    "Matilda is a funny and sad story of a little girl unwanted by her family. She outsmarts them at every turn. If you don't want to imagine the characters, there is a movie by the same name. I think imagination is better though and this one has lots to imagine!"

    "My favorite series to read as a kid, and would recommend for any child up to like the age of 8. Many books in the series so take your pick to read, but in my opinion you really cant go wrong with any of them. The Cat in the Hat may be the classic of the series, and I honestly just sit down and read it sometimes for nostalgia haha."

    "I am a huge fan of Beverly Cleary and couldn't wait to introduce her stories to my kids. This book is geared more for independent readers in grades 3 and up, so unless a younger child is a really advanced reader, I wouldn't recommend it until they are older. But it is a great story and kids with siblings will really relate to it. "
