The Hula Hoopin’ Queen
The Hula-Hoopin Queen is about a girl named Kameeka who loves to hula-hoop. She wants to be the Hula-Hoopin Queen of 139th Street but she has to beat her friend Jamara. Her mom won’t let her go out because she needs to help get ready for her neighbor, Miz Adeline’s birthday party. She helps but she messes up the cake so she has to go get more sugar and sees Jamara hula-hoopin’. They start the contest but then she remembers the birthday cake and runs home with the sugar. It is too late. Her mom is really mad and makes her tell Miz Adeline why there is no cake. Everyone shows up for the party. The baker brings doughnuts. Kameeka has a great idea for those doughnuts. Miz Adeline turns out to have the hula-hoopin’ itch too!
I like this book because it is all about hula-hooping and I like to hula-hoop too! I like the party and that Miz Adeline still loves to hula-hoop and is really great at it even though she is an older lady. Both Kameeka and Jamara have to admit she is a hula hoopin’ queen. As soon as I finished reading it, I had to get up and hula-hoop!
