Did you know that there is a CRATER on the surface of Mercury that’s big enough to hold the state of Texas? Or how about this: if you stay at the Jule’s undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida you will SCUBA DIVE to your room! How cool is that? I have one more for you: male pandas do a HANDSTAND while peeing to mark trees.
It is poetry month in the US, so I thought I could make a review about a special poem from Amanda Gorman.
I got “THE HILL WE CLIMB” from the Easter bunny.
Amanda Gorman became the youngest inaugural poet ever. She performed her poem at the inauguration of Joe Bidden earlier this year. I really liked the poem so I definitely wanted to share this little book with you.
Boring, Illinois. Brian can definitely think of a better way to spend his holidays. He couldn’t stay at home as his scientist dad got stationed at the North Pole. So Brian had to go to uncle Gary’s house, because he was the only one who had the time to take care of him over the summer.
What is the name of your favorite teacher? I am spoilt because almost all of my teachers are and have been very nice. But there is one teacher in particular that I like the most because she is very kind, stays calm in any situation, motivates her students to give their best and is also fun.
This book is also about a great teacher.
I hope you all had a great Christmas break. Happy new year! Welcome 2021!
2020 was not the greatest year, but this quote I wanted to share, because it is a very good explanation of last year: “There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.” I personally found 2020 pretty good except Corona/Covid-19 of course. The virus also had good things to it – like everyone learned to have more responsibility than normal and we learned a lot about technology, whether at distance schooling or work. It was also very nice to have more time with my family and of course I had loads of time to read.
My motto for 2021 is: #1 Stay positive. #2 Be respectful to everyone.
Because of the virus we didn’t go away during the break and we only went out to play tennis or to go for walks or biking – so I spent pretty much time inside reading. This book my parents got me as a present on Christmas eve. After reading the Funjungle and Spy School novels and also part of the Moon Base Alpha series, I have to say this book is the best book Stuart Gibbs ever created! I loved it a lot and I got into trouble a couple of times because it was so hard to stop reading to have family dinner or lunch or breakfast or what so ever. I pretty much read it in one go because it was soooo good.
How can one save the lives of eleven people, a bird, 3 dogs a cat a dozen of cows? This is a book you must read. It is sooooo good.
Chaos und Panik in Hommelsdorf. Kevin-Jerome, der Tiger aus dem Zoo ist ausgebrochen. Wieso? Weshalb? Warum? Ein neuer Fall für die schwarzen Pfoten.
Chaos in the FunJungle Zoo. Henry the Hippopotamus was assassinated! He was floating belly up in his pool. How could that happen? Who did it?
When Emma Walker, the daughter of the new postmaster, came to his village Dit Sim thought this means the worst luck ever.
This awesome book is really special to me because a good friend of mine gave it to me. It is his favourite book.
So, what is it all about?
