Perfect Picture Book Friday! Simple Machines: Wheels, Levers, and Pulleys by David A. Adler

27 Feb

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 it is a great nonfiction, educational book.

simpleSimple Machines: Wheels, Levers, and Pulleys
By David A. Adler
Illustrations by Anna Raff 
32 pages – ages 4+
Published by Holiday House on January 30, 2015

Theme/Topic- Simple Machines

Genre- Nonfiction

Opening and Synopsis- Opening – “Machines make work easier.”

Synopsis – From the inside cover- “We use simple machines every day without realizing it. Teeth are wedges and so are knives, forks, and thumbtacks. Many toys are simple machines. Slides are inclined planes, and seesaws are levers. This introduction to levers, wheels, pulleys, inclined planes, and more explains how simple machines simplify our lives.”

Why I liked this book- This is a rather cool nonfiction book. It shows you everyday examples of the simple machines, and how they work. For example, did you know that our teeth are wedges, and that a mountain road can be an inclined plane? There are also really nice illustrations that show what is going on clearly. The book clearly explains simple machines in a kid-friendly way.  This book is a great read-aloud for young kids. I really love this book, and would recommend it for a class project.

Activities and Resources- 

Go on a simple machine scavenger hunt! Try to find each of the six types of simple machines around your house.

The Center of Science and Industry (COSI) has a great webpage devoted to simple machines. Click HERE to go THERE.

There’s a great Simple Machines Unit / Activities at Parents.com HERE.

Creative Kid Thursday! Meet Daniel Johnston Author and Magazine Publisher!

26 Feb

Welcome to Creative Kid Thursday!

17-year-old Daniel Johnston is the mastermind behind the blog READERS AND WRITERS PARADISE. He is an excellent writer – I’ve featured some of his stories on my blog before. Now he has ventured into new territory. He has designed and published a kid’s magazine. No – it isn’t a magazine just meant for kids, it is a publication written, laid-out and published by kids! All the written content in the magazine is by kids – but anyone will enjoy reading it!

kidswritersmafg

Daniel has also recently written a children’s book, called “The Wrecking Ball Employee”. Daniel’s description of his novella follows: “It’s a hilarious tale called The Wrecking Ball Employee where a kid attempts to get a job but is more successful in things like getting eaten by a girl who thinks he’s a hot dog and being accused of poisoning by a government agent.”

Here is a BONUS! A preview of the novella!

Chapter 1: The Dare

“I bet you can’t get a job there.”

“I can too!” I protested.

Carol stopped and looked straight at me. “Look, there’s a jobs wanted sign. If you can get a job there I’ll…”

“Let me play with your dog for a day,” I interjected.

“Yes,” she nodded, and then grew an evil grin, “but if you fail to do so within the next three days, you have to go to that scary movie with me. And no putting your hands over your face!”

“No way!” I protested, but she simply shrugged.

“Then do it.”

.

It was a really rotten deal, and in bed that night falling asleep was a hard task amongst all the kicking I was

doing to myself. How could I have been so stupid! I repeated to myself again and again.

Sure, I could’ve still tried to call it off, but then I would’ve been a coward. We’d even done the secret handshake, after she’d called me a wimp if I didn’t take the challenge. That kind of insult from a girl isn’t something you can just take. Worst of all, if I’d have backed off it would’ve been accurate

Oh, you may think that the downside to losing the bet wasn’t really that bad; after all, what kid wouldn’t want to watch a scary movie.

But this wasn’t just any scary movie.

This was the scary movie.

No, I told myself to finally get to sleep, there was no way out, but also nothing to worry about.

I’d just have to get that job.

~

“What’re you guys doing this week?” Mrs. Mecre, our fifth grade teacher, asked us in class the next morning. I don’t know if she always actually wanted an answer to customary questions like that, but she usually got plenty.

“Eddie here’s going to get a job!” Carol announced loudly, prompting everyone to turn and stare at her. Even Mrs. Mecre changed from an exhausted expression to an amused one. I, on the other hand, was not happy. I’d been stupid enough to get suckered into for Carol’s dumb bet, so the least she could do was not blab it to everybody.

But of course that’s exactly what she was doing.

“Uh-huh,” Mrs. Mecre said wryly. “And what job is that?”

“A job at Bordeaux’s,” Carol explained. “They’re hiring.”

There were scattered snickers across the room. Bordeaux’s was the local food market, so most of us had been their plenty of times. But that was a lot different than trying to get gainful employment there.

“Hey,” I defended myself, rising from my seat, “what’s wrong with trying to do a little work? That’s more than I

can say for you losers.” I sat back down, but not before I stared pointedly at Henry, the biggest of those losers. He

predictably returned the favor, sticking his tongue out at me.

“You realize, of course,” our teacher commented, “that Bordeaux’s only hires people eighteen and older,

and only with a high school or even college degree.”

My face flushed, but before I had a chance to respond Carol jumped in. “There are ways around that,” she promised smoothly.

Mrs. Mecre merely chuckled and got on with the lesson, but I took that to heart. For the remainder of the

morning I found it hard to concentrate on The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler or the 2nd Continental

Congress. Already the clock was ticking on the bet, and my brain was stumped.

“What did you mean there are ways of getting around it?” I asked Carol eagerly when lunchtime finally came.

She shrugged. “That’s for you to figure out.”

Watching her walk past me to the food aisle I could only think one thing: Oh, no!

Chapter 2: Hot-Dogging

“Look, Mommy, it’s a hot dog!”

“Where, sweetie?” The mom asked her little girl.

“Right there,” the girl told her, pointing directly at me.

“Oh, my,” the woman said, as a person is apt to do on spotting a walking hot dog.

Seeing through the eyeholes was a little tough, but I managed to maneuver my way over to the meat section, where food in my likeness lined the aisle. I took a deep breath, and began to dance, in full view of all the customers around, which was a couple dozen.

“Get your hot dogs here!” I called, trying to deepen my voice. “Hot dogs!”

Trying to see wasn’t easy given my rapid movements, but I miraculously managed not to hit anything. Anyways, if I fell over maybe people would come over and then I could convince them to purchase a few dogs.

“Come on, get some hot-diggities over here!” I called, starting to get a little hot and tired inside the full body suit.

“Mommy, I want to eat that hot dog!” remarked the little girl.

“Olivia, that’s not a real hot dog,” her mother tried to explain. “It’s just a person dressed up as one.”

Wham! All of a sudden the world turned upside down and I fell to the floor in a heap. Everything went totally out, my vision just a collection of lights. Darn, I knew the hot dog costume would turn out to be a bad idea.

“Thanks, mister,” I said when I felt someone’s hands on me, assuming they were trying to help me up. But a second later I felt myself being attacked!

“Olivia!” the woman cried, and I could feel her footsteps pattering quickly against the hard floor. “Get off that hot dog right now!”

I couldn’t believe it! I was trapped in a hot dog costume, being attacked by a tiny girl. Quickly, I tried to roll over on top of her, but before I had a chance she took a big bite…right on my left arm.

“Ow!” I howled, grabbing my arm in horror. When that girl said she wanted to eat me, she really meant it! Not only that, but she picked a bite!

I stumbled, trying to get away before the girl could try it again, but only succeeded in landing flat on my face. I braced myself, but luckily the unholy terror was already accompanied by her mom once again. “That doesn’t taste like a hot dog,” the girl complained.

“Honey, it’s not!” her mother explained. “Like I said, that’s just a person wearing a costume.”

Painfully, I managed to stand up and get to my feet. I pulled down the top part of my costume and waved to the little girl. “Hi,” I said warily.

“Are you ok?” The mom asked, her voice flooded with concern. “I’m so sorry.”

If being thrown to the floor and bitten like a piece of meat is ok, then I guess so. But out loud I simply said, “Yeah, I’m alright.” Then I looked around and noticed how many people were standing around who had witnessed the incident.

“Maybe y’all should buy some real hot dogs now,” I suggested hopefully.

The attempted cannibal shook her head decisively. “I’m never eating a hot dog again as long as I live.”

There was nothing I could do but breath a long, weary sigh.

Daniel has generously agreed to give 30 copies of the full book away to the first ten people who order a copy of the new Kid Writers Magazine (Go HERE to learn about it and buy a copy!), and to the first 20 people to subscribe to the Magazine!

Book Birthday and Review! Mission Titanic (39 Clues: Doublecross Book 1) by Jude Watson

24 Feb

missiontitanicRELEASED TODAY! A NEW 39 CLUES SERIES!

Mission Titanic
By Jude Watson
Series: 39 Clues: Doublecross (Book 1)
237 pages – ages 8+
Published by Scholastic on February 24, 2015

Synopsis- Ian Kabra is getting used to running the Cahill family empire. With his second-in-command Cara Pierce, they have it all under control. That is, until someone calling himself the Outcast, hacks into the mainframe Cahill computer, rearranges a meeting scheduling, and arranges a coup. Ian is literally thrown out of the Cahill mansion. The Outcast then challenges Ian. The Outcast has fiendishly recreated 4 of history’s worst tragedies, and Ian must stop the tragedies before innocent people get killed. The Outcast demands that Ian cannot involve outsiders. So, that means that… he must find Amy and Dan in their seclusion, and… *shudder* ask them for help and convince them to come back.

What I Thought- The 39 Clues remains one of my top favorite series. The idea of it is very cool – a different author writes each book in the series, taking the story where they want it to go. It is cool to read the different styles of authors in each book. It is an action-adventure series with complex characters and intriguing plots for kids. The online game that goes with the books is fun too – check it out at http://www.The39Clues.com.

After Gordan Korman wrapped up things so nicely in the  4th book of the Unstoppable series (Flashpoint) -I was wondering where the 39 Clues series was going to go next. Thank you Scholastic for getting Jude Watson to write the first book of this new series! Just like Ms. Watson did with the first book in the Unstoppable series, she sets up what is sure to be another excellent Cahill adventure! I like how the story seems to revolve more around Ian Kabra, as Amy and Dan had retired from the Cahills, even though they do get involved. There is a lot of mystery going on in this book and I was second guessing many of the character’s motives. I like that the story line makes you think and is not predictable at all. Like the Unstoppable series, there are 4 planned books in the Doublecross series. July 28th is WAY too long to wait for the second book in the Doublecross series to come out. Book 2 is titled Mission Hindenburg by C. Alexander London.

Review! The Lost Castle Treasure (Sir Kaye the Boy Knight – Book 2) by Don M. Winn

23 Feb

sirkay2Book 2: The Lost Castle Treasure
By Don M. Winn
Series: Sir Kaye the Boy Knight
178 pages – ages 8+
Published by Rising Phoenix Press on December 3, 2014

Synopsis- Sir Kaye, Reggie, and Beau are back in an all-new adventure! Kaye and Reggie (who is telling the story) are on their way to live at Castle Forte with the Queen of Knox. Along the way, Kaye receives a threatening message  – a stick-man dressed like Kaye hanging from a tree -from an anonymous knight. Upon coming into the town, Kaye is tossed about by mean-spirited knights and ridiculed in front of the residents. While at the castle, the other knights aren’t much better. They don’t think that Kaye, a mere boy, deserves to be a knight. When Queen Vianne gets a letter from a neighboring country saying that they need a debt paid off immediately to stop a war between the two countries, Kaye volunteers to find the castle’s lost treasure to pay the debt and prove himself. Kaye was all set to go  on the quest when a vile knight got Kaye so angry that Kaye foolishly agreed that if he doesn’t find the treasure in time, he would lose his knighthood. Now Kaye has everything to lose. Add in a haunted castle, and Kaye and his friends are in for quite an adventure.

What I Thought- This was a great book in the series about a young knight that is coming of age and his relationships with his friends. Reggie (one of Kaye’s friends) is a great character that you really get into his head. Kaye becomes more distant in the book, with all of the pressure of losing his knighthood and finding the treasure. Reggie feels left out and useless, even though he really is doing a lot. There are black and white illustrations that  seem to make all of the characters come to life. I really like the adventure in this book. It lets Kaye and Reggie explore the castle while still doing good for the kingdom, and the stakes are rather high too, creating some tension and a fantastic plot for young readers. The Sir Kaye books are completely appropriate for all ages and are a great pick for parents of young advanced readers looking for exciting adventure stories for their kids.

I give “The Lost Castle Treasure” five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

Review! Stick Dog by Tom Watson

23 Feb

stickdogStick Dog … a really GOOD story with kind of BAD drawings
ritten (and [badly] illustrated) by Tom Watson
Series: Stick Dog
189 pages – ages 7+
Published by HarperCollins on January 8, 2013

Synopsis- Stick Dog is a homeless dog, but he’s happy. He’s never known any different, so he has it good. He lives in a dry pipe under a highway with a discarded old mattress to sleep on.And he has tons of lost balls and frisbees from the park he lives by. Stick Dog has good doggy friends – Karen (a dachshund), Mutt (a… mutt), Stripes (a dalmatian. Don’t ask), and Poo-Poo (a poodle. Also don’t ask. ;) )).  And they love one thing (besides being friends), and that is hamburgers. In the summer, they all go to the park on an epic journey and try to find abandoned hamburgers.

What I Thought- Why I have never read any of these books before now – I will never know. I now <3 Stick Dog. If anything, above all, this book will make you hungry. It mentions food on a lot of pages – I like food. The book reads a lot like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but it is geared toward younger kids. The story is of a boy telling the story of Stick Dog for school. The first chapter is titled “I can’t draw, okay?” and the boy explains why the drawings in the book are – well – really not that good. They are nice stick-figures, but that’s not the point. The story is funny and features Stick Dog as the main character, the boy sometimes gets side-tracked in his story-telling, and mentions slightly odd topics, but that just adds to the wackiness of the book. Altogether the story is hysterical (if you like silly, wacky humor), and a fairly short read. The book is sure to get even the most reluctant reader involved in the story. There are 3 Stick Dog books out now and a fourth coming out in May 2015. Young kids will love this book.

VoltronVoltron: From Days Of Long Ago (A Thirtieth Anniversary Celebration)

Edited by Traci N. Todd

Includes: Jeremy Corray, Marc Morrell, Joshua Bernard, Brian Smith, Jacob Chabot

152 pages – ages 10+
Published by Perfect Square on October 28, 2014

Synopsis- From the publisher “Thirty years ago, America was introduced to Voltron: Defender of the Universe. This is a detailed look at the Voltron universe, including the story of how Voltron took the U.S. by storm and continues to be culturally relevant today.”

What I Thought- For those of you who do not know what VOLTRON is, it was a cartoon (a cartoon my parents grew up with and loved) about a team of 5 space defenders that rode around in mechanical lions but then the lions combined to make VOLTRON the awesome evil fighting robot. I actually have a VOLTRON toy. :)

voltron1

This book explains the awesomeness of VOLTRON well and would be pretty interesting for anyone interested in anime. This amazing collection of all things Voltron – TV shows, the beginning, toys, comics, etc. The book is in 2 parts – the first one about Voltron’s behind the scenes creation, and the toys, and the second part about the TV Show history of Voltron (what goes on in the TV Show). I believe that any fan of Voltron really needs to get the book. It is attractively bound and would make a great collectible. There is even a bonus comic at the end of the book!

Now Josie will tell you about some comics she likes.

Hi, it is Josie. I like Hello Kitty a lot. I found Hello Kitty books I wanted to read and review. 

I have 2 books I will tell you about.
hellokitty1Hello Kitty: It’s About Time
By Jacob Chabot, Ian McGinty , Jorge Monlongo,  and Giovanni Castro

Series: Hello Kitty (Book 6)
64 pages – ages 6+
Published by Perfect Square on February 3, 2015

Summary – from the publisher “It’s time for beach parties, dance contests, last-minute birthday gifts and time machines! Plus, journey inside a cuckoo clock and much, much more! Past, present or future, Hello Kitty and her friends are having a blast!”

What I Thought – Hello Kitty is my FAVORITE. Isn’t she cute? I’ve read other books in this series and I like this one just as much. This book has a bunch of stories in it. The stories don’t really have words (there are a few) but the pictures tell the story. I like that Hello Kitty goes to some cool places in the book. I especially like the one with the monster who comes out and yells at Hello Kitty but then they have a party together. I like how Hello Kitty is drawn in the book.

Now my next Hello Kitty book.

This one is very cool.

hellokitty2Hello Kitty: Hello 40

A Celebration in 40 Stories (plus one for good luck)

Foreword by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm, creators of Babymouse

144 pages – ages 6+
Published by Perfect Square on October 7, 2014

Summary – from the publisher “In 1974, Hello Kitty stepped on the scene, and she’s had the world wrapped around her little red bow ever since. Here, some of her biggest fans—from comic artists to muralists to toy creators—pay tribute in story and art.”

What I Thought – Isn’t Hello Kitty so  cute on the cover? I didn’t know it was her forty year birthday! This book is so cool. It has stories 40 Hello Kitty stories from all different people! What is really neat is all the people drew Hello Kitty how they would draw her. So they all look kind of different but they are all Hello Kitty. The stories are pretty much with no words (like the regular Hello Kitty stories).  The foreword part is by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm. They make Babymouse. I love Babymouse too. I met Ms. Holm in Lititz at the book festival. She was nice. There are other parts in the book where all the artists say what they like about Hello Kitty. That was nice. My favorite story in the book is Hello Kitty in The Maze of the Minotaur by Gene Luen Yang. It is SO funny. I LOVED seeing all the different artwork. I like art a lot and it was cool to see how all the different Hello Kitty stories are drawn.

Review! Duke ‘N’ Matt: Rescue Road Warriors by Rhonda Paglia

18 Feb

dukenmattDuke ‘N’ Matt: Rescue Road Warriors
by Rhonda Paglia
Matt Pi, contributor
40 pages – ages 5+
Published by CreateSpace on August 5, 2014

Summary- Duke, a cute and friendly red beagle, tells the story of how he and his adopted human, Matt, help other animals by driving them all around the United States to be with their new families. Duke and Matt have been together since 2009. They rescue dogs from puppy mills, shelters and dogs that the owners can’t take care of anymore. This story tells kids how Duke and Matt work with many other volunteers to transport dogs to safe places.

What I Thought- This is a wonderful nonfiction story. It really makes you smile – partly because of the cute pictures of dogs in it, but also because of the happy story. It does mention puppy mills, but describes them in a kid-friendly way (the mommy dogs only have puppies, and they can’t leave their crates) – some of the dogs are not cared for correctly etc. Mrs. Paglia wrote a great story that informs you in a simple way about dog rescue, told from the point of view of Duke the beagle. The story covers a part of animal rescue that a lot of kids (and maybe some adults) don’t know about – how dogs are matched with adoptive or foster families, sometimes way across the country, and how the dogs get to their new families. There is a ton of resources in the back of the book that covers everything from what rescues are to definitions of terms to the geography of the United States! This is an uplifting, informative book that both adults and kids can enjoy.

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

Review! The Inquisitor’s Mark by Dianne K. Salerni

17 Feb

inquisitorThe Inquisitor’s Mark
By Dianne K. Salerni
Series: The Eighth Day (Book 2)
352 pages – ages 8+
Published by HarperCollins on January 27, 2015

Synopsis- Jax Aubrey is unique. He and his guardian Riley Pendare/Pendragon are Transitioners – people who are able to experience a special eighth day (nicknamed “Grunsday”) between Wednesday and Thursday, and have a family magic talent (Jax’s is inquisition, Riley has the voice of command, etc.). They are able to protect (and fight) the Kin – super-powerful magic people, all with different talents. Some Kin, like Evangeline, are good, while some Kin are evil and want the eighth day to be the only day.

All was going well, until Jax (who was in hiding)’s former best friend, Billy, was kidnapped because he knew Jax. Not only that, but he was kidnapped by Jax’s uncle. And Jax’s dad had told Jax that he had no other relatives, besides his mother’s cousin, so what is going on? When Jax is forced to join his family, and the evil Transitioners that they serve, he can’t believe it. They work for the enemy and they want Jax to join them. But, Jax is loyal to Riley and Evangeline.

What I Thought- This was a very thrilling book. It explains a lot about Jax, and Transitioners in general. There is a lot of mystique added to the plot and the characters. Jax, especially in this book, is a character you can care for. His family is working for the enemy, and they want Riley and Evangeline in their clutches. The story draws you in, and gets you asking questions. The story is appropriate for all ages, and the publisher rates it for ages 8+. But there is a lot going on in the plot that may make it a bit hard for younger readers. This is a great series, and I cannot wait for Book 3!

I give “The Inquisitor’s Mark” five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

The Sanctum Series Book 2: Scarlet’s Escape by Katrina Cope

15 Feb

scarletScarlet’s Escape (The Sanctum Series Book 2)

By Katrina Cope

338 pages – ages 10+

Published by CreateSpace on June 26, 2014

Synopsis- Before, Jayden was an orphan who had lived on the streets. Now, he lives in an ultimate school/campus called The Sanctum, run by the kind elderly man, Avando. Jayden has lived there for about a year now. The school, while devoted to education, also helps fight terrorism with advanced technology. Jayden and his friends help with scouting out and fighting the terrorism, from a distance of course (using robot people and remote hacking, etc.). But things start going wacky around The Sanctum, and it looks like the technology that they have is glitching and the school’s super computing AI, Scarlet is acting wonky. What if the technology is being used incorrectly? And who would do that?

What I Liked- This was a fun, adventure-filled book – as good as the first one in the series (see my review HERE)! While you don’t need to read the books in order, it would make a little more sense to do it. Jayden and his friends are wonderful characters, and everything that they do is realistic, and they are all strong characters. The terrorism fighting is an intriguing plot line. There is implied violence in the book, nothing gory (the kids fail to save a hijacked passenger plane from crashing into the ground, but save it from crashing into a crowded building, just into a field, and the newsfeed they watch afterwords implies that people died). It’s nothing that a tween couldn’t handle. The book also uses d*** (or d***mit) here and there – no other cussing. The story itself is a good one with a solid plot. The title of the book threw me. Scarlet is the super-computer running The Sanctum, with amazing Artificial Intelligence, and I thought she would be rebelling in this book, but that’s not the case. This is a highly enjoyable action series and another example of a well-done self-published series.

I give this book five out of five bookworms.fivebooks

Perfect Picture Book Friday! Red: A Crayon’s Story

13 Feb

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 it really shows how we need to look inside of a person, and not judge by appearance or expect them to be a certain way.

redRed:A Crayon’s Story

Written and Illustrated by Michael Hall

Hardcover: 40 pages ages 4+
Published by Greenwillow Books on February 3, 2015

Theme/Topic- Being yourself

Genre- Fiction

Opening and Synopsis- Opening – “He was red.

Synopsis (from publisher) – “Red has a bright red label, but he is, in fact, blue. His teacher tries to help him be red (let’s draw strawberries!), his mother tries to help him be red by sending him out on a playdate with a yellow classmate (go draw a nice orange!), and the scissors try to help him be red by snipping his label so that he has room to breathe. But Red is miserable. He just can’t be red, no matter how hard he tries! Finally, a brand-new friend offers a brand-new perspective, and Red discovers what readers have known all along. He’s blue! This funny, heartwarming, colorful picture book about finding the courage to be true to your inner self can be read on multiple levels, and it offers something for everyone!”

Why I liked this book- This seems the ultimate “be yourself” book. It shows that if you just judge by appearance, you can get an entirely different outlook than on what’s inside the “wrapper”. The illustrations are quirky and fun to look at. I like how the white page is really “paper” for the crayons to draw on. That was pretty cool. This is a wonderful book, and I was happy to review it. “Red” is a nice crayon who you care for. There is some humor in the story, because the reader instantly knows that Red is blue. This is a nice book for diversity teaching.

Activities and Resources-

There is a printable activity and teacher’s guise to go along with the books at the publisher’s website. Click HERE to get them.

Get some crayons and make an adventure for them! Or, have the crayons DRAW the adventure for them!

Or how about getting coloring pages and have kids color the pages colors that aren’t the “normal” colors for the picture – like this one – I think the woolly mammoth wants to be pink with a little brown. ;)
