A Week in the Woods

Book Review
Rich kids are snobs and slackers. They think they're too good for anyone else, and that they don't have to work hard at anything. That, at least, is the opinion of fifth-grade science teacher Mr. Maxwell, and the super-rich new kid, Mark Chelmsley, is showing no signs of transcending the stereotype. Or is Mr. Maxwell just too anti-elitist or ego-driven to notice? Once again, the talented Andrew Clements (Frindle, The Janitor's Boy) allows adult characters to "come of age" right along with his adolescent characters in the most refreshing and insightful of ways.

Mark has low expectations of his new school in rural New Hampshire, and he'll be there for less than four months anyway, so he can't let himself get attached. It's the glory of the countryside around him that shakes him awake--and the urban boy's first...

From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2–Young Avery arrives at Cowboy Camp feeling self-conscious and inept. He is allergic to horses and beans, he cant twirl a lasso, and his name is all wrong. In the end, though, its Avery who outsmarts Mean Black Bart during a midnight confrontation and becomes a hero. The text is concise, and the print is large and bold. The illustrations are funny and colorful, particularly the scene in which Avery spits out a mouthful of beans. The adult characters have exaggerated features, particularly the villain, who has a scary chin and a nose to rival that of any witch. This book will be appreciated by any child who has shared Averys concerns about not fitting in with a group.–Polly L.

Swallows and Amazons (Godine Storyteller)

087923573X

Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
Alex Jennings performs this beloved classic of English children's literature in splendid fashion. His shaded character portrayals and enthusiastic narration make it clear that he loves the book. Published in 1930, Swallows and Amazons is about six children who sail, camp, and find timeless adventure during a holiday in England's Lake District. It is a literate book full of magic for children and adults, which Jennings's reading amplifies. The many characters are distinct individuals--from the Australian mom to a neighboring farm wife to serious older siblings and the head-over-heels enthusiastic younger kids. Jennings's pace quickens when the sailboat battles occur and relaxes when the children collapse around the fire. Listening, we lose ourselves in the golden days. Let's hope that BBC Audiobooks plans to produce the...
