She lives far from any stores, so she has to fish to get food. 8 I m noticing that the world above the ice is not very colorful-it s white and gray. Under the ice there are many bright colors! 10 Look at Immi s collection, or group of wonders, or special things! She caught so many bright things

2 when she was fishing and she has put them all over her igloo. 12 Look how many animals are coming to visit Immi s igloo! 24 Look! Immi s white bear looks really different than all the other bright things on the beach. 2 Remember how Immi caught an extra fish just in case, but hardly anyone came to visit her. Maybe nobody visited her before because Immi s igloo, or house, blended into the snowy background. No one could see it. Now that it is bright, it attracts everybody- they all want to come and see it. 20 Remember when Immi threw her bear into the ocean. She didn t know what would happen to it, but now I see that the little boy found it. It must have floated faraway from Immi s cold part of the ocean to this warm part of the ocean. 24 Wow! The colorful bird used to belong to this little boy! 21 I m thinking that the ocean is full of beautiful, bright things. The ocean brings Immi lots of gifts, and one day the little boy s wooden bird shows up near her fishing hole! He didn t know his wonder, or special thing, might end up so faraway.
