For the very last “It’s Monday, What are you Reading” post I read five books.
The first book I read was My Diary from Here to There/ Mi Diario de Aqui Hasta Alla by Amada Irma Perez. This book was about a little girl that had to move from Juarez in Mexico to California because her dad lost his job and there weren’t many available jobs in Mexico. At the end of the book turns out that the little girl in the story is the Author Amada and that was her story of when her parents moved.
The second book I read was Surfer Chick by Kristy Dempsey. This book was about a chicken that wanted to learn how to surf. Her dad bought her a nice pink surf board and she went out into the ocean but failed her first time. After she watched her dad surf she gained some confidence and decided to go out again and did a marvelous job surfing and even came up with her own trick.
The third book I read was Santa’s Christmas Surprise by Robert Bernardini. This book was about Santa getting a Christmas surprise from people all over the world thanking him for all the joy he brings on Christmas.
The next book I read was one of my favorites, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. The book is about a little boy who truly believes in Santa and gets to go to the North Pole where Santa will pick a kid and give away the first Christmas gift. Santa picks the little boy and the little boy asks for a bell from Santa’s sleigh, he ends up losing it but Santa returns it to him and as the years go by the people that don’t believe in Santa can’t hear the bell.
The last book I read was The Amazing Magic Show by P.J. Petersen. This book was about two boys named Hal and Chuck. Hal is the older brother and Chuck is the younger brother. Chuck becomes interested in magic and tries to do magic tricks of his own but Hal just laughs at him. It was a really funny book to read and full of magical adventures. I also liked how it was really easy to read and follow along.
