"My favorite book is 'The Foot Book.' It is by Dr. Seuss. I like this book because it is all about different feet. It is a great book. You should read it."

" 'Hatchet' by Gary Paulsen. A 13-year-old boy named Brian is on his way to Alaska to meet his dad. His parents are divorced, so Brian flies in a one-engine bush plane from New York to Alaska. Everything goes all right until the pilot has a heart attack ... and dies. The bush plane soon crashes into the Canadian wild leaving Brian alone, with nothing but his windbreaker, his hatchet and himself. I like the book 'Hatchet' because it is about survival. I like books about survival because they tell you strategies to get through troubling situations."

" 'Watch out! Man-Eating Snake,' by Patricia Reilly Giff. It's a book about a girl named Stacy. She went to kindergarten. She said it was kittygarten! She told everyone about her snake. They all wanted to see it. When she said kittygarten, that was my favorite part of the story."
