AWESOME AUTHORS: Circus dog’s tale is silly, inspirational
Book: “Extraordinary Jane”
Author/Illustrator: Hannah E. Harrison
This is about a dog who wants to be special in the circus. His family members all had special talents, and he didn’t have a talent.
I loved this story! I loved it because I love the part when the dog was just ordinary, but that was good enough. I think other kids should read this because it’s silly and it is about a puppy. Kids like puppies.

Book provides how-to for lots of fun at the beach
Book: “All You Need for a Beach”
Author: Alice Schertle
Illustrator: Barbara Lavallee
This book was about all the things you need to make a beach and to have fun at a beach, like lots of sand, water, lemonade, sunglasses and beach toys. I really liked this book because I like going to the beach, too.
I liked the pictures in the book. It reminds me of summer.
I think other kids would like this book if they like beaches. I think that people who are good at reading should read this book.
