BC: Reflection of the Assignment In this project it was fairly difficult and easy at the same time. The easier parts to this project were uploading the photos. The harder parts of this project were setting up each and every detail for each page, such as having to set up each line of all of the poems, and the changing of fonts and color of size of the words and pictures. In the novel that I chose to read "Red Kayak", by Priscilla Cummings was very interesting in my opinion. i really enjoyed my novel because i enjoy reading adventure books because it keeps me focused on the book that I enjoy reading that is fun and interesting to read on my behalf. I would definitley recommend this novel choice to any one who enjoys reading adventure or action type novels.
