    I read Meet Kaya An American Girl.
    My favorite part was when every body was dancing in a circle. My favorite character was Kaya. My least favorite part was when Kaya was in the woods with the stick people. This book is about Indians and Kaya and her blind sister called Speaking Rain. Kaya and her pony Steps High race Fox Tail. I LOVED THIS BOOK.

    I read On the Banks of Plum Creek. Laura, Pa, Ma, Carrie,and Mary go west. Some of my favorite parts were, that they were living in a dugout in the side of a hill. The floor was just dirt, but Ma was able to clean it up and make it a nice place to live. One day, a whole bunch of grasshoppers were flying in the air and they ate their crops. Laura has a “friend” named Nellie Oleson. Nellie is sort of mean because she is rich and she makes Laura feel sad and poor. But then Mr. Oleson is nice. He runs the store where Laura and her family buy their stuff. I like Laura’s family because they are a gentle family: they all stick up for each other and treat each other kindly. If I lived in Laura’s time, I would have fun for a short time but I would miss electronics.

    Its about how Felicity found a horse who didn’t have a name.
    Felicity named the horse Penny because her coat was just
    like the color of a penny.
    the owner of the horse “Jiggy Nye” he didn’t like Felicity going
    near Penny.

    I read Meet Kaya. my favorite part about this book is when Kaya is in a race against another Native American. They had the race because the competitor just wanted to challenge Kaya to see whose horse was the fastest.My favorite character is Speaking Rain. My least favorite part is the Stick People because it wasn’t as interesting. I felt bad for Kaya when she got whipped by the Whipwoman because she didn’t look out for her two twin brothers.

    Now I am on BOOK TWO !!!!!!!!!!

    I read Addy’s Little Brother. It was about Addy’s family being together, Sam meting a boy named Daniel, and Addy getting mad at Sam because he was hanging out with Daniel. Then she realized they turned out as freinds. My favorite part was when Daniel went in the barn and tried tacking up the horses because it was kind of interesting. Daniel fell on the ground and the horse reared. It was a little bit dangerous.
