Missy Barrett’s Year In Review (The Year I Turned 8): Just because you’re a kid doesn’t mean that you can’t be a junior detective, an occasional Chief of Staff, a seeker of answers, or even a blogger. In Missy Barrett’s case, she’s done all those jobs, and more. With her first year of blogging under her belt, Missy decided to publish those entries in one book, complete with 15 pieces of original artwork to illustrate some of them. Whether she’s talking about easy-to-make decorations for those festive celebrations or wondering how footprints got on the moon before astronauts did, you know that what you read is going to get you thinking about adventures of your own. Join in the fun, and as Missy says, “You never know when a mystery is going to break out.”
Missy Barrett’s Year In Review (The Year I Turned 9): With a second year of blogging under her belt, Missy Barrett covered all kinds of things in 2014. She wrote about solar systems, stars, planets, choirs, french toast, french fries, turkeys, penguins, her cats Sali Dali Cat and Oreo Speedwagon, and a whole lot more! Sometimes she just couldn’t wait for Wednesday to come around. With her mom’s permission (her mom has the password for Missy’s blog) she sometimes sneaked a blog entry in between two Wednesdays. Missy even added some black and white photographs as well as a picture by Josh (one of Missy’s two brothers) into this book! And just like last year, she included some of her own artwork and left lots of place for readers to add their own creative touches.
