Book Reviews

" 'The Adventures of Ali Baba Bernstein' by Johanna Hurwitz is a good story about a boy named David. He wanted to change his name to Ali Baba because there were three boys in his class also named David. Also, he thought his life would change. I liked this story because it was exciting when David thought there were real jewels in his basement. If you want to know if his life changed, look up Ali Baba at your library."

"You will love 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszka. First, I like this book because it is about a wolf who is making a cake for his grandmother. But the wolf didn't have any sugar. So he went to his neighbor's house and his house was made of straws. Finally, his third neighbor's house was made of bricks. As you can see, this book is cool."
