Felicity The Magnificent
I liked this book because it was about girls and I am a girl. The three girls in this story were named Caroline, Beth, and Eddie. It was the last few weeks of school and everbody was excited. There was going to be a strawberry festival. Caroline got to be on the float with the Strawberry Queen. The Strawberry Queen fainted, and so Caroline got to be the Strawberry Queen. -by Felicity

Read with Ainsley (7). She selected this one at a recent school book fair. Although I enjoyed this book (ditto Ainsley), I didn't like it as much as Naylor's Alice books. I read those in Library School and LOVED them.

I did task 10.2. I read a book called girl's rule. It was about 3 girls who start a carwash so that they can be in the Strawberry festival parade. They go up against 4 boys and eventually turn out to be friends.

I think this book was great for people in my grade or in my age because its about teenage boys and girls.

If U want to read a book with book worms, a bunch of strawberries, fake termites, drama, and car washes, go ahead.

I'm not a tween but I read this anyway. It's cute and fun, and little girls should like it.

What happens when you mix 3 girls 4 boys and a donation competition? To find out, one must read Girls Rule! by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. The suspense Naylor puts in it keeps readers wanting to read. For example, you don't find out until the very end whether the kids raise enough money. The dialogue of the characters is very similar to what kids in the real world would say. For instance, the mother to the boys calls and asks how the boys are. The boy then replies that, "'Peter's been poisoned, Jak ...more

Thoroughly and completely enjoyed this series, which I read to my daughters through Nov & Dec at bedtime. Love, love, love Phyllis Reynolds Naylor for elementary aged readers. Love, love, love this series for the Brady-bunch era of hijinx between children... Love, love, love that neither the boys nor the girls are clear-case winners of the "war", though, my daughters do believe there was a winner. Whole-heartedly recommend as a family read and to all elementary-aged readers.

SUMMER IS AROUND the corner, and the battle between the Malloys and the Hatfords is heating up! They are all assigned to earn at least $20 if they want to be in the strawberry festival or eat all they can eat to earn money for the hospital. The families decide to not earn money with each other. Do you think that might happen or not? What do you think will happen with this adventurous story? I recommend this book to all ages!!!

This story is about 3 girls that move to West Virginia and want to be in the aunnual Strawberry Festival Parade. Inorder to do that they each have to earn $20.They also have compitition with the Hatford brothers. They too want to be in the parade. At the end they all get to be in the parade and became friends.I like this story because it shows that even though you dislike a person you still care for them.

i thought the book was good because i agree with the girls "girls do rule" wouldnt you agree? and because it was like a life...(kids think like that).Theres always compatition between people; it doesnt realy matter what race or gender you are. people always hate on what they cant have. but anyways the book was realy good. i realy enjoyed it, and it made me laugh.

lol this is a juvenile book, something i read in sixth grade, but it's still pretty nice if you want something to read. it's part of a series that you don't have to read in order, but it's nice to, as they make small references to past books in the series. start with 'the boys start the war' if you want to start at the start, or go ahead and read 'girls rule'.
A family of grade school brothers and a family of sisters aspire to raise $ for a local hospital. They taunt each other and cause difficulty to the adults with no concerns at all.

They eventually get hosed and a gal ends up on a parade float in her bathing suit. She sends out a photo of herself.
