29. The sun gives more light than all the electric lights in the world. It gives us light and heat. Without sunshine, nothing will grow in the world.

  At night we can see the stars. All day the stars are in the sky, but the light from the sun is bright, so we can’t see them. The stars are bright only when the sky is dark.

  The stars look very, very small, but some are bigger than the sun. Things look small when they are far away. Planes in the sky look like toys, but on the ground they are very big.

  The moon is a ball, too, like the earth and the sun. It is smaller than the stars, but it looks bigger because it is nearer to the earth. The moon has no light. It is bright because the sun shines on it.

 

 

 

30. How much paper do you use every year? Perhaps you can’t you can’t answer that question quickly. Some countries use as much as 50 kilograms of paper for each person in a year. Countries like the United States, England and Sweden use more paper than other countries.

  Paper is made from the wood of trees. So the forest countries like Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland and the United states have become the most important countries in paper making. Finland makes the best paper in the world.

  Today paper-making machines are very big, and they make paper very fast. Watch them run! The biggest machines can make a piece of paper 400 meters long and six meters wide in one minute.

  When we think of paper, we think of newspaper, books, letters, and writing paper. But there are many other uses. Only half of the paper that is made is used for books and newspaper. For example, paper keeps you warm. In Finland’s cold winters, the farmers wear paper boots in the snow. Nothing is warmer than paper boots.
