After he was blown away he woke up and was preparing to go back to his colony and finds out he is on the back of an elephant. This book is on self-leadership.

My favorite book is Twelve. It's about a girl named Winnie who is turning twelve and is going through a lot of changes. Some of the changes she goes through are she goes to the Jr. High building, and she is going through a lot of friend changes, like Winnie has to find out who she can trust and who she can't. I think that all girls should read this book because, it always leaves you wanting to read more and because, it tells the life a girl who goes through life changing events that most girls will encounter.

My favorite book is Sounder. I like Sounder because it is a hunting and I can make a good connection. I think that you would like this book because it's about a hunting dog that the boys dad runs and I think that you could make a good connection because you run dog's. I think that you should read it for read aloud.

My favorite book is Max the Mighty. Max the Mighty is the second novel in the the series lead by Freak the Mighty. In my opinion Max the Mighty was better than Freak the Mighty, After Mr. McGuire got done reading Freak the Mighty, Max the Mighty went off of Mr. McGuire's shelf of recommendation books that day. In Freak the Mighty, a huge seventh grader named Max helps a physically handicapped boy named Freak.

I'm reading the book Because of Winn-Dixie, it is a very good book because it tells a story about a stray dog. Then a little girl named Opal found him. She found found him in a grocery store. She named the dog after the grocery store which was Winn-Dixie.


When she was taking care of Winn-Dixie she washed him and fed him and did all kinds of stuff with him. If he was my dog then I would do the same thing. She had to make money to get him a collar. She took the dog home and asked her dad if she can keep him but he said no no no.

My favorite book is Speak. The book is about a girl named Melinda. Melinda can't find any friends. If you like realistic fiction you will like this book.

Mrs. Stevenson said...

My all-time favorite book--let me see, that's a tough call. I have a top five (at least) and sometimes it depends on what I'm currently reading. Right now, I'm reading Double Identity to my class. Haddix weaves such suspense into this story. I like Stargirl and I hope to read it to my class this year, too.

I just finished Love, Stargirl--the sequel to Stargirl. I think Spinelli creates such interesting characters. If I can't feel like I know the characters, I can't really love a book.

A great book I am reading is Don't You Dare Read This, Mrs. Dunphrey written by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It is a good book mostly for girls, but some boys might enjoy it as well. It is a great book for kids in the sixth or seventh grade.

This book has a story that deals with a teenage girl's terrible life. Her name is Tish Bonner and she is in Mrs. Dunphrey's writing class. Mrs. Dunphrey hands out composition notebooks as journals. Tish doesn't normally do homework, but she enjoys writing in this journal. When Mrs. Dunphrey hands out these journals she states that if there is an entry that you do not want her to read you can mark it as Do not read Mrs. Dunphrey or something in that concept. Tish Bonner rarely let's her teacher read her entries because they are all about her life, her life is so bad that when she writes in her journal it could get her and her parents in trouble if anyone reads it. Tish writes about things that go on at home and she is afraid that Mrs. Dunphrey reads her entries. Tish starts to think that her teachers reads her entries marked do not read because in the responses from Mrs. Dunphrey it sounds like she is trying to solve Tish's problems. It is a great book, I highly recommend it to anyone.

The book The Schernoff Discoveries is a great book. it is by Gary Paulson. If you liked the book Harris and Me you will like this book. It has the same Me in Harris and Me. It is about a kid named Harold who is a nerd who does scientific research on everything. The me is Harold's friend and is also a nerd. My favorite part is when Harold takes a paper clip and with a pen and puts in to both holes in the A/C outlet and you will have to read it to find out. If you like funny books this would be a good book to read.

My favorite book that I have read this year is Spells and Sleeping Bags. It is my favorite because I can really relate to the main character Rachael. The book is about this girl named Rachael going to Camp Woodlake for the summer. While she is there, she practices her witch craft now that she has become a witch like her sister Miri. Also, at camp Rachael runs into a stuck up know it all named Liana. Liana makes everything miserable for Rachael, such as casting spells to send her friends to jail, stealing he boyfriend, and most of all, taking her sister away from her by switching bodies, and taking over Rachael's life. In the book Rachael finds out that Liana is her cousin, and is a witch just like Rachael and her sister.

Everything works out good in the book. You should read it to see what happens next. But, if you do read it, read the other two books in the squeal first!
