You Can Do It! (The Golden Pearl Book 1)
You Can Do It! (The Golden Pearl Book 1) was written by Audrey Cuff.
While I love the theme of this book, I had some issues with how the book was written. The book focuses on Faith and Samantha, two little girls who are being excluded from playing baseball because they are girls.
Unfortunately, most of the book was talking heads. The author tried to get around this by using words other than say/says and ask/asks, but this is extremely awkward and a sign of an amateur writer. This book gets 3/5 stars from me.
Millicent Doesn’t Like Me…And That’s OK
Millicent Doesn’t Like Me…And That’s OK was written by Kali M. Cox.
Another great message. Again, though, there were a couple of issues. In this case though, they were minor ones.
I really enjoyed this story about respecting differences.
There were a couple of minor errors within the story–a run-on sentence, a problem with awkward wording on one page, and a spot where the wording was a bit too formal for the story. The word respectful isn’t one that a lot of children use. It’s very formal, and I would have said that that the girls treat each other with respect or that they get along. Again, it’s very minor, and just me being picky.
This book gets 4/5 stars from me.
Learning Together With Sally and Kate
Learning Together With Sally and Kate was written by Sarah K. Taber.
This is a simple, but cute story about Sally and Kate building snowmen. The story focuses on shapes and counting. It gets 5/5 stars from me.
Based on Book Reviews: Edition 23, I recommend both Learning Together with Sally and Kate and Millicent Doesn’t Like Me…And That’s Okay.
