I’m curious, how does an author turn over a book like this to an illustrator and get pictures? I mean it’s a book that only uses 2 words! Mine yours mine yours mine yours is all it says! But it’s such a great book!!

This book is about a panda who goes to play with a kite but it pulls him into other animals things and sometimes the animal!

The illustrations are so cool and great too!!

I’m giving these two books on my twitter and instagram accounts, check out those pages for more details!!

Multi-book review

Reviewers: Drew and Jake

These two books were awesome! The “Rock” one was neat with showing everyone involved with the history of rock n roll. Chuck Berry and Tina Turner were cool and so was David Bowie and his cool face paint 🙂 
The “Rap” one was also really awesome like the “Rock” book with showing a lot of cool rappers. We liked Run DMC and Missy Elliott. Also liked the cool guy with the hat on the cover…we don’t who he is but seems like a nice guy!!

Review – “Frida Catlo”

This book was very nice and really really cool & informative. We liked the cool pictures of Frida as a cat and they did a great job of showing her exciting life and art.

Secrets of a Fangirl

By Erin Dionne

Book Status: Available on May 28, 2019

This book is about a girl who wins a trivia contest about the most popular book ever, ( from what I can tell ) and she is on a panel at a book convention. At the end of the panel the winners are informed that there is another challenge to discover who is the biggest fan. She decides to enter that contest but is also hiding it in school. The story is about trying to balance her school identity and her real identity. Spoiler – it doesn’t work for her or anyone.

I liked that this book felt like what life is like. It is like my life with my blog. I don’t try to hide it but kids don’t think it is cool and grownups don’t believe me. It can be hard to be a super fan of something.

I recommend this book to middle schoolers and fifth graders. Maybe fourth too. It helps understand what middle school will be like.

Native American Tales and Legends

Book Source: Owned

Book Status: Available

This book is full of many Native American legends and stories. It’s funny that I bought it at a Navajo Reservation, but it have any Navajo legends!! My favorite story is Glooscap and the three seekers of gifts, which is a Micmac story. My family has Micmac heritage.

On this vacation I have taken two tours with Navajo guides who have shared about their culture. That has been a good way to learn about their history.

I recommend this book to anyone curious about the tales and legends.

Taking Cover

This is a true story, I want to make that known!!

This book is about a girl named Nioucha who is growing up during the Iranian Revolution, and how, when she was 5, she moved )from Pittsburg, ( USA ) to Tehran ( Iran ). It’s pretty much about how she deals with the country going from a nice place to a country with a lot of rules, like girls and women needing to be covered around men. She describes it as scary and overwhelming. It sounds like a very hard way to live.

This book would be good for maybe fifth and older. It is a more mature book. I was able to read the book but I didn’t really process it that quickly. This is the kind of book I may reread it when I am older.
