Kona admired the beauty of the ice storm. "He was moved and strengthened by the beauty around him." Have you ever experienced an ice or snow storm? What do you remember about the wonder and beauty of it? Or have you ever been so thankful to be home after a long journey? Describe that feeling.
"But what they were about to face was a danger none of them could have imagined." Wow! It sounds like trouble is coming. Have you or someone in your family experienced an ice storm? How could an ice storm be trouble or how could it be dangerous?
Professor Albert named Kona after his favorite coffee. Ask your parents how they picked your name. What are some names that you might pick for your future children? If you could pick your own name right now, what would you pick?
