BR 2-08: The Tree House

イメージ
He was going to make something. He was going to make his own house, where anyone called Cleo was banned. All he had to do was to get to the back of the garage without walking on the wet concrete. 
I read "The Tree House" published from Story Street. This book wasn't too short, so it had enough pages to put some side stories. It wasn't just about building the tree house. It had the story that he wanted to keep away his annoying sister, and him helping his stepfather to build new garage. I thought this story wasn't bad, but I thought the writer could have made it more sorted. There was so much information  scattered was hard to find what was what.

BR 2-07: The Great Escape

"Okay, it's all quiet," said Harry. "Give me that crowbar." He took the iron bar and slipped it under the chain and padlock on the main gates. With a sharp tug the chain snapped and the gates swung free.
I read "The Great Escape" Published from Story Street. This story was about four boys unleashing all the animals in the City Farm. The whole city became chaos. Of course, in the end all the animals went back to the farm, and the boys were caught in the pig pen while they were running away from ostrich. But they never explained what happened later. Its a short book, so it ends like this.

"If you really want to win, you will win," Caroline's dad said. He said the same thing before every competition. "It's the same with work. I want to win,so I win. Life is about winning. You have to learn that, Caroline!"(p.10)



I read "The Spring Cup" published from, Helbring Readers. This story is about a girl who have to win the next horse race, or her horse would get sold. Caroline wants to win the race, but her rival, Sophie is stronger than her, so she couldn't win. One day Caroline's father told her that he would sell her horse if she doesn't win the next race.

BR 2-05: The Clever Woman

イメージ
"Go and see Linda McCormack! She's a very clever woman. She knows the answer to everything." Sean Murphy is happy to hear this.

           I've read "The Clever Woman" published from Helbling Readers. This book was about a man who wanted to relax, but couldn't relax because his family is always noisy in the house. He asked Linda McCormack for advice. She told him to get chiken, goose, and goat into his house. Then the house got more noisier. She told Mr Murphy to get the animals out, and after he did that, his family's noises didn't bothered him anymore.             I don't know that if this book is good. What this book is trying to tell is, "If you can't change the enviornment, you have to change yourself". I think this is kind of crusial. Just let the man relax.

I read "Fireball's Heart" published from Helbring  Readers. This book doesn't have the happiest ending in the world. It's about telling the truth. Two Chief from their each prairie was betting if Dark Eyes, a man from Wise Owl's prairie. The bet were if Dark Eyes would ever lie in one week, because Wise Owl said his people would never lie.

It was May 1850. Faith was excited. They were going to California in a covered wagon. "Please," Faith asked Ma, "can I take Josefina?"(p.5)

I've read "The Josefina Story Quilt" published from I Can Read (reading alone 3). It was a story about a girl named Faith that loved her hen, Josefina. First, Josefina wasn't supposed to come because there weren't enogh space in the wagon, but Faith begged her father that she needs Josefina to come. Then her father let her take the hen with her for one promice. If the hen makes any trouble, the hen has to get off from the wagon. Josefina does makes some trouble, but it weren't her falt at all. She does actually helps the family some times. It was a good story.

BR 2-02: "Aesop's Fables"

イメージ
Every story is a fable. This means it has a moral, or a lesson to be learned. See if you can guess the moral before the story ends.

I've read "Aesop's Fables" published from usborne young reading. I think many at least heard of the name Aesop. In this book, there were lot of wide known stories such as "The tortoise abd the hare", "The lion and the mouse". These stories are very simple, but these tell us many things we need to know how to see your friends and how you should be. It's an easy story so children can understand it.
