"I know it is wet.
And the sun is not sunny.
But we can have
Lots of good fun that is funney!"
"Look at me!
Look at me now!" said the cat.
"With a cup and a cake
On the top of my hat!
I can hold up TWO books!
I can hold up the fish!
And a little toy ship!
And some milk on a dish!
I can hop up and down on the ball!
But that is not all!
That is not all....

He was jealous and unfriendly, and he lost his temper easily. He wasn't very nice person, but he was one of the greatest scientific geniuses who has ever lived.
No one thought the sickly baby would live, but he did. His father, also named Isaac, had died three months before his son's birth. He had been a well-off farmer, but he couldn't read or write --- not even enough to sign his name.
Starting in a bakery, it burned for three days. Most people managed to escape, but 80 percent of the buildings in London were ruined. Although no one knew it, the plague was carried by rats and fleas. By destroyed all the filthy old buildings where the rats lived, the fire may have helped end the plague.

Newton was often so busy thinking that he would forget whether or not he had eaten. The rumor at Cambridge was that his cat got fat from the meals Newton left sitting on his table. He slept only a few hours a night and often not in his bed.
The Royal Society thought the best way to advance knowledge was to discuss ideas, so each man could build on --- or knock down --- what the others were thinking. Their motto was Nullius in verba, which means roughly, "Don't take anyone's word for it."
Clubs like the Royal Society were springing up all over in Newton's time. This period is often called the Age of Enlightenment. Enlightenment means learning the kind of important knowledge that changes the way people think. The great scholars of the time believed in working together. They wanted to deal with issues of all kinds using reason, logic, and observation --- not superstition or religion.

Newton spent even more time and energy on alchemy than he did on ordinary science. His servant reported that Newton often sat up all night in his private lab at Cambridge, bent over a roaring fire, working on mysterious experiments.
After Newton died, the Royal Society discovered he had written over a million words about alchemy. They were so embarrassed by this that they marked the papers "not fit to be printed." Newton's writings about alchemy were not published until 2004.
Newton also created his three laws of motion. He had learned the first law from Galileo. It says that if something is moving, it will keep moving until something makes it stop. If something is sitting still, it won't move until some force makes it move.
The second law shows how much force is needed to make something move or stop moving.
The final law says that, "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." This means that every time you push on something, it pushes back just as strongly, but in the opposite direction.
For years, counterfeiters had been clipping bits of silver off the edges of coins to make new coins. By Newton's time, much of England's money was worth less than it was supposed to be. The government had to do something. They decided on the Great Recoinage of 1696.
The Mint collected all the clipped coins and remade them into a new form of coin. These coins had ridged edges, so they were harder to fake. Newton oversaw the whole thing. He did such a good job that in 1699 he was promoted to Master of the Mint. He stayed in this position for almost thirty years, until he died.
Once the Great Recoinage was done, Newton turned his attention to catching counterfeiters.
He made himself into a kind of detective with a network of spies and informers. His greatest triumph was the capture of the clever counterfeiter named Chaloner. Newton pursued him for years and finally succeeded in having him executed.
For the next two hundred years, almost all physics had its roots in his ideas. Only at the beginning of the twentieth century did another great genius --- Albert Einstein --- discover the limits of Newton's discoveries. In day-to-day life, however, people rarely have to deal with situations where Newton's physics doesn't make sense. It's still the way we understand the world.
Whether we are riding a bicycle, catching a baseball, or dropping an apple, most of us most think of movement in terms we learned from that strange, bad-tempered, brilliant loner Isaac Newton.

A read-a-thon is a type of fundraising event. Participants obtain sponsors who pledge to give a certain amount of money for each book read.
Here’s how a read-a-thon works.
1. A student gathers sponsors (parents, friends, neighbors).
2. The student reads as many books as they can within a set period.
3. The school gives the student a certificate with the number of books they read.
4. The student collects the pledged money which is given to the school of a charity.
