    Though Carlos wants to be welcoming to his cousin Bernardo, who must share his room temporarily while his family relocates, he finds himself worrying when Bernardo proves to be a better soccer player than Carlos, and acts recklessly around Carlos s beloved pet geckos.I would place this book at the very highest end of the beginning chapter book spectrum, along with the Alvin Ho, Justin Case, and Mason Dixon series The tone of the story is suited to a second or third grader, and there are a few p Though Carlos wants to be welcoming to his cousin Bernardo, who must share his room temporarily while his family relocates, he finds himself worrying when Bernardo proves to be a better soccer player than Carlos, and acts recklessly around Carlos s beloved pet geckos.I would place this book at the very highest end of the beginning chapter book spectrum, along with the Alvin Ho, Justin Case, and Mason Dixon series The tone of the story is suited to a second or third grader, and there are a few pictures to help break up the text, but the vocabulary and particularly the use of Spanish phrases make it closer to a middle grade novel than a true beginning chapter book It would be a good choice for kids in fourth grade or so who are intimidated by novels, but ready for slightlychallenging material It would also be an equally good choice for advanced first and second graders.The black and white pictures by Laura Freeman consist of both full page illustrations of key scenes and smaller spot drawings that break up the text and convey character emotion There are also some appealing life like illustrations of the insects and lizards Carlos is interested in The final artwork was not included in the ARC, but the style appears to be similar to that of Jacqueline Rogers, who illustrates the Calvin Coconut books.Kids will like this book for its believable main character, its realistic dialogue, and its focus on animals and sports along with the central family conflict Spanish speaking readers will also enjoy the inclusion of words and phrases in their native language Science minded kids will also love learning all about geckos as Carlos tries to teach Bernardo to handle them properly

    Cute story about the conflicts Carlos has when his cousin comes to live with them for a short time Bernardo s behavior is annoying and upsetting when he gets attention from his father because he is better at playing soccer than Carlos Lots of good situations that show bullying behaviors and would lend themselves to some good classroom discussions Love the facts about animals embedded in the story, since Carlos is a true animal lover Great for grades 2 3.


  6. Margie Margie says:

    A chapter book for young readers who are progressing with their reading and vocabulary, this is a good addition for libraries, whether public or school The main characters are Latino boys which will be very appealing especially for those of that population to be able to read something about people like themselves Family is also important in this story as well as learning how to stand up for oneself.
