Fun Books

Boss of the Plains By Laurie Carlson, illustrated by Holly Meade
Great story and pictures about John Stetson and how he came to invent the cowboy hat.

Sky Boys by Deborah Hopkinson & James E. Ransome
This book was so interesting- lots of facts about how the empire state building was built.....the boys had to make their own:
