  1. The book I am reading is Life as we knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer. The person who I admire and respect is Matt. He is caring, kind, and strong. Matt would do anything so that the family can live well. Since the moon was hit and got closer there have been many bad things happening with nature. While the mom is worried about the other family members that aren’t as close Matt would risk of getting hurt or not eating for a bit so he can make sure the others eat. He tries not to worry about the other family members a lot because he has a lot on his hands. What I would take away from this book is to be very strong and think that we can live through something bad and take care and help as much people as I can.

  2. Awhile ago I’ve been done reading the book, “The story of land and sea” by Kathy Simpson Smith and since then I have realized that I actually respect and admire the little 10 year old girl, Tabitha. I respect and admire her because even though she appeared a little bit in the book and died so early, she had me wondering what would she do next (unpredictable.) She was mysterious in a way that no child could reflect the encounter she had with her father, John when learning about her mother, Helen. I felt that because she had died too early in the book, the author had wrote so little about her but what I had learned was that her innocence tone the book into a more deeper meaning which is, to forgive doesn’t take forgetting to, she taught me in so little time that life and death is not easy getting by nor does understanding why something happens but again that something happens for a reason. Character traits I would like to develop in myself are supportive, enthusiasm, and peaceful because those features that remind me of freedom and the kind spirit of Tabitha who never lost hope in her father and the world.

  3. The person who I respect in my book David and Goliath is the small man yet smartest many underestimated him. He knew what he was capable of so he knew many people were making fun of him but he didn’t let that bother him. He battled for his team and even if he was small, he was mighty. It makes me happy that people should know who they are. Its good that you don’t get on your nerves with people who are not worth it.

    • I respect David because he wins and he turns up to be the bigger man in the end. But in the beginning most people including me would be one Goliath’s side. You expect the team that looks more athletic to win in a basketball game. In truth though it’s the person with the determination in my opinion. We judge by what we can see, what’s on the outside. When we should be trying to figure out what’s in the inside, because that is what really makes the person who they are.

  4. The book “World War 1″by John Perritano is about the dramatic war that the United States participated in to bring in peace to other European countries that fought in the war.It talks about how it first started which was in June 28,1914.Later ended in November 11,1918. It all started when a man from Serbia killed the ruler of the Austria-Hungary country which made a huge effect into the war.The person I admire is Archduke Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary because when he got assassinated a war was released and that proves that he was a powerful Man in Europe.When he was killed Germany called war on Serbia which also means that he was respected in many countries and by one of the most powerful countries in all of Europe Germany.

  5. “Bombing Nazi Germany” by Wayne Vansant is a book about the United States going to war during WW2 fighting Germany with airplanes dropping bombs trying to destroy many of the ammunition companies they create. They did this because they wanted to end the War wanting to beat Germany to win for the second time.I admire how the United States general teamed up with Great Britain to bring Germany down.He teamed up with them so that they could dominate them using airplanes.I would like to have his leadership trait in thinking of good plans so that they win the war.

  9. I respect and admire the main character in my book that I’m done reading “the best school year ever the main character’s name is Beth .See the reason I admire her is that she’s tough knowing what to do and how of getting out of a problem.With kids like the herdmans in her school I can under why you’d need to be able to prepared for things like the herdmans a group of evil kids. That’s All I’m going to say about them so the reason I admire her is one trait her trait to bare things and being able to think on her feet even if it’s not about the herdman kids.This is one trait I’d like to have not being a very patient person myself I wish I’d be able to fix something in a fast manner.

  10. In the book I finished reading called “Three times lucky”I admire the main character Mo.Really if you think about it a story is build up by three things it’s plot it’s setting and characters .which is what every good book should have which if see the people we most admire in a book .The main character is sometimes the best reason we read a book anyway.Mo has a few traits I have and some I wish I had and some I already did have .But the main is hope which is has that have to be a aways admiring trait .This is because it shows they ,the main character can dream and wish as Mo does to find her upstream mother.
