About Marsupials
Uncategorised / 6th avril 2019

About Marsupials is the title so the book is about…marsupials, of course. It’s non-fiction. I really think everyone would like the book. I think someone who likes animals would especially like to read it. The glossary of facts in the back of About Marsupials is the most useful part. I thought the most interesting parts were that some marsupials have their pouch at their back legs and one marsupial, the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby, is very small but can jump 13 feet wide! Kids in the 4-8 age range would like this book. Even though it’s not a story book, 4 year olds would like the few words on each page and they would love the beautiful pictures. But older kids would like it because of all the facts in the back of the book. There’s a lot of information for each animal. I think boys and girls (and parents) would enjoy reading it. This book is very interesting. I give it 4 stars.

Frankenstein’s Cat
Uncategorised / 6th avril 2019

I appreciated Frankenstein’s Cat for its fascinating explanation about the often baffling subject of bioengineering and its sister sciences. Emily Anthes explains the many sides of today’s modern technology, such as gene modification, cloning, pharmaceutical products (from the farm), prosthesis, animal tag and tracking and gene cryogenics. This book provides a well-rounded summary of these complicated sciences without being boring or simply factual. Her real world examples take us on a journey from the farm, to the pet store and then from the pharmacy to the frozen arc. Have you ever wondered if the neighborhood cat is spying on you? Read about Operation Acoustic Kitty and find out if this feline fantasy fiction or fact. Do you think bugs are creepy? What about a zombified cyborg beetle? Is Fido so special that you want two of him? Money can buy you an almost exact copy of your pooch BUT don’t expect the same personality. Emily Anthes makes you crave more information. She makes you want to know the future of Earth’s flora and fauna, as well as humanity itself. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who desires a guide to the future of biological science and technology. Frankenstein’s…

I Capture the Castle
Uncategorised / 6th avril 2019

Dodie Smith’s novel I Capture the Castle is a journey through the mind of a young writer as she attempts to chronicle her daily life. Seventeen-year-old Cassandra Mortmain has recently learned to speed-write, and she decides to work on her writing skills by describing the actions and conversations of those around her. Cassandra lives in a fourteenth-century English castle with an interesting cast of characters: her beautiful older sister, Rose; her rather unsociable author father and his second wife, artist-model Topaz; Stephen, the garden boy; a cat and a bull terrier; and sometimes her brother Thomas when he is home from school. One fateful day they make the acquaintance of the Cotton family, including the two sons, and a web of tangled relationships ensues. While I definitely recommend this book to other readers, I would recommend it to older teenagers, mainly because it will resonate better with them. The writing is tame enough that younger teens could also read it, but most of the characters are adults or on the verge of adulthood. Older readers would take the most from it since they can not only relate, but they may also better pick up on and appreciate Cassandra’s sometimes subtle…

Galaxy Zach: Journey to Juno
Uncategorised / 6th avril 2019

Journey To Juno is the second book of the Galaxy Zack series. It is just as good as the first one. It’s awesome! Zack joins the Sprockets Academy Explorers Club at school. They fly on a special trip to Juno, a new planet no one has ever visited. Zack gets paired up with Seth, the class bully, and that’s dreadful but Zack is excited when he finds a huge galaxy gemmite. A gemmite that large had not been found in 100 years! Kids will love this book! Boys and girls will both like it. It’s an easy chapter book with pictures on every page. I love the illustrations. I think ages 6-8 would like this but younger kids would like the story being read to them. My favorite parts are the galactic blast game (it is similar to baseball except there are robots playing), recess at Zack’s school where everything is 3-D holographic images, the rainbow river in a crystal cave on Juno, and the galaxy gemmite that Zack finds on Juno. I also loved when a life-size holographic image of his Earth friend appears in Zack’s room because he calls him on a hyperphone. I give this book one…

Flesh & Blood So Cheap
Uncategorised / 5th avril 2019

I liked this book. People who are interested in national disasters and US history as well as immigration will most probably be interested in reading this book. Readers can gain knowledge of what it was like to work in New York City in the early 1900s. One of the things that was especially interesting was that there were no safety laws at work. Also, there was a big contrast between the rich and the poor. Some people may not like this book because it is very depressing, but it is an important event in history to remember. This book was very well written. It has black and white photos along with descriptions of the photos. These photos give us a better idea of what people’s lives were like. This book is suitable for 9-20 year olds. I give this book 5 stars.

If I Never Forever Endeavor
Uncategorised / 5th avril 2019

This book was about a bird who didn’t yet know how to fly. The bird has to decide if it will try to fly, but it was not sure if it wants to. The bird thought, « If I never forever endeavor » then I won’t ever learn. On one wing, he worries he might fail and on the other wing he thinks of how he may succeed. He worries that if he tries, he may get lost in the world. That makes him want to stay in his nest where he’s safe. I think this book would help other children to learn that trying new things can be scary, but sometimes when we try, we can find things that make us happy too. And this book will help others know that mistakes are okay and part of learning. My favorite part is that the bird tried and learned that she could fly. I also liked that I read this book because it gave me a chance to talk to mom about making mistakes and how I don’t like making them. Then I learned they are good and part of learning. Boys and girls who are 3 to 8 years old would…
