The Book Nook Review is a great little site run by bibliophile and certified librarian Megan Wilson that specializes in helping parents pick reading materials for their kids that are family friendly. Megan recently reviewed KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue and we are happy to report it passed muster.
Here is an excerpt:
In this first volume of KidVenture, Steve Searfoss takes his reader through the ups and downs of reaching for a goal. Several times Chance wonders if all the work is worth it. Through conversations with his parents and lots of math, Chance will learn just how much work it takes to run a successful business.
- The family relationships presented in this story are delightful. Chance has regular conversations with his dad about his business. He also has a personal conversation with his mom. He takes his sister on as a partner.
- Each chapter has 3 discussion questions to allow for conversation about the issues Chance encounters. Readers will have a chance to discuss what they would do or how they would proceed. This book lends itself to being read aloud.
