This Promise of Change: One Girl's Story in the Fight for School Equality

By: Jo Ann Allen Boyce & Debbie Levy

This book is about a girl in 1956, named Jo Ann Allen and her struggles with racism and fight for school equality. I like this book because it is written very different from any other book I have ever read before. It is made up of poems, titles of articles, and newspapers. Also, this book really lays out how bad dark-skinned people were treated back then, and didn’t sugar-coat anything, which I really like. Overall, I found this book very interesting and nice to read, I would definitely recommend this book.-Jessie

Geronimo Stilton: The Search For Sunken Treasure

If I had to chose my top 3 favorite book (series) as a child, Geronimo Stilton would definitely be my first choice with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom at second place. Geronimo is a writer / publisher at the Rodent's Gazette. But in this book, he is more than a writer, he is a treasure hunter. When Geronimo's Aunt Sweetfur comes to the Rodent's Gazette to talk about her lost husband / Captain (Geronimo's Uncle Grayfur), and the treasure he left on his ship after it sank. She wants Geronimo, Geronimo's sister Thea, Geronimo's cousin Trap, and Geronimo's favorite nephew Benjamin, to help her find items to help remind her of her lost husband. Is Geronimo and his family up for the challenge? Will they find out what happened to their Uncle Grayfur? Find out by reading, Geronimo Stilton's: The Search For Sunken Treasure.
This is my favorite Geronimo Stilton book of all time, and even though I only read about 1/10 of all the Geronimo Stilton Books made by the original author, I have a lot of knowledge about the books. I give this book a rating of 10 out of 10.-Mackenzie
