Natalie and the Downside-Up Birthday

Natalie has a birthday party on the same day as the meanest girl in kindergarten. Both girls want everyone to come to their party. Do you think it's more important that everyone comes or your true friends?

Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio

My teacher at school started reading Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio but only got to chapter 3. I asked my mom if she could order it and she did. My mom ordered it and I read the whole thing. In this book, 12 year old Peg gets polio during the school year. She got 3 kinds of polio and was paralyzed from the neck down. It was hard for her to breathe. She had a lung problem and it was very hard to swallow. Find out how a milkshake saved her life and how she made true friends at Sheltering Arms!
True Story!

Guest Post: The Very Special Valentine

The very special bunny needed to give a valentine or a thing for the other bunny, so they could be friends on valentine's day. He kept finding stuff that belongs to other people. He didn't find anything so he didn't get her anything. They begin to be friends. I enjoyed this book and I think you will too.

By M's sister L, age 5

Winnie the Horse Gentler, book 1

Yesterday I read the first Winnie the Horse Gentler book. It's about a girl named Winnie that loves horses. Her sister's name is Lizzy and she loves bugs, but she's afraid of horses. Their mother died 2 years ago and they have to live with their father. They've moved 5 times this year and Lizzy can't remember where she finished 4th grade. Winnie worked hard to train the horse for a contest to decide who keeps it. Enjoy!

A guest post! The Polar Bear Paddle

This is a guest post from my 5 year old sister E. She read The Polar Bear Paddle and wants to tell you about it.

A little polar bear learns how to do the polar bear paddle. His friends want to learn it too. Their friends already learned how to do it and they thought it was fun. They loved the polar bear paddle. They did it by themselves. They wanted to do it every day. In the old days he didn't know how to do it. They liked the bear. The bear was COOL.

The Doll People

The Doll People is about a family of dolls who meet another family of dolls while Annabelle is searching for Auntie Sarah with her grandpa and her brother. Tiffany is the girl doll from the Funcraft family of dolls. Tiffany and Annabelle search for Auntie Sarah and find Auntie Sarah in the attic and part of her dress was stuck under a trunk. Tiffany got Annabelle's family the next day and got Auntie Sarah out from under the box. Grandma Katherine found Auntie Sarah in the captain's bed (the captain is a cat) and put Auntie Sarah in Annabelle's family's doll house. (It's really the house that Annabelle's family lives in but it's also a doll house to the Palmers, and the Palmers are the people who own the dolls). This is a really great book and I love it. I read it in 3 days. This book was a gift from my friend Athena.

Little Women

Little Women is a great book for young readers. This book is about 4 girls with BIG experiences! The girls met a boy named Lawrence and they have a little club that is called the Busy Bee Society. One of the little girls gets sick and when her dad got home, she woke up. I have read this book is PERFECT for kids. It only took me 3 days, but...it might take longer or shorter for you. GOOD LUCK!
