"My favorite book is 'Her Stories: African American Folktales, Fairy Tales and True Tales' by Virginia Hamilton. My favorite story in this award-winning collection is 'Marie and the Redfish.' I like this story because it is about magic and falling in love."

"I like 'What Kind of Bird is That' by Mirra Ginsburg because the bird is unusual and a goose switches parts with other animals. The bird learns a lesson -- to be happy who you are."

-- Joey Cover

Elmwood Elementary

"The story 'The Good Old Days' by Dave Werner is a wonderful story. It is about kittens who spend the night at their grandparents. They help us learn how some things must change, but some things still stay the same."

-- Christine Haulsee
