Shelves: kids, proofed
I was super excited to be one of the first proof readers of this book. Not just because my sister wrote it and it's about an amazing nephew but for my love of basketball. This book will introduce the sport of basketball and reinforce some of its unique vocabulary for a young audience. If you have kids you read to or kids that are beginning to read, get this book in their hands! ...more

My younger daughter read this to the family for our daily bedtime reading. She loved the rhyming. I enjoyed the story and how it describe parts of the game and used some basketball terms. I feel this would peak readers interest in the sport.

“It’s Time to Wake Jake” by Amanda Beth Connelly, is a cleverly written book. It takes the reader on a journey of a day in Jake’s life when he has a basketball game. The story begins in the morning and ends after the game. It’s upbeat, positive and explains some elements of the game. The illustrations are colourful and gives the young reader an opportunity to follow the story through the descriptive drawings. I recommend this book for all young readers!!

Great book. It's good to see children are being introduced to something that may spark their interest in something that gives them exercise and also gives them an alternative to tv and video games. ...more

This book is super engaging! My sons are 5 and 6 and both learning to read and found this book to be easy enough to sound out!
An added bonus is they loved the rhymes and have me read it over and over at bedtime.

It's Time To Wake, Jake! is such a great and fun read. You can see the time and effort that was put into making it a perfect read for kids who love sports, or kids who just enjoy a good book. Adults, you won't be complaining either when kids ask you to read it several times a day! ...more

I loved this book and so does our little girl. Easy to read and it’s a fun way to teach kids about basketball. I would highly recommend!

Both of boys (3&5) love rhyming books and sports, so this was the perfect combination! A super cute read.

An educational book that’s fun for both kids and parents to read! Love the rhyming and how it teaches about basketball and sportsmanship.

It’s Time to Wake, Jake! is perfect for the little sports lover in your house. Particularly if you have a little fan of basketball. It teaches all the equipment, terminology, parts of the game and - perhaps most importantly - sportsmanship. With a quick, fun flow and great rhyming scheme my kids were zoned right in the whole way through! ⁣

What an awful, poorly written, fame- chasing book. I will not be giving this to the child who loves basketball. He doesn't have have the concept of fame being an indicator of success put on him any more than society already does. And as for the non rhyming pages..... ...more
