"I strongly believe people in a higher grade like fourth and fifth grade should read `Little House in the Big Woods' by Laura Ingalls Wilder, because it has very hard words and the people who are reading won't understand them. Also it's very hard to understand what they did in the olden days."Sochima AtikpohPleasant Plains Elementary"I am writing to inform you about my favorite book that is written by Dr. Seuss.
