Out in the Cold

Yisrael Rutman

Brrrrrrr! This week Jr. takes you from your doorstep to the ends of the universe, from Central Park in New York City to the light-years-distant Boomerang Nebula, to deep under the ice of Antarctica and to the summit of Mount Everest — to find out just how cold it can get. So zip up, and let’s begin our journey.

 

The Great Cover Up

Rochel Burstyn

These days it takes some time to bundle up for the great outdoors. But, how else could we stay safe and warm? Who invented the great winter gear that keeps us warm?

 

Snowed Under

C.B. Gavant

It snowed last night and Yael and I are shoveling the walk. We’ve been at it since 9 a.m., and my fingers feel frozen even though I’m wearing gloves. I wiggle my toes inside my hot-pink boots to be sure they’re still there.
