Reviewed by Mohammed D. (age 8) and Albert C. (age 9)
We like this book because it was really interesting. We wanted to find out what happens on each page. I (Albert) like this book because the illustrations look real. My favorite part is when Gregory drew the garden. I (Mohammed) like this book because Gregory makes something very cool at the end of the book. He creates a beautiful chalk garden and many people come to see it.
We recommend this book to children who are new to a school or who might be lonely. If you have recently moved to another house you might enjoy this book because you might feel the same way. If you like to draw pictures of animals and gardens then you should read this book.
We think that second through fourth graders will be able to read this book because it's not too easy and it's not too hard. The Chalk Box Kid teaches a good lesson. If you liked reading The Ugly Duckling or Charlie the Caterpillar, you will really like reading The Chalk Box Kid.
