Book Title: "The Signmaker's Assistant" by Tedd Arnold

1st Review by Gabby Vasquez
Who? The main character is called Norman. Norman tricked the townspeople. The townspeople did whatever the signs said.
What? In the book, Norman made funny signs. Some signs said, "Donate your money in a trash can." Some said, "Eat your hats." Some even said, "Dump trash in a supermarket." Because he did that, he made a sorry sign.
When? The story takes place in the present.
Why? I like the book because it had funny signs.

2nd Review by Keiana Vreyens
Who? The main character is Norman. Norman is young. He thinks stuff will be funny.
What? In "The Signmaker's Assistant, the signmaker makes beautiful signs. When the signmaker goes to a town to paint a sign, Norman make signs that he thinks are funny but are not funny.
When? "The Signmaker's Assistant" looks like it happens in present time.
Why? I liked "The Signmaker's Assistant" because it teaches us a big lesson.
Where? See drawing below

Book Title: "Cowboys" by Lucille Recht Penner

1st Review by Angela Levie
I decided to read this book because...I wanted to know what cowboys do. The topic of this book is...about a cattle drive.
One interesting thing I learned from this book is...that cowboys travel for months on horseback. If I ever did that, the moment that I get off, I would fall to the ground.
I think the author is a good writer because...she wrote the interesting book, "Cowboys." One person who would enjoy this book is...a cowboy or a person who likes cowboys...because...a cowboy would like a story about him or someone who wants to learn more about cowboys.
Here are two things you can do if you want to learn more about this book's topic.
1. Try to find it at your local library.
2. See below
