BUBBA AND SQUIRT’S BIG DIG TO CHINA
By Sherry Ellis
Have you ever wanted to dig a hole to China? If so, what did you expect to find? Gold? Jewels? A treasure chest? Bones? Did you follow your dream and discover what you expected or something even better? In BUBBA AND SQUIRT’S BIG DIG TO CHINA, an adventure story by Author Sherry Ellis, Squirt tells her brother Bubba that he can’t dig a hole to China. He says he can, so they take the magic shovel that Grandpa bought at a garage sale and decide to see if he’s right.
The digging doesn’t go quite the way they had expected and they soon find themselves in a new world. Where are they? Could it be China? Maybe. But they haven’t a clue how to get home.
Sherry Ellis has written a story that will have you turning pages to see what happens next. Bubba and Squirt have a mystery to solve and on the way they meet some very interesting characters. The big question is will they find their way home or will they never see their parents again?
BUBBA AND SQUIRT’S BIG DIG TO CHINA is a fascinating story of bravery, discovery, and fun that should appeal to middle-grade and even older readers that enjoy an adventure while learning some history along the way. The author has added a Glossary with Chinese words which is very helpful in reading the story. She also shows the correct way to pronounce the words and character names. A recipe for Chinese Dumplings sounds delicious.
I recommend this story for school libraries and classrooms, public libraries and your own library. And if you plan to dig a hole to China, be very careful. You never know who might be waiting for you.

THE ROWDY SISTERS
Carole “Lisa Lynn” Gilbert
Do you have sisters or brothers? If so, do you like to do the same things they do, or do you prefer to do something different? In THE ROWDY SISTERS by Author Carole “Lisa Lynn” Gilbert four sisters like to do different things. May likes to read. Her sisters prefer to play. So what’s a girl to do to find a quiet place away from her noisy sisters?
With delightful illustrations, the author shows us how May tries to get away from her sisters and have some peace and quiet. It’s impossible. They just will not let her read. Then one day she finds the solution to her problem, or so she hopes. What happens next is clever and fun and a great solution.
What does May do? You’ll find out when you read THE ROWDY SISTERS.
The expressions on the girls’ faces are perfect as they make an exciting discovery from their sister May. I recommend THE ROWDY SISTERS for school libraries and classrooms, and public libraries as well as your own private library. Happy Reading.
