Kids’ Club Review by Miki: How to train your dragon

How to train your dragonHow to train your dragon, by Cressida Cowell

It’s pretty good. It involves a little bit of violence but I don’t think it would be too scary for little children. It shows an important bond between owner and pet. It’s quite funny actually.

Kids’ Club Review by Miki: The first case

The first caseThe first case, by Ulf Nilsson (1948-)

It shows that sometimes if you suspect someone or something too much you can often get things wrong. And even if you’re the same species it doesn’t mean that you won’t steal from each other.

Kids’ Club Review by Petra: Small and tall tales of extinct animals

Small and tall tales of extinct animalsSmall and tall tales of extinct animals, by Hélène Rajcak

I thought it was a really interesting book but a bit sad reading about all animals that are now extinct. But on the whole it was a good book. The pictures were really good and very fun to look at, and you were easily able to imagine what the real animal would have looked like. It had lots of facts and you could use it to help you write a whole project.

Kids’ Club Review by Luke: Rockhopping

RockhoppingRockhopping, by Trace Balla

Imagine trying to find the source of a river. This book is about Uncle Egg and Clancy who are trying to do just that. Read this book to discover what adventures they have along the way. I liked this book as it was a change from chapter books and had a unique plot. Children 5+ would enjoy this book.
