A Call to Arms

book cover of A Call to Arms

Reviewer: Alex

Book by Cube Kid

The book “A Call To Arms” is book 2 of the “Tales Of An 8-Bit Kitten” series and is about a kitten named Eeebs who went into the Nether and was magically transformed into a super powerful kitten. In book 2 he finds out that he can learn monster abilities by being affected by them. Eeebs has dark blue fur and he can stand up on 2 feet. Eeebs can also teach people monster abilities like the aspect of the spider that makes it so you can climb up walls like a spider. “ Tales An 8-Bit Kitten” is based in Minecraft. I like this book because it is about a kitten and I really like kittens and cats. I also like this book because Eeebs is not brave, disobedient, and does not understand a lot of stuff. People who like kittens, Minecraft, and monsters should read this book.

Duck Therapy

By Joni Armstrong

Book Source: given to me by grandfather

Book Status: available

This book is about a baby duck being late to hatch. He had a bad foot and had to go through therapy. It is based on a real duck.

Kids watch along as he goes through the process. The kids are all getting therapy too.

This book would be good for kids who need therapy. It makes therapy seem fun and show how it helps. Therapy can be scary for kids. It does help.

Kids who like ducks would like this too.

I Survived Graphic Novel

By Lauren Tarshis

Art by Haus Studio

Book source: provided for review by Scholastic

Book Status: available February 4, 2020

I really like the I Survive books and was excited to hear about graphic novel version. This one is about surviving the Titanic sinking. I haven’t stopped reading it since I got the review copy.

It is historical fiction in a way kids can understand. I have also read the book version of this. The graphic illustrations shows you what the Titanic really looked like and there are facts at the end of the book.

Kids will like this because it is a series we like and a graphic novel. They will learn about a real situation. This could help kids get into the I Survive series too.

Bunny Business

By Lori Richmond

Book Source: provided by Lori because I (Lil Brother) am her biggest fan

Book Status: Available March 3, 2020

Lori Richmond is the coolest and not just because she did a book with Tim Kubart. I really liked Bunny-stacation and she nicely sent me an advanced copy of Bunny Business.

Bunny Business is about Bunny going to Mama’s work. It is about the travel to work and his day there. The highlight is Bunny gets hungry while Mama is in a meeting.

Lori’s pictures really help the story. There are lots of hidden messages like her previous books or her pictures from her runs. I also know she hides her family in the book. Finding these is just as much fun as reading the book.

I recommend the book to kids who have a Mama who works. My mama works and I have gone to her work. She takes me to her cool projects. She even set up a meeting for me with NHTSA.

Maybe people will read this book when it is take your kid to work day.

This is a Little Brother Love it, Must have it book.

Review by Little Brother

This is Little Brother and I am taking over Bridget’s blog this week! Come back each day to see what I have to say about books. Now review…

I took this book from Bridget because I like things about Bigfoot. This is a book about Bigfoot exploring Michigan. I have seen a lot of things he sees!

Bigfoot is confused about the Mitten. Michigan is called the Mitten because it looks like one but Bigfoot doesn’t know that.

Kids would like this book because they will learn about Michigan and all the cool things here. It is fun to explore with Bigfoot. It could be cool if Bigfoot explored more states.

SumoKitty

By David Biedrzycki

Book Source: bought at Book Beat

Book Status: available

Lil Brother here to tell you about a funny book that also teaches you Japanese words. In SumoKitty a stray kitten gets adopted by sumo wrestlers and takes care of their mice problem. But he eats too much and can’t chase the mice and gets kicked out. He was a very fat kitty. (One of our kitties is trying to be a SumoKitty)

He works at getting back in shape and earns his place back. On about every page is a new Japanese word to learn.

My cat is black. He is not a SumoKitty but he takes very good care of our foster kitties. I like anything with black cats in it.

This book is about not giving up and putting in hard work. It is about when you do something and stop trying hard. Then you have to try even harder.

Kids who like cats, Japanese and fun books will like this. I am going to read it to my cat everyday so he can be a SumoKitty.

May all people and pigs be happy

By Micki Fine Pavlicek

Illustrated by John Pavlicek

Book Source: copy provided in exchange for review

Book Status: Available

Annoying Little Brother taking over the blog with a review today. Bridget is at track cycling practice when I write this so she can’t stop me.

This is a story about a girl and her pig. It is about mindfulness and learning to control your emotions.

The girl’s feelings get hurt and the pig helps her think more positively. By changing how she thinks, she does nice things for other people. She has a saying about being happy, safe and loved.

This is a book I am going to share with my school. It could help lots of kids think differently. I am using mindfulness to change my behavior and it helps. It takes practice so I am still working on it. I might try using the phrases in this.
