Bạn đang xem: You can: a collection of brief talks on the most important topic in the world

The bird has to decide if it will try to lớn fly, but it was not sure if it wants to. The bird thought, "If I never forever endeavor" then I won"t ever learn. On one wing, he worries he might fail & on the other wing he thinks of how he may succeed. He worries that if he tries, he may get lost in the world. That makes him want to lớn stay in his nest where he"s safe.

I think this book would help other children lớn learn that trying new things can be scary, but sometimes when we try, we can find things that make us happy too. & this book will help others know that mistakes are okay và part of learning.

My favorite part is that the bird tried & learned that she could fly. I also liked that I read this book because it gave me a chance khổng lồ talk lớn mom about making mistakes và how I don"t like making them. Then I learned they are good and part of learning.

Boys và girls who are 3 lớn 8 years old would lượt thích this book because it teaches about trying a new thing & how it"s important khổng lồ get past being scared so you can learn new things.

I give the book 5 stars since I think it"s important for other children lớn learn about courage.

Flesh & Blood So CheapReview by Umar B., age 8, Central New Jersy Mensa


I liked this book. People who are interested in national disasters và US history as well as immigration will most probably be interested in reading this book.

Readers can gain knowledge of what it was lượt thích to work in thủ đô new york City in the early 1900s. One of the things that was especially interesting was that there were no safety laws at work. Also, there was a big contrast between the rich và the poor. Some people may not like this book because it is very depressing, but it is an important event in history lớn remember.

This book was very well written. It has black & white photos along with descriptions of the photos. These photos give us a better idea of what people"s lives were like. This book is suitable for 9-20 year olds.

I give this book 5 stars.

Galaxy Zach: Journey to JunoReview by Young Mensan Connor C., age 6, Boston Mensa


Journey to Juno is the second book of the Galaxy Zack series. It is just as good as the first one. It"s awesome!

Zack joins the Sprockets Academy Explorers Club at school. They fly on a special trip khổng lồ Juno, a new planet no one has ever visited. Zack gets paired up with Seth, the class bully, và that"s dreadful but Zack is excited when he finds a huge galaxy gemmite. A gemmite that large had not been found in 100 years! Kids will love this book!

Boys and girls will both like it. It"s an easy chapter book with pictures on every page. I love the illustrations. I think ages 6-8 would lượt thích this but younger kids would lượt thích the story being read to them.

My favorite parts are the galactic blast game (it is similar to lớn baseball except there are robots playing), recess at Zack"s school where everything is 3-D holographic images, the rainbow river in a crystal cave on Juno, and the galaxy gemmite that Zack finds on Juno. I also loved when a life-size holographic image of his Earth friend appears in Zack"s room because he calls him on a hyperphone. I give this book one hundred stars! There is a "to be continued" at the kết thúc so you have to lớn read the next book see what"s in store. I can"t wait to find out what happens!!!

Dodie Smith"s novel I Capture the Castle is a journey through the mind of a young writer as she attempts khổng lồ chronicle her daily life. Seventeen-year-old cassandra stavrou Mortmain has recently learned to lớn speed-write, và she decides khổng lồ work on her writing skills by describing the actions và conversations of those around her.

Cassandra lives in a fourteenth-century English castle with an interesting cast of characters: her beautiful older sister, Rose; her rather unsociable author father và his second wife, artist-model Topaz; Stephen, the garden boy; a cat & a bull terrier; và sometimes her brother Thomas when he is trang chủ from school. One fateful day they make the acquaintance of the cotton family, including the two sons, và a website of tangled relationships ensues.

Over the course of the novel, stavrou undergoes a definite transformation from child to lớn mature young adult, even though it"s only over the course of several months. I love that I could see into her mindset & read exactly what she was feeling when she thought out situations. Her thoughts flowed well and moved the book along very quickly.

Cassandra"s narrative voice is wonderful. She is serious at times, but also very witty, which makes for an engaging read. It feels absolutely real, as though I"m reading someone"s actual journal. Sometimes I forget that I am reading a story & not a real-life account. Her emotions và the dialogue are so genuine, & they are spot-on for a seventeen-year-old girl in her situation.

Cassandra has many wonderful insights on life, on topics ranging from writing to lớn faith lớn matters of the heart. I personally have had some of the same thoughts as Cassandra, except Ms. Smith was able khổng lồ put them into words.

Capture the Castle should be essential reading for aspiring writers, those looking for historical fiction or romance, or anyone who loves reading amazing classic books. Dodie Smith is an exceptional writer, and I Capture the Castle is a book that will never become obsolete.

Frankenstein"s CatReview by Zander H., age 12, Mid-America Mensa


I appreciated Frankenstein"s cát for its fascinating explanation about the often baffling subject of bioengineering & its sister sciences. Emily Anthes explains the many sides of today"s modern technology, such as gene modification, cloning, pharmaceutical products (from the farm), prosthesis, animal tag and tracking và gene cryogenics. This book provides a well-rounded summary of these complicated sciences without being boring or simply factual. Her real world examples take us on a journey from the farm, to the pet store & then from the pharmacy to lớn the frozen arc.

Have you ever wondered if the neighborhood cat is spying on you? Read about Operation Acoustic Kitty & find out if this feline fantasy fiction or fact. Vày you think bugs are creepy? What about a zombified cyborg beetle? Is Fido so special that you want two of him? Money can buy you an almost exact copy of your pooch BUT don"t expect the same personality. Emily Anthes makes you crave more information. She makes you want khổng lồ know the future of Earth"s flora and fauna, as well as humanity itself.

I would highly recommend this book khổng lồ anyone who desires a guide to the future of biological science & technology. Frankenstein"s cat is best read by the light of a glow-in-the-dark fish, while cuddling your favorite cloned dog and drinking a glass of genetically modified milk.

About MarsupialsReview by Connor C., age 6, Boston Mensa

About Marsupials is the title so the book is about...marsupials, of course. It"s non-fiction. I really think everyone would lượt thích the book. I think someone who likes animals would especially lượt thích to read it.

The glossary of facts in the back of About Marsupials is the most useful part. I thought the most interesting parts were that some marsupials have their pouch at their back legs & one marsupial, the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby, is very small but can jump 13 feet wide!

Kids in the 4-8 age range would like this book. Even though it"s not a story book, 4 year olds would like the few words on each page and they would love the beautiful pictures. But older kids would lượt thích it because of all the facts in the back of the book. There"s a lot of information for each animal. I think boys & girls (and parents) would enjoy reading it. This book is very interesting. I give it 4 stars.

An uncolored projection could be used in many ways. We could use it for population concentration, highways, land elevation, & so many other things!

For example, we could make a topographic map of the U.S., which shows land elevation. We could make it a colorful map that shows the amount of pollution in different areas, or it could be a population map, or it could even be a maps that shows the 50 states, their capitals và borders! Our last step in this amazing excursion is the near future, where we see some hypothetical solutions as to lớn what maps will be used for. Currently, we are working on better virtual map technology.

Now, scientists have been able to lớn put maps on phones. Back in the early 1900s, people had to lớn lug a lot of maps around to find your way from place to lớn place, or just keep asking for directions. Now, all the information is on a phone or global positioning system (GPS). It is amazing how much maps have changed technology & the world in this century.
