Book: "The Boxcar Children" by Gertrude Chandler Warner
Would you recommend this book to a friend?
Yes, I think they should read it because it's a cool story. It's about four children who find a boxcar. One of them wins a race for $25, and it was back in the olden days so that was a lot of money.
Do you read a lot?
Yes, mostly at school and at home.
Why should people read?
Well, you have to read. It's part of your homework and if you don't read, you get a bad grade.
