We’re paying tribute to veterans by explaining why we celebrate the important holiday, Memorial Day. We take a dive into the history of Memorial Day and the sacrifices veterans made to keep us safe. Then, here comes the sun! Did you know the sun is a star? We talk about why the sun is important for our planet and how the sun plays a role in creating the Northern Lights. Plus, we take you to Sacramento, California to meet a baby orangutan! He is the first orangutan of his kind to be born at this zoo in more than 40 years! She’s all about that bass — our Kids correspondent talks to Meghan Trainor about who and what inspires her to make music and her advice to kids who have a passion for singing.
