Adventures in Science: Human Body

Little brother was asked to review this interactive book by the publisher. He anxiously waited for it! The box was a little damaged but nothing was broken. Here is his review…

This book came with a build your own skeleton, poster that you put body parts on and some trading cards.

I enjoyed building the skeleton and learning where body parts are. Did you know the intestines are the body’s dump truck? You can read about different parts of the body and learn facts about it. On the eye page, they talk about color blind. The cards are easy to read but the book is a little bit hard. Because it has hard words and a lot of words on the pages. I needed help to read it.

I think people who don’t know about body parts would like this. I think the book is for kids older than first grade but first grade can build skeleton and do poster.

Super Saurus saves kindergarten

By Deborah Underwood

Illustrated by Ned Young

Reviewed by Little Brother

Deborah Underwood is my favorite author! I love Cat, the Baddies, the Quiet Books and now Arnold, the amazing Super Saurus! In this book, Super Saurus is going to kindergarten. He is a Dino superhero protecting the kindergarten from Zorgo. But Zorgo is their teacher. He is not a bad guy. Super Saurus has a great imagination!

I like that Zorgo is actually his teacher. I like the pictures. They help me imagine what is going on. I wish I could be a Super Hero. I also like raisins. I want to join his snack time and get a pet lizard!

I think kids who want to be Superheroes will like this book. Kids that are going to kindergarten will learn kindergarten is not scary.

😈😈😈😈😈 haha 🦕🦕🦕🦖🦎🦖

We borrowed this from the library!

Paw Patrol: Rescue Time

Review by Annoying Little Brother

Review Book provided by Media Masters Publicity

I really like Paw Patrol and was excited to review this book. It comes with a projector watch that puts images from the book on the wall. The watch is more fun than the book. It is kind of hard to read the book and project images at the same time.

You can use the watch to tell your own story of the Paw Patrol Adventure.

This is not a book a new reader would read solo. I need help with the written parts. The font is small and there are a lot of words on the pages! But with a grownup I could do it.

I think kids who like Paw Patrol would like this book and especially the watch.

Hello Goodbye Dog

Review by Annoying Little Brother

Book received to review for Multicultural Children’s Book Day

This is a good book about a kid in a wheelchair and the dog comes to school everyday and they make the dog leave. The dog goes to therapy school and becomes a therapy dog. Now the dog can go to class and not leave. The dog listens to kids read.

Kids in wheelchairs will enjoy this book and kids with crutches. Kids who want to know more about therapy dogs will like this book.

I learned about therapy dogs. They are cool. It is neat that a dog could help you out like that.

Review by Annoying Little Brother

National Geographic Kids sent my sister this book. I took it. I like dinosaurs. This is a big book on dinosaurs. It breaks them up by their families. Each page has facts on a dinosaurs. It has an illustration of what they think it look like. They are very different than what I thought. It shows you how a big a dinosaur was compared to an adult.

I like that it is talking about dinosaurs. It shows fossils and how they are made.

This would be a good present for a kid who likes dinosaurs. Teachers should have this. Not for little kids or babies but big kids like first grade and older.

Here comes Teacher Cat

By Deborah Underwood

Pictures by Claudia Rueda

Review by Annoying Little Brother (or Amazingly Awesome Little Brother)

I like Cat. His adventures are silly. In this book, he is a substitute teacher. He is a messy teacher. All he wants to do is take a nap but they don’t let you do that at school all day. His students like him.

I like Cat adventures because they are silly. The pictures tell an extra story. Cat makes lots of silly faces. Even if you can’t read very well, you can tell what they do in the pictures.

If I wrote a Cat Adventure, he would travel the world and be silly. If Cat could meet one person, I would like him to meet Speed Racer. Go Go Speed Racer. Go Go Speed Cat! Don’t go splat!

The end

Hi! Fly Guy

By Tedd Arnold

Review by Little Brother

I am getting better at reading. This was my library book this week. It is Hi! Fly Guy. It is about a kid finds a pet fly. His name is Buzz and he thinks the fly is saying his name. The fly is really saying go away! The boy catches the fly and the fly gets mad. The boy puts the fly in a show and the fly does really good. At the end, they become friends.

There are more books about Fly Guy and Buzz. I liked that I could read this with only a little help on the big words. It was silly. It was silly to say Buzz!

I recommend this to people who like flies and want them as pets. I also recommend it to kids who are learning to read.
