Read a Great Book? Write a Book Review....

Did you read a great book over the summer and want to share it with other kids? If so, click here to write a review. Those reviews are posted on our Palo Alto City Library Book Review Wiki. You can also read reviews from other kids. Here was our most recent posting (July 18) by Darryl, Grade 3:

Nim's Island by Wendy Orr
When Nim's father Jack was out to study plankton for three days, Nim was left on their island. She has an iguana and a sea lion to look after her. But when a storm keeps Jack from returning and trouble comes close, Nim has to be braver and stronger than she has ever been before.

Also your favorite children's librarians have also been reading over the summer! Click here to check out our favorite reads. Here was our recent posting (July 18) done by me:

No wonder all the kids LOVE Diary of a Wimpy Kid! It is hilarious, fast read. Greg Heffley keeps all of his personal thoughts and secrets in his diary. But as we all know, secrets have a way of coming out. His older teenage brother, Rodrick, steals his diary and threatens to reveal his deep dark secret. The great thing about this series is you don't have to read them in order. The drawings and captions are so funny! One of my top 10 books for 2008.
