For this month’s Chai Reading, we had to pick a western/pioneer book. My book was called Save Queen of Sheba. It was written by Louise Moeri. It is about 2 siblings, King David and Queen of Sheba, who must travel across the frontier to find their parents. Then, we had to create a newspaper relating to the time. I hope you like the Oregon Gazette!
In our Mirrors and Windows: Connecting to Literature book, there is a story called “The Sandcastle”, page 98. It is about a future time, where global warming finally conquered us. They have to wear a type of morph suit to protect them self from the sun’s fatal UV rays. We were asked to define the connection between our story and Hurricane Sandy. The way it is connected is maybe some storm, like Sandy, caused the sun’s rays to be like that. Or because they both have to do with global warming. More storms, like Sandy, will come because of global warming, and we need to be prepared.
