Chicks

To start I would like to apologize for not posting in a long, long, long,[you get the point] long time.
------------------------------------------------------------
For one of my brothers birthdays, he asked for an incubator [a machine which hatches eggs]   my sister and I thought he was crazy why would want a incubator for his birthday? we already had chickens that were laying eggs so we put the eggs into the incubator. After 21 prolong days a chick!! after experimenting several times we were able to hatch quail, chickens, bantams, and were working on hatching peacocks and guineas. when they hatch I will post a picture off them

                   chow for now

      The top four books someone going into 4th grade should read this summer - by a fourth grader

       
      Hi! I'm Andrew, a nine year old boy here to tell you what books I think all fourth graders should read!

      1. Let's start with The Mysterious Benedict Society, by Trenton Lee Stewart.
      It's a series! TMBS is the first one.
      Why you'll like this book:
      It's filled with action, adventure, and fun. The book focuses on four kids; Kate, Reynie, Sticky, and Constance, who help a man named Mr. Benedict investigate a secret school ran by the terrible...MR. CURTAIN. Mr. Curtain is trying to hypnotize everyone into thinking nothing is happening while the U.S is in its darkest hour. Why is it in its darkest hour? Read the book!
       
      2. The next book is Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain.
       
       

      This is a can't-put-down- book like the one above.
      Also this is one of my favorite books because it is classic and yet also exciting.
      It is about a boy named Tom Sawyer who has all kinds of amazing adventures. He runs away to an island where he and his friends become pirates,  attends his own funeral, solves a murder, and is trapped in a cave!
       

      3. The A to Z Mystery series by Ron Roy


      The books are about two boys named Dink and Josh, and a girl named Ruth Rose. They solve mysteries in cool places and their mysteries could actually happen in real life!

      4.
      Charlotte's Web
      Why you'll like this book:
      This is an adventure packed book about  Charlotte, a spider & Wilber a pig.

      They become friends and Charlotte helps Wilber live when he is doomed for bacon!! It has funny characters, and it will make you laugh and cry.

      Magic Tree House Books






      I love the Magic Tree House Books.  The Twister on Tuesday is one of  my favorites. The books are about a boy named Jack and his little sister, Annie. Together they have magical adventures in a time-travelling tree house.  They have been all over the world. Morgan Le Fay is a magical lady from Camelot who helps them get books. There's also the Merlin Missions books. They continue where the 27 Magic Tree House books end. There are 24 Merlin Missions so far. My big sister Laura Ashley started collecting the books when she was my age. Now I have her's and mine, which is almost all the books. I want to get the other books I don't have for my birthday.  If you're not into magic don't worry, the books are mainly about history while Jack and Annie travel.                                  
      Jack and Annie

      If you have read a Magic Tree House book, then comment and tell me all about it!!!
