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.

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.
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.
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.
Mom has one of those jobs where she does a lot of different projects for the company. One project she does is road safety education. She works for an automotive company (duh we live near Detroit). I am the mascot for one of her sponsored programs and am known as Road Safety Kid. When we heard about this book, we knew we had to order it.
This book is awesome. You learn about vehicle safety and the history of how they tested car safety. You learn what brakes do (Dad works for a brakes company). You learn about airbags and seatbelts and even future concepts. They even talk about mirrors and backup cameras.
Mom thinks this book is pretty cool. She is going to share it with her road safety friends. I think this is really interesting. I don’t know many kids into road safety like I am but kids who are curious how things work would like this book. Kids who like engineering will like it. I think adults should read this book to remember why they need to wear their seatbelts and use mirrors.
It is funny because on Tuesday I read a story about the history of windshield wipers.
I think this book is awesome and should join the kid education on pedestrian and bike safety.
