He went around a corner. It shocked him to see a boy who had a strong likeness to him. Sam soon recovered. The other boy stared at him. Then he spoke. “Come with me.”

He needed to be rational. But he couldn’t deny that he wanted to go. So he followed the boy to a chamber. “I am Prince Bertram,” the boy said.

Sam felt shy talking to a prince. “I’m Sam.”

Trade places with me.” The prince said.

“We can’t. My mother will kill me. Moreover, I don’t know anything about being a prince.”

“No one will find out,” the prince interrupted. “We look the same, and even our gestures are the same. It will only last for a week.”

Sam said OK. Soon, Sam’s perspective on being a prince changed. He spent most of his day signing royal documents. At night, the prince’s chamber was cold. He thought he was going to freeze or get sick with a fever or the flu. He was happy when the week ended. So was the prince.

“I didn’t know how to do anything,” the prince said. “I’ve always relied on my servants to do everything for me.”

A river of ice can form at the top of a high mountain with snow that doesn't melt. This snow gets heavy and pushes down on the snow under it. As the snow becomes harder and harder, it turns into ice and grows in size. This ice becomes a cover over the mountain and starts to move slowly down the side of a mountain. This river of ice is known as a glacier. It eventually flows into a sea or ocean and breaks up into giant pieces of ice called icebergs. Glaciers are also the beginning of many rivers around the world.

What happens before the snow turns to ice?

  • Snow falls on the peak.
  • A river forms.
  • Heavy snow pushes down.

What is the passage mainly about?

  • Icebergs
  • Winter
  • Glaciers
