Book Review: Sonya Sahni and the first Grade - Its International Day by Soma Mandal
Sonya Sahni and the first Grade - Its International Day - Tim Williams,Soma Mandal

The way America is today. You would not think that we may need a lesson in the Melting Pot. I have do think we do. Our children need to know that we are all different and we come from different cultures. Yes we are American but we also have what our parent are or from.

This book put this introspective though a child eyes. It about a girl that is Indian and American. She having a bit of trouble fitting with her classmates. The pictures do the telling. It really is done well. I can see this being good for children and their parents. Young readers can read this book as well.
 

The author does it well. She show what it like for a first American born by Indian Parents. This is really show the meaning of the melting pot when you read this book. The children show off their cultures on this project the teacher plans. It called It International Day.

The Detective Dog - Julia Donaldson, Sara OgilvieĀ 
The Detective Dog - Julia Donaldson,Sara Ogilvie

While it doesn't adhere to the most basic conventions of mystery stories, and the plot raises more questions than it resolves, I really loved Nell the Detective Dog. The art is loose and free and feels very active, and Nell is just perfect. I love a clever dog.

 

But seriously, what is with that guy? And the wheel barrow? What? I don't understand.

I'm from Outer Space!: Meet an Alien - Lisa Bullard,Mike Moran

This book is all about Aliens!! What they are, what they do, where to find them. Despite the subject matter, it is not a scary book, though it is perfect for Halloween. Not to worry, Zeeton the alien is friendly and he delivers information about aliens in a light and whimsical way. He explains how aliens are portrayed in different cultures and what to do if you were to make contact with one. My favorite part of this book is the writing activity that is suggested at the end. It also has websites that teachers can visit in order to enhance learning if this book were incorporated in their lesson. The Monster Buddies series really keeps teachers in mind.
