you may have seen the moon, round like a ball or thin like the tip of a finger nail. by its changes we can count the days of the month.
you may also have seen thousands of millions of stars in the sky. if you tried to count them all, you would never finish.
every day we see the sun rise in the east and set in the west. with its morning light we get up. by its light we see to do our work. with its light and warmth the plants grow and the fruits ripen. the animals also wake up when the sun rises and go out to find their food.
the sun is like a great fire in the sky, lighting and warming our earth.
