This has been on of our busiest summers and our weekly prize drawing during summer reading was book reviews!
Summer reading participants ages birth-18 years could drop a book review into the drawing box at the Summer Reading Registration Desk for a chance to win a prize every Friday.
Here's a few of the hundreds reviews that were entered:
The Girl Who Owned a City by O.T. Nelson
Reviewed by Serena, age 13
Touching story how a street full of kids work together to help each other survive when their parents and friends are killed by a virus, sparing only children below the age of 13.
Centipede's 100 Shoes by Tony Ross
Reviewed by Matthew, age 4
I liked the book because it was silly. Centipedes don't wear shoes and socks and he had way too many to put on! Then he shared them with his friends and that was nice and silly, too.
The New Hamster by Isabel Campoy
Reviewed by Gregory, age 8
I like this book because its about hamsters and they are furry.
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Reviewed by Krystal, age 12
What I liked about this book is that it was a remade story of Cinderella but has more fairy tale people in it, like the ogres, elves and giants.
We'll be posting pictures from programs this week, so keep checking the blog!
