Read from the Book

Just for one day." begged Moon. That was all he wanted. After a lifetime in darkness, Moon wanted to spend just one day as Sun. Moon imagined that Sun got to see wonderful and exciting things in the daylight. At night, with everyone asleep, his world was often boring and lonely. Moon imagined that Sun saw beautiful sights like flowers blooming, people playing, and tigers sunbathing. "I will only trade my day for your night under two conditions," Sun told Moon. "First, if we trade, it will last forever, not just for one day. Second, you must spend the next night in the sky looking very closely at the earth. Closer than you ever have before. And only then can you decide if you want to trade places in the sky." Moon was thrilled! Soon he would be able to see the exciting life of day and leave the dull night behind, and not just for one day, but for forever!
