Hi, my name is August. Did you know a bunch of races fought in the Revolution? Then you will really like the book Everybody's Revolution by Thomas Fleming. A slave came from the fields and worked for the American army. Days after he joined he went to a British fort. The British wanted him. But the British didn't know that he worked for the American army. so every night the British sent the slave to spy on on the Americans, but instead of spying he told the Americans the British plan. So if you want to learn more about the American Revolution visit your public library and look for Everybody's Revolution.

Hi, my name is Emma. Have you ever known of a baby that didn’t like his milk cold and didn’t like it hot and only drank it warm? Well then you’ll really like the book The Seven Silly Eaters by Mary Ann Hoberman. These are my personal favorite parts of the book. Peter only drank milk warm and Lucy only drank pink lemonade and if there was a lump in Mac’s oatmeal he would pour all of it on the unsuspecting cat so if you agree with me you should get this fantastic book The Seven Silly Eaters by Mary Ann Hoberman.

Hi! My name is Audrey.

Have you ever heard a voice as big as a kettle drum? Well then you will really like the book Grandpa’s Song by Tony Johnston. Grandpa loves to sing. His voice is so deep the pictures shake when he sings. Grandpa’s choice of song is ok but when it comes to singing he makes the song come to life. In Grandpa’s Song Grandpa really experiments with all different voice levels. So if you want to know what happens in Grandpa’s Song you should go to your public library.

Hi, my name is Khalil. Have you ever heard of twenty waiters serving pizza for breakfast? Then you will love the book Pizza For Breakfast by Maryann Kovalski.

So the next time you see Pizza for Breakfast, read it!

Hi. My name is Tetsu. Have you ever seen a mixed-up chameleon? Well then you will really like the book The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle. This is a story about a chameleon who turns into different kinds of animals. He looks funny like that. If you want to get this book just get it.
