There is nothing like soccer and science fairs to capture the older readers attention. My son is in 3rd grade and he doesn’t hate reading but it is hard to get him to read unless the story really captivates him. He also likes to switch books before he completes one so as per his teacher and my concerns of that he is to finish a book before moving on. This makes it especially important that the topic interests him. He plays soccer and his favorite subject is science so he was sold just by the cover on these titles.
The table of contents below is for Science No Fair. Logan has wanted a companion and his inventor Mom has built a robot cousin for him, named Java. It is important that Logan try and help Java act as normal as possible so no one can tell he is a robot. At the same time Logan has a science fair coming up and he will have the brains of Java. But can Logan hang onto Java as his partner or will his project become an epic fail?
The next set of table of contents below is for Soccer Shocker. If your child plays soccer, you may have heard all about the ball hoarder! Java joins Logan’s team but he is good and knows it. Logan used to be the start player and not only does Java have talent, but he is THAT ball hoarder player. But when Java gets wet and goes on the fritz, can the whole team—even a short-circuiting Java—come together to score the winning goal?
If you have trouble getting your child to become engaged in chapter books, the Project Droid series is very engaging and witty with its words as well. You can find these books at Amazon, indies and Barnes&Noble
