Kids’ Club Review by Imogen: Samoan heroes

Samoan heroes / Riley, David

This book is about people in Samoa who are heroes. This is an information book not a story book.
I enjoyed of how there was cartoon pictures and real life pictures.
I would recommend to people who like looking at heroes who changed the world.

Kids’ Club Review by Aiex Mumford-Smith: Mophead : how your difference makes a difference

Mophead : how your difference makes a difference / Marsh, Selina Tusitala

Other kids should read this book to learn not to call people mean names. I liked this book because it was funny when she was called Mophead. The author has to tie her hair up so that no one called her names. But then she deiced it was ok to have it wild.

Kids’ Club Review by Anna: Mophead : how your difference makes a difference

Mophead : how your difference makes a difference / Marsh, Selina Tusitala

Mophead is a picture book about a 10-year-old girl called Selina who is bullied as she has a lot of hair that is different to everyone else’s. She is always trying to fit in by tying up her hair. One day she meets Sam Hunt, a famous NZ poet and it changes her life. No longer is her hair tied up-it’s free and WILD.
This is a nice story about learning to accept yourself and discovering your passions. This is the author’s story and it is inspiring.
