Cat Moves to Outer Space Reviews
And for something a little different - written with my seven-year-old daughter :).
Cat Moves to Outer Space (Best Friends in Space #1)By: Debora Geary & Shae GearyIllustrated by: EJ LowellISBN: 2940013358126Published September 11, 2011 by Fireweed PublishingAvailable Format: ebookMy Rating: ★★★★★When Cat’s parents take a job in a space ship’s biosphere, Cat is pretty bummed she has to leave her biosphere with her favorite tree and fresh grown foods. Pretty soon, Cat is making some good and not-so-good friends and learning all kinds of neat things about space travel. When Cat starts talking with her new plant friends, she learns that they aren’t happy with the way they are being cared for. One bush in particular is very sick. It is up to Cat and her friend Arkali to help the poor plant before it is too late.This book is similar to the Magic Tree House series and is suitable for middle and upper elementary level readers.First of all, I love anything that is written by a young author! You can tell when an unhindered imagination contributes to a good book. This easy, fun writing style is perfect for younger readers. My son is six but reads on a 2nd or 3rd grade level, and this was perfect for him. The full-page illustrations break up the story nicely and help give the reader a better visual of the characters and some of the scenes in the story.I never imagined I’d be reading a book involving so much poop, but this was done in such an entertaining, honest way. It was actually pretty educational, teaching kids about compost and natural fertilizer. There is a lot more to properly taking care of plants, and it never hurts to play them a little music too. I am certain your kids will love Cat’s adventure on the space ship and the planet Draca as much as mine did.See this and other reviews at http://www.gatheringleavesreviews.blo...
From Lilac Wolf and StuffI have attempted to read chapter books to CW, including the Magic Tree House series, with no luck. I started this a couple days ago, because I knew I needed to read it so why not do my and their reading at the same time? CW loved it! Ivan is still too young but he did like the pictures. CW didn't want me to stop. The first night we read to chapter 10...after he negotiated 3 more chapters. lol We read it in 3 nights. It's not a big book, less than 80 pages I think.The pictures are pretty amazing too. They were drawn by Ej Lowell, high school student. I was amazed when I learned this...just today in fact.The other sweet tidbit, this book was also dreamed up by Debora's 7 yr old daughter. Ahhh, all the poop makes sense! Actually, how it was used in the book was great, it was all about fertilizer.There is a bit of witchiness in there too. Yeah, I'm going to add this to my Witchy Reading Challenge! It was easy to read out loud, and the story was enjoyable to all of us. Can't wait for more to come out. Too bad the illustrator has homework! Great book for boys and girls of all ages.
Looking books appropriate for a five year old who needs easy chapter books. I enjoyed the book and will share it with her in about a year. Still a little above her level but in a year she will love it as she loves planting stuff with her mom so will get into the fertilizer stuff!!!
Cute little children's book. Sweet, emotional... very much Debora Geary in a small, easy bite for kids.Lovely illustrations.
