Book Reviews

" 'The Magic School Bus' series are my favorite books because they have exciting adventures. The bus can turn into creatures and different things. From inside the bus, the books' characters can do things such as see what it's like to be smaller than everything else."

"In the early morning of April 18, 1906, an earthquake shook San Francisco. 'If You Lived at the Time of the Great San Francisco Earthquake' by Ellen Levine describes what it was like to be there. I thought this was a very interesting book because it was about an exciting event."

" 'Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping' by Peggy Parish is a super book. She goes camping and always does the wrong things. For example, she pitched the tent into the bushes instead of the ground. Ameilia Bedelia makes me laugh a lot."
