You know.. honests ive never tried talking like this but i think that i kinda tots like talkin like this... anyway this poetry was the best.. it taught a few younger kids about big words that sometimes i even had to look up in the dictionary just to find a little meaning to all of the poem. I personally got to take myeffort into putting my time into other peoples lives by reading the younger kids this amazing realistic poem. I even thought that i could make my own little thing or two baseball cards on the trip to the bus. You never know how much fun youll have when you realize that you can make a script and rehearse it in front of an audience or just a small family gathering... or you could think out of the box and do some thing totally unexpected! You can do anything you put your mind too! 5 star rating because it gave children knowledge and very good feedback afterwards, so if you ask me you will think i am a total doofus for making all this up.. but i didnt i read the book at least five million times... this was a great book and i recomend it to people that want knowledge. But not all that boring..( makayla salisbury)

This book isn't to my liking but it has a really great overall story and an excellent lesson. It teaches you to build self-confidence and to believe in yourself. I really like how it teaches you that and you can just see it. Not only does it teach self-confidence, but it has a lesson in poetry. I recommend it for teachers, students, and class rooms.

By: Patricia Polacco The book I read was Casey at the Bat. It is a good picture book if you like baseball. It¿s about a boy named Casey that is lazy because he has so much confidence in himself. In the book, his sister tells him to get up or he would be late for his baseball game. He gets there and his team is losing. It¿s Casey¿s turn to bat and with two strikes he swings and misses and they lose again. But it doesn¿t end here it gets more exciting. When he is up again, he swings on his third strike and the picture zooms out to make it look like he hit a home run. If you have confidence and you believe you can achieve, read this book and find out if it is exciting to you! Reviewed by: Calen
