Reading Challenge #2

Hi St. Matthew's, 

Here is the second of the reading challenges. Last week, 'Oak National Academy' launched their 'Virtual Library' at the weekend where they will be releasing one E-book each week. 

This weeks E-book is 'The Girl Who Stole an Elephant' by Nizrana Farook. This is an author that I have not heard of before so I am excited to see what her book has in store. Click on the link below to access the E-book. You can also access the book as audio if you would like to listen to the story instead.
