Rainbow Facts

Happy Thankful Thursday!! 

May your day be terrific!

Don’t forget to take a moment and count all the blessings you have to be thankful for today!!

 

We are on letter Rr of the gratitude alphabet. R is for rainbow!  What are you thankful for that begins with the letter R?

Jinger and Joey think rainbows are awesome! Joey wants to tell you about rainbows. A rainbow is a multicolored arc that appears (forms) up in the sky. Did you know that there are 12 types of rainbows? That is a lot of different types of rainbows. Rainbows are formed by water and light. The drops of rain act like tiny prisms when the sunlight passes through the drops of rain. There are seven colors in a rainbow. The colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. You can remember the colors by the acronym Roy. G. Biv.

 

Is your favorite color in the rainbow?

 

Facts about rainbows:

1. Here is a list of the twelve (12) types of rainbows in alphabetical order:

Circumhorizontal arcs

Double rainbows

Fogbow

Full-circle rainbow

Higher-order rainbows

Monochrome rainbow

Moonbow

Reflected rainbow

Reflection rainbow

Sleetbow

Supernumerary rainbows

Twinned rainbow

2. Did you know that all rainbows are full circles, but they look like arcs when viewed from the ground? No two people can see the rainbow exactly the same. That is because we can’t stand in the same spot at the same exact time so we each see the rainbow differently.

3. A quadruple rainbow is the rarest kind of rainbow. There have only been about five (5) documented sightings of a quadruple rainbow since the 1700’s.

4. You can see more rainbows in tropical areas where there are waterfalls nearby.

5. Earth is the only planet in our solar system where rainbows are possible. That is because earth is the only planet known to have water.

6. Rainbows are a symbol for peace and harmony and GOD’s promise to us that the world will not be destroyed by a flood again. The rainbow is also a sign of a covenant between GOD and the earth.

 

Can you share a fact about rainbows with us?

Penguin Facts

Happy Wednesday!! 

May your day be Wonderful!

Do you like penguins? Today, Joey wants to tell you about penguins! Joey and Jinger love penguins!  A penguin is an aquatic flightless seabird. Did you know that penguins love to swim? Yep, they love the water! Penguins do almost everything in groups including swimming together! Penguins are very social and intelligent creatures. A group of penguins are very noisy and chaotic looking when they are all together. A group of penguins that are swimming in the water together is called a raft. They eat, hunt, swim, and even nest together. They huddle together when it gets really cold so they can stay warm. If you ever see penguins do not ever approach them. Just watch them waddle and play from a safe distance! Never approach any wild animal.

 

Have you ever seen a group of penguins?

 

Facts about penguins:

1. Even though penguins have wings they can’t fly through the air but they are great swimmers! Penguins fly through the water not the air!! Penguins can swim 4 times faster than humans can. They can stay underwater up to 27 minutes.

Little Penguin – the smallest species of penguin.

Macaroni Penguin

Magellanic Penguin

Royal Penguin 14

Snares Penguin

Southern Rockhopper Penguin

Yellow-eyed Penguin

3. A group of penguins on land is called a waddle, tuxedo, or a colony. A group of penguins in the water is called a raft!

4. Baby penguins are called chicks or nestlings. Baby penguins are grey and white in color until they reach adulthood.  Their black and white feather coloring starts coming in when they are about one year old. Adult penguins shed their feathers once a year in a process called Catastrophic molt. During the molting the penguin’s old feathers are pushed out so new ones can grow back in.

5. Penguins are carnivores! They only eat meat. Their diet consists of fish, squid, and tiny crustaceans.

6. Penguins originate from only the Southern Hemsphere. Depending on the type of penguin they can be found living in Antarctica, Australia, Argentina, Falkland Islands, Galapagos Islands, Tristan da Cunha, New Zealand, and various other places in the Southern Hemisphere!!

Quarters and Gratitude

Happy Thankful Thursday!!

Today is a great day to be thankful and count all your blessings!! We have so much to be thankful for in this life and sometimes we overlook all the blessings that surround us. So, take a moment and just look around and see how much you have to be thankful for.

We are on letter Qq of the gratitude alphabet. Q is for quarter! What are you thankful for that begins with the letter Q?

Joey is thankful for quarters! Joey loves to save quarters so he can buy a bag of M&M’s. Once he saves enough quarters up, he gets to get himself a bag of M&M’s. Joey wants to tell you about quarters. Did you know the first quarter that was made by the U.S mint was made in 1796? Yep, that was a very long time ago! They were made of silver. From the years of 1796 to 1930 the front (obverse) of the quarter had the Goddess of Liberty on it and the back (reverse) had an eagle in flight on it.

 

Do you know how many quarters you have to have to make $10.00?

 

Facts about quarters:

1. One quarters is twenty-five (25) cents. It takes 4 quarters to make $1.00.

2. In 1932 the U.S Mint replaced the Goddess of Liberty with George Washington’s bust on the quarter. On the back there is an eagle. George Washington has appeared on all quarters from 1932 to the present year 2021. The back side of the quarter has changed over the years.

3. In 1965 the U.S. mint stopped making quarters with silver. Quarters after 1965 are made from nickel and copper.

4. From 1999 to 2008 the U.S. mint honored each of the fifty states with a quarter designed for each state.

5. In 2009 the U.S mint made 6 more quarters to honor each of the following U.S territories: Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and Northern Mariana Islands.

6. The United States Mint made about 758,000,000 quarters from January to April of 2021. That is a lot of quarters!!

Pencil Facts

Happy Thankful Thursday!! 

May your day be filled with lots of opportunities to be thankful!

 

We are on letter Pp of the gratitude alphabet. P is for pencil.

 

What are you thankful for that begins with the letter P?

 

Joey is thankful for pencils. He loves to draw and write with pencils! He can draw and color a cute little dinosaur with his colored pencils. Joey wants to tell you about the modern pencil lead. Did you know that the modern pencil lead was invented by a man named Nicholas-Jacques Conte. He was a scientist and a French painter who invented the modern pencil lead in 1795.

 

Facts about pencils:

1. Sometime in 1564 graphite became very popular.  

2. Conrad Gessner made the first depiction of a wood pencil in 1565. He had a drawing published that depicted a long thin piece of graphite inside a tube of wood.

3. In 1662 Nuremberg Germany created the first mass produced pencils.

4. In 1812 William Munroe made the first American wood pencils.

5. Sometime In 1858 Hymen Lipman made the first pencil with an eraser attached to it.

6. An average sized tree when cut can make about 170,000 or more pencils. That is a lot of pencils.

7. One pencil can write on average around 45,000 words. That is enough words to write a short story!

8. A pencil can write in space because it doesn’t depend on gravity.

9. Ernest Hemingway said, “If you write with a pencil, you get three different sights at it to see if the reader is getting what you want him to. First when you read it over and then when it is typed you get another chance to improve it, and again in the proof. Writing it first in pencil gives you one-third more chance to improve it.

Pencils are amazing! You can write a novel or you can draw a masterpiece with pencils. So, get out those pencils and start writing or drawing!!

Parents make sure books are child friendly before reading them to your child/children.

 

 

I have written 4 children’s books so far. My 15-year-old daughter illustrated two of them and will illustrate all the rest of them in the series. Two of them are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Target, Walmart, and Books A Million.
