uh-oh Cleo I Barfed on Mrs. Kenly by Mikayla Lloyd on Prezi
What these reviewers seem to forget is that books like these are meant to appeal to kids who are very young and just learning to read and transitioning from picture books that were read to them to early chapter books. I like this book because there were only 6 chapters and the chapters were short ideal for younger children with shorter attention spans.
Also the story was very relatable, which bolsters comprehension. The I disagree with previous reviewers who said this book lacked substance. The group I read this to loved it and we had some great conversations about what happened in the story. Jul 07, Steph rated it liked it. Very cute option when trying to find a simple chapter book for growing readers.
This would truly make a struggling reader feel successful because it is a chapter book, but it's simple enough and has enough pictures that lots of young or reluctant readers could handle it. There's not much to the story, but I adore her large family and charming quirks. Fun to see that the author is from a nearby town and she comes from a big family and has a history of stitches, too!
Jun 19, Kristen rated it really liked it Shelves: chapter-books , gentle-reads. This is a sweet, gentle story for early chapter book readers that's short and frequently illustrated - no spread is without at least one illustration. The writing is clever and sticks to accessible vocabulary, and Cleo's emotions and internal life is spot-on for an 8-year-old.

Great new easy chapter book series for girls. Mar 03, Melissa rated it it was ok Shelves: j-fiction , read With these skinny Js it's hard for me to tell whether they're okay or not because there's not much story there! I will skim through it again with a more critical eye. Anybody have any skinny-book evaluative criteria to share?
Oct 02, Jill rated it liked it Shelves: children-s-librarian. A decent beginning reader book. I like that it is one cohesive story throughout.
Cleo tells the story of "Stiches Saturday" in this three chapter book. Kids will feel that they've accomplished something as they read through chapters. Jack decided to Spider-Man up the toy shelf and made the whole thing tip over. And one of the things that flew off hit Cleo in the head, making her bleed and everything.
