Kylie Jean Hoop Queen

Title: Kylie Jean Hoop Queen
Author: Marci Peschke

ISBN: 9781404859623

This another of Kylie Jean's adventures on her way to becoming a Beauty Queen. This time basketball is her passion and she must learn what hard work and practice can do for you, but sometimes even then you lose. From getting pledges to finding uniforms for her team, Kylie is always on the go and learning something new around every corner.

I really like these little chapter books especially made for girls. This one is another cute chapter in the life of this little eight year old. The illustrations seem to jump off the page and you can't help but smile. I really liked the fact that it was simple enough for the 6-9 year old reader, but still had a little challenge to them. My daughter who is actually 10 but is a struggling reader has had so much fun with these books. Finally a chapter book that isn't way over her head with the amount of pages that gets her overwhelmed, but enough pages that it doesn't seem like a 'baby' book. Wonderfully written and excellently illustrated the launch on 1/1/2011 is going to be a good day with four books of this series coming out!

Marci Peschke is an elementary school librarian in Texas. She is married and has a cat at home named Phoebe. Two kids have graduated from her house and now live on their own. She sounds like a fun librarian with contests and reading events, she really wants children to learn to love to read! According to her profile, she is already looking for more adventures for Kylie Jean.

Another 7 out of 7!

This book was given to me from Capstone via NetGalley for the purpose of a honest review. No other compensation was made and all thoughts in this review are mine.
