Latest Review: The Sword Swallower and a Chico Kid by Gary Robinson

Post by ReyvrexQuestor Reyes » 08 Jul 2018, 00:38

This is a good book to start the kids with in word appreciation. I am averse to kids being given these Anime comic books and TV because at an early age they would be introduced to violent actions, even fight scenes with fatalities. Toni is a very lovable hero, not with a laser gun or samurai, but with brooms and household gadgets doing common chores. Children should have that notion that saving the world starts at home. Thanks for the great review.

This book sounds great for kids. However I feel the reviewers comment on the word “rescue” being to hard or a word kids wouldn’t understand is miss guided and ignorant. Books/reading are/is meant to introduce new more difficult words, that is how one grows threw reading.

A Superhero in a children's fiction is surely going to draw eyes and ears from a kid. Sounds like an interesting book!

These are the best types of children's books. Teach them important tasks in a fun and engaging way while also keeping the language simple enough for them to learn to read. In my experience, kids especially want to learn to read if the story keeps them interested. My sons are teens now, but if they were still young, I would definitely like this book for them. Thanks for your insightful review!

The book is for kids, and for adults also, for reading to kids. Thanks for the nice review. I presume this is purportedly to raise the vocabulary level of the kids to some level, not obtainable from simple peer association.

A great way to get children into reading, I’m looking forward to reading and using this book in the future! Reading is always such a good thing to love doing and to also encourage good behaviour through a role model is even better!

Thanks for the review. Teaching a child how to read in a fun way and that too by a superhero is an amazing concept. This one is a great option to gift children. :)

I would rate this book a 3 out of 4, the book is child friendly. It is fun to read and, i just read it to my 3 year old daughter and she loved it. New vocabularies for her that she is pronouncing well. child friendly and fun to read as the illustrations are okey.

I did not give it a 4 because there are some pages that did not go with the content, e.g Tony like to read, Tony likes to rescue animals,these two are put in the same picture. One cannot read and rescue an animal at the same time. each illustration needs to have its own picture.
