Allow me to engage in some nepotism here. Yesterday, tot came home and reported that she had started her own review blog pursuant to instruction from the teacher. Instead of the book reports that I used to write as a school child (or perhaps in addition to), tot and her class are learning to write book reviews on a blog. They then read each other’s blog posts and exchange comments. I about died. I asked for her permission to reprint the review which she graciously gave. The Humphrey series is one that we read together and have enjoyed thoroughly. We are now waiting for book 6 to be reprinted in paperback. I do recommend the series to parents.
Would you like to be a hamster trying to solve your classmates troubles? Well if you would read Suprises According to humphrey by Betty G. Birney.
Humphrey is a classroom hamster and is trying to solve his classmates troubles and on the weekends he goes with a classmate. One time he was going down a hill in a ball when he met a cat. he got in big trouble because the cat was trying to eat him. I reccommend this book to 8 year olds and up and I like this book because it is exciting and when you ever think humphrey is in trouble he actually is not. I would give this book five stars because it is a exciting fun loving story.
