Halloween Bingo - New Release
The Perfect Mother - Aimee Molloy

The Perfect Mother is a suspense novel published in 2018 about a woman whose baby is kidnapped when she leaves him with a babysitter to go out for drinks with a group of friends from a new mothers group. I'm using it for the New Release square.

Are You My Mother? - P.D. Eastman

 

Brief Review:

Are you my mother is about a little bird who is just born but his mother is not there when he comes out of it egg and gets confused where or who his mother is.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Are you my mother could be used to learn the different types of species of animals and what their babies and moms would look alike and what makes each one different.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Direct Reading Assessment

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 4 because it shows students/children the differences between the types of species and what makes them different.

Mother Bruce - Ryan T. Higgins,Ryan T. Higgins

Bruce the bear is a grumpy bear that prefers to be alone and eat his eggs. One day his hard boiled eggs turn out to be live goslings. And to make things worse those goslings think Bruce is their mother. Bruce tries to get his new companions to fly south but he can't seem to get rid of them. What is Bruce to do?

 

A great book to introduce prediction to younger grades. This read aloud book is great for a whole group activity and will have you students giggling and active as you read.

Slow suspense building to a superb ending
The Perfect Mother - Aimee Molloy

Don’t be overwhelmed by the substantial amount of characters in this book. Some are just stand by, you’ll want to focus on: Francie, Colette, Nell, and Winnie. (Maybe Token on the side but he’s more a supportive role) it may seem haphazard and all over the place which is why it’s best to just focus on these four moms.

 

The chapters switch from different points of view and there’s that one lone chapter that’s presented in first person. It’s a mystery as to who that is until much later, but it certainly does keep you guessing on who that person could be. It may seem obvious at first and during the reading you feel so sure you know who that is and what’s behind the entire story but the blind side moment comes fast in the last few chapters and you’re left with a shock.

 

The plot slowly builds to a good mystery and suspense. The thrilling bits get you at the end. It’s a satisfying read, the characters grate on you (Francie and Nell are the ones I disliked the most), but it’s the suspense and the ‘keeping you guessing’ bits that get the reading going.

 

So although it may seem like it’s all over the place, give the book a chance and read. It’s well worth it with the superb ending.
