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.
We love Ranger in Time and this one is no different. My kiddo enjoyed learning about Hurricane Katrina (we live far away from NOLA and he has never been there). He understood the neighborhoods that were hardest hit and how the hurricane’s destruction is still present. For that, I’m so thankful to Kate Messner.
My 8-year-old son has enjoyed every book in the Ranger in Time series so far, and this one was no exception. As a parent, I love the historic education provided by the author at the end of the stories.
We stumbled upon this series of books at the school book fair and enjoyed them so much that we sought out more books. This particular book is our 2nd purchase and he wants to buy more! I like how the author takes real life events but puts it on a child's level and helps them to understand it. Great read!
When choosing a read aloud, it is important that the story be interesting, that it moves at a quick pace, and the plot be complicated enough for students to make predictions and inferences. This is a light read but well written story.
