Blue Rhino Enjoyed His Time with the Star of the Week

I came home with Rhino. We washed up. He liked the water. We had chicken and macaroni and cheese for lunch. Rhino ate lots and lots of chicken. Then it was story time. I read the story “The Monkey and the Fox” with Mom and Rhino.

At night Rhino slept in a pink basket. He had sweet dreams. In the morning after breakfast, we watered the new plants. Then we watched Imagination Movers. Rhino helped me do my homework. He is really smart.

It was really fun to have Rhino at home. I made him a loom bracelet to say thank you.

Here are some facts about Rhinos that I learned:

  1. Rhinos have thick skin to protect them.
  2. They grow to weigh over 1000 kg. That’s around the same as all the students in Grade 2 put together.
  3. Rhinos are plant eaters.
  4. The name rhinoceros means ‘nose horn’.
