My Mum's Growing Down
Author: Laura Dockrill Illustrator: David Tazzyman
I don't read a lot of poetry, so didn't know what I would think about this book. There is a contents page, so can read it in order, or skip to the poems you think you will prefer first. None of the poems were really long, some of them were quite short. I preferred some more than others, the ones that were funny, and also the rhyming ones. I liked the book more than I thought I would. Not all poems are boring

Dennis and the Chamber of Mischief
Author: Nigel Auchterlounie
I thought this book was really funny, and full of adventure, which I liked. There were black and white illustrations in the book, but I didn't take that much notice of them. I liked the names of the chapters. The chapters were quite short. I would definitely recommend.

Football School: The Amazing Quiz Book
Authors: Alex Bellos , Ben Lyttleton Illustrator: Spike Gerrell
I have taken a big interest in football lately, so I was looking forward to this book, and liked the fact that its a quiz book. Even though I don't have a massive amount of football knowledge, I was looking forward to it, as I would learn new facts. I liked that I could check what questions I got right or wrong, as the answers were in the back of the book. You can fill it out at your own pace. I liked that it wasn't just boring questions, there were interesting and funny ones too.

KS2 English SATs Revision Guide: 2019 Tests
Author: Letts KS2
I enjoy my workbooks, and I've had a letts maths one which I like. It was easy to do independently, I need to ask my parents for any help. I liked that the answers were in the back, so once completed you could mark it, and see what the answers were if you got any wrong. Some bits were a bit boring, but I sometimes find that about English tests anyway, as I prefer maths, but over all it was good and very helpful in practising for my sats

Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens
Author: Nick Arnold Illustrator: Tony De Saulles
I was looking forward to reading this, as it was to do with space, which I love reading about. Also I've read a couple of other horrible history books, which I enjoyed. There is a contents page, so if you wanted you can skip to the areas that interest you more, but I read it in order. It was interesting to read. There was a quiz which was fun, and it told you the answers after, so I could see how many I got right. It wasn't just a fact book, the information was told in different ways, like a comic, cartoon, quiz, diagrams etc so it made it more fun and appealing.
