Review Round-Up: Books for Beginning Readers, July 2016

I have been doing these round-ups for a whole year already! Though I will no longer be the chair of the easy readers and early chapter books category of the Cybils this upcoming season, I still love beginning reader books, so for now I plan to continue rounding up reviews each month. If there is a blog you know that regularly reviews beginning reader books, please let me know! I subscribe to a whole bunch and always Google to look around for more, but I want to make sure that each round-up includes as many sites as possible so there are balanced views of each book.  Now, on to the links!

Easy Readers

Just a few easy reader reviews this month, mostly from the usual blogger suspects.

Becky's Book Reviews shared a post about Hill of Fire, a Reading Rainbow book first published in 1971.

Sal's Fiction Addiction and Mundie Kids both bade fond farewells to Elephant & Piggie with their reviews of The Thank You Book.

Sal's Fiction Addiction also reviewed a new Toon book, A Goofy Guide to Penguins. Another Toon book, Blip! was reviewed at Mom Read It.

Geo Librarian reviewed Ibn Al-Haytham: The Man Who Discovered How We See

Carstairs Considers, a blog which reviews literally everything, including Christmas ornaments, posted about Jane Yolen's Commander Toad and the Dis-asteroid.

Finally, Jean Little Library reviewed Noodlehead Nightmares.

Chapter Books

Amazingly, there are no two reviews of the same chapter book this month!

Jean Little Library reviewed Have Fun, Anna Hibiscus, Doodle Adventures: The Search for the Slimy Space Slugs, Most Valuable Players: The Gold Medal Mess, and The Great Mouse Detective: Basil of Baker Street.

Geo Librarian reviewed two series titles, Detective Gordon: The First Case and When I Am Happiest, as well as two nonfiction titles, Diving with Sharks and Together Forever: True Stories of Amazing Animal Friendships

Becky's Book Reviews reviewed two Patricia Maclachlan books, Waiting for the Magic and White Fur Flying, and two titles from The Whodunit Detective Agency series, The Diamond Mystery and The Hotel Mystery.

Sal's Fiction Addiction had two reviews: Jasper John Dooley: Public Library Enemy #1 and HiLo: Saving the Whole Wide World.

Other posts were Weekends with Max and his Dad (Waking Brain Cells), The Story of Diva and Flea (Sonder Books), Commander in Cheese: The Big Move (Kids Book a Day), The Infamous Ratsos (Librarian's Quest),  and I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 (Story Time Secrets).
