  3. Dear Taylor S.,

    I can't believe that you made the present! I think that you used the same tree as me, but you fancied it up. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Dear Class, Wow! What a fantastic job you did. Not only did you read some very interesting books, you conveyed the highlights so well in your dioramas and descriptions. I almost feel like I read a part of each of your books with you. Keep up the great work!

    My grandpa does a funny head movement to impersonate King Tut. It reminds me about your book.
