Amelia Earhart By: Sarah Stewart Taylor and Ben Towle

Amelia Earhart is a book that is written in a graphic novel format. It talks about The Dead Man's Bay. The Dead Man's Bay is a rocky place out in the sea and by a bay. All sailboats that try to pass, crash into the rocks. This book is also about Amelia taking her first flight and becoming famous.

I would rate this book a 3 out of 5 (1 being the worst and 5 being the best) I rated this book a 3 because I do not like graphic-novel because they are hard to read and understand but you might like it.

I would give it a four because this book tells some really good and cool information about Male Hip-Pocket Frogs like Male Hip-Pocket Frogs have a lot of responsibilities. Here is a responsiblity that Male hip-Pocket Frogs, stay away from predators. BIG TIME! Do you know why this is a big responsiblity for the Male Hip-Pocket Frogs? Read this book to find out.

Landmark 2010 Results!

Woo Hoo! Lewis and Clark placed 2nd among 26 other teams from around the world in the Landmark Game 2010. We are really excited about being one of the top teams. Most importantly, we are really pleased with what we learned along the way. We became expert researchers by using all types of research tools including...encyclopedias, atlases, almanacs, globes, nonfiction books, computer databases, and the internet. We learned so much along the way ( teachers even gained new knowledge) and we are very appreciative of the time and effort that Terry Smith, the game moderator, put into the game to make it a success once again! Thank you Mr. Smith! Check out the Landmark website... http://www.kidlink.org/kidspace/start.php?HoldNode=27600&HoldNav=1430

Roland Smith Is Amazing!

On Monday, March 15th I took my own 3 kids to the Literature Festival in Warrensburg, Missouri. We had a great time seeing 4 great authors! We ALL especially loved the presentation by Roland Smith.
