Kids’ Club Review by Lara: Half a chance

Half a chanceHalf a chance, by Cynthia Lord

I think this book is a really great book. It is about a girl called Lucy who moves houses and meets a boy called Nate and his family. His family protect the Loons (birds) that live out on the lake. Lucy enters a photography contest and Nate helps her take the photos. I enjoyed this book a lot and I recommend it for people between 10 & 12.

Maisy goes to the moviesMaisy goes to the movies, by Lucy Cousins

I liked this book because the pictures are really bright and colourful. This story is about how Maisy goes to the movie with its friends. I really liked the end because they dont know what to watch and the elephant says we can watch it again. Whats your favorite part?……

Kids’ Club Review by Sam: A collection of Rudyard Kipling’s Just so stories

A collection of Rudyard Kipling's Just so storiesA collection of Rudyard Kipling’s Just so stories, by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

I thought these stories were very similar because they were all about an animal, and most of the stories were telling how that animal got a feature of its body,like how the elephant got its trunk. This book was very much fun to read. I’ve only given it three stars because it was a bit repetitive. My favourite story was about the rhino because it was very humourous.

Little Elliot, big cityLittle Elliot, big city, by Mike Curato

Little Elliot was a small elephant. He had lots of trouble at the city, because everything was too big for him! But he still enjoyed the little things. But one day Elliot found a really good friend! Read to find out who that special friend is!

Kids’ Club Review by Ansh: Koala round-up

Koala round-upKoala round-up, by Justin D’Ath

This book is about two boys who are in a group called Mission Fox. In this book there is a fire in the farm land and the two boys try and save the koalas stuck inside the fire.
My favorite character is agent D, a brave dog who helps animals to get out of the fire.

Kids’ Club Review by Francesca: Where’s the elephant?

Where's the elephant?Where’s the elephant?, by Barroux

This book was cute and I enjoyed finding things, sometimes they were hard and other times they weren’t! It had awesome pictures and really fun drawings.

I recommend this to 4+, but the little kids may need help reading and finding.
