I Want My Hat Back - We all loved this book and thought it was very funny...
I really enjoyed reading this book, it's very witty! It makes you laugh especially when the bear tries to act innocent. It is so clever and I recommend it! - Freya

Lunchtime by Rebecca Cobb
'Lunchtime' by Rebecca Cobb encourages children to eat their lunch, by telling them that when you don't eat your meal you will go hungry. The author creates a magical world where the main character is surrounded by animals that all want to eat her food. The book also has lovely illustrations and child-friendly words. It is great for children who don't eat up. - Caleb

The Gift - Carol Ann Duffy
I really liked THE Gift because it left you on a cliff hanger so you could think what happened next. I liked how the pictures were 3D because they jumpeted out to you. I found it a bit sad that she beside where to be buried at a young age. She also kept going back to it and geting it for when she died.

Heart and the Bottle
Lauren: I thought this was for 7 year olds, it was happy at the end, but sad in the middle and I really enjoyed it. My favourite page was the one where the grandpa is reading in the chair and you can see the little pictures of a whale and space. Sophie: This book was sort of sad, but happy at the end. I enjoyed it a lot. My favourite page was the same as Lauren's where you can see the 'curiosities'

Big Bear
We generally liked this book, but thought it was a bit cheesy: it wasn't like Brie, it was like Red Leicester. We liked the drawings - the bit where the bear is dreaming is really cute. we also liked the picture where the bear was sliding down the mountain on his back, with Minik on his tummy :)

Ernest the Moose!
Super nice book - fantastic pictures with really good colours. Awesome ending, easy to read with good aliteration and good flow to the story. We really liked the fold-out last page and how the paper matched what was earlier in the book. We even made some moose antlers with our hands to look like Ernest! We're really happy that we chose it to read and would recommend it. We thought it was aimed at 2-4 year olds, but we still really enjoyed it! We give it 9.5/10 Next week we are reading 'Jim' by Hilaire Belloc

Me and You - Anthony Browne
It was mainly the 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' story, but with a few differences. For example, it's set in a town, not a forest. Goldilocks has her own story this time - she loses her balloon and gets lost and separated from her parents. We liked the pictures. The difference in Goldilocks' black and white pictures and the bears' coloured ones helped us understand the story. The colour made it look happy and the black and white made it look dreary. We still understood the Goldilocks part of the story even though it didn't have any words. We would recommend this story. We give it 9/10
