Who Was Albert Einstein?
(Who Was/Is…?)
by Jess M. Brallier, Robert Andrew Parker ( Illustrator), Nancy Harrison

Synopsis From Goodreads:

Everyone has heard of Albert Einstein-but what exactly did he do? How much do kids really know about Albert Einstein besides the funny hair and genius label? For instance, do they know that he was expelled from school as a kid? Finally, here's the story of Albert Einstein's life, told in a fun, engaging way that clearly explores the world he lived in and changed

My Review:5/5 Stars

I had to read a Non Fiction book about someone for school and I chose Albert Einstein. This book had great information about him.

It was great learning real facts about Albert Einstein. I learned what he was like as a kid and I learned about his different theories. He was an awesome guy. The Germans said he was a spy but they didn’t like him because he was Jewish and really smart.

I learned he had two wives and he had children. He also won the Noble Prize for Physics. Reading this stuff about him made me want to be a scientist more.

I thought Einstein was an interesting man. I would like to read more about him.

I’d recommend this book to kids who like scientists because it was a kid friendly book.

My Review

5/5 Stars

I like this book because they were in space and they saw a mysterious moon man.

I learned some facts about the moon and enjoyed a good adventure.

At one point I was scared because that they would run out of air in their tank because they only had two hours!

This book made me more interested about the moon.

I’d recommend this book to anyone who read Jack and Annie books or anyone who likes space.

Big Nate
Game On
by Lincoln Peirce

Synopsis from Goodreads

To sixth-grader Nate Wright, life is one big game. So when he suits up for any sport, he does it with an unmistakable swagger. From fine-tuning his trash-talking skills on the basketball court to his cocky ’tude in the soccer goal, Nate can be a bigger challenge to his teammates than their opponents.

My Review

5/5 Stars


This book made me laugh out loud a lot! I love reading about Big Nate and his friends. This book was about sports. My favorite part was when the baseball coach rake and it hit him in the face. The coolest part was during the baseball and Chester broke the sound barrier.

Big Nate needed to work on his trash-talking. He wasn’t the greatest at the sports. He kept getting hurt but he kept trying.

I’d recommend this to anyone who read Big Nate books and anyone who likes HILARIOUS books with sports

The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl

The Magic Finger
By Roald Dahl

Synopsis from Goodreads

The Gregg family loves hunting, but their eight-year-old neighbor can't stand it. After countless pleas for them to stop are ignored, she has no other choice -- she has to put her magic finger on them. Now the Greggs are a family of birds, and like it or not, they're going to find out how it feels to be on the other end of the gun.

My Review

5/5 Stars

This book was AMAZING. I thought it was funny that Girl turned the Gregg Family into humans with duck wings and the ducks had the house. I thought it was a good punishment for the Gregg family. I think they learned their lesson.

It was a funny book and made me want to read another one of Roald Dahls books.

I’d recommend it to people who like funny books, ducks and books that teach you a lesson.

After being run out of Boneville, the three Bone cousins, Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, and Smiley Bone, are separated and lost in a vast uncharted desert.

One by one, they find their way into a deep, forested valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures...

Humor, mystery, and adventure are spun together in this action-packed, side-splitting saga. Everyone who has ever left home for the first time only to find that the world outside is strange and overwhelming will love Bone.

My Review

5/5 Stars

I liked Fone Bone because he was brave and adventurous. I liked that he made friends with the Red Dragon. I think that Bone liking a human named Thorn is weird because he is not a human. I think she’ll come to like him though.

It was a great book with adventure, action, some funny parts, great story and really good characters and really good drawings. I’m excited to continue on with this series.

I would recommend this book to anybody who like funny adventure comics. Especially my mom and dad
