This pop-up book is very good. I got it when my brother was born, for being a big sister.

It's a very fun book with a lot of pop-ups. Everyone will enjoy this, especially if you like The Wizard of Oz. When you read it, on each flap there's another pop-up, even little tiny ones.

This is a very long book, but it tells the whole story about Dorothy. My favorite pop-up was at the beginning, where you turn this little flap, and you can see Dorothy and Toto falling off the bed in the tornado.

NO TALKING By Andrew Clements

I think that this book is interesting, and makes you want to keep reading it to see what happens next.

It's about a fifth grade class that has boys and girls in it. The boys and girls are having a contest, because the boys think the girls talk too much, and the girls think the boys talk too much. So, what they do is not talk for a whole week, and whichever team talks less, wins.

I also think this book would be good for around age 8.

This book is about a family that lives with a dog named Benjy. Their aunt comes over, and she has a bird that just learned how to bark. Benjy is jealous because the children aren't paying attention to him. He sets the bird free, and now it's loose!

The next morning, everyone goes looking, can't find it, and then go to the pet store to buy a new parakeet. They see a parakeet--it wasn't the original parakeet, it was a new one. But they still bought it.

The next day, they found the bird. The other bird from the pet shop, and the bird that they found that could bark, got married. What a lovely story.


Junie B. Jones is a series. In the series, there are books that take place when she is in first grade and kindergarten. But I'm going to talk about a specific book.

This book is about how Junie B. Jones loves this boy, but he thinks she's wacko. Junie's friends Lucille and Grace like him, too. He likes them as friends. The last time Junie saw him, she was laying on the ground, laughing like crazy and rolling over. That's why he thinks she's nuts.

Don't miss any of these books--they're wonderful.

THE GIVING TREE By Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a really great book. It's been around since my mom was a little kid.

It's about a boy who loves this tree so much that he plays with it all the time. Then he grows up and doesn't visit it for a while. Then he comes back, but he was too old to climb the branches and do all that stuff. Then he got even older and older and older, and the same thing happened.

I think you would love this book so much that you would read it all the time. I got it for my birthday when I turned seven, from my aunt.

STONE SOUP By Ann McGovern

This story is about a boy who taught a grouchy old lady how to make soup out of a big stone. She says, "Well, this stone soup is not going to work. I'm going to make a soup, and I'm going to show you." So she tries to prove to the boy that you can't make soup out of stones. But one day, she woke up and she looked in the pot. No stone, but there was delicious yummy soup with carrots and vegetables and all yummy stuff.

You are going to love this book. It's for boys and girls, and it's a book that you can start reading yourself, maybe in first grade.

LIGHT THE LIGHTS By Margaret Moorman

This book is about a girl who celebrates Hannukah and Christmas, just like me. There are different parts of the two different holidays. This book will teach you about the two different holidays, even if you don't even celebrate one of them.

I hope you loved this post! Remember, the holidays are coming up soon.

This is one of the Pippi Longstockings books. It's not a chapter book. It's good for boys and girls, and is a very funny story. I think you would love it. It's one of the many books in the series.

You should read this--check it out of the library or buy it!

BACK TO SCHOOL - A poem by Zombelina

September is great when school starts,
Paper and pens and lots of friends.
On the 5th day, homework starts.
We have music, art and gym,
The prettiest girl in my class' name is Kim.
The first day was so much fun,
The second day, I think,
Is going to be so much better.

This book is really good for a boy child, and girl child. It's about a boy who has a big brother, and he learns about all different dinosaurs from his brother at the zoo. His brother taught him a lot.

The little boy Patrick was imagining that all the animals at the zoo were different kinds of dinosaurs. Then he figured out that he was just imagining it.

I think whether you're a girl or boy, you should read this book.

KINDERGARTEN COUNT TO 100 By Jacqueline Rogers

This book is good for a lot of kindergarteners. On each page there is a different number, like 7 ("7 kitties when I wake up in the morning for kindergarten"). This book is written by Jacqueline Rogers. I got it because my brother is going to kindergarten, and I thought it would be a great review for all kindergarteners.

MR. HAPPY by Roger Hargreaves

The Mr. Men books are about male characters, but there are also the Little Miss books, about female characters. They're all very funny, but the main one is Mr. Happy.

Mr. Happy lives in a town where everything's happy and everyone smiles, especially the flowers. He's a big circle, and he's yellow.

You should read these books, and you will have lots of fun.

THE VELVETEEN RABBIT by Margery Williams

This book was kind of long. It was about a boy who lost his toy rabbit, and the rabbit didn't get played with anymore. The rabbit got sad and old, and he met another toy that the boy didn't play with--a horse.

I liked it, but I don't know why. I think people who didn't read it should read it.

I started reading Charlotte's Web when I was in kindergarten. My mom read it to me every night. Now, I'm going to third grade, and I still think this book is cute, because Wilbur is a really great character. He is really small in the beginning.

It is also a long book, but not too long. It has 184 pages. It's by E.B. White, who also wrote Stuart Little.

It's kind of cool how Charlotte can make words with her web.

Please check out my little brother's movie blog!
