In the month of August, the weather can get very hot. What do you like to do when the weather is hot? You might just want to stay inside where it is cooler, but what about when you are playing outside? Most people like to go swimming or eat cold things, like ice cream and popsicles.
This monkey is just the same! Since it lives outside where there is no air conditioning, it is even harder for the monkey to stay cool. The people at the zoo where this monkey lives made it a special popsicle so that it could stay cool in the hot summer heat.
But look at how big the popsicle is! When you eat popsicles, how big are they? This monkey's popsicle is almost as big as it is. Do you think you could eat a popsicle that was only a little bit smaller than you?
Imagine how long it would take you to finish it. Your mouth would be very cold!(Kayleen Hartman, Staff Writer)
