This is a hilarious story of a gorilla who finds a banana that she can’t figure out how to open. I was hesitant to read this at first but now find I will be recommending this a lot!
This was recommended to me a lot. I thought it was cute and I liked the illustrations more than the text actually.
I had thought this was a companion book to a book I liked but wasn’t. This has beautiful illustrations though and I liked how the colors popped out on every page. Instructions on how to make a paper snowflake and a pine cone bird feeder- as well as some fun winter trivia- can be found at the end of the book.
Another beginning reader addition to the Rocket series finds him having to bring 100 special things to school.
For some reason, I thought this was a sequel. And, for some reason, I didn’t want to read it. But I’m glad I actually read it because it’s a sweet story about siblings and creativity.
I think this series is something that kind of has diminishing returns of enjoyment the more they put out. I thought the first book was super cute and have given it out as gifts. While the message is cute and the illustrations still bring on the nostalgia, I really hope this is the last one!
Three very different girls. Three very different circumstances. One day will change their lives forever.
Using lots of research, Bobbi Miller crafts multiple storylines taking place around the battle of Gettysburg. One is a slave girl. One is a girl from a well-to-do family. One is a girl posing as a boy to become a soldier.
I think readers will enjoy reading a side of the war they may not have been familiar with and most likely will find something they relate to with the characters.
An eleven-year-old boy from a broken family and a depressed town lashes out by vandalizing other people’s properties and stealing with his other no good friends. After one close call from the cops, he finds himself working for his mysterious neighbor. Suddenly, he’s part of a secret that he’s not sure he can handle.
This festive middle grade novel is sure to charm readers who crave adventure and mystery with a touch of heart.

I’m hoping to read my final Must Read in 2014 title- Christopher Pike’s Black Knight!
