"Because of Winn-Dixie" by Kate DiCamillo

Because of Winn-Dixie is written by Kate Di Camillo, and is about a girl named India Opal Buloni, who moves to Florida with her father. One day India goes to Winn Dixie-the super market, and finds a very nice and friendly dog there. She names the dog Winn-Dixie. There are some sad parts to the story, but it also makes you feel goodl

Because of Winn-Dixie is a book that I think 3rd graders could read, and 2nd graders, if they are willing to.  I thought it was a very good book. It is like one of those feel-good books that I really love.

"Diary of a Wimpy Kid" by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is about a middle grade boy named Greg Heffley, who has a bratty little brother named Manny, an annoying older brother called Rodrick, and parents who absolutely love Manny. And then there is the cheese touch…..

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is written by Jeff Kinney, and is a very popular series. I used to not want to read them, but my friend talked me into reading them. And I thought they were the best books ever! They are so funny! I started reading the books in 1st grade, but I think you can truly understand them when you are in 2nd grade and up.
