    My class at school had a new favorite book!

    WE thought it had a lot of good things to talk about. We tried radishes and some thought they were good! We kept wanting to read more because it was soooooo good! We liked Naomi's lists and how she would be thinking. We thought the soap carving was really neat! Everyone loved the book and is our favorite book forever! Pam Munoz Ryan is the best author ever!
