Each person in our classroom has an assigned number and a basket in which he or she chooses a book that he or she thinks other people in our class should read. On Friday of each week, four to five students will have their choices featured here. In addition, each students' choice for the week will be listed.
Student #10: I recommend Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince because it is very interesting and you never know what is going to happen. For example, when they were fighting the Inferi I never knew Dumbledore was going to wake up and send the fire circle in the water. Anyway, I hope you will like it. I definitely did.
Student #11: I chose Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them because I think J.K Rowling is a great author. And the plants and animals she has made are spectacular. But the creatures are out of this world. The spells are too.
Student #12: The reason l put Anybody’s Game in my basket is because I think girls can do what boys can do. In the book the girl, Kathryn Johnston, really wanted to play baseball.
Student #13: One of my favorite series is Humphrey. I like Humphrey because one of my favorite animals is a hamster. Another reason I like Humphrey is it is one of my favorite types of books I like to read is talking animals. These are some reasons I love Humphrey.
