Recommended Read

Our enthusiastic Year 6 book group from Kirk Sandall Junior school were given a selection of BookTrust Bookbuzz books to read and review. The group, called  #WeLoveReading, loved having new books to pick, digest and discuss with their friends, so we asked them which book they would choose to go into our libraries.

Their number 1 choice was The Last Wild by Piers Torday. On their recommendation, we have put a copy in our Central Children’s library and have several more copies on order to send to other libraries for children to enjoy.

Children's Book Reviews by Chatterbook Groups

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl 
Children in the Kirk Sandall Junior School Year 6 Reading Group are the most enthusiastic bunch you are ever likely to meet! They have named their group #WeLoveBooks and have just enjoyed reading Charlie & the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. It scored a scrumdidlyumptious  8 3/4 out of 10. 

Here’s what some of them said  –

‘This is a fun, exciting book about a boy called Charlie Bucket. I like the different named sweets. It’s really good and I would recommend this book.’ Tia

‘I really like the book…I would definitely recommend it to someone. It is exciting when people ignore the rules and go home. It’s funny when he makes up creatures that don’t exist.’

‘Mr Wonka already had Charlie in mind (to take charge of the factory) because the things were like tests. If they are spoilt or badly behaved, something would happen to them.’ Lily-Rose

‘Charlie is poor and hungry, Mike plays video games, Violet holds a gum record, Veruca is a very spoiled girl and Augustus is a big, fat, greedy boy!’ Ellie

‘Good similes on page 13.’ Aaliah

‘The front cover gave me the urge to open the book and read.’ Joe

“I liked this book because Roald Dahl used his imagination and made his writing original as some writers are afraid to do.” 9/10

“I liked the book because Charlie Bucket goes to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. I don’t like Veruca Salt because she’s a spoilt girl.”

“I liked this book because it is full of adventure and has surprises in it.”

“I thought this book was amazing! I would rate it 7.5 out of 10. It is amazing for anyone who likes sweets and chocolate.”

Grandpa's Great Escape by David Walliams

"I didn't have a favourite part, it is all too good"
Star rating: 4½/5

Book Review Display

Our Central Junior Book Club shared their 3 Fantastic Facts to cries of ‘Wow’ and ‘Don’t believe it!’ proving that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction. They wrote some of their facts down and illustrated them to create a new non-fiction display in Central Children’s Library, which can be seen in the photo. The book they’re reading this month is called The Universal Vacuum Cleaner… No, it’s not to teach children hoovering skills but full of fun riddle poems to read and solve! The club for 7-12 year olds meets monthly
