Time to Check In on Independent Reading

We have not blogged about what we are reading for fun in a long time, and we all know that books can really add a lot of joy to your life! I always like to have a good fiction book around...like a good friend. Lately, I have been reading a book called At the Water's Edge. This book is historical fiction, and it is for enjoyment. Historical fiction is based on historical events and people that are true but the story is fiction. Books can be entertaining and POWERFUL!




 What have you all been reading lately? How has the book entertained you? Please tell us about the book you are reading in 4 to 5 complete sentences.  Be sure to use the correct grammar and punctuation.

I listened to Simone and she talked about how many times she failed but got back up and tried again. For example, when I broke my wrist it did not stop me from doing what I love -gymnastics.
