Hi there book lovers, your friend Sara here! If a book is written for kids, shouldn’t we ask the kids to tell us how they liked it? That is exactly what we do in this wonderful section – ‘book reviews for young readers, by young readers’!
Thanks for pouring in all your wonderful entries.
Here is 9 year old Sanjith D from Chennai sharing a wonderful review of his favourite book. He is interested in reading books related to Space and celestial events.
Name – Blast to the Past
Author- Scott Nickel
Publisher-Stone Arch Books
The book’s cover page was a dinosaur chasing David and Ben.When I saw the front page, it was so fun. I got impressed.
I got this book from a kids library. I wanted to read it to know more about dinosaurs.
The story is about two boys who get a time machine from their uncle and planned to retake a test, but they traveled a long way back instead.
The characters are David, Ben, Mrs. Franklin and Darrin. David and Ben are brothers.Mrs.Franklin is their school teacher and Darrin is their Uncle. David and Ben traveled back past few days, in order to retake a test which they failed.
The writing style was very easy to understand. The illustration was so good and meaningful. My favorite part of the book was when they were trying to escape from the past, a dinosaur took the remote and when they were trying to come back, they traveled to future instead.
After reading the book, I got to know more information about dinosaurs.
If I were one of the characters, I would change the reason for which they used the time machine. I would instead use the time machine to save people from danger.
The best age group for this book would be from 7 to 10 years
I would give the book 4.5 stars out of 5*
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
