Book Review - The Critter Club: Liz Learns A Lesson

 

The Critter Club is a series about elementary school children who run an animal rescue shelter.   I don't remember if an age was mentioned, but I guess these kids are in 3rd or 4th grade.   Book #3 is Liz Learns a Lesson.   Liz was so excited that summer vacation was about to start.  She would be able to do her favorite things - take an art class and take care of pets at the Critter Club.

Unfortunately, summer school was not a part of plans.   Math was not her best subject. The principal and her mom thought summer school would help her improve in math.  Liz was very disappointed especially since summer school was at the same time as art class.   She thought that this would be the worst summer ever.

In summer school, she found friends, a cool teacher and even a turtle for their class pet.  Her days were filled with summer school in the morning and the Critter Club in the afternoon.  The best part is that she did improve in math.  She even got an A on her last math test.

I started reading this book while I was in the library.  I thought this was just right book for my nine year old daughter who struggles with math and she has a love for animals.   It is a chapter book that is just right for children in grades 2nd to 4th grade.   You should also consider reading this book to your younger children.   A chapter a night at bedtime would be great.   Liz learns that a change in her plans is not the worst thing ever and taking the time to get help with a difficult subject will help in the long run.
