"I think you should read 'Ben Franklin Beware.' It is like a mystery book. The characters Laura and Parker go back into time. For all the little kids who don't know who Ben Franklin is, Ben Franklin is a man who discovered electricity. Ben Franklin made the TVs come on. I think you will be very interested."

"I really liked the book 'Lafcadio: The Lion Who Shot Back,' by Shel Silverstein. I liked reading about the lion dining in a restaurant. He demanded to be served marshmallows instead of dinner."

"The main character of 'Russell Rides Again' is Russell Michaels. He is 5 years old and is in kindergarten. He lives in an apartment in New York City with his little sister, his mother and father. I like this book because he seems like a real kid. I would like to be his friend."
