I read the Inside-Outside Book of London with my mom. I kind of like the idea of showing stuff from the inside and the outside. London is in England. I live in the United States, so London is really far away. I really like to learn about other countries.
Hope Springs is about kindness. There was not much water because there was a drought. Boniface is a boy with no mommy or daddy. He lives in the orphanage with other kids and Ruth and Henry take care of them. Boniface tried to get water at the spring. The first time he came they kicked him out so he could not have any water. They were mean. Boniface is very curious about the water. He tries to help everyone.
I'll just start off by saying I liked Tangled Webs, and I thought it started out great. But, yes, the horrible but. But it fell flat for many reasons. The main character, Arista, is the infamous Lady A, one who is feared by many. Only few know that she's just an orphan pawn to a terrible man, Bones. It's through him that she lives a life of abuse and starvation.
Two girls named Kate and Emmy really want a puppy, but their dad says no. Their father always tells them that they should never give up, so they keep asking and asking and asking. Their father also says they should be more responsible, so they take care of their neighbors’ dog while they are away on vacation.
Big Dog and Little Dog is a short book about two dogs. The two dogs live together in a house. They like each other, and play with each other, and do things together. They want food, so their owner gives them food. They are both full and sleepy so they get into their own beds. But they are both lonely so they snuggle up together.
I enjoyed reading On the Shoulder of a Giant, because I like to read myths and legends from different places around the world! It is fun to know what sort of explanations people have for things that happen, like what makes the wind blow.
There’s no story. I thought there would be a story. There’s a bunny learning to be a ninja by reading a book. (Rule #3 should be: watch where you are going). He steps on a rake, and the handle flings up. I can still see him when he’s trying to hide in a bush. He hooks himself to the tree with his own weapons. (I don’t think he knows how to escape). He looks like he is stuck in the tree when he is supposed to be climbing up it.

5 to 1 is an inspiring protest for freedom and women's rights all around the world, hidden in a fantastic and well-written book in prose and verse. It is the story of two teenagers in a society where girls have become a scarce commodity – an extreme consequence of a prior state in which families only wanted to have boy children, and had abortions to keep from having daughters.
