Roving Kidlit Reviewer, Age 8, Reviews this Series on a Ranch in Hawaii!

Why do our Roving Reader Leaders review children’s books in parks, bookstores, libraries, and on playgrounds and at ranches? First of all, because it’s fun. Second, when we’re out and about, kids often ask what we’re doing–and we can spread our enthusiasm for children’s books. Michael and friends have reviewed books in a number of states, including Montana, Connecticut, Oregon and New York. They’ve reviewed books on city streets, in taxis, and in ski lodges.

Two Boys, Age 6, Review Scooby-Doo Book: “The World Should Read This!”

review Scooby-Doo book

Michael and Levko, age 6 (at the time this was filmed), review the Scooby-Doo book, “The Mystery of the Aztec Tomb” by Laurie Sutton, saying “The world should read this.”

These founding members of the Roving Reader Leaders loved this book, which is one of many “You Choose Stories: Scooby-Doo” books from Capstone that invite kids to choose a number of different endings. Michael and Levko reveal their favorite part–a funny part–and think hard about a rating before giving it 6 million stars.

Not only do our Roving Reader Leaders review books; they also interview authors. Michael was thrilled to interview the author of this book, Laurie Sutton. He asked her about some of the choices she makes, made a special request, and got a promise from her. Watch his interview with her here:

How do kids become Roving Reader Leaders? Good question! They simply join our club here: Join the Club! You can learn more about Michael, Levko and the founding members of the Roving Reader Leaders here: Meet our Reader Leaders

Why are the kids called “roving” reader leaders? Good question! Many of our book reviews take place in gyms, parks, taxis, museums and on city streets and playgrounds. Our literary experts rove around, sharing their love of books wherever kids can be found!

It all began when book lover Michael, now age 7, decided to start reviewing books. He thought it would be fun to do book reviews in fun places. Since he takes his books everywhere, we began shooting reviews on the Oregon Coast, in Montana ski lodges, in New York taxis, and on playgrounds all over Portland, Oregon. Soon his good friends started joining in the fun.
