After finishing reading Paddle to the Sea, we watched a film by Bill Mason, based on the book. Afterwards we discussed similarities and differences between the book and film. They understood that it would be too long to include all of Paddles adventure in a movie, because it would be too long, but there were scenes from the book that they thought should have been included. They also recognized that there were scenes in the movie that were not in the book. Everyone was disappointed in the ending of the film because it did not tell that Paddle did finally make it to the sea.
We are currently reading a book by Sara Pennypacker. The book, Clementine , is the first in a series about, you guessed it, a girl named Clementine. Clementine gets in some unusual predicaments but always as a result of the best intentions.
