Kids’ Club Review by Nashe Marahwa: Dog days

Dog days / Kinney, Jeff

Diary of a wimpy kid dog days is a really good book because the author is explaining how Greg and his family are taking on the summer break my favourite part is when its Greg’s birthday and they are going to a local swimming pool near Greg’s house. I really recommend this book for people aged 9-12.

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.

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

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

This story is about the author who gets teased by children at school because she has big hair and the other children called her mophead . After she became a poet she got a tokotoko that looks like a mop . I like this book because it gives you a message that being unique and its okay to be different. And I like the pictures.
