Many large cities have subways. Large cities benefit from


these underground trains because they can carry many
people to different places quickly and economically. The first
subway system opened in London, England, in 1863. In the
United States, there are major subways in New York, with
640 miles of track, Boston with nearly 50 miles of track, and
San Francisco, with 71 miles of track.

20 - 30 minutes per day. Make it a point and read more often!

The penguin is a bird, but it does not fly. Penguins are


not like other birds. They are unique birds, and even their
feathers are unusual. Other birds have rows of feathers that
grow in a specific pattern. A penguins feathers grow all
over, like hair on a mammal. You will not see penguins in
the air or in trees. The penguin is an ocean bird, living in
and near the ocean. The penguin spends much time in the
ocean. When the penguin is on land, it walks along slowly,
and this limited mobility may be one reason the penguin
spends more time in the water.
