'' I wonder why the moon changes its shape?'' wonders Mother Nature.Every night Mother Nature lays down in the forest and watches the bright stars and moon,but never knew why the moon changes shapes. So one bright night, when the moon was in a crecent shape, all of Mother Nature's trees carried her up into the sky to find out for herself. All of a sudden, right in front of her own eyes, was the moon godess named Moon Beam. She asked her the one question she always wanted to know. ''Why does the moon change shape?'' Moon Beam Said, ''Each night I want to sleep a different way and I magically take parts away and put them back on the moon.'' That's why the moon changes its shape.
