    I am reading Small as an Elephant (by Jennifer Jacobson) right now it is so good.

      Candy,
      Tell us what you think of the book when you’re finished reading. I’d love to chat with you about it as well as it’s one of my favorite Maine books.
      Did you know that Jennifer wrote another terrific story set in Maine and also about a family experiencing some hard times? It’s called Paper Things. Maybe you can try that after you finish Small as an Elephant!

    Swift is how Daisy described her death in The dog, Ray by Linda Coggin who has written a story that will be sure to make you want to know what happens next! In the story, Daisy has become a new creature that she would least expect, a dog and meets people along the way. But she must find her family and she meets a boy named Pip who wants to find his family. In the end will Daisy choose to find her family or stay with Pip?

    • Mrs. Patterson says:

      Hi Zed,
      Thank you so much for reviewing this new book! Can you imagine dying and returning back to our world as a dog? The idea is incredibly intriguing.

    Hey guys, I’m here to tell you about “The Call of The Wild” by Jack London. I had an ELA assignment and I decided to read this book which turned out to be great! In this book a dog named Buck is pulled away from his home and sent on the trails of Alaska with other dogs, and day after day they travel and Buck and his pack go from master to master but not all you might think are friendly, most are abusive of the pack. They travel many miles a day and you won’t want to put this book down especially near the end. London did a great job writing this book and uses some big vocabulary to make this story a little changeling, but very good! Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did 🙂

    The One and Only Ivan written by K.A Applegate is a heart stopping story with a good perspective from Ivan the gorilla. The best part is that it is based on a real story about a real gorilla named Ivan. In the beginning Ivan has two friends an elephant named Stella and a small dog named Bob. After a little time has past a baby elephant named Ruby comes. After she comes adventure starts. The story of Ivan is a story that will warm your heart. If you like a story with animals then you should read the One and Only Ivan.

    I have read this book called Small as an Elephant. It is about this boy and his mother [when] they went to Acadia National Park and his mother disappeared when they went to sleep and he has a plastice elphant that makes him feel safe and tells all about the animal that he likes. I love this book and i think you should read it too.
