Please note the Reviews have been added under our Reading & Writing Coordinator's name – Jasmine, but the reviewers name appears at the end of each review.

And the following books have been suggested to the Library to purchase:

Roll Over Pavlova compiled by June Factor and illustrated by Annie Marshall.
Rating 8/10. In my reading record I read Roll Over Pavlova. I thought it was the best. It is funny and fun. It has jokes, rhymes and children's songs published in Australia in 2004 by Brolly Books. By Julia.

My Best Friend by Gabby Goldsack. Rating 9/10. Sarah and Emily are best friends. They go and do everything together. One day after a great holiday Sarah and Emily hear some terrible news. Sarah was moving! Would the two girls still be best friends? Read the book to find out. By Emily.

Duck Under the Table complied by Gwenda Beed Davey and Illustrated by Peter Viska
The book I liked the most of all the books I have read so far is Duck Under the Table. The part I liked the most is where the boy dresses up as a lady and the lady dresses up as a man. By Emily S.

Fact File Egypt. Rating 10 out of ten because it is fact file book with stickers, pictures, a story, has cards in it, had a cardboard headdress that Egyptian Gods wear. By Max.
