Kids’ Club Review by Hannah: Malala

Malala : my story of standing up for girls’ rights / Yousafzai, Malala

This book was really cool because it was written by Malala herself! She writes about her struggles of trying to go to school while living in Pakistan in a time where girls weren’t allowed to go to school. Malala continued to fight for freedom even after she was shot on her way to school by the Taliban (a terrorist group). This book was really interesting. I recommend it for ages 8 and a half and up.

Kids’ Club Review by Dominic: The remarkable journey of Coyote Sunrise

The remarkable journey of Coyote SunriseThe remarkable journey of Coyote Sunrise, Dan Gemeinhart

The remarkable journey of Coyote Sunrise is a incredible story about a girl who had been named Coyote since the death of her two sisters and Mum. After the incident, Coyote and her Dad Rodeo set off in a never ending trip on their new home Yager (an old school bus). Rodeo has a list of ‘no goes’ and one of them is going back to their old home but after Coyote’s weekly chat on the phone with her Grandma, her Dad’s Mum tells her the local park is being taken down to become buildings. Coyote remembers that 5 days before the deaths, her sisters and Mum buried a box that they would come back and and dig up ten years later. But luckily Rodeo and his daughter had invented an acronym; Drop Everything And Drive (DEAD) meaning they had a craving they really wanted to come true even if it was on the other side of the US. Coyote lied saying she needed a pork sandwich made around her birthplace. Needing the box, Coyote decides to do the impossible: travelling 3000 miles in a week without Rodeo noticing her plan. Picking up strangers to help her case along the way, she attempts her feat.

This is a very heartfelt and emotional story, but I loved every second of it and never wanted it to end.

Kids’ Club Review by Jacob: Cook’s cook

Syndetics book coverCook’s cook : the cook who cooked for Captain Cook / Gavin Bishop.

 

This book was all about the adventure of the HMS Endeavour to New Zealand told from the perspective of cook’s cook…

I think this book is great as it teaches you about the voyage to New Zealand from an overshadowed character, captain cook’s cook. Another reason why I think it’s great is because it contains amazing illustrations. overall, I’d recommend the book to everyone as it’ll help them learn more about the voyage to New Zealand.

4 stars
