As a middle school English teacher, I have my students read this book along with the other books about Brian and his adventures. It is a well written series that holds the interests of my students. I would recommend this book to kids between 11 and 14, especially boys.

This is a must read of young and older alike! It wraps up the Harry Potter stories in a satisfying way. A little on the scary side for a 7 or 8 year-old, but it brings kids older than that into reading.

This book is socially conscious on many levels. I read it because kids in my 5th class are reading it and I loved it. I have recommended it to many of the other children. The book is well written, exciting, and explores a multitude of themes. I feel that this is an important book to read if you are interested in reading about animal rehabilitation, doctors without borders, cancer, and other social themes.

My ten year old daughter brought home a couple of Cam Jansen books from the school library and was actually reading!!! So, I checked out Overstock and ordered 7 more for her. She used to struggle with reading and I knew if she could just find something she would enjoy, it would help. It has and this is the first year she isn't getting extra help in reading at school! Great books for young kids.

Septimus Heap is a fun book to read with kids. This is the second book in the Septimus Heap Trilogy. Septimus is the seventh son of the seventh son and is therefore considered extremely magical. He is the apprenticed to one of the most powerful good wizards at the castle. This book is what I would consider a Disney-ish version of Harry Potter. It is much less dark and violent and bad things keep happening to villain while good things happen to the heroes. Even so, I enjoyed reading it as a read out loud book with my three kids aged 7-15. The only reason I didn't give it more than three stars is that the plot was extremely predictable.

I saw this book on a book club review from a TV Morning Show. All the kids loved it from there, so I thought I would give it a try for my 3rd grade son. My son hates to read anything, he seriously struggles with reading. This book was written in a way that kept his attention and he would have read it in one sitting if he had the time. Every morning on the way to school he would tell me what happened, all this with so much excitement, it brought tears to my eyes to actually see him excited about reading. He said the illustrations sprinkled through each chapter really assisted in understanding the story line.

"Tales from the Hood" is Awesome! My children and I have become big fans of the Sister's Grimm series of books and this latest is absolutely wonderful. I wasn't as impressed with the one right before this in the series but this one made up for it! My 9-year-old daughter couldn't put it down and my 7-year-old son is reading it now (he is only in the 1st grade but is an accelerated reader) it is a tough read for him though. I would say these books are more for the 10 and up group there are a lot of words I have to translate for him and they are pretty long books! As for the actual book...well you find out some interesting things about Mr. Canis and Little Red Riding Hood...and then there is Goldy Locks...but I don't want to give too much away so you will just have to read it yourself! We can't wait to see what happens next... Overstock did a wonderful job with shipping and handling--hardback book, excellent condition, got here quicker than I expected and was a nice surprise for the kids.

I love the Magic Tree House book series. My children love reading these books from Kindergarten until 4th grade. Each of the books in Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House series captures my children?s interest and introduces them to different historical places and times. My kids have so much fun reading her stories; they do not even realize they are learning. Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve is the 30th book in this series. At first, I was worried that the content might be too scary for my girls. However, the story was adventurous with just enough suspense for their young ages. The inside flap reads, "The castle looms dark against the light of the moon. Giant ravens circle in the sky. The wind whistles through the empty windows. Merlin the magician needs someone to find out what has happened. But who is brave enough to brush the cobwebs aside and go through the heavy doors? Who is smart enough to solve the mystery of how the castle became haunted and return it to its rightful owners? Merlin thinks he know the answer to these questions. Jack and Annie, two modern kids who have lots of experience with history, mystery, and magic! With the help of Teddy, a young sorcerer (and an old friend from an earlier adventure), Jack and Annie take on their second Merlin mission in the magical realm of Camelot. Inspired by ancient legends and campfire ghost stories, Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve is a spooky and satisfying treat for readers all year round!"

Buying a bicycle for a child is a big deal. If you choose the right bike, you may quickly be elevated to "Coolest Parent/Grandparent/Other Adult Ever." On the other hand, if you choose the wrong one, you will probably find yourself on the unpopular list for quite some time. Aside from knowing their favorite colors and selecting baskets or bells, there are many factors to consider when choosing children's bicycles.
Purchasing the right soccer equipment is essential to a good game. While you can get started with just a goal and a soccer ball, some additional soccer equipment is a good idea. Buying clothing and shoes specifically made for soccer improves comfort, while safety gear prevents injuries.
The gridiron attracts sports fans of every age and zip code, and "American football" continues to grow in popularity all over the world. Football fans constantly brag about topping popularity polls among team sports. America's weekend addiction is also a great opportunity for sports and fitness, but it is important to remember that football is a contact sport; players get hurt, sometimes seriously. Modern football gear is designed using the best engineering and materials available, and when you use the right football helmets, football pads and other football equipment, you can reduce chances of injury.
Goooaaalll! You need correct soccer equipment if you love to hear that beautiful sound. As with any other sports equipment, the quality of soccer gear varies greatly from product to product. If you mainly get your soccer fix by playing in pick-up games here and there, there's no reason to splurge, but if you plan on playing competitively, you'll probably want to invest in some quality soccer gear. To help you save money on the right gear for your game, we've created this soccer equipment buying guide.
