Amber Brown Sees Red
This was my first foray into Amber Brown and I'm not quite sure what I think of her yet. She's a bit snotty, for one thing. To be fair, she does have ...more

The Pigeon Needs a Bath!
I enjoy the pigeon very much, but this one didn't make me laugh out loud at all, which is really unusual for a Mo Willems book.

There is a Bird on Your Head!
This is my first Elephant and Piggie book (I'm behind the times, I realize) and I loved it. Mo Willems is almost freakishly talented at expressing emo ...more

Dawn and the Impossible Three (The Baby-Sitters Club, #5)
This was one of my favorite BSC books. I love Dawn and this story deals with some issues that really do arise with children in a broken home. The inci ...more

Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon
This was the only Amber Brown book I have read in which I did not find her to be very annoying. Apparently third-grade Amber is more tolerable than fo ...more

Amber Brown Wants Extra Credit

Thomas Edison
I was pleasantly surprised by this little biography. I think it's perfect for middle grades and it has a touch of personality. Thomas Edison is pretty ...more

Bink & Gollie (Bink & Gollie, #1)
Bink and Gollie are so much fun! I love the way Gollie talks--her vocab is a great way for young readers to practice sounding out harder words, and le ...more

Revealed (The Missing, #7)
Ay caramba. This book was so twisty turny it was ridiculous. The weird thing is, a LOT happens that you (and the characters) have to keep track of men ...more

Invisible Stanley (Flat Stanley, #4)
Decently cute, and less creepy than Flat Stanley. I like the matter-of-fact attitude that everyone in the story has about his invisibility. :)

Caught (The Missing, #5)
Not as good as its predecessors (Mileva's neatly tied up loose ends were a BIG stretch for me) but still very entertaining.

Danny and the Dinosaur (An I Can Read Book)
An older book that retains its charm. What kid hasn't fantasized about having a pet dinosaur? Danny is one lucky dude.

Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend (Scaredy Squirrel)
