Cute responses. So what is your Theme? Where is your secret Number?
Nice Job Sheradan. Where is your secret number? How is the theme of your book first kiss? What does that mean? Is there a lesson in there like "Everybody needs a first kiss" or "first kiss or you are a loser"?
Good explanation of your book. The choice of your theme is not exactly right. First Kiss would be an event but not a message from the author. How about Having patience? That would be a better choice.

The theme of this story is never get too busy for your children

You started strong with your blog. I was getting excited by your theme. However, nothing in your blog show any examples of your theme. I agree with Dawson - expand, make it longer.

Good fix. Thanks. What is the theme? It seems like you might have wanted to say something else, but got tired of it and just stopped. It feels unfinished.
The Indian in the Cupboard
Lynne Reid Banks
The theme was- Believe in yourself-
It began with a birthday present Omri didn't want-a small plastic Indian. But when his brother gave him a cupboard with a key,something happened. Omri put his little toy in it, and locked it. When he opened it the Indian was alive! Omri couldn't believe his eyes, especially when it started talking! Omri starting getting commands from him like, get me water, make fire.Omri would go to the store and buy plastic food, put it in the cupboard, then give it to the Indian. Omri didn't want anyone to know about his secret. Not even his friend who gave it to him, Patrick. Omri had kept his secret for a while now. Until Patrick came over…
If you want to know what happened with Patrick, read the book and find out!!

Be true to your word.
My book is about a boy named Stanley who is under a curse from his great great grandfather Elya Yelnats. Grandpa Yelnats was supposed to carry Madame Zeroni up a hill, but he didn't and ever since, the Yelnats family has had bad luck. Now Stanley is accused of stealing a pair of "Sweet Feet" tennis shoes. At court he is given the choice to go to prison or Camp Green Lake. Stanley said he's never been to camp before, so he decides to go to Camp Green Lake. There is no lake at the camp, but there is an awful lot of holes. At Camp he makes some new friends: Armpit,X-Ray,Squid,Magnet,Zigzag,andZero( Zeroni). Every morning they wake up at 4:30 to dig holes 5 feet deep and 5 feet wide. Zero was always the first one done. Everyday Stanley dug he got blisters and they stung like crazy. After getting into a fight with one of the wardens, Zero ran away. Stanley ran away to find Zero. When Stanley finds Zero, he is in a boat that is stuck upside down in the dirt, living on the jars of peaches he found inside. As they try to find a road, they find God's Thumb (a small mountain) and decide to climb it. As they climb God's Thumb, Zero gets knocked on the head and passes out. Stanley carries Zero on his back, up the hill.
Because a Yelnats carried a Zeroni up the hill, the curse is lifted.
If you want to find out what the warden is making the boys look for by digging everyday,
read the book to find out.
Great job on this blog. I think you have chosen a good theme.

I have read Micheal vey Caden. But I have a question : What book is it?
Great job on your theme. I think it fits perfectly. You have a sentence in your summary that does not related to the rest of your paragraph. you might want to change that, "His best friends name is Ostin". There is also a convention error in that sentence only. However, everything else looks very nice.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
World War II
Bruno and his family lived in Berlin but they had to move. Bruno and his family moved to a new house. There was a concentration camp near their new house.

Book Title: Wonder
Author: R.J. Palacio
The book I read was Wonder. It is about a kid named August also known as Auggie, he is 10 yrs. old and lives in Manhattan. He has a deformed face and cleft palate.. Due to many surgeries he had always been homeschooled. Then his parents wants him to go to Beecher Prep, a private school. He doesn't want to at first. He ends up going to school. At first all these people are looking at him because of his face. He meets friends named Jack Will and Summer. Their is a kid named Julian and his friends Henry, Amos and Miles. They have a fight and are mean to Auggie and his friends. Later on in the book they go to a over night camp. They are at the camp then Jack needed to go to the bathroom.

The book ends at school graduation where Auggie gets a standing ovation and is awarded the "Henry Ward Beecher medal". This is given to the student who has been the biggest example throughout the year. Aggies mom whispers in his ear, "You really are a Wonder, Auggie."
One of the things I learned was Don't judge a boy/girl by his/her face.
Well done Ryan! Your theme is perfect, your summary is great, and your sentence structure is very good. You need to watch your punctuation or lack of punctuation. You have one sentence that has a list, but not commas separating the list items. I can still give you a 3 but not a mastery.
I'm lovin it.

Thank you for reading my report about Warriors (Forest Of Secrets)
I hope you all read this book, and it is at our school library.
Wow Dylin, you have given a lot of information - too much information. A summary should be shorter and not give away too much of the plot.
I don't see your theme? What were you thinking the lesson the author was trying to tell you?
I'd have to give you a 2 this time.
The Fantastic Secret of Owen Jester
By Barbara O’Connor
Book Blog by Gavin Jensen
Themes: Relationships are good and important, it is better to let animals be free
This was a fun and interesting book. The main characters in this book are Owen, Viola, Stumpy, Travis, Earlene and Tooley the frog. Some of the other characters are Owen’s parents and his grandfather, who is sick. The setting of this book is Carter, Georgia. It is a small town and one of the favorite places in the town is the pond. At the beginning of the story Owen and his friends find a special frog, Tooley, and make a cage for him. Owen decides to let the frog go so he could be free and not have to stay in the cage. His friends Travis and Stumpy got mad at him when he did this so they stopped helping him with a submarine they had found. Owen and Viola found the submarine that fell off the train. Other people thought the submarine was lost. Owen and Viola learned to drive it around the pond. You'll have to read this book to find out what happens after they do this.
One of the themes of this book is that relationships are important. One of the important relationships is the one Owen has with his grandfather who is sick. Owen also develops a relationship with the frog and feels bad for him so that's why he lets him go. Owen also learns that sometimes friends can get mad at each other, but still be friends.

The author wrote these true stories to tell how to survive a disaster like these.
The first disaster was the Children’s Blizzard 1888. It was a nice day until the blizzard hit. It hit when the city of Groton, Dakota Territory didn’t even expect it. In a blizzard, so much snow fills the air it’s impossible to see. A kid was trapped in the storm but his brother found him and took him home.
In the Titanic of 1912 they got on the Titanic and they had a good time until they crashed into a glacier. They ran to the boats but a boy was stuck when he got to a boat he saw his mom then he found out that his dad was gone. Lots of people died but the boy’s mom and him got to America it was on the front page of the newspaper.
The Molasses Flood of 1919.It was a nice day in Boston when a tank full of molasses blew up and a 40 ft tall wave of molasses came in and swiped away a big bit of the east side of Boston. 21 people were killed and 150 were injured. People were so mad at USIA that the company was put out of business.
If you want to learn more of the disasters and the other two the Japanese Tsunami 2011,
The Henryville Tornado 2012 read the book.
Good summaries of the stories. I've never heard of the wave of molasses. I'll have to look that up. I am confused on the theme. I didn't find anything you marked as "Theme" but there is the one sentence at the beginning that sounds like you were trying to tell the theme. So you theme could be to "Don't give up, even in impossible situations." or "Keep trying". This will be scored as a 3 but not mastered.

I think you gave away too much information. Your summary should be shorter than this and not give the endings away. I didn't find your secret number or the theme. Did you forget about that? Remember to check the requirements of the current month so you can get all the credit. Also, get your book approved and get your secret number from me.

Theme: Everyone gets a second chance
The book I read was called Holes. It is about a teenage boy named Stanley Yelnats IV. His family believed that they were cursed because of his “no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great grandfather. Stanley always seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. His family was very poor and they lived in a small apartment with Stanley’s grandfather. His grandfather told him lots of funny stories about his ancestors. His father is an inventor and has been trying to find a cure for smelly old sneakers.
One day when he was walking home from the last day of school a pair of sneakers fell from the sky and landed on top of Stanley. The next thing he new was that cops were chasing him and he did not know why. They were after him because of the sneakers. He tried to tell them that they fell out of the sky, but they did not believe him. His parents tried to convince the police that Stanley did not steal them. The cops went to his apartment to look for clues. The sneakers weren’t just any sneakers. They were a famous baseball players named, Clyde Livingston, who was Stanley’s favorite baseball player. The police found a poster of him in his room.
Stanley was sent to a camp for troubled kids called Camp Green Lake. Green Lake did not have a lake anymore and it was just a wasteland with lots of holes. At the camp they work all day digging holes. Stanley meets all different kinds of kids. There is a boy named Zero who never talked. Stanley was asked how he got there and he said that he stole a pair of sneakers. Zero finally talks and asks Stanley if the sneakers had red X’s on them and they did. Stanley and Zero start to become friends. They make a deal that if Stanley teaches Zero how to read, Zero would dig for Stanley. When the leaders find out Zero gets in trouble and runs away. Stanley takes the wardens truck to go and look for Zero and crashes it. He finds him almost dead in the middle of the desert. Stanley remembers a story that his grandfather told him about his great -great grandfather who was stranded in the middle of the desert and he tells him about “God’s Thumb”. Stanley sees a mountain that looks exactly like a thumb and he takes Zero there and gives him water and food. The next day Stanley says that he is feeling lucky and they go and dig in one of his holes and find a treasure that has Stanley’s name on it. They figure out that Stanley was framed for taking the shoes, so they take him home, but Stanley won’t go without Zero. Zero goes with him and they find his mom. Stanley splits the money with zero. The curse was reversed and they are given a second chance.
I enjoyed reading this book. I have also seen the movie, but I like the book more because there is much more detail.
Nice Job - I found it very interesting. I think you might have put in too much information. You theme is perfect! The way you supported your theme at the end was fabulous! I regretfully have to inform you that I can only give you a Mastery!

I think the theme was: To show how stong families are.
Mary, Jesse, and Harry, Jim's son were stuck in 70 A.D. from the last book. Harry's soon to be step sister, Megan, and Harry's uncle, Garth, went back to when they were to try to find them. To sum it all up, there were lots of things that happened and lots of people from back then that they met. Megan and Garth finally found Harry, Marry, and Jesse. If you want to find out how this happened and if more stuff happens, then you will have to read the book. I highly recommend this book along with the other 6 books in the series that I have read.
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle
2190 is my secret number
Cause and effect
Charlotte Doyle was going on a ship that her father owned and she was supposed to go with 2 families. A man came up to her to get her trunk. He heard the captain’s name and ran away. Then Charlotte Doyle went onboard. She found out the families were not coming. A man came to her and led her to her cabin. Her cabin was really small and dirty and she wanted to leave but she couldn’t. The next day she tried to leave but the ship was already sailing. She went to the captain’s cabin and the captain was really nice to her. The cook Zachariah was really nice, too. He gave her a dirk to keep her safe. She wanted to give it back but he wouldn’t let her. The captain told her if she saw a red robin to tell him immediately. She found one in the forecastle were the crew slept. She also saw guns there. She told the captain and he got really angry. He thought Zachariah did it so he got out a whip and started whipping him. Miss Doyle was sad when she found out he died. Before she found out she took the whip and hit the captain. He was mad. He did not forgive her, so she wanted to become a crew member to make up for killing Zachariah. I've only read half the book so far but it is really good.

The Maze Runner
Thomas wakes up on the Glade remembering nothing at all but his name. The Gladers are all teenagers who made up their own strange words. Thomas asks many questions but it seems no one will answer them. He gets paired up with a roommate named Chuck. Soon he finds out that they are surrounded by a maze with hundred foot tall walls. He learns that the walls shut at night and the whole maze will actually move! When he has been there only one day an alarm goes off while he was on a tour. Alby is a boy who is supposedly the boss and he was the one who was giving the tour. Alby tells him that the alarm means a newbie is arriving. But newbies only arrive once a month and when supplies arrives then the alarm doesn't go off at all. So when everyone runs to the box there's a girl, and there's never, EVER been a girl. The girl was in a coma and was taken by the med-jacks (doctors). Later Minho and Alby go into the maze to find a dead griever (a strange very creepy work of animals and machine), but the walls were shutting when they were running back so Thomas broke rule number 1, he ran into the maze while Newt was screaming to him “NO”! It was too late, the walls had closed, locking them inside with the grievers. Minho very angrily told him that the griever was not really dead, and that they’ll be dead soon too. Minho said no one had EVER survived the walls closing and being in the maze overnight. Minho left unconscious Alby to die. Thomas couldn't watch that happen so when Minho ran away he finally found a way to hang him on the wall of the maze with the ivy. Then he was attacked by a griver that climbed the wall easily. After surviving one night in the maze and saving Alby people are astonished. Minho convinces the others to make Thomas a “Runner”. After a meeting in the council, Galley runs away somewhere. Then the girl wakes up and she and Thomas can talk telepathically. She had a message; “I triggered the end”. Then later that night the walls didn’t shut. That would mean no protection from grievers. Everyone huddled in one small homestead, then Gally runs in and tells them that the grievers will pick them off one by one. Then flings himself into a griver committing suicide. (Piece of info: getting stung by a griever is the most painful thing ever, but you will go through the changing and will be able to remember about your life before). Thomas did what he had to do, with people screaming “no” and Tesra (the girl) yelling no in his mind; he flung himself into a griver.
After he was stung, he was screaming and kicking and going through the changing. He then found out many things. Meanwhile, people were using the Runner’s maps (a job where you map every piece of the maze to find patterns) to see patterns to help them figure out how to get out. They figure out that is says certain words but the words mean nothing. Then Thomas says something from the changing that is astonishing: “The maze can’t be solved…”
*words of advice, I left out many deaths, keys, some of my favorite parts, the ending the amazing cool makes ya wanna read kind of parts, scary parts, and things like Chuck dies…
So you can find those pieces by reading…

That is a long blog talk. I really enjoyed the way you talked about the book. You must have really enjoyed it. Griever - Check you spelling. I didn't see where you said what you thought the theme was. Everything else looks good. 3
This proves your writing is good. I got so involved I forgot to look for your theme. Where is it?
Star Wars a New Hope:
The Princess, the Scoundrel,
and the Farm Boy
By: Alexandra Bracken
Secret Number: 1923
I felt the theme of this book was no matter how bad the situation is never give up
The book I read is the retelling of the Star Wars movie “A New Hope.” It is slightly different than the film because it is a mixture of George Lucas’ film script/ the movie, Brian Daley’s 1981 radio script, and the author’s imagination. When I say the author’s imagination it doesn’t mean she goes crazy and throws in all sorts of crazy stuff. What I mean is she adds more details about the character’s emotions and back stories you probably wouldn’t know.
There are 3 sections as the title says they are the princess, the scoundrel, and the farm boy. They are referring to Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Luke Skywalker. In each section for each character it is their big moment in the book. For example, the farm boy section is Luke’s big moment when he blows up the Death Star.
Now I will tell you what the book is all about, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away the Jedi and the republic watched over the galaxy, until the very leader of the republic over threw the Jedi and now the once peaceful republic has become the evil empire. Nearly every Jedi had been wiped out and the so called “chosen one” Anakin Skywalker had turned to the dark side and become the evil Darth Vader. Out of the ashes of the republic, individuals who refused to join the empire, have come together to restore peace to the galaxy as it once had. Luke, Leia, and Han all have joined together to restore peace and order to the galaxy as it once had…
Matt, you continue to impress me with your awesome abilities. I love the way you set this up! I love the intro you gave. Everything about it is great! I HAVE to give you a mastery.
