Blog Tour and Giveaway for the new series Voyagers! #VoyagersHQ

4 Nov

Today I am blogging about a new interactive multi-platform series from Random House. I was pleasantly surprised to learn this series is set in space and has a sci-fi feel to it. I am a fan of the multi-platform format for kids books because I think it hooks more kids into reading. I also love the idea of different authors carrying on the story from book to book and adding their own personality to the story as it grows. The new series from Random House is called Voyagers.


ABOUT THE SERIES (From the publisher)

The action is on the page, on your device, and out of this world! This multiplatform middle-grade series is fully locked and loaded and ready for launch, blasting off in Fall 2015.

Part sci-fi, part eco-mystery, all action-adventure!


As the young heroes in VOYAGERS journey into outer space to save planet Earth, readers are invited to become part of the story by joining the crew through the multi-platform, VOYAGERS HQ. The HQ extends the adventure beyond the page, unlocking games and activities on their devices.

Synopsis [from the Publisher]:

Earth is in danger! Without a renewable source of clean energy, our planet will be toast in less than a year. There are 6 essential elements that, when properly combined, create a new power source. But the elements are scattered throughout the galaxy. And only a spaceship piloted by children can reach it and return to Earth safely. First the ideal team of four 12-year-olds must be chosen, and then the first element must be retrieved. There is not a mistake to be made, or a moment to lose. The source is out there. Voyagers is blasting off in 3, 2, 1…

What I Thought [from me]- D.J. McHale sets the pace for this series in the first book. This was an engaging story. I really got hooked into the story and the characters were fun to read about. I like how the book has an environmental theme, and found the current Earth in the book (which is at an unspecified time period) a good reminder about where we will end up after a period of time. Not only that, but the fact that space exploration is a very near, very possible event. The book is really well-written, the story is set up nicely and it made this reader very anxious to get his hands on the next boo (fortunately I already have it ;) – see below ). I read the book in a day, and couldn’t put it down at all. The plot is realistic, and made me think of ways that the characters could get out of the situations.

VoyagersGameofFlamesBOOK 2: GAME OF FLAMES

by Robin Wasserman

In Stores Now

Synopsis [from the Publisher]:

The Alpha team has been chosen and they’ve already snagged the first element on planet J-16. The second is hidden on Meta-Prime, a planet filled with metal mazes, catapults of fire, and warring alien robots. But what our Voyagers don’t know is that there is another ship, the Omega team, following hot on their trail…

What I Thought [from me]: WOW! I liked the second book even more than the first. I don’t know if it’s just the fact that the world is an amazing steampunk fantasy, or if it’s because its characters are developed further. Maybe it’s both. In this book, the characters learn several lessons of being on a team, but also about each other. It’s interesting to see how they are adapting to their tasks. Ms. Wasserman’s writing style is fun, yet still serious – it’s a good mix. I would continue reading the series in a heartbeat – it’s that good! Not so patiently waiting for the next book by PATRICK CARMAN (one of my favorite authors find him at @PatrickCarman) due out on January 5, 2015!

The other cool thing is that this book also has an interactive, online game (called Voyagers HQ) as a part of the multi-platform program of the series.

It looks like they will be adding more features as the series continues. I am curios to see how that develops. Check it out HERE!

November UBFP Column – Chelsea Clinton Appears at Children’s Book World

3 Nov

I write for the UBFP Newspaper!I wanted to share the article I wrote for the Upper Bucks Free Press (the newspaper I write for) for the November 2015 issue! The street and online version were just published. To see the online version of the newspaper, click HERE or you can read the whole story below (with some added pictures ;) )!

Hope you enjoy the article!

Chelsea Clinton Appears at Children’s Book World

By Erik Weibel

I was excited to attend a book signing by former fist daughter, Chelsea Clinton. Ms. Clinton recently wrote a children’s book titled “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired, & Get Going!” (Philomel Books, September 15, 2015) The book is a well-written guide on many of the issues facing our world today as well as providing motivation to get kids to do something about it.


The event took place at Children’s Book World, in Haverford PA. When asked about a having a figure like Ms. Clinton at the book store, owner Heather Hebert said that an event like this brings the store onto people’s radars. Hebert is appreciative of publishers like Penguin Books (publisher of Clinton’s new book) for continuing to send amazing authors to Children’s Book World. Since some people were coming just because Ms. Clinton was there, Hebert hoped that once in the doors of this gem of a bookstore, the people will become regular patrons. Hebert said, it is “exciting to get people from new places.”


There definitely were a lot of people at the event! By the time it started, the line to get into the store was down the block and around the corner. The estimated attendance was between 450-500 people. As I waited my turn in line, I got a chance to ask a few people how they came to hear about the event. Some were store patrons that received notification from the store’s email list. Heather Bickley, and her children Lily and Noah, were new to the store, and had heard about the event via social media. Some in line were already familiar with Ms. Clinton’s book, liked the message and wanted to show support for it. One woman said that her children were always interested in charity works, and another said that he liked the overall message and ideas in the book. IMG_1162Piper Martz had heard about the event from her political science teacher via email, and had told her friend Anne Clare. They admitted that they were skipping class, but thought that meeting Chelsea Clinton made up for it. Piper pointed out that the “academic value of meeting Chelsea Clinton is incomparable to studying in school”, (I feel I should point out that, if their teachers read this article, they were working on their studies while waiting in line).



Ms. Clinton draws on her experiences as first daughter in the book. As first daughter, she was in a position to see the world in a way not many have the opportunity to and it shaped the story for the book. The book is about inspiring children by teaching them with an overview of the world’s challenges, like poverty, poaching, homelessness, and environmental issues. She gives examples of what other kids were doing to help combat some of these problems. When I got my chance to meet Ms. Clinton, she agreed to talk with me a little about the book. I ask her about the enormity of the problems outlined in the book and said that, as just one kid, it all seemed way too big to even start to do anything. Ms. Clinton told me to “look at big problems as lots of little problems” and work on the little ones. As I was talking to her, she told me about the story of a boy named Alex, who wanted to tackle the problem of homelessness and poverty. Instead of starting with the almost impossible task of completely stopping these problems, he chose to work on one part of it. Alex realized he always had extra pieces in his LEGO sets after he was done building them. He thought of the kids who don’t have any LEGOs at all because of their life situation. He took action and started collecting LEGO sets for these kids. Alex ended up donating thousands of LEGO sets to kids who couldn’t afford them. Clinton says this is just one example of how kids can make a difference.


At the end of each chapter, Ms. Clinton has a page of suggestions that you can do to help with whatever the chapter’s topic is. The suggestions are simple things that you can do to slowly change your life to take action help others. I really liked the entire layout of the book, and recommend it to any kid interested in making the world a better place. The message in the book and the theme at the book signing is something kids can all get behind, “We all can do something” Ms. Clinton said.

Review! Connect the Stars by Marisa de los Santos and David Teague

2 Nov

connectConnect the Stars

Co-written by Marisa de los Santos and David Teague

352 pages – ages 9+

Published by HarperCollins on September 22, 2015

Synopsis- Aaron Archer is a living encyclopedia – he remembers every single thing he’s read/heard – word for word.

Audrey Alcott is a walking lie detector – she can tell when someone lies – every single time – no matter the lie.

They have no idea who the other is. They live pretty far apart.

But when their parents (who also don’t know each other) decide, for various reasons, that spending six weeks in the total outdoors would do the kids good, they meet. They also meet some other kids (some nice, some not-so), and a crazy guy in charge of the event.

And thus starts the adventure of a lifetime.

What I thought- This was a really well-written book! I enjoyed the uniqueness of the fact that Audrey and Aaron pretty much have super-powers, but the story just makes them out to be interesting people with great talents. It made it seem almost normal – almost. Ms. de los Santos and Mr. Teague set up a wonderful story with these two unique kids thrown into an environment that really challenges them. The setting is a great place for the adventure – the Texas “Desert” Plains. The kids must learn to get along with each other, and also survive the blazing sun and landscape. When a classmate disappears after getting into a fight with the counselor, the kids team together to get to the bottom of it. I like how they learn to work together despite having very different personalities.  I enjoyed every second of it.

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

A Perfect Halloween Night (87 words)

By Erik Weibel

Dark and chilly.

Crisp and windy.

A perfect Halloween night.


Costume on.

Bag in hand.

Bring two more – just in case.


House by house.


And always say ‘Thank you’.


One house left.

No lights on.

A truly deserted place.


Ring the bell.

Shuffling heard.

Ghosts must haunt these grounds.


Door hinge creaks.

Holding breath.

Bony hand reaches out.


Skin tingles.

Feet drag.

Fear-struck on the door step.


Blood pulsing.

Stifled scream.

Happy Halloween, young man.


Kindly eyes.

Wrinkled smile…

New-found friend.

A perfect Halloween night.

Review! The Doldrums by Nicholas Gannon

29 Oct

doldrumThe Doldrums

By Nicholas Gannon

368 pages – ages 9+

Published by Greenwillow on September 29th 2015

Synopsis- Archer B. Helmsley was a dreamer. His father was a lawyer, and his mother was a doer. His grandparents were trapped on an iceberg, presumed dead. His mother, afraid that Archer – who, as a dreamer, tended to fantasize and imagine – would suffer a similar fate, kept him in the house at all times: only allowed out for school.

Archer decided that he would search for his grandparents (who had been gone for two years) in Antarctica. To do that, he would need help. So, he’s got Adélaïde L. Belmont – who only has one leg, maybe because of her world wide adventures – and Oliver Glub – who will figure out the details of the trip realistically.

It seems like it will work out. They have a plan. They have a location.

Now, if only things were what they seemed.

What I Thought- This was an amazing book. I loved every single second of it. Archer is such a great character that you want him to succeed, to blossom into a wonderful story-driven character, as he does. There are illustrations placed throughout the book, most in color, that were drawn by the author himself. They are fascinating, as you see the characters as they were imagined by the author himself. On the other hand, Mr. Gannon’s writing style is creative and has a unique way of drawing you into the story with a touch of humor and wit. I really enjoyed the book, and wish for a sequel.

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

Review! Welcome to Mars by Buzz Aldrin

27 Oct

marsWelcome to Mars: Making a Home on the Red Planet

Written by Buzz Aldrin with Marianne J. Dyson

90 pages – ages 8+

Published by National Geographic Children’s Books on September 1st, 2015

Synopsis- Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on Mars? If you have, you probably dismissed it as impossible. How would you like to hear that it may be possible to live on Mars? Within a few years, it may very well be imaginable to be setting up a colony on Mars. It is something that must be thought of, and will be a necessity for our survival as a species.

What I Thought- When I think of Mars habitation, I normally end up thinking of space-age technology bordering on Sci-Fi. When I read this book, I realized that the technology is closer than you might think. Much like the advanced technology that Jules Verne predicted and wrote about in the 1800s that is reality today, Buzz Aldrin bring future possibilities to us in this book. Aldrin theorizes about the time it will take for us to get to Mars and start a permanent colony. The text also tell the reader a lot about the red planet. In an easy to understand way, Mr. Aldrin helps explain how we would get to Mars, and tells us about Mars now, and what we would do while colonizing. Reading the book was very thought-provoking – it’s an interesting thought, moving to Mars. There are fun activities for kids reading the book to help teach them about the relationship between Earth and Mars such as Earth’s rotation vs. Mars’. There are cool illustrations, plus pictures of the planned living quarters on Mars. I think that this would be a fun class topic/project. You can discuss it with your students and even have them do activities about Mars exploration. Maybe I’ll do a school project on Mars-living!

Review! Frankie Dupont and The High Seas Heist by Julie Anne Grasso

26 Oct

frankie4Frankie Dupont and The High Seas Heist

Series: Frankie Dupont: Book #4

Written by Julie Anne Grasso

Illustrated by Alexander Avellino

131 pages – ages 7+

Published by Julie Anne Grasso on September 16th, 2015

Synopsis- Frankie Dupont is back in another adventure! When Frankie’s detective dad gets an invitation to go on a sea cruise to Antarctica for a case, he gets three other tickets to go on the cruise. Because Mrs. Dupont already had plans to visit a relative, that means that Frankie and his friends can come along! On the cruise, they learn that the famous chocolate-maker hosting the cruise is planning on unveiling her new recipe for a special chocolate. It turns out that she is scared of her recipe being stolen by famous chocolate thieves that have stolen secret recipes from other companies and mysteriously been making a fortune on their small store. The only thing is, is that they have never been caught in the act. Add in the fact that one of the thieves might be the chocolate-maker’s daughter, and you have an adventure at your fingertips!

What I Thought- Ms. Grasso knows how to write a good mystery for kids. Her Frankie Dupont stories are appropriate for all ages and are skillfully written to give an older reader a compelling mystery. Frankie is a great character that has a knack for getting to the bottom of things! Kat and Amy are realistic friends for Frankie, too. In book 4, Inspector Cluesome’s character seems to have developed from a bungling detective into one with some skills. I like when series develop characters over time. The black-and-white illustrations are nice addition to the story and connect very well with the text. Ms. Grasso has done a great job continuing the Frankie series! My only complaint is now I am hungry after reading about all that chocolate…

I give “Frankie Dupont and The High Seas Heist” five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

Halloween is the best holiday ever! It is also a very busy time for me and Teddy: We have to pick pumpkins, decorate the house, and make scary costumes. With so much to do, it’s a good thing I’m a Halloween expert!”

Why I liked this book- Otter is really cute. That is my main reason for picking this up. I was also really happy to read this great story. Otter is an awesome character, that has many qualities of a young child. The book has great illustrations that have a cartoony / whimsical feel, with bits of humor laced into them.

Activities and Resources- Make your own Halloween costumes and decorations! Be creative – can you reuse anything around the house in new ways? Can you recycle and combine old Halloween costumes to make a new one?

petepumpkinsPete the Cat: Five Little Pumpkins
By James Dean
32 pages – ages 6+
Published by HarperCollins on July 21st, 2015

Opening and Synopsis- Opening: “Five little pumpkins

sitting on a gate.

Synopsis: From Goodreads; “Pete the Cat takes on the classic favorite children’s song “Five Little Pumpkins” in New York Times bestselling author James Dean’s Pete the Cat: Five Little Pumpkins. Join Pete as he rocks out to this cool adaptation of the classic Halloween song!”

Why I liked this book- This is a fun Pete the Cat book! Kids will love to sing along to this, and grooving along with Pete! The illustrations will have kids smiling a mile wide, and then some. The Pete the Cat books are a fun mix of songs and writing. You can’t go wrong with a Pete the Cat book!

clarkdarkClark the Shark: Afraid of the Dark
Written by Bruce Hale
Illustrated by Guy Francis

32 pages – ages 6+
Published by HarperCollins on September 8th, 2015

Opening and Synopsis- Opening: “Clark the Shark looked over his list.

Synopsis: From Goodreads; “Clark the Shark is ready for his first big sleepover! He’s nervous about sleeping outside without his glow-fish night-light, but he doesn’t want anyone to know he’s just a teeny-tiny bit afraid of the dark. So Clark makes up a rhyme to help him stay cool: “Take heart, be smart, sharks aren’t afraid of the dark.”

But when the sun sets and his friends begin telling spooky stories, Clark’s voice sounds quiet and small and not brave at all. In this empowering tale about conquering nighttime fears, Clark the Shark learns how friendship can help light the way through the dark.

Why I liked this book- I really like the Clark the Shark series. Mr. Hale does a good job of describing the average young elementary school student’s life in the books. Clark is a very realistic character. I really like the humor in the illustrations (the game “Whirlpool” instead of “Twister”). In this book Clark has o deal with his fear of the dark. While this isn’t a Halloween book, it does deal with a subject little kids have to face on Halloween and I think it would be helpful to get kids to talk about their fears.

peekabooPeek-a BOO!

22 pages – ages 3+
Published by Chronicle Books on August 18th 2015

Opening and Synopsis- Opening[over two pages]: “Peek-a

Colorful pictures and lively, rhyming text—featuring bats, jack-o’-lanterns, and ghosts galore—help children predict what is peeking through die-cut windows. Read the clue…guess the rhyme…giggle wildly…and repeat!

Why I liked this book- I like the inter-activeness of this board book. There are little peep-holes to look through and guess what is on the other side. I love the word play on Peek a Boo and how it is adapted to a Halloween theme. Take a look at the illustration sequence below. It’s really quite fun to read aloud. Young kids will love this book!


Review! Immortal Guardians by Eliot Schrefer

19 Oct

immortalImmortal Guardians
By Eliot Schrefer
Series: Spirit Animals
Spin-off Series: Fall of the Beasts
Book Number: 1
192 pages – ages 9+
Published by Scholastic on August 11th, 2015

Synopsis- In Erdas, having a spirit animal is uncommon. It was even more so when four children, – Conor, Abeke, Meilin, and Rollan – summoned the four fallen Great Beasts of Erdas. But now more children are summoning the other Great Beasts – and getting them stolen! A man has found a way to alter the spirit animal bonds, and to steal animals and force them as his own. It seems the entire world is at stake, and there are only a few who can stop him. Will they be able to save Erdas?

What I Thought- This was an amazing first book for a new series! Mr. Schrefer brings you up to speed without spoiling much of the other books from the original story line. Mr. Schrefer’s writing style really played a huge part in setting up the new series, as he was descriptive enough to vividly create a setting and to give a realistic aspect to the characters and their spirit animals. I like how it keeps the older characters – and gives them a fuller background – but also brings newer characters into the series. You really feel for the characters almost immediately – one is shunned from his tribe, another’s city is destroyed, and one is bonded to one of the worst possible Great Beasts. The story is a fun one that has a great villain and a lot of mystique. The story is actually pretty gloomy, but has a lot of humor to even it out. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

Perfect Picture Book Friday! Who Done It? by Olivier Tallec

16 Oct

Susanna Leonard Hill has a feature on her blog called Perfect Picture Book Friday. It is a list of “perfect” picture books recommended by all sorts of people. I chose this book because of the overall uniqueness of the book.

whoduncoverWho Done It?
By Olivier Tallec
32 pages – ages 3+
Published by Chronicle Books on October 13th, 2015

Theme/Topic- Fractured Fairytales

Genre- Fiction

Opening and Synopsis- Opening: “Who didn’t get enough sleep?”

Synopsis: From Goodreads; “In this charming book, each page asks the reader a question about the lineup of characters featured on the spread. Sharp eyes and keen observation are necessary. There’s only one right answer, and it’s not always easy! Kids will love learning early concepts like expressions and positions as a natural consequence of their hunt for clues in the details of the lineup. It’s a book for all audiences: the seek-and-find call to action on every page makes Who Done It? a wonderful lap or parent read, while the whimsical art, distinctive horizontal format, and hip exposed board ensures this book will be equally appealing as engaging coffee table décor.”

Why I liked this book- This was a fun book. Even though it is meant for toddlers, it is still a great activity, as some of the answers aren’t that obvious. Anyone with a keen eye or toddlers who like a good mystery, will love this book. Mr. Tallec has created an original book that kids will love to read and play along with! I like how there is a nice mix between animals, objects and kids in the illustrations. The cool thing is that the book is part-board book and part-normal book, with thick covers and thin pages. The book also has a really fun shape – it is a horizontal book that gives a “flip-up” page type. I really like this book, and think it would make a nice bedtime story. The illustrations are very cute.


Activities and Resources- You (as the teacher/parent) pick out some images, or draw your own, with one that has the suspect in it. For example, “Who ate the last cookie?” and have a selection of pictures, with one guilty looking photo. 

Break out the magnifying glasses and create your own who done it mystery! Who left the bedroom light on? Who broke the red crayon? Parents or teachers can leave clues around for the kids to find and solve the crime.

The Nothing but Monkey Business blog has a great post with suggestions for PreK detective activities and resources – you can find it HERE.
