"My book review is about The Amazing Life of Benjamin Franklin by James Giblin. Benjamin Franklin was born January 17, 1706 in Boston, Mass. He died on April 17, 1790. In September 1748, he discovered electricity."

"I strongly suggest that you read Dirt Bikes by Jesse Young for several reasons: It shows the equipment you have to wear to ride a dirt bike and to be safe; it shows people going through extremely deep water, and it shows tire details. Dirt Bikes is a cool book."

"There are many Wayside School books, but Wayside School is Falling Down, by Louis Sachar, is one of the best. Wayside School is a very popular school built 30 stories high with one class on each floor. This book has many stories about hysterical things that happen on the 30th floor. My favorite story is called 'Substitute.' It is about kids fooling a substitute teacher and at the end, the teacher fools them. If you like funny and weird stories, read this one!"
