Flay Stanley's Worldwide Adventures, The Mount Rushmore Clamity
Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventures #1: The Mount Rushmore Calamity - Jeff Brown,Macky Pamintuan

Flat Stanley is such a fun character to add to any classroom.  I would use this book and others in the series in 2nd grade or 3rd.  Many classes have made their own Stanley's and mailed them to friends or family in far off places.  When the Stanley's return, it is a great individual project to write about or do an oral report on where Stanley went and teach classmates about that state!  Often, participants send back photos of Stanley and his adventures. 

Including this book in a social studies curriculum would be an excellent idea so that literacy is spread to more than just language arts class!

Kickers: The Ball Hogs
The Ball Hogs - Rich Wallace,Jimmy Holder

Although I would not choose to use this book as a reading choice for an entire class, it is certainly a book that should be included in a class library for second through fifth graders.  Certainly, it is a book any soccer lover would enjoy!  The back and forth setting between the school day and the soccer games could get confusing to a lower level reader.  But, the message of teamwork is a strong one that children need to hear.  In addition, the main character provides tips for soccer players that young athletes will likely enjoy!

Teamwork - A.R. Von

There's a definite change the writing style between this book and Reunion. With the books being published 15 months apart, the reader can really see how Ms. Von has grown into her current style of writing.

Teamwork picks up with Wunder, Tank, and Pete on the hunt for 776; an infected unlike any they have dealt with before. The reason R.I.P made the trio the first 3-man team in R.I.P. history is obvious with this new hunt, though I was a bit surprised they'd chosen 776 to be the trio's first mission together.

There's less sex and more action in this fourth book to the series. Not that the reader will be left wanting. 776 is a major issue for R.I.P and the story mainly focuses on it and the problems it's causing. Don't worry, there's still steamy semi-zombie sex scenes, just not as much as when the series first started.

Again, because this is a gifted copy, I must bring up the errors. There's quite a few in here. While they shouldn't affect the reader's speed or focus, they are noticeable and should be looked into at the earliest convenience.

Despite the errors, this book offers everything the zombie lovers crave, action, suspense, and romance and I'm definitely looking forward to see what happens next.

Teamwork DOES end with a cliffhanger, but fans of the series should be used to this already.

I give this book 4 of 5 paws.

Rugnummers en teamwork - Barbara Scholten

Een leuk boekje, leuker dan de vorige, maar ik heb nog steeds dezelfde problemen als ik had in de eerdere boeken.

Falderie is nog steeds onzeker, zit bijna de hele tijd negatief te denken over van alles. Haar "relatie" met Tibbe, hoe ze aanvoerster is,  hoe ze denkt dat ze geen ideeën kan uitvoeren of dat ze niet weet hoe ze dingen moet doen en zo gaat het eigenlijk door. Ik zou wel eens willen dat ze wat meer pit heeft en gewoon haar best doet en niet telkens negatief denkt. Ook het hele gedoe met Tibbe was gewoon vervelend. Kom op meid, gewoon op hem afstappen en zeggen (of doen) dat je hem leuk vindt en dat je meer met hem wilt doen.

Dan hebben we nog Lola, ik vind en vond haar nog steeds een vreselijk, irritant, egocentrisch persoon. Ze denkt alleen maar aan zichzelf of aan jongens. Ik snap dan nog steeds niet waarom de meiden met haar vriendinnen zijn. Sorry hoor, maar ze geeft alleen maar om zichzelf. 

Verder was het wel leuk, ik vond het wedstrijd deel echt leuk, en ook mooi om te zien wat de meiden nou voor dingen bedachten om te winnen. Natuurlijk was het einde gewoon een gevalletje van "dat was te verwachten", maar nog steeds leuk.

Ik las ook dat er nog een nieuw boek uitkomt. Leuk! Ik zal hem zeker lezen.
