Does the Moon Follow Us
一晚，方方问爸爸：” 我走， 月亮也走。月亮为什么跟人走？”
One night, Fangfang asks dad: ” When I walk, the moon follows. Why does the moon follow people?”
Dad says: “The moon is very high and very far, people can see it wherever they are. So you feel like the moon is following you.”
Fangfang happily says: “I think I understand now.”
Dad, look! The moon is out again!
Yes, the moon is big and bright tonight!
Dad, look! We walk, the moon moves too; we don’t walk, the moon doesn’t move either. Why does the moon follow us?
Look, where is the moon?
It’s at a place very high and very far from us.
It’s very high and very far, no matter where you are, you can always see it.
So the moon isn’t really following me?
Right. The moon isn’t really following us. We just feel like it is.
