More Free Throws From the Boys at MRSA...

Hey everyone, it's your friendly neighborhood Iron Guy Carl with more reviews for the March Madness Free Throw Contest. We have more reviews from the third grade classes of Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy, so we'll get right to them, but first, we interrupt this blog post for an important announcement:

Are some of your reviews not showing up on this blog??
Then you need FOLLOWTHESE4!

That's right! With just one dose of FOLLOWTHESE4, your reviews are sure to show up here! OK, all silliness aside, I've had to cut some reviews because they were either waaayyy too short (only 2 sentences) or because they didn't follow the 4 guidelines I set down at the beginning of the contest.We basically need 4 things--the title of the book, the author, a brief summary of the plot, and why you liked the book. Some of the submissions I've got are only plot summaries. I want you to tell us WHY you liked the book! Most of you have done that and done it very well but some haven't and I just can't publish those. I'll also admit that I've let some of you slide, even with today's post, but I can't do that anymore. (MAN,I'm starting to sound like a grownup!!) I want to be sure that we get the best you can give us, so follow those 4 guidelines and your reviews will be sure to show up here. (BTW, you can put the title and author separately from the review but you don't have to. Look back over the reviews and you can see how kids have done them separately or worked them into the reviews)

All right let's hear from the boys! (We'll hear from the girls in the next post)

I am in 3rd grade and for my reading genre project I just read DK Biography: Thomas Jefferson. I really like and recommend this book because as well as a regular history book with facts and dates, it is also a photographic story of Jefferson's life. It includes pictures, paintings, maps, quotes, and really interesting bits of information that helps you get an idea of what his life must have really been like. DK Publishing also writes those 'History of US' books which is very similar in style to this book on Thomas Jefferson. You should check it out, I thought it was great!

Thanks, guys!! These books look good and I'm especially glad to see a nonfiction review here because I firmly believe that nonfiction is not boring--and you've just shown us why!

Girls,I'l lpost your reviews tomorrow and then I'll post the current standings.
