The short story "Too many Tamales" by Gary Soto describes the story of a girl named Maria who didn 't ask her mom where a ring is, so she had to rip open the tamales because she thought that the ring was inside one of the tamales, and remake them. Both stories tell that kids and adults should not keep secrets and tell the truth.
In this week’s Ted Talk, Alison Gopnik focused on the thought process of babies. In the past, people believed that babies could not perceive another individual’s thoughts, however with the passage of time these believes have changed. To help us understand what babies could be thinking and if they acknowledge other people’s thoughts, Gopnik explained how she and one of her students tested this idea by using broccoli and crackers. The student gave 15 and 18 month-old babies two bowls, one with broccoli and the other one with crackers, and the babies showed more preference for the one with the crackers. The student, on the other hand, tasted the food from both bowls in front of the babies and acted as if she loved the broccoli and dislike the

I was the only girl and the eldest of 3. Any bid for attention was usurped by my middle brother who had to be the centre of attention, no matter what the cost. Knowledge became my currency. At the age of 4 my favourite word was obstreperous and I would happily inform people in supermarkets that ‘my brother was very obstreperous and he had my mammy’s heart broken.’ In turn I would get a smile and if lucky a lollipop.

Hallucinations by Oliver Sacks I chose this book because I find hallucinations to be interesting. When I was younger I used to see floating shapes, I called them “floaties.” One of the times I remember seeing them was once on Easter morning, I saw a bunch of tiny green “peas” coming out of the foot rest on our couch, like a waterfall.
