Week 8 #PictYourBooks Challenge

Today is Veterans Day. Today was originally known as Armistice Day to mark the end of World War I in 1918, but it was officially changed in 1954 to Veterans Day. Today is the day we recognize and honor all people who have served in the United States Armed Forces - the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

Our veterans have bravely served our country, and sometimes people call veterans heroes. I agree. My dad is a veteran, and I consider him a hero, especially as I learn more and more about everything he did while in the army. I'm sure many of you also know people who are veterans, whether they are family, friends, or neighbors.

So this week our #PictYourBooks challenge is about heroes. Even though my introduction is about Veterans Day and how veterans can be considered heroes, the books you choose for this week can have any kind of hero. (But I'll be impressed if you can share books with veterans!)


Challenge #8: Share a book with a hero.


You have one week to submit your answer. Answers can be submitted three ways. Snap a picture of any book that answers the challenge and:
Please include the week number with your picture. You may also include who the image is from, like a teacher's name, and a description of how the book answers the challenge. Writing information on a sticky note and including it in the picture works great!

Something surprised me this weekend, and to make a long story short, I thought surprises might be a great subject for a #PictYourBooks challenge. 

Sometimes events happen that surprise the characters. Sometimes we, as readers, get surprised by what characters say or do. So here's your next challenge:
