In this book there is a person named Queen Vernita. She goes to a place called the Islands of Enchantment. In this place she has a different person come and visit her every month for a whole year. Every time someone visits they learn something every day of the week.
My favorite part was when David came to visit her and they learned about sharks. I learned that there are 440 species of sharks in the ocean. I learned that the great white shark gets to be 12 to 16 feet long. I also like learning about eels. They can get to be 10 feet long. They can weigh 100 pounds! That is a big eel!
“Queen Vernita Visits the Islands of Enchantment” is good if you want to learn about things in the ocean. I learned a lot of new things by reading it. I liked how they had something new to learn every day of the week.
