    It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

    by

    Bridge to Terabithia has finally come to an end! I have to say this book took me longer than I expected, but it was worth it. I had previously given a summary of what the book was all about; but this was only when I had just read the first …

    According to my son, Daniel, “reading tells you cool facts about books. Some are fiction and others are nonfiction.”

    Fire engulfs a home
