  1. Dear B4,

    What a great post. I especially like your post recomendations. Our class looked at two of the posts you had listed. We looked at Iconic Kiwi Foods then we looked at Meet our Mascot Quicksilver and his friends. They were really enjoyable.

    Oh my! I almost forgot to inrouduce myself. I am Millie from 4KJ and I'm very pleased to be commenting on this very well known blog. Greetings!

    Here are some things about myself:
    ♥ I love reading and writing.

    ♥ I am in a family of four with a mum, dad and brother.
    ♥ My favourite books are the Harry Potter series, The Baby-Sitters Club series and the Alice Miranda series.

    Have you got anything in common with me?

    Enjoy being in the spotlight this week,
    Millie (4KJ)
    P.S Even though you believe pavlova was invented in New Zealand, nothing will change Australia's mind! :-D

    1. Dear Millie,

      I will tell you a bit about our selves. Kaeleb likes playing PSP (play station portorble)

  2. Dear B4,

    Greetings! I am Skye from 4KJ, Australia.

    Anyway, what a fabulous post. I enjoyed looking at all the posts you recommended. I especially liked the post about the foods you eat. It made me hungry.

    It was interesting to find out that Australia and New Zealand fight over who invented pavlova. We are doing projects on Australian food and my group is doing pavlova. I always thought that pavlova came from Australia. Who knows who invented it.

    I will tell you a bit about myself:

    ♥ I like pop music, especially dancing to it.
    ♥ I like reading Go Girl.
    ♥ I enjoy writing about what goes on in my life.
    ♥ I love blogging and I have a blog and the address is:
    ♥ I like spending time with friends and family.
    ♥ I like playing netball and speaking of netball I do it and my team has made it into the grand final.
    ♥ I like songs by Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. I also like a song called Set It Off by Timomatic.

    Do you like any of these things?
    What are your favourite songs?
    What books do you like to read?

    Your blogging buddy,

    Skye (4KJ)
