Magic Tree House Research Guides #06: Magic Tree House Research Guide: Space by Will Osborne
Magic Tree House Research Guides #06: Magic Tree House Research Guide: Space

Sophie stein, May 30, 2011

This book tell's you all about the moon, the sun , and gravity, did you no that if you weighed sixty pounds on earth you would weigh only ten pounds on the moon, did you know the sun was burning hot, maybe now you wouldn't want to visit the sun in a spacecraft,
I don't know the answers to these questions, but what I do know is that space is really more interesting then it looks,
So good luck with the book.

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
The Diary of a Young Girl

Sophie stein, May 7, 2011

The diary of Anne Frank is highly interesting as a a first hand account of the world of an intelligent and vibrant teenage girl. The unique circumstances under which it was written add interesting as well as tragic twists to the story but in essence it remains one of the most authentic account of female adolescence.

Runaway by Alice Munro
Runaway

Sophie stein, May 7, 2011

The beauty of reading any Alice Munro book is that it lasts forever. It's especially true for "Runaway", besides the superb writing, the stories themselves will become part of the fabric of your own life. The "Runaway" characters are so vivid and multi-dimensional that you will feel you know them personally. You might continue to think of them as faraway friends and sometimes wonder how they're getting along or how they would have acted faced with that personal decision of your own. All in all, definitely one the best ways to spend an afternoon.
