Operation Read

Filed in Uncategorized


I choose to participate in the Operation Read program. To participate I had to read all the books nominated for the Golden Sower award (in the intermediate list). The books I read where:

Malcom at Midnight by W. H. Beck
A Diamond in the Desert by Kathryn Fitzmaurice
Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George
The Adventures of Beanboy by Lisa Harkrader
Eight Keys by Suzanne LaFleur
The Underdogs by Mike Lupica
Kindred Souls by Patricia MacLachlan
The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
Jake and Lilly by Jerry Spinelli
Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage

My favorite books were Three Times Lucky, The False Prince and Tuesdays at the Castle. In Tuesdays at the Castle a toy lion turns into a live griffon that saves the princess. I like The False Prince, because one of the “false” princes who was trying to pretend to be the prince ended up being the actual princess, I didn’t see that coming at all. In Three Times Lucky, Mo found out who was the murderer and also found out the Colonel was a lawyer. It was a great mystery!

Operation Read is a competition where schools get together (grade 4-6) and have fun answering questions about the books they have read. This helps influence the love of reading. Our group made it into the finals, we missed only 2 questions during the first stage. During the finals we missed 4. We ended up not placing, but we had a good time anyways.


My group: Morgan Orme, Christine V., Springfield M., and Sydnee W. and myself
