Books I have read...

I have just finished reading The Secret of the Painted House. It is one of the books from the summer reading list, and it was delightful! It is also short for all of you page counters out there. I believe that you will find it suspenseful, and with a surprise twist in the middle. If you read it, tell me what you think.

I am now finished with Jack Plank Tells Tales. If you like pirates, I think you will like this book. A "retired" pirate looks for a new job, and tells his friends very entertaining stories about his life as a pirate. As you are reading see if you can predict what his future job will be!

Hello Mrs. Weiss.

How are you? Hope your summer is going great. I am reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick. I am enjoying the character Hugo. He is very adventerous and very smart. Can't wait to finish this book. The drawings are very nice.

Have a great summer. I am going to the beach this weekend.

Isabel--

I have taken a short break from reading 4th grade books, but Hugo is next on my list to read! I'm glad to hear that it is interesting, and that the main character is adventurous. I love when there are good illustrations, then you can get an even more vivid picture in your mind. Have fun at the beach, next weekend I am going camping with my family!

My next book will be Just Grace. I will read this book on my trip to the beach.

Have fun with you family at camp. I will let you know what else I read and what I think. This blog is fun and I look forward to signing in and checking who else is writing comments.
