when his Jewish parents place young Felix in an orphanage in war-torn Poland, they tell him that they must leave to fix their book business. Felix knows they will return. Curiously, one morning men in dark suits storm the orphanage and start burning books—these must be the people his parents have fled from. Others call these men Nazis; Felix doesn’t understand. Determined to be reunited with his family and to save more books from being burned, Felix runs away. But during his travels he sees even more horrors: People are beaten, starved and shot. All because of books? Felix’s misconceptions are heartbreaking, and readers will wince as he slowly and painfully gets closer to the truth. Packed with plenty of sadness, Felix’s story is also touched with hope. He meets a kind-hearted man, loosely based on the real-life Janusz Korczak. A resonant shot to the heart—Gleitzman delivers a sharp sense of what it must have been like to be a child during the Holocaust, forced to grow up far too quickly.
Scrolling through the channels on the TV, i finally found channel 7. I clicked on the channel, we seemed to be on the television! “Surely that can’t be us!” I yelled. I was so confused when I was calling down my dad. He had come into the room and had a confused look on his face. He looked at me as to say “What do you want?” I looked over at the TV. He nodded as to know why we were on there. He just walked off and I was in shock. When I was at school, I told my friends.
One day I went to a circus in California. and to my surprise, I stared at a yellow gorilla who was building with red concrete bricks which were cool, but I dropped my popcorn at the right time. When I went to pick it up I see a red brick fly above my face then everyone started running and I ran also. We escaped the gorilla but she leaped out of the circus and a man was riding the gorilla and he said: “Don’t worry the pretty yellow gorilla won’t bite,”. After that day I never went to another circus.

The Babylonians had the knowledge or a thing called the mathematical model to create calendars.
The Babylonians could predict Astronomical Phenomenon.
The Mayan made the long count calendar and had the count of base 20.
1. My first question is that why did he think that the Earth was in the middle of the universe?
2. My second question is that why didn’t the Mayan not use base 10? Was it not created then?
My Insight is that a lot of Ancient People like the Babylonians and the Mayan studied the stars for so long and some of us continue to study the stars and find the patterns of what the stars do, also the calendar has also been here for a long time.
A few weeks ago, I was going to a camp that was pretty cool. The vibe was really odd and really scary. It reminded me of a time when I was younger when I was going to preschool. Back then, my preschool was very woodsy and outdoorsy and just a fun relaxing place to go to preschool. For whatever reason, I felt like I was back in preschool. Then, I started to hate the camp, and all I wanted to do was leave and get out of that place. I got out of that place and never ever went back.
