Garden International School Malaysia blog book review Y3 featured image

Here are the books we love.
Some about friendship, adventure and magic;
Funny, scary, enchanting,
Sometimes dramatic, suspenseful and tragic.
We want to share them with you,
So you can experience yourselves,
The laughter, the sorrows, the thrills,
Adventures of people, witches or elves.

You will find them in bookshops, online, at home,
In our library or your classroom little nooks.
So don’t be shy, grab one of them,
And let’s spread the love of reading books!

The Year 3 teachers from Garden International School would love to share a few enthralling books that are totally worth putting down your iPad and becoming lost in various storylines.

You will find them in our Primary Library so if we have managed to awaken your interest, you can borrow these books anytime.

Hopefully you will find them as fascinating and engaging as we did.

Remember to check out our Book Recommendations board, situated on the ground floor between Year 1 and Year 2 area, for more suggestions on what to read.

Happy reading!

 

Matilda by Roald Dahl

 

Garden International School Malaysia blog book review Matilda

Matilda’s parents owned quite a nice house with three bedrooms upstairs, while on the ground floor there was a dining-room and a living-room and a kitchen. Her father was a dealer in second-hand cars and it seemed he did pretty well at it. ‘Sawdust,’ he would say proudly, ‘is one of the great secrets of my success. And it costs me nothing. I get it free from the sawmill.’
‘What do you use it for?’ Matilda asked him.
‘Ha!’ the father said. ‘Wouldn’t you like to know.’
‘I don’t see how sawdust can help you to sell second-hand cars, Daddy.’
‘That’s because you’re an ignorant little twit,’ the father said.

“This is one of my favourite books because it is about a girl who loves to learn and is a kind and wonderful friend to her classmates. I also love the character of Miss Honey as she is so warm and caring.” – Ms Ellen, Year 3 teacher

 

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

 

Garden International School Malaysia blog book review The One And Only Ivan

“Hello. I am Ivan. I am a gorilla. It’s not as easy as it looks. People call me the Freeway Gorilla. The Ape at Exit 8. The One and Only Ivan. Mighty Silverback. The names are mine, but they’re not me. I am Ivan, just Ivan, only Ivan. Humans waste words. They toss them like banana peels and leave them to rot. Everyone knows the peels are the best part.” – Ms Stockley, Year 3 teacher

 

 

 

Skellig by David Almond

Garden International School Malaysia blog book review Skellig

“I found him in the garage on a Sunday afternoon. It was the day after we moved into Falconer Road. The winter was ending. Mum had said we’d be moving just in time for the spring. Nobody else was there. Just me. The others were inside the house with Dr. Death, worrying about the baby. He was lying there in the darkness behind the tea chests, in the dust and dirt. It was as if he’d been there forever. He was filthy and pale and dried out and I thought he was dead. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I’d soon begin to see the truth about him, that there’d never been another creature like him in the world.” – Mr Ben, Year 3 teacher
