Holly the Eco Warrior

'That's so cool', said Grace. 'You're living in a tree - and you're fighting to save it. You're brilliant, Holly! You're an eco warrior!' Holly smiled. She didn't feel alone any more.

This story is about a girl, (Holly) who tries to protect nature, environment. One day, her father suggested that he cut the tree which is in her family's garden to build her father's new office. She rejected it strongly, because she liked the tree.

Her family tries to persuade her anyway, but  will is very strong...

What are the odds?

Do you understand when the water report says there is a 60 % chance of rain? Then you inderstand a little bit about odds.(p.6)

Did you know that you have a 1 in 10,000 chance of getting hit by lighting? Or that you have a 1 in 175,711,536 chance of winning the Mega Millions lottery? You have a much better chance of being born with wlwvwn fingers or eleven toes - That's 1 in 500.

The chance, or probability, that something will or won't happen is called "the odds."
Many different things can determine the odds. For example, if you buy 100 lottery tickets, your chances of winning the lottery are better than if you buy one ticket.

All About Desert Life 🦎

A desert is a dry place that has less than 25 centimeters of rain every year. Some deserts have no rain for months or years. Some deserts have sand, but others have stones or rocks. Some deserts are in thr mountains.(p.4)

Deserts are very dry places, but plants can still grow there. Desert plants collect and use water in special ways. The plants have strange looks compared to other normal plants. There are about 1,200 different types of plant in the Sahara Desert. I didn't know Dsert plants but cactus until reading this book, so I was surprised st this number.

All about Ocean Life 🐠

A lot of Earth is covered by saltwater oceans. The oceans are home to many tyoes of life, from the smallest plants to the biggest whales. (p.3)

This book's content is mainly about mammals live in the oceans. I got interested in Coral Reeds and small fish called cleaner wrasse, so I'm writing a little bit about them.Corals are small animals that make hard covers around themselves. Rhe covers are many different shapes and colors. Coral reefs are places where lots of corals live togetger. Cleaner wrasse work hard on coral reefs. They eat the little plants and animals that live on big fish. Big fish don't eat the cleaner wrasse. They open their mouths so the wrasse can clean inside.

Incredible Earth

Did you know that there are mountains and valleys under the ocean? Some of these mountains are bigger than the biggest mountains on land. In the deepest parts of the ocean, the water is 10 kilometers deep.(p.6)

If you read this book, you can know incredible places on Earth and how they were made. The most impressive thing in this book was Pammukkale Cliffs, Turkey(The picture). These white cliffs look like they are made of ice, but they are really made of rock. Hot water came out of the ground and poured down the mountain. Then minerals in the water made these incredible cliffs.

I was surprised to know that these were created by nature not human. I want to visit this place once in my life.

This book introduces new fruit plants, fruit and animals, and how to eat fruit with color picrures. I have never eaten lychees and dragon fruit which appear in this book and I can't image what taste they are. I want to try them someday...
