Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin
Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type

amymbr, November 15, 2008

What I liked best about “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” was the humor of the entire story as it unfolds; it had gotten funnier and funnier as the story went on. My favorite part was when the cows put up the first strike letter, because their demands to the farmer were not being met, which said, “Sorry. We’re closed. No milk today.” Then the hens decided that they wanted the same as the cows so they joined in on the strike and then the letter left for the farmer said, “Closed. No milk. No eggs.” Of course the farmer was getting furious. The farmer and the animals kept writing letters back and forth until their disagreement was solved. I also loved the illustrations within the book. The bright and colorful pictures really keep my attention which made the story even better. I feel that this book would be appropriate to use with young readers/listeners because it teaches how to compromise and agree so both parties involved can be satisfied with the outcome. I will defiantly be investing in other Doreen Cronin books. In my opinion “Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type” deserves the Caldecott Honor Book Award that it received.

Ruby Lu, Empress of Everything by Lenore Look
Ruby Lu, Empress of Everything

amymbr, September 16, 2008

What I liked best about “Ruby Lu, Empress of Everything” was how her thoughts and actions were as real as a 2nd grader could be. I could imagine Ruby Lu as a real girl walking around and getting into trouble. I liked how Ruby Lu was very adventurous. Her swimming experiences and her experiments on the playground slide really made me laugh. Her relationship between her and her family that emigrated from China was a good example of how difficult change can be even if it does involve your own family and customs, but Ruby’s love for her family helped her get through all of the change. I wanted to keep reading to see what Ruby Lu was going to do next. Ruby Lu remained me of my own daughter who just finished third grade, so I could relate to Ruby Lu’s relationship with her best friend and all of the ups and downs that happen throughout a relationship between two 2nd grade girls. To me Ruby Lu was a smart loving little girl who wanted to grow up, but yet still had lots of fun just being a kid.
