"Do you like horses? Then you will enjoy Riding Freedom by Pam Munoz Ryan. This is a book that is interesting and sad. First, Charlotte's parents ride a horse down the hill with a baby and they crash into a boulder on a stormy night. A great sacrifice happens to save the baby. To find out more, you should read the book."

"I read a book called Grizzly by Gary Paulsen. I would not recommend this book for kids younger than third-grade because it might give them nightmares, but I would recommend it for older kids because it will help them get into chapter and non-picture books.

Julius the pig makes too much noise so Maya has to teach him manners. I like this story because it tells you how to teach a pig manners."
