Okay, so book #2 was a quick read for me, but I loved it. The Strange Case of Origami Yoda was great. One student in the class created, on his own, an origami Yoda finger puppet who starts giving advice. Pretty soon, everyone wants Yoda’s advice. But one kid in particular isn’t sure if he should take the advice, because if Yoda is wrong, he’ll be humiliated. So, he sets about to create a case file and study the history of the origami Yoda to see if he’s for real. If you liked Diary of a Wimpy Kid or have any interest in Star Wars, I think you’ll like this. The book even includes instructions on how to make your own Origami Yoda.
So, now on to book #3. Since I finished Yoda early on Sunday morning, I took advantage of my library system’s downloadable ebooks to get a new book for my Nook. I chose one called The Invisible Gorilla. It’s all about what we don’t see; what our mind misses even if we think we’re paying attention. They have a cool website with examples of their experiments. Try them out here. You’ll be surprised by what you don’t see.
