To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My son is 12 and not an avid reader. In fact, he hates reading. Sadly, his school library does not have any books with African American illustrated characters. I wanted to find something relatable for him. I also wanted to find a book he would read to help with his Accelerated Reader points. He read this fast and shared it with a classmate when he was done. I have since purchased all books by this author and he read them all! Highly recommended!
My son is 10.5 and a strong reader loved this book and all fo the characters. Well-written and a great way to discuss issues such as bullying, diversity, family dynamics, adoption, and more. Keep the excellent work up, Jerry Craft! He can't wait for more!
This is the second book we read from this author and we love it. It has some stuff from today that kids can relate too. You know, their "lingo" lol. I look forward to more books from this author because my son actually enjoys reading.
