We're learning there are many genres of books and often they're related to one another. We've learned that if we like fantasy stories, we might like fairy tales. If we like horror, we might like mystery too. Today we cut out pictures of books we KNOW we like, then we cut out pictures of books we think we MIGHT like to read based on what we already have read.

Landon says you should space between your words because "they help you make the words better. If there's no spaces, you might say the wrong word."
The page on the left is Landon's first page with no spaces. The page on the right is his most recent work with much better spacing between his words.
