This month, we are asking fourth graders- What are your New Year’s resolutions? As a refresher, a New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year's Day. So, what’s your New Year’s Resolution?

This book has a slow start but then whoa-bammy. It is a fast paced book. A boy, a railroad, a circus, murder and mystery. A must read.
The Testing: This is a very good book. It is a book that was obviously based off of the Hunger Games. The book is thrilling adventure that you can't take your eyes off of. By: Jonathan Arbittier The Author is very good at ending the chapter in suspenseful places. Usually it wouldn't be but if you stop it there it is very much so. Keeper of the Lost Cities Series
