Just a book for younger kids...however I think these are funny and so short I read them :) I am not going to review though, but they are Christian :)
Anyway! Sorry for being so out of the loop with goodreads. I haven't been reviewing or adding any of the books I have read lately! But now that I am done with school I will try to remember everything I have read and add + review it ;)

I love these books for kids and am eager to share them with grandsons. Wonderful lessons of how to get through life's hiccups, how to relate to friends and family, and how to enjoy a life full of love and laughter. Love Beverly Lewis, no matter who her audience!

The 2nd book in The CulDeSac Kids series, it features Abby hunter at the front of the story once again. This time she is trying to bake a special cake for her newly adopted brother...shhh!'s a surprise, and she is also trying to solve a mystery for her best friend Stacy. Will she be able to do both? Will she be able to do even one?!

I read this book to my 4 & 6 year old daughters and they loved it. Good to read aloud to young children, but as a read-by-myself for ages 7-10.

Chicken Pox Panic (Cul-de-Sac Kids #2) by Beverly Lewis is a cut story for 7-10 year old girls. Abby Hunter is focused on planning a special party for one of her adopted brother’s first birthday in the U.S. Then one of her friends begins to wonder if she is adopted. Abby worries that the special day will be ruined when the cake plan falls apart and chicken pox spreads through the neighborhood.

The Cul-de-Sac Kids books are Christian, but not preachy. They are a quick, fun read.

This story is good for teaching kids how to "make lemonade out of lemons." Abby has all these big plans for giving her brother the most wonderful birthday party ever, but that is before one by one things all start going wrong. However, instead of giving up, she improvises and in the end everything turns out great. This is a good lesson for kids on how to be flexible and turn things around. Even if it isn't perfect it can still be good.

Another great book by Beverly Lewis!

Everyone has chicken pox and poor Abby is trying to plan the best birthday party ever for her brand new brother. She handles the situation well with humor and compassion, taking time along the way to help her friends.

I like Abby and wish I'd had a friend like her as a kid. Great series of books. I'll be back!
An engaging story about how how the spread of the chicken pox interferes with a surprise party Abby is planning for her adopted Korean brother. The ending is a creative and funny solution. In this book, the children work together or on their own to solve problems, and they do not approach their parents for help.

Cute, simple story. Reference to one child's "hyper medicine" that wasn't necessary. Seven year old son is already over the she felt like a "jitterbox" that's repeated throughout the story.
I hope I never get chicken pox!
It was ok.
