"I read a book called `Heidi' by Johanna Spyri. My favorite part was when Heidi lived with her Uncle Alp. And Clara, Heidi's friend, lived with her. Heidi's other friend is Peter. Clara was in a wheelchair. But Heidi and Peter taught her how to walk. Then Clara's father came and he was so happy that Clara could walk!"

"Did anybody new ever come into your school and start to cause trouble? Well, if they did, `Nothing's Fair in Fifth Grade' by Barthe Declements is a good book for you. Even if you are a new student in Ms. Hanson's class, she is still strict. That is why this is my favorite book."

"My favorite book is `The Berenstain Bear Scouts Meet Bigpaw' by Stan and Jan Berenstain because I like bears and fiction. I like when Bigpaw plays his banjo. He really likes to sing. My favorite scout is Sister. I like Sister because she likes animals like I do."
