Today I will be telling you about a book called Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo. You might know some of her other books – The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, The Tale of Despereaux, Because of Winn-Dixie and Flora and Ulysses.
This is a book about a girl called Raymie Clark. Her friend calls her Raymie Nightingale because she always carries a book about Florence Nightingale. Raymie’s father moves away and she enters a contest to get her face in the newspaper to make him proud and come back. This book is about friendship, family and loss. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it. Keep your eyes peeled for it in our school library.
