I loved this story. Junior Library Guild sent this one to me. I needed a tissue when this was done. It's a beautiful story about loss, and finding family. There is a teeny tiny bit of magic. But the real magic is this story. It's a good read. Add this one to your high school library.

This last one in the series is much more complex and layered. Find out how this story ends. Will one be consumed by evil magic? Will one be able to hold the throne? Read and find out. Fine for any high school library.

It's a different type of story. I did like the book and will get for my high school library. I liked that at the end of the book their is a glossary of circus terms. It's a good story line filled with tension and drama. The images worked for the story. Enjoy.

This is a good book. I stuck with the book it was worth it. Frank's parents are from Korea and have their biases towards other non-Korean people. Frank learns a lot about life and his parents too. It's a good story. I would get for my high school.

This is a good book for elementary school. The book is very simply written to tell the story of the young boy living in 1776 in the time of all the action and battle. The deadliness of life at this time.
The audio book also good.

Wow, these girls went through so much. A family destroyed by many others and within their own family. The girls grew up under the public eye and were used for marketing. Even their own father was a problem. It's a good read and a good audio book as well.

While the world is experiencing a Pandemic, this story seems to echo what is going on.
Oh the irony. This is a richly written book akin to the Lord of the Rings series and a few others.
It's a good book and also the audio book is good as well. The reader of this audio book has a rich voice that makes this story come to life. It's a good read. Besides, it has dragons and warrior wizards.
This is good and I'm getting for my high school library. These two kids who meet online and become friends. Trolls who hack into her account. A dad who is doing something secret. A boss who doesn't pay. It's a good read. The audio book also very good. Enjoy.
A lovely picture book of a little boy looking for his lost cat. The images are beautiful and the story is told in a sweet way. Add this one to little people's libraries. Even if the little one can't read, the pictures will tell the story. Enjoy.

This is perfect for the classroom to see how words are used in context, even if it's one word. Great for early elementary classrooms and libraries. I can see boys enjoying this picture book.

It's a good story. Sharks are so fascinating and the information about the sharks is set up to come naturally in the story. The story is about a girl dealing with grief when her friend dies. It's a good story and fine for any library.

This is the story of Mitch Albom and his wife taking in a little girl from Haiti who need treatment for a brain tumor. How a child entered into their world and changed them in so many ways as they also make an impact on her life. Chika was full of life and was an amazing child. It's a good read. Get a hankie with this one. It's a beautiful story. The audio book is infused with Chika recordings. A truly sweet story.

Do you know that one nerdy oddball? Meet Sweety. She is sweet and adorable but a bit of a misfit. Misfits have their own special place in the world and we love them. Fine for any library. Enjoy.
In the real world bunnies and foxes don't play but in picture books they do. It's a sweet book and rhymes very easy to make it a good read aloud. I see this as a read to little ones before they go to bed or on a rainy day to encourage napping. Enjoy.
Loved this book. So many of our young teens and young people have no idea who Pete Seeger was and what he did. It's a good book to add to any middle school and high school library.
