I don’t know if I said this before but my sisters are the ones who encouraged me to create my blog. And yesterday, they gave me a great idea. “Why don’t you review children’s books as well?” So I was thinking, who better to review children’s book than my own children? Thank you sis for a brilliant idea!
My dear daughter (DD) is so excited about my blog. She wants to always look at it and flips through the Instagram account for hours (I think she secretly counts how many pictures of her I posted vs how many pictures of her brother and baby sister lol). My dear son (DS), couldn’t care less honestly. So I told her my idea the other day and she was soooo excited, she told all her friends about it. Below, you will find her first review.
So here is how it will work. We will be doing this together on a weekly basis (or bi-weekly we will see how it goes). It will be all her: her choice of book, her rating, and her comments. I won’t edit it, just type it the way she says it (although she wants me to say that she is the one who typed the title and the author). The only thing that I will add to my DD’s book reviews, when needed, is a comment at the end if I believe that she rated the book unjustly (because its too boy-y or baby-y).
Title: Too Shy for Show and Tell
Author: Beth Bracken
Rating: 5 out of 5
What is the story about?
Sam was a shy boy. He does not talk a lot. He does not like show and tell because he does not like talking. On the day of show and tell, he lied at his teacher, he said he did not bring anything because he did not want to perform to the people. He thought: will he cry? Will he faint? Will he mess up his words? When it was his turn, he got up and did his show and tell. He did not cry, he did not faint and he did not mess up his words. The next time it was show and tell, Sam was not afraid or shy anymore.
Why did you like the story?
I like the story because on the first day of school I did not talk just like Sam. But after the first week I was ok and started talking, and wasn’t afraid anymore just like Sam.
Would you recommend it to other kids?
Yes! I love to read it before I sleep. (She actually has it memorized by heart).
There you go. My extremely intelligent girl’s first book review. If you have the time, please like the post (or Instagram picture) or comment. You will really make her day. Thank you!
