Book Review!

WALT: condense key ideas and rephrase in my own words!


Story:Pinata Day
By: Jill MacGregor
Story Review by: Skye

A Pinata is made of card boxes, balloons, cartons. They are used for special occasion. They make Pinatas for Birthdays and special occasions. All ages will enjoy smashing the Pinata. Inside a pinata is sweets, Chocolates. I agree that people use Pinatas for different occasions. Making a Pinata is hard because you have to wait a few days to decorate the pinata because of the wet glue.
