Eleanor Roosevelt Quiet No More
By: Doreen Rappaport

And this is the story of Eleanor Roosevelt.I think the theme is Courage because she had the courage to talk in front of all of the people. Back then the Wifes had to have an interest in what ever the husband had an interest to.She had to persuade a lot of people around the world so her husband could be president. She stood up for what she believed until it happened. This book makes me think of is that I will always have a Voice..............

The Moon Over Star
Dianna Hutts Aston
The theme is courage. The whole family watched Neil Armstrong land on the moon except Grandpa.
Grandpa just thought it was a waste of money. So he does not like the moon. But at the end he was watching the moon and he actually did like the moon after all. My opinion is to not be like the Grandpa because he thinks it's a waste of money just to see the moon. But I think it's fun because you can jump on it. it's like floating there is no gravity.

Mighty Jackie
Marissa Moss

I think the theme is courage because Jackie never gave up. Jackie had the courage to stay up and practice baseball until her arms hurt. "She worked hard." Jackie had the courage to play on an MLB team with all the boys. Jackie had the courage to not let insults get to her. For example, In the text Babe Ruth Said "Woman are to delicate to play baseball. "They will never make Good."It would kill them to play ball every day". The message in the book makes me think just because your a girl or a boy doesn't mean you can't do something that you can't do.

Taylor had courage to be in a race and was the only African American in the race and people said he can't do it and proved them rong. He had courage to porform his bikesicle stunts in frout of all those people. Taylor had enough detecatn and that's how he got his name Mager Taylor.
