    This is the second book I have read by Madonna. Who knew she could write! I wish I had daughters to share this book with. (My 3 boys would probably think it's a tad girl, like the first one). I borrowed this from the local library. There is a great lesson about a boy who moves to town that all the girls like, and how they resolve the issue when all the girls like him. Again, like the first book, there are very adorable illustrations to go along with the story.

    Kisah persahabat 5 gadis remaja; Nicole, Amy, Charlotte, Grace, Binah. Persahabatan bisa sangat berwarna! If you start to feel jealous of someone, try to feel happy for them instead. Good things will come your way, too p 52.You can't just love your friends when they are nice to you. That's when it's easy. You have to love them when they are being complete dorks, too. p 60.Simple story but meaningful.

    The two best things about this book are 1.) the charming illustrations, and 2.) the moral of the story. Madonna's music may be better than her writing but it's still a good story. I think this book would be best read out loud. It's a great for any pre-teen girl. I think it has a lot of great ideas and issues for slumber party discussion. I'll certainly be sending copies to all my the young girls on my x-mas list this year.

    This was a cute book actually, but it was a little bit on the conceited side in some ways. She wrote it for her daughter knowing her daughter would face ridicule by other children because she was Madonna's daughter. She basically just sort of explains that the other kids only make fun of the other little girl (aka Lourdes if you read between the lines) because she is better than they are, and as is ALWAYS the case, they are just jealous. blah blah blahI really did like the illustrations, though.

    Yup, another English Roses' adventure in teenager world. Kali ini, English Roses yang selalu bersama kemana-mana itu mendapat tantangan ketika seorang anak baru bernama Dominic de la Guardia datang. Naturally, secara ada cowok keceh, otomatis dong cewek-cewek pada berebut perhatiannya? Gak terkecuali The English Roses. Apa semua suka Domonic? Ya iyalah! Tapi Binah terlalu sibuk mikirin kehidupannya sehingga tak ada waktu untuk mikirin cowok.Daaannnn, seperti yg udah-udah, cewek yg nggak ca-per ke cowok malah justru yang mendapat perhatian khusus dari si cowok, bukan begitu, bukan? Dan itulah yang terjadi. Dominic malah memperhatikan Binah dan membuat English Roses yang lain cemburu. Mereka jadi nyuekin Binah deh!Nah, tuh kan? Did I tell you that men can be a source of disaster between friends? Hehehehe... so is girls sih :p jadi jangan emosi dulu dong :) Trus gimana tuh The English Roses menyelesaikan masalah mereka? Penasaran gak? :D

    This series is definitely for girls. It has a feel good vibe to it. In this book the other girls get jealous of the main character, Binah, when the guy they all like has a crush on her. It's simplistic but, for little kids, it's a nice read.I also think the pictures are really pretty. However, on one of the pages where the boy raises his hand to volunteer with the girls he looks completely different than he does in the rest of the book which threw me off a bit...either I'm looking at the wrong kid or this was an earlier illustration that wasn't edited out.

    I read this book to the fourth grade girls in my reading class. They loved it, and I thought the message of friendship was sweet and offered a good message to girls their age. I also liked that the teacher in the book was portrayed as someone they could go to if they had a problem. The illustrations are very colorful and cute.

    A new boy comes into the roses class and Amy,Grace,Charlotte and Nicole all has a crush on him. what they didn't know was that he has a crush on Binah. So they sign up for being a helper after school and the new guy signs up too and makes the girls even more jealous by asking if Binah needs help. Then, some kind of mushy thing happened at the end.

    Okay, I found this in a bargain bin and bought it to check it out. It was surprisingly good. I would not hesitate to recommend this for kids.

    Madonna - who would have thought back in '85 that she'd be known for a series of kids books? Pretty good ones, even . . .

    Grafisnya oke, ceritanya simple tapi oke untuk anak-anak usia pra-remaja jaman sekarang. Sedikit surprise bahwa penulisnya adalah Madonna yang itu.
