Diary of a Wimpy Kid

The book Diary of a Wimpy Kid is well written for people who like humor. It's by Jeff Kinney. I like this book because it has funny pictures and I like his style of writing. It's a little easy, but I like it. This book made me feel fun and happy because it could make me laugh sometimes.

There's lots of people that change in this book, but Greg is one of the most important. Greg was good and kind to Manny his little brother, but then half way through Manny does bad stuff and Greg gets blamed for it. So Greg stops being kind.

There's lots of problems in this book, but the main one is his life. He writes what happens to him in his diary. If I could change it I would change the part when they go treat or treating and get pushed by the bullies and throw toilet paper over his grandma's house. It doesn't really go with the book. There's lots of messages, but the important one is don't be a wimp like Greg and don't do stuff that you don't need to do.

The Million Dollar Kick

The Million Dollar Kick, by Dan Gutman is a good and well written book.This book has exciting parts and some (so close) part. Like when she was going to shoot the million dollar shot. This book made me feel excited and nervous at some parts. This book is sort of simpler to a penalty I had to shoot and if I scored we would win the tournament. This book is a just right book for me because I only get stuck on a word like every three chapters.

Briana changed threw the book. She was mean in the beginning because she was suppose to shoot the million dollar kick. Then she stopped because she thought if she was nice she might get some the money and she wanted to be on TV. The coach for the high school soccer team said no when Whisper asked if she could practice with them. The coach said never. Then after she scored the million dollar kick, he asked if she wanted to be on the team. She said OK, when I am in ninth grade.

The problem of the story is Briana entered the million dollar kick against a professional goalie, but you have to be older than 12 to enter. So she put in her sisters name in. Then she got picked and Whisper doesn't know how to play soccer. The last time she played was when she was four and she scored an own goal. So she needs a person to teach her. Then Ellie a teenaged girl from the high school soccer team offered to help her. I think the author's message is to never give up on anything until you tried a million times.

Babe and Me

For my reading responds, I am doing Babe and Me. Its by Dan Gutman. The book is a adventure, happy, and nervous story. They go back in time to 1932 world series. This book made me feel nervous and happy because there was times when they thought they wouldn't make it and when it made me feel happy was when they made it to the world series. This book reminded me of when I played a game and I wasn't good at it, but then I became good at it because I learned more stuff about it. This book was a just right book because I could understand what was happening and there was only about five or six hard words in the book.


Joe and the dad changed during the story. They never played and had fun together like they did in the book. They changed when they were together because they never were together to play and when they were together they had fun.

The problem is that Joe wants to see if Babe called his shot in the 1932 world series and the dad had a (personal) choice. He could stay in NY because he has a lot of money or (In 1932,$5000) he could go back with Joe. If I could change part of the story it would be when Joe went with Babe to the game. I would make it be Joe played with the NY Yankees like in the book Honas and Me. I think the author's message is don't be self fish because first in the story Joe and the dad wanted Babe's ball that he called his shot. At the end the gave the baseball back to the team.
