I found this little entrepreneur on Craigslist advertising for children around her own age to contribute book reviews on children's books. Unlike a lot of the writing jobs for adults that are non paying, this little girl is actually paying per post. The following review made me laugh, but I love the spirit of this project. Kudos to the one who started this and to the children who are writing for her!
"I enjoyed reading this book a lot ….
The only thing that was wrong with the book is it is sort
of hard to understand where and what is going on.
It is really confusing, but this is defininetally
a page turner. Its an awesome mystery.
With an ending that is a SHOCKER!! enjoy"

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
