a willow shoot. She loved the tender leaves and branches. Summer in the Arctic did not last long so she wanted to make the best of it.
 
2     The only thing wrong with the Arctic in the summer was the bugs. She felt a tickling at the base of one of her ears and raised a foot to scratch it.
 
3     Hayly had been born in June. Though she looked like a rabbit, she was a hare. She was fully furred and could see when she was born; rabbit babies are born naked and blind. Baby hares are called leverets.
 
4     That first summer, Hayly grew quickly. She did not waste any time growing as large as her parents.
 
5     It was now late summer. Hayly, her brothers and sisters, parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins all lived close together. Her mother told her there was safety in numbers.
