My favorite book is Bones.
I like this book because I like all the interesting, detailed facts about the rib cage and chest that are mentioned throughout the book. I also love all the multi-colored pictures that appear in the book. smile
For example, the page midway through the book, I like the detailed picture of the rib cage. My favorite line in Bones is this paragraph: Breathe in deeply as you can, and notice how your chest expands and relaxes. it rises up and outwards as you inhale air into your lungs, then down and inward when you exhale. I tried this myself, and it was so cool! I never noticed how detailed my breathing was before! smile

My Favorite Book: Cats
Why I like this book: I love cats and I like to learn about them. I also love all the pictures in the book.
Evidence from the text: I like the page where you wrote about how to tell how a cat is feeling. I think it is very interesting. The pictures are up close and I think that is cool because you can see many details.

My Favorite book: The Optical Illusion book

Why: I like the optical illusion book because I love trying really hard to see how it’s done before reading how.

Evidence from text: On page 10, I would try to see if the poles in figure A-4 were the same size. then I would try it myself. Same on page 11. I drew it myself, and still don’t believe it. Even the chapter numbers confuse me. As well as the contents, index and index letters. I am able to draw some of them, though. smile

Favorite book :  The Universe    
This is my favorite book since astrophysics is my favorite subject. I really like deep space and forces such as Dark Energy and Dark Matter. I’m also very interested in how the universe works.  This book is all about the universe and the universe is my favorite thing.  My favorite part is when Seymour Simon explains how the universe began on page six. He describes it so perfectly it makes me feel like I was there.    smile

tornados grin
this is my favorite book because I like how you explain how a tornado forms and the states that get tornados in a specific month. I like the pictures of peoples towns, after a tornado, got destroyed. It shows me what a tornado can do to really damage a town and peoples houses. I feel really bad for anybody who was really effected by a tornado. They have to fix everything, and possibly move away.

Crocodiles & Alligators
Ben, 5th grade Mrs. Muntz

I think the Crocodiles & Alligators is the best book that Seymour Simon published because of the awesome, close up pictures. I LOVE the picture where the camera person zooms up right on the eye of the crocodile.

2. I like the book Dogs because I LOVE dogs. I have recently got a dog and I have wanted one all my life! the book taught me so much more facts about dogs that I would have never found out.
3.I thought it was awsome how Seymour Simon wrote that scientists believe that dogs developed from wolves that learned to live close to people and that there are more then 400 breeds in the world! smile smile smile smile smile smile

my favorite Seymour Simon book is extreme earth records.
I like extreme earth records because there are millions of facts about all kinds of interesting places and landforms around the world.
I thought that when Seymour Simon wrote imagine squirting a water pistol off the empire state building and then watching the stream of water fall to the ground. That waterfall would be nothing only about one third of angel falls in Venezuela, earths highest waterfall and I thought that was a really good comparison.

My favorite book is Extreme Earth records. My favorite part of the book is when you talk about The Hottest Place On Earth. I can not believe “the hottest temperature in North America was 134 F and 57 C recorded on July 10, 1913 at Furnace Creek in Death Valley, CA.”

Favorite book: sharks.
Why I like it: Because ever since I read and saw your pictures and your amazing facts I’m now never afraid of sharks anymore.
Evidence: on page 7 it says that sharks have killed fewer people in the united states in the past 100 years than are killed in automobile accidents over a single holiday weekend.

Evidence ; On page 14 it says: ( My writing day begins after breakfast. The hardest part of writing a book is getting started, so I begin by reading over what I wrote the last time and rewriting it. Then I rewrite it again) It makes me write. smile smile smile

I love the book Coral Reefs.
I like it because it reminds me when I went snorkeling in St. Thomas
The picture on page 10 is so cool.
An example is on page 16. I saw a fish that looks just like it!

My favorite book is Extreme Earth Records
My favorite part is when you talk about The Rainiest Place On Earth
I can’t believe on page 29 the Hawaiian Islands get a average of 450 inches (1,143 cm) of rain each year. WOW!!!

Posted by Logan L, 4 Grade, Mrs Billing  on  02/27  at  04:29 PM

My favorite book is snakes

The reason I like this book is because I knew nothing about snakes but by reading this book I learned what they eat

On page 12 it told me they eat deer,  monkeys, and pigs.

Animals Nobody Loves

I like this book because it has a lot of interesting facts about different animals all over the world and why no one would like them

Nobody likes sharks because they are vicious animals that eat many animals in the sea and some sharks will attach humans

My favorite book is cats because they are cute, furry, and interesting animals. I think Seymour Simon did a good job on the books. Did you know cats are related to their relatives like the lion, cougar and the tiger and 5,000 years ago wild cats were tamed in Egypt?
