Kids’ Club Review by Robin: The evolution of Calpurnia Tate

The evolution of Calpurnia TateThe evolution of Calpurnia Tate, Jacqueline Kelly

This book is about a girl in the 1890s who is growing up with a whole bunch of brothers, but she has to be ladylike and learn how to cook and sew, but she really likes science. I loved this book, I have gotten it out of the library so many times! Five stars! I would reccomend it to ages 7 plus.

5 stars

The nature of AshThe nature of Ash, Mandy Hager

The Nature Of Ash is about this boy and when his father dies he gets thrown into a crazy adventure. I think that this book was not that good in the start, but towards the end it got better. I would reccomend it to ages 12 plus.

Kids’ Club Review by Pippa: Wonder

WonderWonder, R.J. Palacio

Wonder is a really good book that every child should read. the main character, August, has extreme face deformities and has been home schooled his whole life. but then he goes to middle school. he makes friends, has highs and lows, but all through it he stays hopeful. it’s a book about finding our differences and who we really are.

this book is a dystopian book about new zealand politics, and as boring as it may sound this book is amazing. the main character Ash, who dad has just died starts to look closer at the corrupted prime minster, i would recommend this book to 10-13 year olds.

Kids’ Club Review by Pippa: Auggie & me : three Wonder stories

Auggie & me : three Wonder storiesAuggie & me : three Wonder stories, R.J. Palacio

this is a book that isn’t the sequel, to wonder. it shows the different point of views of Julian, Augusts enemy. Charlotte, also know as singaling, who is distant but friendly to Auggie and Christopher, an old time friend of Auggie. i would read wonder first for this to make sense, but you can just read this.
