" 'Two and Too Much' by Mildred Pitts Walter is about a boy named Brandon who had hard trouble with his sister, so his mother said if his sister got into anything, she will do the cleaning. I like this story because my little brother always gets into everything, too."

"The 'Magnificent Mummy Maker' by Elvira Woodruff is about a boy named Andy Manetti, who has a stepbrother named Jason. Andy calls Jason 'Mr. Gifted' because he can do everything better than Andy. Andy had to do a school project on the Egyptian culture. I liked this book because it talked about mummies and how the Egyptians mummified people and because the story had to do with being average to becoming magnificent."

"If you like stories about friendship, you should read 'Bridge to Terabitha' by Katherine Paterson. Two friends, Jess and Leslie, create a fantasy world where they can escape their problems and fears. A terrible tragedy helps one of them learn to face his enemies. This book made me think about what it means to be a friend!"

-- Emma Larkin, Jacksonville Elementary
