An introduction...

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to create our own biography, a written account of another person's life,  on the life of Jacques Cousteau; a man who became famous for his under the sea explorations. This week we are going to read two books about his life, both true stories. Both books are beautifully written and illustrated.  Today we start with 'Manfish' by Jennifer Berne. I hope you enjoy it. *** My apologies that as I turned my screen around some of this is sideways. I include an alternative if you prefer!surprise
Please follow the link below to our St. Paul’s Video page, go to Galileo and listen to me reading the story. 
Oh my goodness! Because I turned my screen around half of my video is sideways!!! I have included an alternative retelling if you would like to see it the correct way around!
