The Story of Boxing Legend Joe Louis

Written By Matt de la peña
Illistrated by Kaider Nelson

I think the theme of this book is Achievement because Joe completed his lifetime dream of being a Boxer. Joe's mom set Joe to go to his music lessons, but instead he snuck into the boxing camp to get better education on boxing to achieve his goal to be a world class boxer. Another reason that the theme is achievement is that Joe came back day after day and got hurt a lot, so he watched older people fight to achieve there goals just like Joe. Another reason that the theme is achievement is that when Joe got to his first real fight he got punched by a quick fist. In the second round, Joe got the first strike and won. Everyone was cheering and Joe completed his lifetime goal. I think this book taught me that everyone can achieve there goals.

Edward Hopper

By:Robert Burleigh

I think the theme in the book Edward Hopper is achievement because when he was a little boy he wanted to be a painter and when he grew up he became famous painter. He was a little boy he wanted to be a painter when he grew up he went to New York and studied illustrations so he would be better at painting. After he went to New York he came to pairs to paint buildings because he thought he was good enough to do it and after he returned to New York and got a job. There was one big problem no one would by his paintings but he never gave up and keep on painting. This book makes me think I can do anything even if people make fun of it.
