"Poppy by Avi is a great book. It's about a cute mouse on an adventure to find a new home. On the way, he has to go through some hard and scary things. When you finish the book, you can read the next book: Poppy and Rye. I really recommend these books."

"I read a good book called Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. The characters are Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore and Owl. Pooh goes on silly and funny adventures because he wants honey. I like this book because it is interesting to me. I hope you like this book, too."

"Do you like to read books about rocks and minerals? If you like rocks, you will like Rocks and Minerals by Chris Pellant. I think you will enjoy this book because it is interesting and has beautiful rocks on the inside. It also gives tons of information with specific details."

"I just read a fabulous book called Olivia by Ian Falconer. This book is about a pig who can never find anything to wear -- just like me! She loves to try on all of her clothes. If you like pigs, or trying on all of your clothes, this is the book for you."

"The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket is a very funny but sad story. It is about the Baudelaire orphans, who always have something unfortunate happen to them. I like following their adventures as they try to put their enemy, Count Olaf, in jail."
