The Giver

The Giver by Lois Lowry is a great book about an old man who is sad and partially about trees. It is a very good book and deals with things that many old men deal with. Then it talks about trees. But the trees aren’t nearly as big a part of the book as the old man is, because the old man is the main part of the book.

My favorite part was when the old man looked at the medal he won called the John Newberry Medal. He won the medal because he was the best person at giving.

The Warm Place

The Warm Place by Nancy Farmer is a book about a young boy with his animal friends who live in a place that is not cold. The boy is friends with one giraffe, one lizard, two snails and two rats, but one of the rats always hides behind the boy because he is shy.

While the boy and animal friends like the warm place, they want to go home because they like places that aren't as warm.

The best part was when he talked to the rat that’s not shy and the rat pointed at him. That part was fun.
