  1. Our class is reading Aliens on Vacation by Clete Barret Smith. The main character, Scrub, is sent to live with his grandmother for the summer. She is very strange! She runs an intergalactic bed and breakfast with some fascinating customers. We highly recommend this book because there is humor, thrills, surprises and action! At the end of read aloud, we are always eager to know what will happen next. If you like reading books with action, humor and adventure, this book is for you!

  5. I absolutely love the book Meet Caroline by Kathleen Ernst . It is a historical fiction book about a girl growing up in the middle of the war of 1812. In the beginning her father is taken away by British soldiers and becomes a prisoner of war. She promises him that she will stay strong and steady while he is gone. She helps her mother but when the war brakes out in her village she looks like she is in trouble. What can she do now? You have to read the book to find out what happens next. If you like adventure stories, this book is for you!

  7. My favorite book is the Lightning Thief. It is about a boy named Percy Jackson who finds out he is the son of a god. Then Zeus says that he stole his master bolt. Him and his best friend named Grover and the daughter of Athena go on a quest to tell Zeus that he didn't stele it. But Luke a halfblood welcomes Percy. You will have to read it to see what happens. It is by Rick Riordon he has made a whole series about Percy Jackson.

  8. During SSR, (Sustained Silent Reading) I enjoy reading Wonder Struck by Brian Selznick. It's that kind of 617 page book that you can't wait to finish. Except this time it has a extreme amount of pictures! I would say it's half mysterious and half fantasy!!! If you are into that kid of book, then stop by at your local library and check it out, or if your sure you like it, go ahead and be free and go ahead and buy it!!!

The boy and his dad send notes to each other. The boy keeps on telling his dad to pick him up. His dad keeps on saying no. I think you should read it too.
