I would recommend Katherine Paterson to read to use because she is a good reader. Katherine Paterson makes lots of books herself. The books she makes will make kids adults like her books like Bridge of the Terabithia.
Other people will like Mrs. Paterson because she a good books writer and like to write book kids like. People have to like Katherine Paterson because of her books my class likes her.

Yes i would introduc Mrs.Katherine Paterson to other young readers because i know that other young readers my age would like the characters in her books and how she writes her story. The hints that she gives readers when the climax of the story is about to happen will grab and interest the reader to keep reading along. When the students my age find out about Mrs.Katherine Paterson the will become addicted to her books not able to stop reading once they began. Thats why i think it would be a good idea to tell young readers about Mrs.Katherine Paterson and her books.

I think that her books are for children. You say why? Because her books are all about children. Not just any child though children from around the world teens tweens and preteens. Also foster, poor, miserable, rude, and adventurous children. So really I think children will relate to what she writes. Also she writes for and about children only or maybe for adults and we might just know.

I would recommend Katherine Paterson to children my age because she writes excellent books and she doesn’t stay with one kind of genre because some of her books are realistic fiction and some of them have some genres mixed together. I think that they would like her books because once they read one books, they would start reading more and more of them each day, like if they were addicted to them. I also think that they would like her books because Katherine Paterson is an excellent reader and she puts a lot of detail in her books.

Yes I would recommend Katherine Paterson because her writing is so fun to read. You feel like you are really there in the story with her characters. Her characters are funny and you feel like you really know them. Her writing is very detailed and creative and that’s why I love reading her stories. Once you read one of her books you just want to read more and more. My evidence is that almost every one in the 6 grade enjoyed reading her books. My favorite books by Katherine Paterson are Great Gilly Hopkins and Bridge to Terabithia.

Eliani Caban said...

Will I think yes because her she is a good writer she puts little kids under 13 maybe in her books. For example like Vinnie, mason, and Lupe. They will enjoy her writing, because she is very interesting and they way she choices her words

Danielle said...

I would recommend Katherine Patterson books to readers because her books makes feel the characters emotions just like when Leslie died in Bridge To Terabithia.I was really mad and I wanted to cry I felt just like Jess. I also would recommend Katherine Patterson’s books to readers my age because I like her themes here are three themes that I liked relationship, death and friendship and those are the most themes that are shown in her stories.

I would recommend Katherine Paterson to readers my age, because Katherine Paterson’s books are just right books, her books don’t use hard words you do not under stand. Also another good thing about Katherine’s books is that she knows how to write for children because she has kids so she knows what we like. Also her stories are so funny, like in the Great Gilly Hopkins when Gilly but the gum on the car door. Katherine Paterson put her life experts.

Marcus said...

I would recommend that I liked the books she wrote. I like the way she puts a lot of effort in her writings. That’s just one thing that I don’t do because sometimes when I cannot thin of nothing I get mad and clueless. But looking at a writer like her is amazing because I can’t write to page 1- 100 pages.

Jariel Soto:

Katherine Paterson is a good writer, most of her books are for readers my age. The reason I think she writes books for young adults are because since she has a Son, she can dedicate the stories to her son. Young readers will enjoy her personification and her author skills. She is a interesting Author, most of her books have a similar problem to a different situation . Some of her books have a “Text to world connection.” Every time I read one of her book’s there is always a similar story with the same Author. I enjoy reading Katherine Paterson book’s, they are full with energy and exciting events. Most readers that are my age will enjoy Katherine Paterson’s books, because if I enjoy them. Other kids will also!

I would recommend Katherine Paterson to readers my age because kids my age are going through things that we are going through today they might have lost and important person in her life like in Flip Flop Girl, Vinnie lost her father. Will young readers will enjoy about Katherine Paterson books they will love the way she explains things like when put died in Jip His Story the slave catcher killed put. But what they will love about Katherine Paterson books is that she can write about what have gone in her life and what things can or will becoming there will be very hard challenges in life like someone s death it is not hard.

I recommend people to read Katherine Paterson’s books because they are real good. Like in Bridge to Terabithia that was good book. They will probably like it depending on what type of genre it is about. I my mom she will probably read Flip-flop girl or Bridge to Terabithia because she likes drama books. My brother would like it to read Katherine Paterson’s because he likes mystery books and adventure

Yes I would recommend Katherine Paterson to young reader because she inspires me to do what I believe is right. The reason I say this is because when Katherine Paterson writes her books the characters in her books face a problem or someone in their life is gone that they never knew and they go on a journey to find that person and they don’t stop unless they find out about that person or find that person and that tells me whatever I want do not give up to get it.
Other adult readers will enjoy that her books are interesting and her characters are very fun to learn about and her books will take you on a quest to find more about her books and why she writes them.

Would you recommend Katherine Paterson to readers your age?

I will recommend Katherine Paterson my age because there's no need to lie about your age and she writes those books for children. Her books are about children like Jacob have I loved.
What they will enjoy is the basics of Katherine Paterson books and how she lives her life about writing those kinds of true books.

Yes I would because she writes books that at the same time they can be for adults but for children too. Also because her stories all have to do with kids if they are slaves or that they have no parents or anything else. Like in the book jip; his story, he was a slave but also was abandon by his mother.
They will also enjoy that Katherine Paterson love to write books with her imagination, like Bridge to Terabithia that book was one of the books that you and anybody else would want to read because, there is lots of adventure in there, also the Great Gilly Hopkins know that book is funny. Also that not all her books have to do with fun and other things some of them are also really sad like Lyddie she has to go to work to pay her fathers dept she has to and leave her family.
That’s why you should read Katherine Paterson books trust me they are great.

I would recommend Katherine Paterson to readers my age, because, her books are for readers of all ages, and the best age is kids my age or younger, because people could really connect with the characters in her stories.

What young-adult readers will enjoy about Katherine Paterson’s books, is that in her books you could always connect with the characters, no matter what age you are, because the characters in her books are all different ages, and her stories are also interesting. You can also connect with the characters experiences in her stories.

Yes, I would recommend Katherine Paterson’s book to readers my age because she is a good author. I think Katherine Paterson just is not an author for students my age but for everyone. She is good author, so she uses the readers point of view so she the books she uses should be for everyone. When she writes, you can relate to her writing so that is why I would recommend Katherine Paterson to readers my age. In Flip Flop Girls, the main character Vinnie is almost the same age as me. She also has some problems related to other people and young adults. Her writing would make young readers enjoy her book. She just does not write for people my age but for everyone including young adults. Her books would be appropriate for young adults because her books have efficient words and you can relate to other books.

Ricardo said...

I would recommend her books because she has the best books. the reason why is that Katherine Paterson puts a lot of conflict in to her books and a lot of story to.
Adults read her books because the books have the story line that can just grab you and won't let go until you finish the book.

Yes other readers will enjoy her books because there exciting and also people would really like to keep reading because of that excitement.

yes i would show this book to students my age better yet i already did. And i would show this book to them because miss Paterson is a good impression for kids like me to read books because There are not alot of good writers like her that is what i think. if you read her books it aspired the reader what to read so if i show it to readers like me it will aspire them to. young adults would enjoy miss Paterson writing is that how she uses machour words and so much things you would kill to find out about.And they would enjoy it how they would notice that she is a good writing machine because what you want to read is in her books.

Yes, I would recommend that Katherine Patterson to reader’s my age because she uses an awesome vocabulary bank. She also uses words that sixth grader’s can understand. Katherine Patterson uses words like yes’m, tiny, and gorgeous. Katherine Patterson uses figurative language.

I think that young adults will enjoy the way she writes because she has a nice word bank. Another reason why I think that the young adults will enjoy he writing is because she gives you clues to figure out the chapter will be about. Katherine Patterson does not tell you every little detail. My last reason why I think that the young adults will enjoy her writing is because she gives you the time and year that it is for example yes’m. No one uses the word yes’m any more so that tells you that that was the 80’s

Response: Yes, because she inspires people by writing interesting books. She can really capture someone's attention when she writes a book. Bridge To Terabithia was a wonderful example. It shows that children have an imagination that they use to make a whole new world. People can say stuff about you like saying your a weird person, but when you prove them wrong they will be humiliated because of the fact that you know something they don't.
Parents can't see why kids do the things they do. Kids have an imagination parents don't.

dale cooper said...

I believe yes that Katherine Paterson’s books are indeed for kids my age and my grade why cause of the way she writes we can understand What she’s talking about. Also the other reason why is cause all the books that she’s rote didn’t have a grown up character she had a kid. The reason why she picked a kid and why this is a book for me and my class is cause one is she can put more character into the kid who’s the character and he’s in like six or fifth or seventh. A kid could read this book and knows exactly what she is talking about cause we are kids. A kid can read this book and develop feeling for it cause she or he knows what Katherine is writing about and might smile or cry or be very happy for the character.
