Free juice.

Free Juice

by Giselle Fortune 

JJ-46_medium

Jack finds himself in a dilemma when his friend Luke encourages him to take some juice from an opened box of cartons at school. This story gives insight into Jack’s thinking and his feelings – in particular, his feelings about his own behaviour and why the other children don’t seem worried about what they have done. The text explores concepts
of honesty, bravery, and self-awareness and is well worth revisiting over more than one reading session.

The gulls.

The Gulls of Sulphur Bay

by Sue Gibbison 

JJ-46_medium

Sulphur Bay, at the southern end of Lake Rotorua, is a wildlife reserve. Its hot springs make the area popular with many water birds, but the sulphur in the springs also causes some problems for them. This article describes how the gulls live in this unique environment. There are two other items in this Junior Journal linked to Lake Rotorua. They are “The Gulls of Mokoia Island” and a retelling of the legend of Hinemoa and Tūtānekai.
