Picky Kid Pix

I'm 16 Now and I'm Still Pretty Hard to Please.

4th Grade Chapter Books by a Picky 4th Grade Reader December 11, 2011

These are some of my favorite chapter books that I finished reading in fourth grade.

Ruby Holler by Sharon Creech

This is one of my favorite chapter books. This book makes you want to never put it down. My older sister AND my mom recommended it to me but at first I didn’t want to read it. By the third chapter, I really liked it once they got to Ruby Holler.

Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm

I really enjoyed this book because it was about this girl who got separated from her mom and you’ll have to find out more when you read it. If you liked Because of Winn Dixie, you will like this book.

Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

This book is about a dog’s life and he has many adventures with his owners. It’s a book that everyone would like. We read this for Fourth Grade as a class. It’s also a series.

My Holiday Wishlist

As you know Christmas and Hannukah are coming up. Here’s a few things kids like me may like:

  • Cheap but good working video camera. The first two are Flip Video cameras. They are easy to use. The other one is waterproof.
  • If your child has something they like but it’s broken, get it fixed or get a new one for them like a computer, iPod, MP3 player, or a laminator. Beware of the Fellowes laminator. I have one and my friend has one, and they both jammed and broke.

4th Grade Books Recommended by a Fourth Grader September 4, 2011

I was assigned a summer reading project for going into 4th grade and I had to read five books and write about them. These were the books I chose. My favorite book out of all of them is Mr. Popper’s Penguins and I recommend them for kids in fourth grade but also third grade and fifth grade might like them too.

Frindle by Andrew Clements

I liked this book because it was about a boy that was really young and he got famous because he just made up this word, “frindle,” instead of pen.

The Tail of Emily Windsnap series by Liz Kessler

I liked this book because it was about a girl who didn’t even know she was a mermaid but found out during her first swimming lesson.

How To Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell

This book started off as a bet and a boy named Billy had to eat fifteen worms in fifteen days and a boy named Alan had to give him $50 (which was a lot during the olden days) if he succeeded but Alan thought Billy couldn’t do it but found out that he could so Alan had to trick Billy into not eating them.

Top 10: Best Books for 3rd Graders by Me (a 3rd Grade girl who is very picky) March 3, 2011

I’m putting Harry Potter last only because I haven’t finished the whole book. I’m putting Penderwicks first because it’s the best book in the whole world because it’s so funny. Matilda is in 3 on my list because it’s great but I like Penderwicks and Because of Winn Dixie a little bit better. What is your favorite book? Please leave a comment.

10. Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling

Very good for 2nd grade and up. The first book is not scary at all. Once you get to the fourth book, it gets scarier.

9. Cricket in Times Square by George Selden

This was the book that I picked for my book club. My friends loved it. We decorated cricket cages and my mom bought the feeder crickets from the pet store. My crickets got released the next day in my garden but my friend’s cricket lived for a week. Do not buy the crickets ahead of time and get extra because they do not live very long (a day or so). I think it is for grades 3rd through 5th.

8. George’s Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl

This book, in my opinion, is the funniest book of all Roald Dahl’s books. I think it’s so funny because he has to make medicines over and over and over again. For grades 3rd through 4th.

Picky Kid Pix … Softest Tees January 29, 2011

My favorite brand for the softest tees is T2Love. I wear them every day and night. I am super picky about my shirts and clothes and I have to have the softest shirts possible and T2Love fits the bill. Now, these are the only tees I wear besides my soccer jersey because I have to wear it but I’d much rather wear my T2Love there.

T2Love also makes other clothes, so it’s perfect. I have the shorts and hoodie. I am getting the capris and pants next.

My mom first bought them for me at a boutique, Brussel Sprouts Kids, but then their shipment didn’t arrive one season and my mom panicked and found them online for me because otherwise I had trouble getting dressed for school. I am a Picky Kid after all!

If you want to buy them (on sale), check these out by clicking on the image of the shirt:
