He has a mother, a father, and three older siblings. my favorite part is when Almonzo gets his own colt, named Starlight. Please check out this great book in the library. THANKS!

    Now, maybe not ALL of you may want to read this book, but I really enjoyed “Claudia and Mean Janine” from The Baby-sitters Club series. It is by Ann M. Martin and is a realistic fiction book. Claudia is always jealous of her older sister, Janine. But when Mimi, the girls grandmother, has a stroke, Claudia and her sister try to help her and become closer. What happens next? Go to our school library to check it out!
