Teddy Roosevelt: The People's President by Sharon Gayle

Did you know that one of our greatest presidents was weak and had poor health as a child? He suffered from asthma which makes it hard to breathe. He couldn't see far away stuff? Have you ever heard of Teddy Roosevelt? He's the man I'm talking about! I liked how he became strong and overcame asthma and other challenges. He became a rancher, police commissioner, military leader, and a governor. He then became vice president of the United States. When President Mckinley was killed, Teddy became president. It was an exciting time because airplanes, new inventions, cars, and movies were all invented in this time. I like these kind of things. The Teddy Bear was even named after him because he freed a bear that was captured. I liked this book. If you can breathe, have breathed, or will breathe, read this book!

One of his talents was skateboarding he is really good and the book is too.

Mark McGwire by Richard J. Brenner

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to throw a ball 90 miles per hour? Mark McGwire can do that. My favorite part is when it says that Mark could hit home runs as an eight year old. I like that because I wish I could do that. I recommend this book to anyone who likes baseball.

Babe: The Gallant Pig by Dick King-Smith

Babe is a remarkable pig. He was an orphan that learned to do great things. He was adopted by a sheepdog named Sky. Sky taught Babe how to herd sheep, This story reminded me of the time I helped with a cattle round up. I wish we had a trained dog or pig. You should read this book if you like funny animal stories.

The Puppy Sister by S. E. Hinton

"Oh mom," she said and sat down where there wasn't any chair. Alesha ended up, splat, on the floor. Her mom fainted. That was funny! Alesha likes talking and if you like talking, you would like this book.
