What's Abigail Reading? Mallory on the Move

Abigail has been reading up a storm so far this year. She's showing a new interest in reading, sparked by reading to her mother every evening. I think she really enjoys some alone time with mom. Sometimes Stephanie will read to her, too. Abby has been reading Mallory on the Move!, by Laurie Friedman. Let's see what she had to say about it.

Here's what Abigail says the book is about.

"The book is about a girl named Mallory and her family. Mallory and her family move to a place called Wish Pond Road but when Mallory finds out that she is moving she gets all upset because she doesn't want to leave her best friend MaryAnn. Then when they get their new house they show them their rooms. Mallory’s brother gets a bigger room than her so then she complains that her brother gets a bigger room. Next she meets a girl next door named Winnie.

"Mallory asked her if she wanted to come to the wish pond with her but she just stared and said NO! Then MaryAnn her best friend came over to spend the weekend. They had a lot of fun. They painted their nails purple and Mallory gave MaryAnn a tour of the house. Then MaryAnn said she wanted to see the wish pond.

"When they were walking to the wish pond Joey, her other next door neighbor, asked if he could come along too, and she said yes. Then MaryAnn asked if he wanted to play their favorite game where they put out food on the table and spin around. Whatever food they get they have to try it. When it was Joey’s turn he had to try cat food. He said it was disgusting and then he went home. The last day that MaryAnn was there, she heard her mom and Mallory’s mom say goodbye then when it was time to go MaryAnn hid Mallory in a box in her car to go home with her."

Here's what Abigail liked best about the book.

"I really liked when Joey ate the cat food, because it was funny. When I was two I ate some cat food and it was delicious!"

Was there anything that Abigail did not like about the book?

"I did not like when Mallory hides in the car, because it is not right to leave home."

So, how did Abigail rate Mallory on the Move!, by Laurie Friedman?

She gave it four and a half out of five dolphins.
