Current Book Report: Classical Literature
Here are some suggestions that support some of this year’s concepts:
- Animal Farm by George Orwell
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
I hope you have the best school year possible. One of the bits of advice I can impart is to keep reading, both inside and outside of school. Some suggestions are listed below:
- Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares: A story about four young girls who have known each other since birth and must struggle with the challenges of growing into young ladies.
2. Hoot by Carl Hiaasen: A young boy who has a hard time with some of the students in his town takes up the fight to save a nest of endangered owls.
Below are some links to great websites:
