Kids’ Club Review by Lily: How to bee

How to beeHow to bee, Bren MacDibble

I really enjoyed this book as it made me think about how this world would have to function without bees. Peony is a brave and all round kindhearted character who just wants the best for her and her family and I think that she is just the type of character that a story like this needs.

Liam is extremely tall and often gets mistaken as an adult. One day he told some lies, went to a theme park, almost stole a car, and then ended up in space. I enjoyed reading this book as it was amusing and exciting. I would recommend it to children 8+.

How to bee is about a called Peony who really wishes she was a bee. She lives on a farm and although life is hard, it is full of affection. Her mother and partner, however, turn up and ruin it all by taking her away to live in a city. Will she ever be able to get back to the farm? I thought this was a beautifully written book with a unique plot. I think it is suitable for children 9+.

Liam is very tall for his age. So tall in fact that some people think he is an adult. Liam tells some lies, goes to a theme park, and ends up in space. I really enjoyed reading this book because it had a great plot and was very funny. Children 8+ would also enjoy this book.

Peony wants to be a bee. She lives on a farm and it is a hard life but there is love. One day her mother turns up and takes her away to live in the city to be a servant to a rich family. Will Peony ever be able to come back to the farm? I thought this book was captivating and I had trouble putting it down to do other things. It had a great plot and Peony was very brave, like all girls should be. I recommend this book to children 9+.

Kids’ Club Review by Sophia: 5 worlds. Book 1, The sand warrior

5 worlds. Book 1, The sand warrior5 worlds. Book 1, The sand warrior,  by Mark Siegel, and Alexis Siegel

This book is about three children on an adventure. They have to fight as they explore the 5 worlds. There are some surprises along the way.

I really liked the story and I think everyone should have a chance to read it. I think this suits people who like action books. There is some fighting so would be best for over 4 year olds. I did not find it scary but some younger children might.
