Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

Image
There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2) by Jill Murphy

The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2) by Jill Murphy is the sequel to The Worst Witch (Worst Witch, #1). At just under 100 pages, it was a super quick read for me as an adult. I never knew this was a book series until recently, and I had to buy the series to read.

Children who are just beginning to read chapter books and too young to read the Harry Potter book series should definitely pick up the Worst Witch series to read, especially little girls since it is based on a girls boarding school for witches.

What I loved about this second installment of The Worst Witch book series is that it teaches lessons about friendship, jealousy, and the lesson of getting into trouble for something you did not do.

There isn't anything I can really complain about when it comes to The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2). It is age appropriate for kids between the ages five through eight and teaches valuable lessons. Fun and engaging, it even kept my attention as an adult. What more could a parent want from a book for their kids?

The only downfall for me was that it didn't seem quite as in depth as the first installment. Because of that, I only gave The Worst Witch Strikes Again four out of five stars, but I definitely recommend this book to young readers.

Synopsis of The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2):  Mildred Hubble is starting the summer term off on the wrong foot despite saving the school at the end of the spring term. Since she was sent to Miss Cackle's office one too many times, Mildred has to prove that she is a responsible student by showing the new student, Enid Nightshade. When things get out of control, Mildred is in trouble once again and only has one more chance before she is expelled.
