Mibs and her brothers are great characters who have surprising, sometimes scary, abilities.  It is exciting because the characters go on a road trip in a big pink bus and have some crazy adventures.  It  is also about love, friendship and family.  It is wonderful because you are sad when it ends.

Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling

Any book in the series is recommended.

When the problem happens it’s really exciting when the culprit gets found.  In the second book it’s amazing how the chamber of secrets is opened.  There is fantasy when everyone starts falling in love!

Captain Underpants and the attack of the Talking Toilets

The toilets try to take over the world and Captain Underpants saves the day!   I like this book because of the pictures.  They are comics!  I feel great when I read it because it is funny.

Sardine in Outer Space

Sardine and her friends Uncle Yellow and Little Louie stop the bad guys who try to hurt people with weapons.  This is a funny book because their adventures are fighting with villains like Supermuscleman and Doc Croc, who try to trick them but the tricks backfire in a funny way.

The Story of Spiderman

It is action-packed and I like when Spiderman shoots his webs.  It is cool how he climbs his spider webs.

Inside Out and Back Again

Ten-year old Ha plants papaya in the yard of the house she shares with her mother and 3 older brothers. She samples the sweets at the market stalls, celebrates the lunar new year of Tet, and proudly recites the calculations she’s learned in school. The year is 1975, the place is Saigon. When the Vietnam War reaches her village, she and her family must leave, leaving behind her beloved home and her father who has been missing-in-action for 9 years. Boarding a ship and leaving her war-torn Vietnam behind, Ha, along with her mother and brothers, hope to find a more secure future in America.  Determined, Ha begins school in the foreign world of Alabama with its confusing language, dull food and unfamiliar landscape.  Experience Ha’s year of loss and learning as she leaves behind one life to begin another.
