This is a real cute story about Bluebonnet, the armadillo, trying to find her aunt at the State Fair of Texas. She has many adventures which include being mistaken for a football and riding a roller coaster. In addition, it gives information about the State Fair of Texas.


“Well first, I didn’t like the pictures because they were in black and white and it was boring. I think they should have color. I liked Bluebonnet; she had so much fun trying to find her Aunt at the State Fair. She got on a football field by mistake and the players thought she was the football and chased her. That was funny. Her Aunt worked at the State Fair and left her clues as to how to find her. Bluebonnet met up with a rabbit that was lost and needed to find his son. His son was a real boy. They finally found the Aunt and boy and Bluebonnet decided to stay at the fair and work with all his friends.”


Well, as Zoey said she didn’t like the pictures because they weren’t in color. I think in order to keep children’s attention pictures should be bright and colorful. As you can tell, she did like the story itself of “Bluebonnet at The State Fair of Texas.”
