Einstein Junior read this book yesterday. When he finished, I told him to write a book report about it. I didn't use the words "book report" because I remember how those two little words struck fear in my heart as a child. Instead I had him bring me lined paper, 15 lines on it, and I said I wanted him to write lots of sentences that told about the story.
He is so funny. He sat down with the paper and his pencil and promptly said, "Now I just forgot about the whole story!" I told him the book was right here and he could feel free to remind himself. Here is his report:
"They found a valuble (sic) Civil War sword, cleaned a library, and caught a mean man. And they cautiously live in Pete--a friend of Grandfather's house. As you read a long story with The Boxcar Children, the book The Deserted Library Mystery comes to life as you read about The Boxcar Children, Grandfather, and their new friend, Miguel.
After I read "comes to life" I thought for sure he copied the back of the book, but he didn't!
I have no idea where he got that phrase from! His daddy thinks he got it from his Highlights magazine, and that's also where he figured out to sign it:
Who am I, you ask?
In 2006 I had a stroke, and every day my husband encourages me to use my remaining brain cells to the best of my ability. I love to organize, make crafts, and go on adventures (safe ones). I hope that through my blog posts, you will be encouraged to accept and make the best of challenges God throws at your life.
