"I think 'Morris Goes to School' by Bernard Wiseman is a good start for kids who are just starting to read. Will Morris keep going to school? Morris is very tall and skinny. He is also different from all the other kids because he is a moose. I recommend that you read it."-- Ronnie DorseyLeith Walk Elementary"My favorite book is 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl. I recommend this book because it is very exciting to read. The book is about a poor boy named Charlie who won a pass to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

"I enjoyed the book 'The House on Cherry Street, Book III; The Final Nightmare' by Rodman Philbrick and Lynn Harnett. I think it was a good mystery. I like scary books, and it gives me an idea for a book I could write when I grow up. That's why I enjoyed the book."-- Nadia Steel, Jacksonville Elementary"If you like adventures and horses, you would want to read 'Black Beauty' by Anna Sewell. This book is about a horse that is with his master. He is put with a whole stable full of horses that he does not know and gets sick.
