"I liked 'Junie B. Jones Is (Almost) a Flowergirl' by Barbara Park because it is funny and has great illustrations. The very best thing, though, is the way Junie B. Jones talks."

-- Markia Irvin Boyd, Brehms Lane Elementary

"My favorite book is called 'The Elephant's Child' by Rudyard Kipling. It is about an elephant's child that keeps asking the same questions. Then one day, he asks a different question!"

-- Rachel Dewberry, Lisbon Elementary

"I like the book 'C. O. L. A. R.' by Alfred Slote. The book is about a boy and a robot who discovers a secret place for runaway robots who hate humans. By the end, they make the world a better place for robots. I like this story because it teaches you that you should treat everyone equally."

-- Yosef Lejtman, Talmudical Academy
