Summer!!!

Summer is coming up soon!  I am going to Colorado for a week or more.  I am going to Steamboat Springs for a camp that is about drama and dance.  I might even learn how to ride a horse!  I have never been to a sleep away camp before.  I hope it’ll be really fun.  I’m really nervous, but my uncle’s girlfriend is working with the horses there.  Having her at the camp with me will make me feel a bit better.  She also went there when she was my age.  I am also going to Nassau for a gymnastic camp.  I get to stay with my grandmother at this camp.  I can’t wait for summer!

Music Recital

The music recital is coming up next Friday!  It is for everyone to show off their talents and what they can do.  I will be playing the guitar and singing.  Lots of my friends will also be performing on stage.  Some of the people who are performing have done music lessons.  The incredible teachers are Mr. Justin and Mrs. Carly.  We have all worked really hard and hope that everyone can come.  I am very excited and a little nervous because this is my first year playing the guitar in the recital.

Percy Jackson: The Lighting Thief

This book is about Percy Jackson’s life when he thought he was just a regular kid and couldn’t sit still in class.  He gets kicked out from one school to the next school.  Then one day, he meets a kid named Grover who was a goat /half human/half goat.  Percy did not know because Grover was dressed as human. Then something weird happened…………..

Percy is not the boy’s name it’s a nickname to find out his real name and learn about what happens to him, read the books! It’s a whole series full of his adventures.

I recommend this book  for people who are interested in quests and myths. Image result for percy jackson and the lightning thief

Outlaw a book review

Outlaw, written by Michael Morpurgo, is an awesome book. It is based on the tales of Robin Hood. The book begins with a boy in England. He finds a skull, a long bow, and a silver arrow head. He faints, and in his dream, he goes back in time. Robin Hood’s father is eye gouged for stealing the king’s deer. Robin runs away and joins the outlaws and they steal from the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. Eventually, they bring Richard the Lionheart back from Austria who was the former king of England. This is an amazing book for anyone who likes historical adventure reads. I truly recommend this book for everybody.

Ruby Bridges Book Review

510UGt7PDCL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

 

The book I am reading is called Ruby Bridges.  The book is about a girl named Ruby who was born in Mississippi and was very poor.  By the age of six, she and her family moved to New Orleans. Ruby went to an all black school because at that time there was segregation going on. Then NAACP contacted Ruby`s parents so that she take a test to go to a white school. Ruby and four other children ( I believe ) passed.  A lot of white parents got mad that a black girl would be coming to to an all white school and they frightened Ruby by saying they would kill her and poison her.  Today I am elated that no matter what colour you are, you are treated equally.

Over the Christmas break I got to watch Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for the first time!  I have read the book and it is my favorite one I have read so far from the Harry Potter series.  I had not watched the movie yet .  While watching it there was a time I was so excited that I was sitting on the edge of my chair.  There was another time when my heart started getting louder with much fright.  It was an amazing movie, I would highly recommend it!

The Truman Show

truman-show-delusion-1-728

The movie The Truman Show was released in 1998. I’m reviewing it is because I thought it has an interesting topic. It was about a man named Truman who was raised in an artificial environment. He lives in a small town surrounded by water.  When Truman was six, his father “died” on a sailboat and that gave Truman a fear of the water. Later in the film he begins to figure out that his “world” is fake.  Everything revolves around him and he is being filmed day and night for a hit TV show!  Millions of people are watching him throughout his whole life.  They have over five thousand cameras in the small little town, and he needs to find ways to get away from the cameras to escape from the creators of the film.  When Truman tries to get away on a sailboat to to escape the show, the producers throw water and wind in his way but he won’t back down.  Will he escape this terrible paradise?

It was an interesting movie and in case you want to watch I will leave the ending as a surprise.  I definitely recommend picking this movie up . It is one of my favorites and gets a ten out of ten in my book.  It is a family friendly movie and is a mix of drama and comedy.

Ps. It’s really weird when Truman’s wife tries to advertise food items

The Secret Life of Pets

I recently saw the Secret Life of Pets.  The movie was about this dog named Max and his friend Duke.  This lady picked up Duke from the pound and carried him home.  At first, they weren’t actually friends always fighting over the doggy bed.  Through all of the fighting and adventure that later happened, they finally became best of friends.

I think movie is funny and interesting.

Zootopia

This week on the blog I am on Arts and Entertainment.  In this news category, you can review movies or books.  I’m going to review a movie.  I will be reviewing Zootopia.  It is a movie that came out this year.  It’s about a bunny named Judy Hopps who is a police officer in the  city of Zootopia.  Zootopia is a place where animals act like humans.  It’s not a real place though.  I better not spill the carrots. Get it!

I give this movie four stars out of five.
