I just completed my second book with my ePal, Juliana! We read In Their Own Words: Lewis and Clark. I am very impressed how eagerly and quickly Juliana chose another book soon after Jake Drake. She seems to be very intelligent and a great reader.
I enjoyed Lewis and Clark. We could not have chosen a better time to read it! It was neat to read about what happened during the time that Jefferson was president, especially now that we have a new president.
I could even relate to Lewis and Clark. One of the best ideas that I think could be learned from the book is teamwork. It is so important to make sure that I work well with others so that I can accomplish my goals. I work with several different groups of people in teams when I volunteer and do community service. As a result, my "teams" have been able to help a lot of children, teens and soldiers.
In the words of a Shoshone warrior from the book, "ah-hi-e, ah-hi-e," which means, "I am much pleased". Get involved - it's easy and fun with In2Books.
