Book Review by Jacqueline

my brother sam book coverThis book takes place during the American Revolution. Many people wanted their freedom. In this book there is a young boy who has to choose between his brother or his father. His brother chose to be a rebel. His father chose to be a loyalist. They would get very angry at each other. The father was ashamed and embarrassed of his son. Sam decided to leave home. He left because he thought it was the right thing to do. He wanted to fight for what he believed in. He fought in many battles against the British. The father left too. The boy in the story (the brother of Sam) is Tim. Not having Sam or the father around made things hard for Tim. It meant that there was more work at home for Tim to do. He had a lot more chores and he had to do them in not a lot of time. In the end the father was sent to prison. The place was very unclean and nasty. He ( the father) died of infections and disease. The family received a letter explaining what had happened and the letter told Sam to forgive his father. That is what happened in this book.

Book Review and Opinion by Lizbeth

Natural Cures “They” don’t Want You to Know About discusses many important topics, such as why we are sick, why we are overweight and much more.

The reason why we as Americans are so sick is due to our environment lifestyle. We live in a society that believes drugs, known as medicine, solve the medical problem, which is totally false. Every drug has side effects. Therefore, the the body develops something such as bacteria or viruses. The body cannot fight it off, (p. 72), which means the immune system is too weak to fight. When that happens, you become sick more often.

We are overweight because as Americans, we prefer to use the car than walk. Other countries walk about ten miles a day while Americans walk a quarter of a mile.

Riverside Foods Challenge!

Riverside Foods Challenge 012smRiverside Foods was the place to be Monday night. Our library hosted the “Riverside Foods Shopping Challenge” at the store from 7 to 8:30 pm. Eleven players on four teams were put through their paces finding answers to such puzzlers as, “Whose picture is on the current box of Wheaties?,” and “Which brand of cat food has the most flavor choices?” They also worked hard at physical challenges, weighing produce and labeling food items with the label gun. Everyone had a good time and returned to the library for a wrap-up party featuring snacks and prizes from Riverside Foods. Thank you Riverside Foods! We’ll see you next year?
This program and more to come are all a part of the Summer Reading Program. Have you joined yet?
