My favorite book that I think kids should read is “Soul Surfer.” This book tells about a girl that was attacked by a shark and lost her arm. She still does everything she did before but with one arm. This book tells people that even though a body part is missing, you still have to have faith in yourself and make it seem better than what you think it is. So, this book will be good for kids because it will tell them when something gets rough you get up and make it better. — Gabrielle Bossom, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers
My favorite book is “The Beast” by R.L. Stine. It’s a very fun read with lots of twists and turns! It’s about a ghost on a roller coaster. I love it! — Hannah Culp, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick
My favorite book is the “Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey.” Four kids travel through Europe to find clues to save a friend. This book has plenty of action and suspense to keep you engaged. The book is a very good read and you should check it out. — Ricardo Taylor, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. Myers
My favorite book is “Harold and The Purple Crayon.” It’s funny and easy to read. It lets you use your imagination. I think everyone should read it. — Jara Mumma, fourth grade, Fishing Creek El., Mr. Richcrick
My favorite book is “Hero” by Mike Lupica. I think other kids should read this because a boy named Zach finds out he has powers. He eventually uses his powers to fight “The Bads,” the villains. Zach faces many challenges and Mike Lupica ends each chapter with a huge cliffhanger. This book would really appeal to kids who like super powers and cliffhangers. — Jared Dickson, sixth grade, E.H.M.I.S., Mrs. MyersRead More
