Giants Baseball Game

I took the ferry to ATT Park with my family and watched the Giants play the San Diego Padres. The Giants beat them in a close game by coming back in the 8th inning. The final score was 8-13. It was an amazing day!

I got to bring my relatives from out of town and it was fun to show them around the park!!!!!

Title of Book or Name of Activity
The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick
3 Sentences
This book is a real page-turner! I love Brian Selznick's way of telling the story both by word and by illustration. I love that while reading Hugo Cabret the author allows the reader to make their own pictures but when you see pictures Selznick allows the reader to imagine what the character is thinking or saying. This book is great for all ages, adults can relate to the setting, but kids can relate to the imagination and mischief Hugo has. Everyone should read this book and maybe even see the movie, too.
Best/Worst Thing
I loved the adventure in the story. I also, liked how the book is part word part drawing.
