June Parent Circle

It’s time for our June Parent Circle reviews! Check out the excerpts below and click through for the whole post.

Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann
Available in Club Shop and as part of the Pinkalicious Pack in SeeSaw
Reviewed by Chasing Supermom

“It’s not just pink…it’s Pinkalicious! Just about every little girl has a love affair with pink, and the children in your life (especially the girls) will fall in love with this headstrong, fun-loving little girl with a passion for pink. The Kann sisters, Victoria and Elizabeth, have brought to life an unforgettable character who is sure to charm the hearts of little girls for many years to come. With charming prose and wonderfully creative illustrations with a vintage flair, Pinkalicious will engage and delight young readers.” Read More

Usborne: Mi primera enciclopedia del mundo
Available in Club Leo
Reviewed by Spanglish Baby

“As a parent raising bilingual children, my favorite part of Mi primera enciclopedia del mundo is that it allows me to expose my children to vocabulary they wouldn’t normally be exposed to. I mean, while we speak Spanish at home all the time, it’s not like we necessarily talk about science, geography, and history all the time. One of the biggest worries that parents of bilingual children have is that our children’s vocabulary in Spanish won’t be as extensive as it’ll be in English since they get schooled in the latter, but books like Mi primera enciclopedia del mundo can definitely help in this arena.” Read More

The Kane Chronicles #3: The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan
Available in Club Shop, Arrow, and TAB
Reviewed by 5 Minutes for Books

“Rick Riordan makes his characters sound so REAL, and it’s so easy to relate to them. They’re so familiar by the end of each book. His writing is just so funny. All of his characters have a pretty sarcastic outlook on life, making light of basically anything that happens.” Read More

Guinness World Records 2012
Available in Club Shop, softcover version available in Lucky, Arrow, and TAB
Reviewed by She Saved

“My son cannot get enough of this book, and I remember feeling the same way when I was a kid. It is packed FULL of fun facts and it is so fun (and so fascinating!) to check out the amazing photos and see the crazy lengths that some people will go to just to set a record!” Read More

Folk and Fairy Tales Pack
Available in Firefly
Reviewed by No Time for Flashcards

“When I got a chance to take a sneak peek at the Scholastic Book Club selections for June I was so excited to see this seven-book pack of folk and fairy tales. I know so many of you homeschool and/or are doing summer camp at home this year and use weekly themes. These seven books would be a good addition to your fairy-tale theme or any family library.” Read More
