Review : Youtube

YouTube  is a busy  site with lots  of  people  coming to it. It needs some time to load videos.  It has  a lot of inappropriate things on it. I do no recommend this to children under the age of 5.  I think an adult should watch and choose the videos for a 5 year-old.

I give this sight 4 out of 5 stars.****  out of *****

Taylor Swift Calls an Alpharetta Collage Student Her Hero

I read an article online that talked about how James O'Dwyer raised money for people in Alabama after a tornado hit there on April 27, 2011.  Mr. O'Dwyer started an organization called Magnolia Disaster Relief.  Somehow, Nickelodeon heard about him, and he won a HALO award.  He met Taylor Swift backstage here in Atlanta before one of her concerts.

When I read this article, it made me happy that one boy tried to overcome the sadness that many people had because they lost all that they had.  

More Things I Do

I'll also post things that will amuse you,surprise you, and make you happy,or sad. It might amaze you as well.

Book Review: "Helen Keller, From Tragedy to Triumph" by Katherine E. Wilkie

"Helen Keller, From Tragedy to Triumph" by Katherine E. Wilkie is a biography of Helen Keller.  The book begins when she was six years old, telling how she went from a healthy baby to being blind, deaf, and dumb.  The story then talks about how Helen learned sign language, and finally was able to communicate with the world.

I like this book because it shows how a young, blind, deaf girl became famous for what she did and how she worked around her problems.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Book Review: "Remember the Ladies" by Jeri Chase Ferris

"Remember the Ladies" by Jeri Chase Ferris is a story about Abigail Adams.  The story begins when Abigail Adams is a kid.  The book talks about her wild beginning and goes through her education.  Her father teaches her how to read in a time when women didn't read in general.  The book then covers how she meets John Adams, and what she does during the American Revolution.

I like this book.  I learned that life is a delicate thing that should be treasured.  I think Abigail Adams is a good role model for young girls.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
