Summer Reading Challenge!

Summer Reading Challenge has sadly come to a finish and I would like to say a BIG THANK-YOU and congratulations to everyone who took part. It’s been so much fun reading all the fantastic reviews that you have sent in and hopefully you will keep sending them in as part of Kid’s Club Reviews. With over 60 books on the list I was amazed and impressed with how many some of you read and with what you were saying in the reviews! So keep up the great reading and don’t forget if you are stuck for ideas of what to read next pop down to your local library and ask the friendly librarians we love to help you choose books, or keep eye on our Blog post where we write up about fabulous new books coming into the libraries. There is still plenty of summer left for lying around with a great read!

Watch this space for the competition winners and the school who read the most books – to be announced soon…

Kids’ Club Review by Miki: How to train your dragon

How to train your dragonHow to train your dragon, by Cressida Cowell

It’s pretty good. It involves a little bit of violence but I don’t think it would be too scary for little children. It shows an important bond between owner and pet. It’s quite funny actually.

Kids’ Club Review by Miki: The first case

The first caseThe first case, by Ulf Nilsson (1948-)

It shows that sometimes if you suspect someone or something too much you can often get things wrong. And even if you’re the same species it doesn’t mean that you won’t steal from each other.

Kids’ Club Review by Petra: Small and tall tales of extinct animals

Small and tall tales of extinct animalsSmall and tall tales of extinct animals, by Hélène Rajcak

I thought it was a really interesting book but a bit sad reading about all animals that are now extinct. But on the whole it was a good book. The pictures were really good and very fun to look at, and you were easily able to imagine what the real animal would have looked like. It had lots of facts and you could use it to help you write a whole project.
