Book Reviews

"The book 'Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Babe Ruth Baseball' by David A. Adler is a mysterious book. The book is about Cam and Eric who were in the community center when the Babe Ruth baseball disappeared. One reason why I like this book is when Cam said 'click,' she remembered all the things she saw. Another reason that I like this book is Cam is only in fifth grade and she is already a detective."

"I enjoyed the Disney fairy tale 'Beauty and the Beast.' I think the illustrator made the pictures beautifully. One thing I like about the book was the beast was really a prince. If you want to read about fairy tales, this is a good one."

"My favorite book is 'Sylvester and the Magic Pebble' by William Steig. First Sylvester found the magic pebble, then it turned him into a rock. My favorite part of the book is when Sylvester turns back into himself."
