Kids’ Club Review by Luis: Hey Jack The new friend

Hey Jack: The new friend, by Sally Rippin

Jack found a dog because the dog was lost. They had to keep the dog because they checked all of their neighbors and checked who owns it. The puppy only stayed for two nights. He was using towels to sleep on. On the last night Jack was sleeping on the puppies bed. Jack went to the puppies bed because he heard a barking noise he knew it was the puppy.And then they found the owner of the dog, it was Alf. He showed Jack and his Dad the other puppies inside a door and he had five puppies. One big puppy and one grey puppy and all of the other puppies were brown. I like this book because he has a new friend. If you don’t know what it is I will give you a clue it is cute and it chases cats if you don’t know what it is, it is a dog. I also like the book because i like cute puppies.

Kids’ Club Review by Luis: Hey Jack The winning goal

Hey Jack The winning goal, by Sally Rippin

It’s about Jack and it is his first time to play soccer and he thought he would score a goal. He actually wouldn’t because he was a goal keeper. The teams were tying, Jack told Jem to shoot between the goalies legs and Jem scored a goal. Jack’s team won.

Kids’ Club Review by Abigail: Hey Jack! The Scary Solo

Hey Jack! The Scary Solo, by Sally Rippin

Interesting how Jack’s feelings are described.

“Jack scrunches up his face and kicks the ground. He feels a big dark monster inside him grumbling to be let out.” (p15-16)
“Only two more songs and they are on! Jack fees his tummy flipping like a fish.” (p32)
“He feels a big warm burst of sunshine in his chest. He is a star!” (p42)
