My Own Copy by Charlotte Cundiff

W loves to bring home her Scholastic order form each month and the Book Fair is the most anticipated event of the year. The review below is written by a fourth grader, Charlotte Cundiff. Isn’t it fantastic that our kids are being taught to read critically? Love.

Keep Reading up with the Joneses! Enjoy!

“I already know what I’m going to order,” she said with a satisfied sigh.  “Eight Keys.”

Thinking back to some of our reading conferences, I wondered aloud, “But you already read that.”

“Yes, but I just have to have my own copy!”

Smiling to myself, thinking this is one of the highest compliments you can pay a book, I suggested, “Well, you definitely need to write a review for that book, then.”
