Book Written by R.J Palacio.

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.   Don’t judge a boy by his face.

“My name is August. I won’t describe what i look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.”

August, is a ten a year old boy. He does normal/ordinary things that other ten year old do. He rides a bike, he eats ice cream, he has a XBOX. Basically, he’s a normal kid like us. But there’s something that’s not at all ordinary about him:

Book Review: The One And Only Ivan (An Animal’s Courageous Fight for Freedom)

Ivan Book Cover-001

Book by: Katherine Applegate. Published On: January 17 2012

It’s never to late to be what you might have been.

-George Eliot

Animals are like humans. They deserve a life like ours.They don’t need a house, a laptop, a phone. They just like to live in the wild. Eat fruits, sleep on grass. Like Gorillas, they swing from one tree to another. They’re so in-tune with nature. They are not meant to be sitting in one room and watching TV. They’re more active than we are. Living in a human world is not for them. So why do humans need to capture them and make them perform in a circus (or something similar)? Entertainment? Do we not have so many other means to entertain ourselves?

Book Review- The Railway Children

DSC04041-002

Written by E. Nesbit Armanda, 1988. Book Originally Published In 1906. 207 pages.

Boy, was i glad to get a glimpse into the life of these three lovable, courageous, characters that lived in this book a hundred years back! Yes, that’s when this book was written. And as I was reading it – page after page, I was yearning to experience a life like theirs – living near the railways, house set in the middle of country fields, where flowers bloom, where they can meet people of all ages, talk with them without fearing. And as i read it, i have started experiencing what these characters did, too.

The story felt so realistic and alive that I felt like I was with them! And, i’d love to be a part of those adventures these children have done. There enthusiasm is catching, they’re funny! And many times, they mean to do something else, and get stuck in a marvelous adventure! Going into tunnels, saving a boy with a broken leg, saving a baby from fire!

Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs – Movie Review

I recently saw the movies Ice Age 2 as well as 3. I liked 3 more than 2 because it was more adventurous. I’ll share my views about Ice Age 3.

I liked all the characters but the character I liked best was Manny – the Father Mammoth and Ellie – the mother Mammoth. They were very cute and funny. I loved their baby – Peaches – a lot. She had such big eyes and was so small and cute.

The kids’ playground was a very good idea and a very good creation. Ellie liked it very much. It had a wooden slide and small pieces of ice used as decorations.

Sid the sloth was really funny to look at. His teeth were cartoonish – protruding out. He also had a funny voice and a weird way to talk. His eyes were misplaced – somewhere near his ears!
