Ich habe "In einem tiefen, dunklen Wald" auf Deutsch gelesen

This fractured fairy tale is the German children's book author Paul Maar. He has won numerous awards. It was a fun read with entertaining graphics and part of the storyline was about conquering fear of monsters. Strong female characters, wry  humor, spoofs on traditional royalty roles, and crazy plot twists made me see why he is an award-winning author in Germany.

I played my clarinet to get practice for when school starts!!!

Instruments are not easy to play and I need all the practice I can get. I don't want to walk into school in September and have forgotten how to play my clarinet! I plan on practicing a little more in august too. I also plan on getting first chair so I will need to work super hard and control my emotions when I have to play a song (solo) for everyone in my band class to hear! :)
