In Penny and her Marble, Penny took a walk with her doll in a stroller. On her walk, she came across a small blue marble on someone’s lawn. She quickly picked it up and ran home. She was so nervous that someone would find out she took it. The next day she took another walk. Read the book to see why?
This book is good. It is good because it has great pictures, some kind of lesson. Also, I could read it fluently. Lastly, it used great describing words, like sky-blue to describe the color of a marble instead of just saying blue. It is always good when kids can learn a lesson from reading a book. In this story, it is a moral lesson, and the characters have to think about doing the right thing, even if no one is watching.
I think you should read this book to see what happens next.
