This year was the second year of Mini Nerdling taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge hosted by our local library. If you don't know what this is, it's an incentive to keep children reading throughout the six weeks holiday (summer holiday here in the UK), they have to read six books and give them a score out of three stars. As they go through they get rewards and stickers and there are other activities to keep it interesting. Once they complete it they get some goodies, a wristband, a medal and a certificate. If you want to find out more, the official website is here.
As Mini Nerdling has helped me out with book reviews before, he knows I give my "score" out of five stars and he knows I have to write about what I thought of the book, so although there is only room to score out of three stars on the form, he wanted to do it the way I do it. I thought it would be fun to keep a record of his reviews and share them with everyone. It's also good practice for when he helps with reviews and for school in the future. So without further ado, onto the reviews -
Animal Fun! Touch And Feel - Tracey Radford
My favourite part was the elephants and I enjoyed feeling the pages.
In-o-saur, Out-o-saur - David Bedford and Leonie Worthington
My favourite part was the cover and I liked that it was the same as a page in the book.
Fortunately, Unfortunately - Michael Foreman
My favourite part was the aliens.
100 First Animals - Dawn Sirett
But Excuse Me That Is My Book - Lauren Child
I liked the first page when the brother and sister were sat reading together
Meg And Mog - Helen Nicoll and Jan Pieńkowski
I liked the witches and I liked the page when all the witches looked the same and I spotted the differences.
And that's it! What do you think? Do you think he did a good job, because I do but I am biased. Have you and you kids read any of these books? What did you think?
