Mar 20, 2015 We had good conversations about the books. Children in attendance were all boys and all 4th grade and up, so instead of focusing on their drawings, we listened to their thoughts about the books! Everyone agreed that reading Finding Zasha, the prequel to Saving Zasha would be a good idea! Parents agreed that learning about history is enhanced through stories about the era!! We also discussed the new books. READ MORE
