Week 4 Challenge 2015


It's Week Four of our Summer Reading Blog Challenge. How is your reading going?

If you are wondering what book to read next, here are a few suggestions from Natalie, Jacob, Aidan, and Gabi.
How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse by Cressida Cowell 
I read the book How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse by Cressida Cowell. It was about a boy named Hiccup who set out on a quest to find a frozen potato. All the Viking tribes called it the vegetable that no one dares to name. Hiccup's friend, Camicazi, went on the quest also. I liked this book because it is about dragons and Vikings who work together and don't fight each other. I like books that are adventures and have quests. ~Natalie Z Grade 2
Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar
I am reading Sideways Stories from Wayside School  by Louis Sachar.  It all starts when Mrs.Gorf, their teacher, turns a dozen kids into apples in one day.  And then the next day turns the other dozen of kids into apples.  With a wiggle of her ears, a point of her finger, and sticking out her tongue, she turns them into apples!  ~Jacob B. Grade 3 
Pokemon Wrath of Legends by Simcha Whitehill
I read Pok√©mon Wrath of The Legends. In this story, Ash, Iris, and Cilan go to Milos Island to get some revival herbs so Ash could battle a gym leader named Clay, but he couldn't because all of the revival herbs were dried out.  I like this book because it is cool and interesting. ~Aidan D. Grade 4
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabestein
I am reading a book this week called Escape from Mr.Lemoncello's Library. So far the book is about kids who have to write an essay, so they get to go to the grand opening of the library. Only 12 of the kids get to be picked though.  Will Kyle Keeley get picked?  ~Gabi B. Grade 5

Take a peek at what our bloggers have been reading this week.
Junie B. Jones: Shipwrecked by Barbara Park
I am reading Junie B. Jones: Shipwrecked and I am on page 24. I like reading Junie's journal at the beginning of each chapter. A lady named Mrs. Weller came to the class to talk about germs. She wrote the word virus on the board. The class is worried about Roger because he didn't come back from the nurse.

Jurassic World: Dinosaur Field Guide

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
I am reading Harry Potter and Sorcerer's Stone. Harry finds out that he is a wizard. He gets accepted at Hogwarts. On the train to Hogwarts, he makes a new friend named Ron.

How to Speak Dolphin by Ginny Roby
I am reading a book called How to Speak Dolphin. It is about a boy who has autism and loves dolphins. His mom died, and he lives with his older sister and stepdad. I haven't finished the book yet, but I think the reason he loves dolphins is because his mom used to read him a book about dolphins.
