Abby Einstein was interested in all sorts of science. She always had a magnifying glass with her, and she always asks questions! One day Abby decided to take a walk and learn about different animals. Abby started by going to the cave on the outside of town. When she got to the cave she found bats. They were making lots of high squeaking noises. “Hmm.” Abby said. “The bats are using sound to find their way in the dark!” Next Abby walked to the park. “The squirrels are collecting nuts for the winter!” Abby decided she was hungry, so she went home for a snack break. Her mom had made some blueberry muffins in the oven. “Do you want to feed the extra blueberries to the birds?” Her mother asked.
“Sure, do birds eat blueberries?” Abby asked.
“Yes, they love blueberries! But goodness Abby, you need to put on some sunscreen or else the sun will burn your skin!”
“What other types of animals are there?” Abby asked, while putting on her sunscreen.
“Well, there are many types, why don’t you go outside with your magnifying glass and see some of their prints on the ground.”
Abby went outside and saw many animal tracks.
“Time for dinner.” Abby’s mom said.
