"My favorite book is 'The Island of the Blue Dolphins' by Scott O'Dell. I like this book because there is a lot of adventure and it teaches us never to give up regardless of the challenges we encounter. In my heart, Karana, the main character who was left by herself on a deserted island, will always be one of my heroes."

-- Christine Lebron, St. Margaret Elementary

"I recommend 'My Robot Buddy' by Alfred Slote. In it, a boy named Jake wants a robot buddy, but it costs a lot of money. Do you think he got the robot buddy? Read the book to find out!"

-- Jason Underwood, Leithwalk Elementary

"'Riddle of the Red Purse' by Patricia Reilly Giff is a mystery about who owns the red purse found in the schoolyard. The kids went around asking other people if the purse belonged to them. Everyone says 'yes' because they knew the purse had money in it. Solve the mystery of who really owns the red purse."

-- Emileerose Zaide, Marley Elementary
