Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) Classic Nickelodeon-

description

OK, so it really isn't a current channel. But my kids have recently discovered a lot of these shows on Netflix so I was feeling a bit retro this month.

Duration: Month of December
Goal: Read 1 book for each of the 7 shows. Be sure to let us know which of the 3 options you chose.

1. You Can't do that on Television- Read a book that is split into segments; or is YA, or has a really gross character.

2. Rugrats- Read a book where a baby is a key plot point; or is about a group of friends; or with a character with absentee parents.

3. Doug- Read a book where the main character has a dog; or where there is love of a superhero, or where the guy tries but doesn't get the girl.

4. Hey Arnold!- Read a book based on an urban legend; or has a bully; or set in a large city.

5. Ren & Stimpy Show- Read a book with a Happy go lucky character; or with a hot-tempered character, or set in outer space the old west.

6. The World of David the Gnome- Read a book partially set underground; or has lots of animals; or where characters work to better our environment.

7. Rocko's Modern Life- Read a book with an Australian Character; or a book set near the Great Lakes; or in which characters go to an "O" place (Lot O'Comics, House-O-paint, Ton-O-Noodles etc).

Some books are broke in to part one, part two, part three and have several chapters in each. Or it could be an anthology. Or even a book bundle.

I really need a proof reader for everything I post.

Yup both are wrong.

I have no clue what was supposed to be on #2 so lets go with a character with absentee parents.

and #5 should be outer space
