Kids’ Book Review
This review is going to be a little different. This one is another special request from my 7-year old daughter, and it will be reviewing a series instead of just one book. My daughter just started reading chapter books this past summer. She was really resistant to reading chapter books for some reason, and she only wanted to stick to her picture books. I know all kids progress at different rates, but I really just wanted to find some way that I could get her interested in chapter books (and so they weren’t so scary for her!).
The first series she finally enjoyed as chapter books was the “Rainbow Fairy” series. I researched it, and the books looked like a great reading level for an emerging reader. I showed her one in the library and she said, “I guess we can check it out and see.” Well, she LOVES them now!!! In fact she has read almost every single one of them! Her NEW LOVE though is the Puppy Place Series by Ellen Miles, which we stumbled across at Barnes & Noble just a couple of weeks ago. She got fixated on the Fairy books and would not try any others until this series!
So glad she found something else to read that interests her! She loves puppies and kittens, so this is right up her alley. The first one she read was “Rascal,” and you will see each book is named after a dog and each dog is a different breed.

We are in the process of collecting ALL the Puppy Place Books! My daughter rated this particular book a 9.5 out of 10! What I like about the series is:
1. They are interesting for my daughter and she wants to keep reading
2. They are easy enough for a first time chapter book reader to comprehend
3. My daughter connects with the main characters (as she is an older sister too)!
4. The story lines are age appropriate and great for both girls and boys to read
5. The books in each series are numbered and easy to collect and line up!
6. They are only $4.99 each!
You can purchase these books at Barnes & Noble or on Amazon! Easy as that!!!
