Kids’ Club Review by Rose: Good night stories for rebel girls

Good night stories for rebel girls, by Elena Favilli, Francesca Cavallo

This book inspires me.
One of my favourite women was Jane Goodall. Because I liked the picture and it was amazing to read about the relationships between her and the chimpanzees.
I think that this book is one of the best books of all time because everything is a true story.
I think think this book suits girls over 5.
But you might need to look up some words or places in a dictionary.
This book is packed with wonderful women and girls from Cleopatra (the last ruler of Egypt), to Misty Copeland (ballerina)

Kids’ Club Review by Sophia: Good night stories for rebel girls

Syndetics book coverGood night stories for rebel girls : 100 tales of extraordinary women / Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.

This book has many stories about amazing women from around the world who have done amazing things. Each story is only one page so the stories are short and you can read as many as you like.

I thought it was amazing! My favourite stories are about Cleopatra, Joan Jett and Coco Chanel.
I loved the variety.

This suits any age over three

Kids’ Club Review by Akane: Hero of the sea

Syndetics book coverHero of the sea : Sir Peter Blake’s mighty ocean quests by David Hill ; illustrated by Phoebe Morris.

I liked when Peter Blake met Pippa because they both loved adventures and sailed a lot around the globe. It was interesting when they wore red socks. it was funniest when the elephants wore red socks too. Peter won the world ‘s Yacht races because he was a great sailer. He was a good sailer.

Kids’ Club Review by petra: Oh Boy: A Storybook of Epic Men

Syndetics book coverOh boy : a storybook of epic NZ men by Stuart Lipshaw.

I really enjoyed this book because it tells you all about NZ men and what they did my favourite story in this book was Richie McCaw becaues I’ve seen him play and hes really good at playing rugby. I really liked the illustrations in this book because they helped break the writing in the book up so it didn’t feel dense when you were reading it I also just liked the drawings because they were really good.
