Kids’ Club Review by Alice: The mane guide to My little pony.

The mane guide to My little pony.The mane guide to My little pony.,

It was really good and sparkly. My favourite pony is pinkie pie and rainbow 🌈 dash. This book is called the mane guide to my little Pony. The book is about the different ponies and a little story about them. Pinkie Pie’s cutie mark is one yellow balloon and two blue balloons. Rainbow Dash’s cutie mark is a rainbow shaped like a lightening bolt and a little white cloud. This book is really good if your friend is having a pony themed birthday and is good for 3 year old or above and if they can’t read, their parents can read it to them.

Kids’ Club Review by Alice: The bully buster

The bully busterThe bully buster, by Sally Rippin ; illustrated by Aki Fukuoka

🏫 A bully at Billie ‘s school kicked Billie’s new soccer ball into the peppercorn tree and his name is Jason. He also ran into Billie while she was carrying her elephant bottom shaped teapot! The next lunchtime Jack, Billie and Rebecca sit on the top of the monkey bars to make sure Jason doesn’t come near them and then Billie says why was he even by our side of the playground. You should read this book if you like reading chapter books. I also liked how Billie tried to be a good friend to all. 😍

This book is called fantastic eats & how to cook them! I am going to tell you the ones I love the most. They are all in the sweet bit. The Apple Rose Tarts and the Cherry Bakewell Tartlets. The Icy Watermelon Lollies and the Strawberry and Lime Pots. The Monster Crispy Treats and the colour I want them to be is blue. I also like the look of the Orange Butterfly Cakes and the Rainbow Skewers. You should get this book out of the library and make some of the recipes. I will be able to make the monster crispy treats if my mum or dad buys the stuff we will need.

Kids’ Club Review by Hannah: Good night stories for rebel girls. 2

Good night stories for rebel girls. 2Good night stories for rebel girls. 2, Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli

This book was really inspirational. For each person there is a portrait of them, and then a page-long story about who they are and what they did. The woman in there are from all over the globe and from all walks of life.
My favourite girl in this book is Florence Chadwick, the first woman to swim across the English Channel. I would recommend this book for ages 7 and up.

This is an excellent cooking book. It has step by step instructions which make following the recipes really easy. The recipes are delicious and are good for everyone. It has a range of recipes from around the world, and there are vegetarian recipes as well. The recipe that I liked the most was the BBQ chicken. I was able to make it all by myself!
I recommend this book for 7 year olds and older.

Billie B Brown was scared at first but then Lola was standing next to Billie B Brown . Billie B Brown and Lola jumped into the pool then the instructor told them to sit on the side of the pool. Then they wanted their swimming group to be called The Doggie Paddlers! The book was awesome!

Jack was a little bit mean because he said girls can not play soccer ⚽️. The rest of the book 📚 was awesome 😻. The book is good for six years old and seven years old and the other Billie B Brown books are also good for six years old and seven years old.

I enjoyed this book as I grew up near Christchurch and felt the earthquakes in Timaru when I was 4. I am a big fan of Fleur Beale’s I am not Esther series which is why I chose to read this, but I didnt like it quite as much.
