"My favorite book is Arthur, Clean Your Room by Marc Brown. I like this book because I like to clean my room. I like when they sell his toys, but the best part is when Arthur cleans his room."

"Sara Squirrel and the Lost Acorns by Julie Sykes is about a squirrel named Sara who is always thinking about nuts. I really like it when Sara visits her friends because it shows that Sara is friendly. If you want to read a funny book, you will enjoy this one.
