Shipwrecked (Junie B. Jones Series), by Barbara Park

Junie B. Jones is a first grader and in this story everyone is getting sick and her class is having a problem with it they all plug their noses because a kid name Roger threw up and Junie B's. class thinks that they would get all his germs up their noses so they have to eat lunch with their noses plugged and that's hard so finally they unplug their noses and they feel much better after that their nurse comes to their classroom and talks to them about viruses after they talked about that Junie B's class finds out that they will be in a play!!!Mr.Scary said that the play will be about Christopher Columbus and that for their homework they would have to find some facts about him to go in the play.Junie finds 18 facts and in the play she is a ship.

What I like about the book is that the book makes you feel scared when Junie B. and May (someone in Junie's class) almost fall on top of each other because May bumps Junie's ship really hard.

Ramona Quimby Age 8, by Beverly Cleary

Ramona Quimby is a little girl who is a good artist and so is her father and her father is going to college for it.Ramona in this story gets very embarrassed because at first she gets embarrassed because she asks her mom to give her a boiled egg for lunch and at lunch everyone opens their boiled egg a different way and one of them is cracking it on their head and she did that but her mom forgot to boil it and she got a big mess.

Ramona is really just a little girl that has a life like us and the book just talks about what goes on every day and she tries to make a day normal. She thinks that her days are sopposed to be just plain peaceful days, but something weird just HAS to happen. Ramona tries to be like her sister because her sister is the one who gets all the fun things and is neat and reasposible and the goody good person in the family.

I like Ramona because in this book she tries to be perfect for everyone, such as when she was dancing and singing with her neighbor, or when she made supper with her older sister. I like her because she is like me because I feel like I try to be perfect also.
