September with Karori BookSeekers

With our topic this month of Science we played a game about statistics. Different coloured discs were handed around and for each colour we had to name a favourite place, or¬†game, or hobby, or book, or “if you could change your name, what would you choose”. Then we looked at the number of people who voted for those things. London was the fav place to go, Monopoly the fav game, fav hobbies were Reading, Drawing, Scouts and Sports, other names we would like to have were Amanda, Alex, Hazel and James, and the fav books were “most things” by Jacqueline Wilson and Skullduggery Pleasant.

Our new members, Emma and Isabella wrote these reviews:

“All my life I’ll think of you, I promise I will. I won’t ever forget you.” Bertie rescues an orphaned white lion cub from the African veldt. Bertie and the lion cub were best friends till Bertie is sent to boarding school. Bertie never forgets the lion. Bertie grows up and goes to war. Then when he is older he finds the lion again. This is a great book and I recommend it for 7 yrs and up. (My dad liked it too)

When Arthur and Lucy are sent to stay with their uncle at the seaside, Tumtum and Nutmeg decide to go along and keep an eye on them. But then the mice stumble upon an abandoned dolls house and a mysterious treasure map and all sorts of adventures unfold. It’s a good book because it has lots of bits where you just want to read more. It’s a very exciting book and I would recommend it to anyone.
