This book is about Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton's duel. Burr and Hamiliton were ready to fight to the death because they were through fighting and then Burr had enough and called a duel. The art is made using ink with water colors. I liked the book but I think the authors could have thrown more facts into the book.

Amelia Makes a Movie is a story about a boy and a girl who makes a movie about magic. The artist uses colorful pictures and bright colors. My favorite part was when the boy flies in and says, "Have no fear, Superkid is here!" I would recommend this book to other 3rd graders because it's very funny and colorful. It is a great book!

Zemach, Kaethe. Mrs. McCaw Learns to Draw. Scholastic: 2008. ISBN:
Mrs. McCaw Learns to Draw is about a boy who doesn't do a very good job in school but his teacher helps him understand. The students thought that Ms. McCaw could do anything. One day Ms. McCaw tries to draw a face from the side and she couldn't.
I think 2nd graders would enjoy this book. I think a person who likes to draw and wants to learn more should read this book.
