Children's Review Round-Up!!!



22929009

When food goes missing on Ed's farm, Detectives Wilcox and Griswold do what it takes to track down the thieves. In this case, Miss Rabbit's carrot cake has disappeared. Has it been stolen? Or eaten? Or both? Who dunnit?

"Readers ready for chapter books will solve the crime and then be surprised by the twist at the end. Here's hoping for more hard-boiled detecting from Wilcox and Griswold!" 
-- Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

My Review:  
My boys and I loved this cute and funny whodunit.   It was a fun introduction to the mystery genre for my first grader and refresher for my second grader.  We had so much fun trying to figure out who took the carrot cake.  I love the Wilcox, such a fun character....with all his police banter and serious looks.  My husband is in law enforcement so I found this to be great fun, as did the kids.  I highly recommend this great mystery with awesome illustrations!    5 stars

Fuzzwippers Make Great Friends encourages children to help each other in good times and when things don't go quite the way they planned. Fuzzevello & Spencer plan to go exploring during a family camping trip, but when Spencer hurts his ankle, they learn that staying flexible and staying together can make everyone feel better fast.

My Review:  

A great story about teaching kids how to deal with situations that do not turn out how they were planned.  That disappointments are also learning opportunities.  There are also lots of conversations points on how to be safe and to make good decisions.    4 stars

My Review: 
A heartwarming book about the many different ways we can define family!  A story that any child can relate to and one that is relevant to our changing family systems.  4.5 stars
