It’s the big day! You’re about to hop on an airplane and travel to a new country. Curious Kiwi will keep you company on the journey. Unfortunately, Curious Kiwi forgot his book and he is worried that he’ll get bored on the long flight without anything to read. He asks you for some help…

Activity 1

Think about all of the books that you have read this year and recommend one for Curious Kiwi to read. On your blog list the title and author of the book and then provide a short description of it. What is the book about?

Out of all the books I've read I recommend Curious Kiwi to read which some of you already know The wonderful wizard of oz. The wonderful wizard of oz is about a young girl name Dorothy who some how ended up in the magical land of oz because of a terrifying cyclone. But can a wizard help her get back home. The author of this book is L. Frank Baum. You can also listen to this book in audio on youtube. Here is a link to the audio LINK. You can listen to every single chapter of The wonderful wizard of oz.

Activity 2
Read the following three reviews of books that are really popular right now in Canada. If you had to choose one for Curious Kiwi to read on the plane, which one would you choose? Post the name of the book that you would chose on your blog. Below the title explain why you would choose that book.

Book 1: Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Catching Fire book cover image.jpgAgainst all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create. Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
The Book that I chose was Book 2: Matilda by Roald Dahl. Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors. I chose this book because it kind of has a message to it, and that you can learn something about it. I think this message is like no matter what you do and how people treat you keep working hard. But the funny thing is I already watched the movie but I have not read the book. I recommend Curious Kiwi to read this book on the flight

C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\DoaWK image.jpgBook 3: Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly Truth Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be? Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth.”


  1. Hi Amelia,

    I'm so impressed with how you are reading into the message Roald Dahl puts into his writing.

    Keep up the great work!


  2. Kia ora Mark,

    Thanks for another comment. Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors so I decided to make his story into a message since I've already watched the movie.

    Thanks Amelia
