What makes me me?What makes me me?, by Robert M. L. Winston

Through games and activities this book helps children learn about themselves. It has lots of questions about how life works and questions about what you like doing which tell you about how you think and your personality. I really enjoyed it.

Kids’ Club Review by Leela: Bella’s backyard bullies

Bella's backyard bulliesBella’s backyard bullies, by Samantha Turnbull

This is a quite good book. The Vernon brothers really really upset me when I didn’t realise the reason they were attacking the girls, until I found out why. I liked that the girls tried to fight back. My favourite part was how they got the Vernons to build the treehouse with them.

Kids’ Club Review by Leela: Cruise control

Cruise controlCruise control, by Samantha Turnbull

This is a great book because it shows how important it is to not throw rubbish into the sea. And all the four people of the anti-princess club have their own chapters in the book. And all of the anti-princess club books show that children can do anything they like and be anything they want to be.

Kids’ Club Review by Francesca: Girls who Looked under rocks

Girls who Looked under rocks, by Jeannine atkins

I was very very lucky enough to meet Dr Jane Goodall. She was amazing and had a toy chimp called Mr H. I have read lots of books about Jane Goodall – another good one is The Watcher. This book is not just about looking under rocks it’s about inspiring kids to go out into nature and take care of animals. Sketches are good but I would have liked them in colour. Recommend for older readers…lots of words in a little book.
