"I like the book 'A Mouse Called Wolf' by Dick King-Smith because a little woman named Mrs. Honeybee fed a mouse if he would sing. It was hilarious when a cat chased the mouse around the house. Mrs. Honeybee hurt her leg on her bed. The mouse rescued her by calling 911 and sang."

"My favorite book is 'Corduroy' by Don Freeman. I like this book because it has kindness, and Corduroy is cute and Lisa was kind too because she sewed him a new button. And when Corduroy got in Lisa's house he had a bed and a friend."

"One of my favorite books is 'Where the Red Fern Grows' by Wilson Rawls. A boy wants two hound dogs and when he finally gets them, he names them Little Ann and Old Dan. I liked this book because it is very exciting when the two dogs were on the trail of a ring-tailed coon. It is also very sad when Old Dan and Little Ann die and a red fern grows between them."

Davidsonville Elementary School
