Kids Reviews

The Childrens Choice Book Awards arent the only way to let people know about great books. Kids at BookCourt can recommend books to other families by leaving reviews on the shelves. In the past year many talented kid book reviewers have filled the kids section with their recommendations. Heres a sample:

Alice, age 9 says When You Reach Me was and is too good to explain.

Alex, age 9 says The Alex Rider series are about a 14-year-old boy. When his uncle dies, Alex found out he was a spy! Wow! Now Alex has to take his place. Yow!!

Michaela, age 9 recommends The Name of This Book is Secret: Its a great book for kids who seek adventure and activity. It has tons of code making and breaking but takes place in the real world. (Its more convincing that way!) With obstacles of avoiding the thieves and figuring out the code it has weird jokes about secrets which makes the book yet more enjoyable!

And by far our most-recommended book or series is The Lightning Thief and the rest of Rick Riordans Percy Jackson series. Stella says One of the best books Ive ever read! It has clever and outsmarting characters and incredible Greek gods and goddesses! They have amazing adventures and do the most fantastic things on the way!

Eliza, age 10 says, The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is funny, exciting, and suspenseful. I recommend them!

And Alex, age 9 says Meet Percy Jackson, the 12-year-old kids who ADHD. Does your best friend have goat hooves? Or do you have a dad that drowned? Either way, read the books!

If you would like to add a review of your favorite book (or any book youve read and enjoyed) just stop by the kids desk at BookCourt and ask for a pen and a review card! When youre done well stick it on the shelf next to the book you recommended. Or you can just come by and read the reviews other kids have posted to find your new favorite book!
