Fantasy Stories




I am very pleased to see that you have all checked out fantasy stories from our classroom library. I hope you are enjoying them! Remember not to feel discouraged if you find them a bit hard! Keep on reading until the last page!
What do you think of Francis Bacon's quote on books?
"Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.~ Francis Bacon ~

Hello Miss Ale!!!
I am reading my third story. They are very difficult to understand so I read them more than one time.
I think that what Francis Bacon ment was that there are stories that we don't like but we have to read until it finished. We have to try and finish them wanting to and understanding it. But in some cases you read some parts because you don't want to keep on reading but if it is compulsary you have to do it. Live has a lot of obligations and we have to do them. When we read a book we have to pay attention, because if not we can't understan it, we fill like it but we don't. But in a conclusion it would be that reading is good for our writting and reading and some times we don't like it but we have to do it.

Hello miss Ale,
I think the stoties are very difficult but they were instresting.When you told us they were complicated I felt scared and thought I could not read those stories. I liked the way the writers expressed them selves.

Hi Miss Ale,
I think that the quote means that there are some books that aree good, very good, but we have to taste all the flavours of the excellent books, because they are irrepetible.
See you,

Hi Miss Ale,

As you know, I've read several of the stories, but 'Who goes down this Dark Road?' is deffinatly my faourite, followed by 'What the Cat told me.' Some of them are quite challenging, and it takes a whileto figure out the true meanign of the story.

I belive Francis Bacon ment that, there are many kinds of stories in the world, too many to count, but each is unique in its own way.

Hi Miss Ale.
I liked the fantasy stories we are reading. Today you forgot to tell us that we have to take another book put I didn´t forget and I´d took one.
The thing Francis Bacon ment was that there are stories that we don't like but we have to read until it finished.I didn´t like one story but I have to read it.
Bye Bye

I think all the fantasy stories that I read are great but hard to understand but at the end I understand the main Idea. For now I have read "The Amazing Flight of The Gump",the "hunters moon" that I didnt understand it atall.and I am going to read "The Wakening of The Kracken.

Hello Miss Ale
This are nice but difficult books. But even thoough there are intresting, mines where really hooking and I 1st checked one named "The Waking of the Kraken" I loved it!!! But the ending was strange..... Now I cheked one called "The Amazing Flight of the Gump" I would like to know what is a Gump that is what I will do now. I like alot sharing with my friends what we understood and that helps me. Plus I thought they were going to be harder, but I don´t say they where easy book!!!! oF CORSE YOU HAVE TO READ THEM MORE THAN ONE TIME IF NOT IT IS BASIC CHINNESE!AJJAJAJA

Hello Miss Ale,
I have finished reading a book called "The caves in the hill" by Elizabeth Goudge.
It was very interesting and exciting to read it, and even more because it had an open ending and it kept me thinking about it.
Anyway it wasn´t a simple vocabulary.

Hi Miss Ale
I agree with him.
It happened to me that a short book was very difficult and then I read another book but very long and it was very easy to understand.

Sorry I didn't do my weekly homework last week, I forgot...

Hi Miss Ale,
HI! As you know I am about to reead my 3rd book, even so my favourite is ``What the cat told me´´ It's the one I believe I recommend most to.
I think what Francis Bacon ment that are books of different kinds and that evry book will have to be read 'till the last page, in order to understand and to say: ``I loved this book!´´.
I will keep seeing posts!

Hello Miss Ale,
I read two books and I am going to start the third one. There are not so difficult as they seem. What Francis Bacon ment was that we need to read stories we really dont want to read. But usualy at the end we like the stories and go on reading stories on the same author. Thats what happens to me. Just like with Maria Elena Walsh, she is my idol, I read a story of her in school and started liking the way she thought about every little detail. When I convert myself in an author I want to be just like her. Her birthday passed a little time ago, she has 80 now!.
Keep on Posting!
See you in class!

Hi miss ale
I think that what Francis Bacon whantes to say is that some books can be really tasted (really good for you not to read it) and some others can be OK and other can be disgausting or much worst than OK.
lot of love...

HI!!!!!!
I belive that what he is saying is that some of us get a book and as we dont like the first part we decide to change it but he says that we have to finish it to see if we wreally hate itand that dont give up until the end
