Title: The Way to Bea
Author: Kat Yeh
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Release Date: September, 2018
The Way to Bea is about a girl named Beatrice whose best friend abandoned her for a new best friend. One day the librarian brings her to the Board Side office in the library. There she meets a girl named Jamie who like Bea, always wears headphones around her neck. She next meets a boy named Briggs who is the student leader of the library. The next day she meets a boy in a striped shirt named Will who she quickly becomes friends with. One day, Will says he wants to walk the third-biggest labyrinth in the country. That labyrinth is in the Legend Tower, close their homes. Most of the story follows this journey.
I like this book because it is a story of friendship and caring about others. This book is good for grades 2-5 and ages 8-11.
Title: The Baby-Sitters Club: Dawn and the Impossible Three
Author: Gale Galligan
Publisher: Scholastic, Inc.
Release Date: September, 2017
I like this book because it has a lot of emotion in it. The baby-sitters have a lot of problems and don’t have a solution for all of the problems. For example, Dawn the babysitter thought a kid was lost! She got the whole city to look for him. Finally, he was found. He was with his dad all along. Another time, the head of the club Kristy was moving and if there is no Kristy, there is no club. What are they going to do?
I recommend this book to ages 8-12 and grades 3-7.
