Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story.

Book Review: Sick Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg

book review sick day jitters julie danneberg

Sick Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg opens with teacher Mrs. Hartwell calling in sick to school.  When the substitute teacher doesn't show up, the other faculty and staff members fill in and chaos ensues.  Told from alternating perspectives, we see what several of the students think as well as what Mrs. Hartwell does on her sick day.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Charlesbridge for the digital Advanced Readers Copy of Sick Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg.  I was excited that my request to review this book was approved.  I received a copy for free in exchange for my honest review.

When I requested this book, I wasn't aware that it's part of a book series.  This children's book was exceptionally well written, and the illustrations are absolutely fantastic.  This is the perfect book for children between the ages of five and eight.  It reminds me of a modern day version of Miss Nelson is Missing (Miss Nelson, #1) by Harry Allard.  Even as an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline, and it would be a perfect addition to a teacher's classroom, school library, and/or public library.

Five out of five stars is what I give Sick Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg.  If I could give this book even more stars, I would.  Don't miss out on this children's book.
