"Do you like big adventure stories? Well, if you do, read 'The Swiss Family Robinson' by Johann David Wyss. This book is about a family that is shipwrecked and stranded on the beach. The story tells how the family works together to live on the beach. You will see bravery and dreams in this story. It is my favorite."

"I think kids should read 'Winnie the Pooh' books by A.A. Milne. The books are bedtime stories told to a boy named Christopher Robin. The stories are about a stuffed bear named Winnie the Pooh and his stuffed animal friends, Piglet, Rabbit, Tigger, Eeyore, Roo, Kanga and Owl. One reason to read Pooh Bear stories is because they are funny. The books teach you that friends always trust each other."

"I really liked the book 'Tar Beach' by Faith Ringgold. It was about a girl who could fly. The best part is I saw the quilt, 'Tar Beach,' at the Baltimore Museum of Art."
