Kids’ Club Review by Lyla: The bear and the piano

The bear and the pianoThe bear and the piano, by David Litchfield

This story is about a bear that finds a piano. Over the years the bear gets better and better at playing the piano. He goes to the city, but he is wondering if his friends will miss him. I like the part where he comes back to the forest and his friends were not sad, but they were proud. I really like this book and I am rating it a 5 out of 5. This is a story about friendship.

Kids’ Club Review by Lyla: Dreams come true

Dreams come trueDreams come true, by Meredith Costain (1955-)

Cassi Valentine (singer) is doing a competition. I love the part where Cassi shouts out that Ella can come and sing Dreams Come True (one of Cassi’s songs). But I don’t like the part when Zoe acts funny to Ella. But then I also like the part when Zoe and Ella are BFFs again.
