HOMEWORK due this Friday 8/9

Dear 3/4H

Do you have a favourite book that you like to read again and again?

Tell me it’s name and why you like it so much!

When you were little, before you started school, what was your favourite book that someone read to you?

My favourite fairy tale was Cinderella and I loved my Disney book with pictures from the movie. This story has magic, a castle, lovely dresses, a wedding and they all live happily ever after! Wonderful!
