Welcome to the first installment of "Margo's Musings". I just read CHECKED by Cynthia Kadohata (grades 4-6; Accelerated Reader 11 Points). Eleven year old Conor MacRae tells the reader about his dad, his dog, and his sport (hockey). The story moves quickly, especially when Conor talks about training for and playing hockey and his hopes to play with the NHL some day. I would enjoy hearing from Weyauwega school athletes and learning how the training and time involved with their sports are similar to or different from the book.
Visit the library if you want to check CHECKED out.
