Top of the Heap!
Monday's Riddle was a spirited rhyme, and Lizzy's review of Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell was a lesson about survival. Friday, we have something exciting hiding up our sleeves, and Saturday, we always enjoy hearing your thoughts on The DMS Wants to Know. Sunday, get out your sunglasses, because we are turning up the brightness! Today, we want to tell you about two fictional spirits that really won us over : ) ~ F
This week's top of the heap: Amazing character spirits ♨
Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu. Hazel sticks by her friend, Jack, when he is lost and embraces a harrowing journey in order to lead him back to saftey. Hazel is a good friend and a guiding force. Even in the face of adversity, her spirit shines bright. So, here's to you Hazel. Thank you for reminding me how special my friends really are! ~ F
Wonder by R.J. Palacio. Auggie watches the world from behind his face, just like all of us- but Auggie's face is extraordinary. It's different, and he stands out. Through his amazing spirit, a simple understanding arises. He is exactly the same on the inside as everyone else, and he feels just the same when he is hurt. Auggie's small spirit is as big as can be! So, here's to Auggie! Keep being your-wonderful-self! ~ L
