Jack M. (second grade) recommends:
He says, "I read The Dark by Lemony Snicket, a legendary author. I thought this book was amazing! This book was amazing because it has great details. The main character is a little boy named Lazlo. In the story Lazlo tells you where the dark can hide. My favorite part was when the dark visited Lazlo’s room. This book helped me not be afraid of the dark. If you are afraid of the dark try this book!"
Anna M. (fourth grade) recommends:
She says, "I read Nurse, Soldier, Spy by Marissa Moss and John Hendrix. This book is a true story about a girl named Sarah Edmonds who is running away from a marriage arranged by her parents. She disguises herself as a boy and names herself Frank Thompson, then runs away to the United States. My favorite part of this book was when the chaplain asked Frank if she wanted to be a spy and Frank did not hesitate and she said “I’M YOUR MAN!!!” I also liked when she spilled water on the spy for the South. I recommended this book to all ages under 6th grade. Boys and girls will like this book because it has a lot of action in it."
Daniel B. (fourth grade) recommends:
Daniel says, "If you like sports and suspense, you will love this book. What happens in this book can really happen in real life. It teaches you lessons that are great to learn in life, like don’t get ahead of yourself and don’t get too proud and full of yourself. The character, Drew (True) Robinson, is a basketball star who is getting too much respect and attention. So then he gets way too full of himself. He meets someone who learned the hard way that getting too full of himself has its consequences. What happens? Read the book! I think you will like True Legend and always remember the advice this book gives you!"
