Keeping In Touch

I am not going to say anything. I am only going to quote what a person named Vasanth Krishna on Facebook wrote in his timeline along with some pictures.

A Post I liked

Caroline, a blogger who writes posts on her blog Children’s Books & More recently wrote a book review of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. I found it an interesting read and thought that I should share it.
