Monday Children’s Book Reviews for August 16

Miss Fox’s Class Earns a Field Trip by Eileen Spinelli

“The latest book in the Miss Fox’s Class series makes the most of a clever idea. When Miss Fox challenges her class to earn the money for a field trip to Roller Coaster Planet, they respond with enthusiasm. But their energetic fund-raising is repeatedly undercut by unexpected expenses: after dousing the visiting author’s suit, they must pay for cleaning; after breaking his glasses, they must pay for a new lens, etc. Teachers will appreciate the inclusion of real-life addition and subtraction, while kids will enjoy the buoyant humor.”       [JPB SPINELLI]

My Best Frenemy by Julie Bowe

“Ida May finally fits in at school after becoming best friends with Stacey Merriweather, who is universally liked by their classmates. But then Ida’s frenemy, bossy Jenna Drews, brings in a game of truth or dare, and all the girls are suddenly daring one another to misbehave. When Ida finds herself in the principal’s office, she’s scared into ratting out her friends and gets freezed out of the group. The only way she can fix things is to take a triple-dog dare: letting one of the girls pierce her ears. Will her BFF come to her rescue, or is this the perfect job for a frenemy?” The third book in the Friends for Keeps series.      [J BOWE]

Creepy Creatures is filled with exciting, full-color photos and fascinating facts about bats, snakes, spiders, and lizards. Meet true and false vampire bats, see a spitting spider nab its dinner, and much much more!”             [J590 CREEPY]
