"Have you ever wondered what it's like to be inside a twister? Well, if you have, you would love this story. It is called 'Old Ramon' by Jack Schaefer and it's a great book. 'Old Ramon' is a farmer who has to teach this kid how to be a farmer. He teaches him how to get through deserts, what to do in the case of a twister and how to bring sheep through mountains. If you like adventure you've got to read this book. I especially learned how hard it is to be a farmer."

" 'The Case of the Shark Encounter' by Nancy E. Krulik is my favorite book because it stars my favorite twin girls, Mary-Kate and Ashley. They love to solve mysteries. They love Sea World so much that they can even find sharks without looking for them."
