I don’t know why it is, but many boys seem to have an uphill battle with reading. It can be a real challenge to get them to work on reading comprehension especially, so when I am working with them one of the exercises I like to do is read to them and have them tell me about what we have read. This book excels in this particular way. The kids I have read it to are really captivated by the manga style illustrations, and they can easily relate to Cameron. Mrs. Whisker is not portrayed as some evil ogre who only exists to make Cameron’s life miserable, and Michael is not a typical meat head jock. Johnny is a great role model character. Altogether, it creates a situation for them to succeed with comprehension because they are engaged with the content and can’t wait to tell me about what I read to them.
Bottom line: This is a great book to read with kids, and it is a great book for older kids to read; especially those who are a little uninspired right now.
I think there is a paucity of such books and that’s why books like this one are so much more appreciated. I really love it and would highly recommend it to all parents and their little children.
Review: I absolutely LOVE books that teach a lesson without being pushy. This story is about a young boy who falls in love with Football, so much so that he chooses to not do well in school. The story ends with a great lesson about education, and the story is illustrated very nicely. My oldest daughter, who is 7, loved this book because she loves to read but is having problems understanding some books. She enjoyed this because even though she loves to dance and wants to become a professional tap dancer, she also must have goals. I'd recommend all parents to read this book to their school aged kids!
