This is the second Trey Jones book. In this book, Trey raps every word like a rap song. It is kind of silly annoying. I think my parents would be annoyed if I did that.
Trey raps about everything from school to his sisters. He is being creative in how he uses his words. He also dresses like a rapper with rings and jewelry.
I liked this book because I like it when people are creative with their words. I recommend to my classmates too. The boys will find it funny.
Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2017 (1/27/17) is in its fourth year and was founded by Valarie Budayr from Jump Into A Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom. Our mission is to raise awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in home and school bookshelves while also working diligently to get more of these types of books into the hands of young readers, parents and educators.
Despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color, only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content. Using the Multicultural Children’s Book Day holiday, the MCBD Team is on a mission to change all of that.
We’d like to also give a shout-out to MCBD’s impressive CoHost Team who not only hosts the book review link-up on celebration day, but who also works tirelessly to spread the word of this event. View our CoHosts HERE.
