Schoenbert, Jane and Illustrated by Evans, Cambria Stuey Lewis Against All Odds: Stories from the Third Grade 144 pgs. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2012. $12.33. (Rating: G)
Stuey is now in 3rd grade. He loves space and astronomy and misses his dad who is an astronomer. Luckily they are studying all about space in school and are going to have an awesome field trip. Stuey also has to worry about Mother’s day and finding the perfect gift and trying to produce a pet for pet show!
I just read this book yesterday and I can hardly remember it, so it’s pretty forgettable. Nothing stood out as bad or as really good. It was really short and easy to read, maybe too young for 3rd graders.
