Q. What do you enjoy learning at Christ Church School?
A. Social studies and math because I learn how to do something new every day.
Q. Do you have a favorite Magic Treehouse book?
A. Civil War on Saturday, I haven’t read it yet, it just looks interesting. My first one was Mummies in the Morning, my second one was Evacuation Under the Volcano. The volcano one might be the most interesting because I like to learn about volcanos.
