“I love Pink-delicious because her favourite colour is pink—just like mine! I love her because I like people the way they are.”

Smithsonian Children’s Illustrated Animal Atlas

“I love it because I want to travel the world and see all the different animals when I get big.”

It’s a Mitig!

“I like trying to remember the Ojibwe words to match the pictures."

The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet!

“Funniest book. Made me laugh from front to end.”

Dog Man series

“It’s just so silly and filled with words I’m not allowed to say in real life! Like potty words! It’s so funny when Petey says to Dippy, ‘I think I'll call you Poo-Poo Head.’”

The Book With No Pictures

“It is the funniest book I’ve ever read. Everyone in my school wanted to read it, even kids from 5th grade. Completely random things that happen are always the best. The funniest part was the robot monkey, but I won’t tell more because I don’t want to spoil it.”

Harry Potter series

“It’s full of friendship, mystery, adventure, and so much more.”

Mac B., Kid Spy #1: Mac Undercover

“This book is really funny, there’s almost a laugh on every page. I like the Queen’s corgis, especially Freddie. And sometimes there are cool facts. You can look it up. (That’s one of Mac’s catchphrases.)”

Jack and the Geniuses: At the Bottom of the World

“I like reading this book because it teaches you a lot about science, lots of adventure and fun, and talks a little bit about jealousy.”

The Witches

“I liked the characters and theme, and it was unique and different. The story was funny and very interesting, and everything that happened was unexpected—it kept my attention the whole time.”
