#3rdfor3rd: Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie

Welcome to #3rdfor3rd where I share books that my third graders recommend for other third graders. (Please note that my third graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for third graders.) Read more about this book recommendation series and format here.

Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie

Book recommendation by Sadie.

I just finished reading Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg and illustrated by Matthew Cordell, Whoever reads this book is in for a treat, not only loved the illustrations but it was a was funny, interesting, detailed and in some parts poetic story.

Inside cover:

I had a bad August
A very bad August
As bad as pickle juice on a cookie
As bad as a spider web on your leg
As bad as the black parts of a banana
I hope your August is better
I really do.

A quote from this story is “I like reading Bibi’s letter I read it every single day, which is good. Because reading is important for third grade. I think Bibi’s words are beautiful like the poems we are reading with Mr. Campanelli.”

This book is good for anyone is interested in diaries or journals about the bittersweets of Growing up.

P.S. There are two more books: Like Carrot Juice on a Cupcake and Like Bug Juice on a Burger.
