Kids Read Picks, vol. 20

Kids Read Picks presents book reviews by kids using Mesa County Libraries. Don’t be surprised if you can’t find some of these books at the library or in stores (yet): kids who attend Kids Read Book Club virtually on Tuesdays at 4:00 have access to books before they are officially published. They also write reviews of books they recommend to younger siblings and friends so recommendations of great books for kids of all ages are found here.

Rating System:

  • 5: Hard to imagine a better book
  • 4: Better than most
  • 3: Readable
  • 2: Needs work
  • 1: How did it ever get published?

Pea, Bee, & Jay by Brian “Smitty” Smith 

I liked this book because there were lots of funny jokes like the title and raspberries making raspberries. I would recommend this book to people that like adventures and people that are younger readers.
