I couldn’t narrow it down to just ten like my brother did. Here are my favorite books:
#1 The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner
I really like mysteries. In my mind I picture the scenes in the story as foggy and dark.
#2 Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry
Gooney Bird has crazy outfits and I love the funny stories she tells every day. Also, she is in second grade and I will be in second grade soon.
#3 Charlotte’s Web by EB White
Charlotte is my favorite character in this book. She is so smart and she saves Wilbur. She shows how to be a really good friend.
#4 The Witches by Roald Dahl
I like this book because when my Dad reads it to me he does a funny accent. I love the way the Grand High Witch uses a V sound for Ws…she is the Grand High Vitch!
We also watched the movie of this book and the Grand High Vitch is very scary!
I love these books because the characters go on many adventures. The pictures are really funny and make the story so good. I like Thea because she is brave. My favorite thing that happened in one of these books was when robots went crazy on the moon.
#6 My Weird School series by Dan Guttman
Miss Daisy is Crazy! was the first chapter book I read all by myself for a book report in first grade. Not all the teachers are ladies. There are some men and some ladies. So far I have only had ladies for my teachers. I noticed that all the rooms of the crazy school are wacky. The principal’s office even has a punching bag in it! I would not like to go to this school because it sounds too crazy for me but I still like to read about it.
This is my favorite book. I read it all the time. The illustrations are beautiful. Sometimes fairy tales can be a little scary or confusing, but they are not scary in this book. My favorite story inside this book is The Swan Princess.
#8 Rainbow Magic fairy series by Daisy Meadows
These books have colorful covers. The stories are adventurous. Kristy and Rachel, the girls who help the fairies, sound very nice.
#9 Miss Suzy by Miriam Young
This is my Mom’s favorite story to read to me and I like it because she likes it. Miss Suzy is cute.
#10 Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt
Scaredy Squirrel is so scared to leave his nut tree. He thinks things will happen to him – he thinks there are sharks in the river! But when he jumps out of the tree he discovers he is a flying squirrel! There are other Scaredy Squirrel books if you like this one.
#11 Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan
Little Owl is just so cute. His eyes are bigger than his whole head. I think you should read it.
#12 Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter Yarrow, Lenny Lipton and Eric Puybaret
This book has beautiful pictures and I love to sing the song.
#13 The Unruly Queen by ES Redmond
In the beginning, the main character is a wild devil queen but by the end she realizes she needs to be more polite.
#14 Verdi by Jannell Cannon
Grammy & Pop Pop gave this book to Ryan but I’m the one who likes it. Verdi is a cute snake and he does cool figure eights in the air!
#15 Bedtime is Canceled by Cece Meng and Aurelie Neyret
This is a really fun story and I wish bedtime was really canceled. The parents were not too happy about it in the story.
