Hi Drew Family,

This is our first Summer Posting.  Below is a picture of me reading with my dog Buddy.  We are at the end of the book Eragon.  It is about a Dragon Rider and his dragon Saphire.  It is part of a trilogy.  I am going to try to read all three.  However, there are so many books I want to read this summer.  Below is also a copy of our Summer Reading Program.  Try to find the flat Mrs. Black.  I have also kept some of the fun readings and activities below today’s posting.  Next week I am going to try to virtually go to the beach.  Stay tune to see if I make it.

I am missing baseball.  Many of you know how much I LOVE going to the National’s games.  I found a read aloud about one of my heros in baseball.  He is Jackie Robinson.  Enjoy the story.  What can you remember about him?  What did you learn about him?  I was lucky to have met his daughter.  She has written a book about her dad.  Because she included talking, she has it in the realistic fiction section.  It is called, The Hero Two Doors Down by Sharon Robinson.  It is a GREAT book.  When I see you, I can tell you about how she is still in contact with the main character.

Have fun.

More Summer Fun that is from the Spring . . . . . .

Space Day!!!!   Count down!

Today I am posting an Author who has written non fiction books about space flight to the moon.  Enjoy her information.  She talks about many people who participated in this such as Katherine Johnson and Neil Armstrong (Don’t forget to listen to the biography below read my Mr. Meltzer).  The other posting is of a real astronaut reading the story Astronaut Annie . . . .



Guess what happens on Wednesday, May 27, 2020?  There will be a space launch.  The first in many, many years.  In celebration, I am posting Brad Meltzer’s Biography of Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon.  He is one of my heroes.  Enjoy listening!

I have added this week’s reading by Michelle Obama.  I love this story.


Boy is it hot today.  I wish I could go swimming.  Wait, I have a friend who does go swimming today in the book, Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall.  Thank you to Candlewick Press for allowing me to read this to you!
