GutsGuts, Raina Telgemeier

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This book is the third book in the Raina series. This book is in a graphic novel format, which I really really love.
Raina is in fourth grade (year 5). The stomach flu (crypto) is going around. Raina catches it. Raina hates to vomit. But, a lot of things make her vomit. To make it worse, there is a mean girl who seems to hate Raina’s guts. How will Raina cope?
I recommend this book for ages 8+. I rate this book 5 stars.

Kids’ Club Review by Alice: The bully buster

The bully busterThe bully buster, by Sally Rippin ; illustrated by Aki Fukuoka

🏫 A bully at Billie ‘s school kicked Billie’s new soccer ball into the peppercorn tree and his name is Jason. He also ran into Billie while she was carrying her elephant bottom shaped teapot! The next lunchtime Jack, Billie and Rebecca sit on the top of the monkey bars to make sure Jason doesn’t come near them and then Billie says why was he even by our side of the playground. You should read this book if you like reading chapter books. I also liked how Billie tried to be a good friend to all. 😍

Kids’ Club Review by Molly: Wonder

August Pullman has a facial deformity that has meant that he has been home schooled. This is all about to change as his parents have enrolled him in a main stream school where he has to work hard to be accepted. This story is heart-warming as it is about a boy’s struggle to make true friends and to overcome the fact that he is different to his peers. It is a sad and happy story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I thought it was an amazing book since it informs people about the life challenges that disabled children face. I understand the difficulties disabled children have face. It also gave me a better understanding of the life disabled kids experience.
