Fifth graders at P.S. 24 in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, New York, wrote these letters to IndyKids.
“No Bag Lunch” is interesting because it informs kids about changes at a school in Chicago. I think that the principal was wrong to ban homemade food. Homemade food is usually better for kids than school lunch. —Julian
I liked “Nature Gets Equal Rights” because it tells us about protecting nature against pollution in Bolivia. It is important to respect, protect and guarantee the rights of Mother Earth. —Jordi Ogando
“A Story of Migration” is important because Karyll’s mom came to the U.S.A. to have a better life. But in real life, people sometimes are abused by the people they work for. Thanks to Karyll for sharing her mom’s story with us. —Muriela
I learned a lot reading “Turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa.” It is not good that there are less jobs and the food prices are growing. I think there should be more jobs to stop poverty. —Mayeli Jimenez Mejia
“Nature Gets Equal Rights” reminds kids that animals and nature are important like kids’ lives. Killing animals and the forest is not good for the earth. Animals help the earth and kids. —Hugo Franco
I disagree with the Chicago principal [“No Bag Lunch”] who banned students from bringing their lunches. Bringing lunch to school is important for kids. —Kathleen
I feel bad for Karyll’s mom [“A Story of Migration”] because her boss treated her bad and she had no friends. I’m glad she escaped and now Karyll can spend time with her mom. —Alejandra Garcia
“No Bag Lunch” is important because it tells us about kids in Chicago who can’t bring lunch to school. I think this is not fair since some kids do not like school lunches and kids should eat healthy lunches from their homes. —Aaliyah Villot
