Jacky Ha Ha

This book is about a girl who has 7 sisters. Her dad is a lifeguard and mom is away in the military.

Her name is Jacky Hart but she stutters so when she was saying her name it came out Jacky Ha Ha.

I liked it when she climbs to the top of a Ferris Wheel.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fun, funny, and a heartwarming story.

My Little Sister Ate One Hare

The Book is a really awesome book it helps with your counting.

The book is really about a little girl eating all king of things like 1 hare and 2 snakes and 3 ants even there underpants! So it is mostly about counting.

My favorite part of the book is when she ate 10 peas which made her throw up everything that she ate.

I would recommend this book because it is a great book to learn how to count.

Chasing Lincoln's Killer

Chasing Lincoln's Killer by James Swanson

John Wilkes Booth, president Abraham Lincoln's assassin hated president Lincoln and what he did. He was going to kidnap Lincoln, but he changed his mind and decided to kill Lincoln.

You maybe already know about president Abraham Lincoln's assassination, but did you know before and after his assassination? "Chasing Lincoln's Killer" is about before Lincoln's death, during his death, and after his death. Plus, the Union army chases Lincoln's killer, John Wilkes Booth for twelve days. Read the book to find out the ending!

If you read the book or know about Lincoln's death, don't spoil the book!

I recommend this book to anyone who likes Abraham Lincoln!

From the publisher: In 1899, a twelve-year-old rat catcher on North Carolina's Biltmore estate teams up with the estate owner's young nephew to battle a great evil and, in the process, unlocks the puzzle of her past.

THIS BOOK IS AN...action-packed family friendly book by the same author as the 2nd one "Serafina and the Twisted Staff." My favorite part is when her and her Pa start home after a frighting night. i recommend this book to any one who loves to read!

Public School Superhero by James Patterson

This is a book about a young African American boy who is helping out and teaching chess to another young African American boy. My favorite part was how the boy made friends with some one totally different. Who will like this? Anyone who likes funny sad books.
