Do you like to give your mom a gift? If you do I will tell you a story about a girl who wants to buy her mom a chair as a gift. In the girl’s house there was no sofa to sit on. So the girl decided to save money and buy a big beautiful chair for her mother. Every afternoon when the girl’s mom comes home back from work she empties her purse to give her daughter some coins. Grandma gets coins from bargains when she goes to shopping. One day the girl and her mom went to buy shoes and when they was coming back they saw some people screaming and running the girl and her mom run to see what was happening . When they got there they saw that there house was on fire . The girl and her mom remember that their grandma and their cat were in the house. After some time the fire man came and helped put out the fire. The girl, her mom and her grandma moved to a new apartment. When they moved to a new apartment they don’t have anything to put in their house. So their new neighbors got in a line to give them things to set up in thier house. They got lots of things but they didn’t get even one chair. Then one day the jar was full of coins. After they ate there supper they went to the bank and change the coins into paper money. They went to many different types of furniture shops. At last they found what type of chair they wanted. Then they call there aunt and uncle to take the beautiful chair home. The girl’s dream came true.

My favorite part of this story is when the girl sit on their new beautiful chair. I like this part of the because the girl’s dream came true. The girl worked hard to collect all the coins to buy a chair for her mother.

I like this book because it tells me that if you work hard your dream will come true. I would give this book five stars. I suggest that you to read this book because it is a good book.

In the beginning of Henry and Mudge Get The Cold Shivers by Cynthia Rylant, Henry was sick. Henry’s mom and dad bring him crackers to make him feel good. Mudge got the crackers. Then Mudge got sick. So Henry and Henry’s mom took him to the vet. Henry made a sick bed for Mudge. Read this book to find out what will happen. Is Mudge going to be okay?

My favorite part is when Henry and his mom took Mudge to the vet. My other favorite part is when Mudge was wagging his tail in the car. I love this part because it is silly.

I like this book because it is funny when Mudge was eating crackers. Mudge was wagging his tail and he has a lot of crackers in his mouth. I will give it 5 out of 5 stars because it has a happy ending. I like happy ending books and everyone in my family like books with happy endings. I will be so happy if you like this too.

Frog and Toad are Friends “A Swim”

If you have fun with your friends you should read Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel. In the beginning Frog and Toad are going swimming at a river and Toad put on his bathing suit. He says “don’t look at me until I get out of the water.” Then Turtle comes. Toad told Turtle to go away but the animals come to look at Toad’s bathing suit anyway. Toad climbed out of the river. Then the animal laughed at Toad. Read the book to find out what is going to happen next.

I like the book because it is funny and sad. For example, Toad is funny when he comes out of the river. The animals laughed at his bathing suit. I would rate this book five out of five stars.

My favorite part is when they splash in the river and they have fun. I like that part because they look funny.

Would you want to have a dog? If you do you should read the book Henry and Mudge the First Book by Cynthia Rylant. In the beginning, Henry doesn’t have any brothers or sisters or friends. Henry asks his mom and dad, “Can I have a dog?” And they said, “yes.” Henry got a dog and he named it Mudge. Mudge got bigger and bigger. One day Mudge took a walk without Henry and Mudge got lost. Henry woke up and he did not see Mudge. Will Henry find Mudge?

This book reminds me of me when I got lost. Mudge gets lost and I know how that feels. Mudge got lost and he was sad and when I got lost I felt sad too.

I would rate this book five out of five stars. I like the book because Henry had a dog and I want a dog too. You should read the book because it’s fun and it’s a good book.

Do you like dogs? If you like them, you should read Henry and Mudge, it’s by Cynthia Rylant. She has a lot of books about Henry and Mudge. At first Henry felt lonely because he didn’t have brothers, sisters, friends, or pets. Then he asked his parents if he could have a pet and they said “YES”. So Henry bought Mudge. He was very happy. After that, Mudge grew big and could run fast. One day Henry lost Mudge. If you want to know if he finds Mudge or if Mudge was lost forever, then you should read this book.

My favorite part is about Mudge growing up and doing and having a lot of interesting things, like playing with dirty socks, and a fish tank in Henry’s room. When Mudge grew up Henry went to school and he didn’t think some bad things would happen, now he’s thinking about vanilla ice cream or something good. This part is about how they change when they both know each other, so I like this part.

I like this book. I would give this book five stars. If you like dogs or pets, this book is
good for you because this book is about people and pets. Why do I like it? It is a good book. First, I like dogs. I have two dogs and one had 12 puppies so I love dogs. And this book is about people and pets doing something together. This book is funny and it has a lot of interesting stories. And it’s about good things. So I think teachers and parents can say okay to this book and read it to kids.

I read Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel. In the beginning, Frog knocked on Toad’s front door. There was no answer. Next, Frog walked into Toad’s house. Toad was sleeping. Frog pulled all the covers over his head. Toad was tired and he wanted to sleep. Frog tore off many pages of the calendar. Frog was playing a trick because he wanted Toad to wake up. Frog tricked Toad that it is May and Toad thinks that it is real. Frog wanted to play. Read the book to find out what will happen next.

My favorite part is when Frog pushed Toad out of bed because it is silly. When my friend pushed me out of bed I was silly too.

I like this book because it is funny. I would give it five stars because it’s fun. If you have a best friend you should read this book.
