Leap Year
By Sharon Fabian

1     Do you know any leaplings? Leaplings are like the rest of us in most ways - but there is one big difference. Leaplings have only one real birthday every four years.
2     That is because leaplings were born on February 29 - a date that occurs only once every four years.
3     Some people wonder why we even have leap years. It doesn't seem fair that certain people don't have a birthday for three years in a row!
4     And what about when it's time for a leapling to get his driver's license? If he doesn't turn sixteen in a leap year, he doesn't have a 16th birthday. Does he have to wait until March 1 for his license? How fair is that?
