Randy Rabbit loves to ride the rapids in his kayak. Even when he is taking a bath, his mind is on riding the rapids. When a drought hits and the Ocoee River dries up, Randy is disappointed. He watches the sky day in and day out to see if the rains are coming. When he sees a very small cloud in the sky, he goes outside and lies in the grass watching the tiny cloud. Soon the rains come, but he is so happy he cannot move. His understanding mother sees him lying in the grass with the rain pouring on his head and just laughs. When the River fills up again, Randy is back to riding the rapids in his kayak. Randy's name makes the "r" sound. Can you think of other words that begin like Randy's name?

On the Trail of Ancient Roman Tourists

The ancient Romans were responsible for many remarkable achievements—Roman numerals, straight roads—but one of their lesser-known contributions was the creation of the tourist industry. The first people in history to enjoy safe and easy travel, Romans embarked on the original Grand Tour, journeying from the lost city of Troy to the Acropolis, from the Colossus at Rhodes to Egypt, for the obligatory Nile cruise to the very edge of the empire. And, as Tony Perrottet discovers, the popularity of this route has only increased with time. Intrigued by the possibility of re-creating the tour, Perrottet, accompanied by his pregnant girlfriend, sets off to discover life as an ancient Roman. The result is this lively blend of fascinating historical anecdotes and hilarious personal encounters, interspersed with irreverent and often eerily prescient quotes from the ancients—a vivid portrait of the Roman Empire in all its complexity and wonder.
