Dewey Fairchild Series, New Review 11/2019

It’s Monday – Sixth Grade Serious & Silly

Visit Jen at nleashingReaders and Teach Mentor Texts to see what they’ve been reading, along with others who post their favorites. I’m sharing two posts today, this one dedicated to what has become a series, newly adding book three. I reviewed the first Dewey Fairchild book a couple of years ago here.

“The problems are real and Dewey’s solutions were considerate and actually focused on helping the teacher, resulting in good solutions for everyone.”

“Descriptions of the characters show the author wants to be sure that readers know diverse kids and adults are in Dewey’s life.”

“. . . a feel-good vibe to all the stories”

“There is a lot to love in these books that will entertain, but also inform thinking for readers.”
