Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Be prepared

Be preparedBe prepared, Vera Brosgol

This book is about a Russian girl called Vera who lives in America. One holiday Vera went to a camp called Oppa, which is for Russian children. Vera discovers she is not only a lot younger than the other girls but that there is no electricity, no proper toilets, and she has no friends. Will she cope? I liked this comic as it had a great plot, I read it twice. It was funny too.

Kids’ Club Review by Tulip: Winnie the Bold

Syndetics book coverWinnie the Bold! by Laura Owen and Korky Paul.

I liked this book and how it had four stories in one. Each story is unique and was engaging. My favorite story was ‘Winnie goes camping’. In this story Winnie and Wilbur go camping when some rain, hunger and a goat come and wreck their trip. Want to see what the other stories are about? Read the book!

Kids’ Club Review by Jacob: The blizzard challenge

The blizzard challengeThe blizzard challenge, by Bear Grylls

This book was a great book. It’s about a boy called Olly who went on a camp for the first time. On the first day he didn’t take part and didn’t like camp at all. However that night a compass comes and transports Olly to a mountain that is very cold. Bear is there to guide him but then the storm hits and they have to make a hole to protect themselves. Olly realises he is actually enjoying himself. He then goes to sleep and ends up back at camp. Olly then gives camp a fair go and ends up liking camp. If you like books that have lots of action then you should read this.

Kids’ Club Review by Aoi: The big adventure

The big adventureThe big adventure, by Sally Rippin

Today Jack was in happy mood because he was going to camp. When Jack got to the Camp site, he asked if he could go in the cool blue water. Then Jack found a cave and he got stuck. His Dad rescued him. The story is a little bit boring to me.

I liked this book when I was five! I thought it was a very funny and inspiring book that gives children ideas about adventers they can do ( in this book) ! In this book Jack goes camping with his family and after he sets the tent up he wants to go swiming. at the beach the current in the water is very strong so Jack is only allowed in with dad or mum. But Jack wants to go exploring and gets stuck behind the tide! What will happen to Jack.

Kids’ Club Review by Arav: Herman’s vacation

Herman's vacationHerman’s vacation, by Tom Percival (1977-)

The book was funny. Henry and Herman are two best friends who want to go on vacation. Unfortunately, vacations cost money, and that’s one thing they don’t have. Henry is determined to find an affordable vacation for his best friend. When the hiking trip Henry planned doesn’t make Herman happy, Henry decides to bring the comforts of home to his friend.
Its a great story about friendship.
I loved this book and recommend it to everyone.
