Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen Cover Image

Title: Born to Run

Comments:
Whether you run, bike, swim, or are just a couch potato, this is a great book. It mainly revolves around the ancient and mysterious running tribe of the Mexican Copper Canyons, the Tarahumara, and the American hermit, Caballo Blanco, who has befriended the tribe and converted to their peaceful and healthy culture. However, the author makes tactful and appropriate digressions into various aspects of running, such as nutrition, technique, and history. Culminating in an incredibly suspenseful race between the legendary Tarahumara distance runners and the greatest American ultramarathoners, this book is a great window into the running life, but also has an optimistic undertone of achieving world peace and equality between all cultures.

Title: Mouse's First Christmas

Comments:
Mouse's First Christmas is just like the book Mouse's First Day of School. Except it's Christmas! One thing I like about this book is that it has a lot of Christmas adjectives. Like Mouse saw something bright and flickery. It was a candle. This is sort of like a Christmas surprise book. I think this is for little children who want to know more about Christmas. I enjoyed this jolly Christmas book, and I hope you will too.

Title: The Borrowed Hanukkah Latkes

Comments:
This book was a great one. I do not celebrate Hanukkah, but for some reason I got interested when I read this book. I learned about latkes. They are like a pancake but made up out of potato. The thing I like about this book is that it had friendship. I think this book is for kids who want to know when a place is full it always has another place for itself. I enjoyed this bright book and I hope you will too.
