Four Moms and a Girl Review Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story, for ages 6-10

Four Moms and a Girl Review Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story



Here you can read reviews of Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story
(a chapter book for ages 6-10) written by some wonderful mom bloggers and one great girl. 
See what moms are thinking about this new chapter book series by
children's book author Linda Thieman!

[Reading Level 3, 280L, for ages 6-10]

1) Rave & Review   (Leanne's review of Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story)
     “Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story
takes you to traditionally spooky locations and situations but does so
in a lighthearted way that is anything but scary even for young
readers…. I really like[d] that the book was about something very
different than I had seen before and the opportunities were huge to
engage in good discussions with your kids … about the topics brought
up in the book.”


2)
She Scribes  (Kimberly's review of Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story)
    
“This is not really a “Ghost” story, per se, but more so a story about
friendship and having that special bond with someone. It has a lot of
funny parts in it, too.”

3) Mom's Most Wanted  (Stefanie's review of Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story)
     “I was fortunate enough to receive Linda Thieman’s book, Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story.
My son was home when it arrived. He is 7 years old and an avid reader.
As soon as he got it in his hands, he sat down on the couch and didn’t
stop reading it until he was finished. He absolutely loved the book. I
thought that since he had read it and loved it so much, I had to read
it…. The book is extremely well-written and is easy to follow for a
child, as well as an adult. I think I loved the book as much as my son
did!… I feel it should be a must-read for every school.”

4) Pink & Posh  (Jeri's review of Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story)
     “Throughout this story as well as its sequel, Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish,
the girls work together to solve puzzles and mysteries that kept my
daughter and even myself ready to find out the endings.  But, don’t let
the “ghost” titles fool you.  These books are light-hearted and fun and
are not at all based on fear. We had a blast reading this series
together….  My daughter is 6, and may be a little younger than most
Katie & Kimble fans, but she is super excited to see if there will
be a third story in this wonderful set of books for young mystery
lovers.”

[From Linda: Yes, there will be. Book 3 is called Katie & Kimble: The Golden Door and it will be available in 2011, I hope.]

5) Katrina, 8, Reviews Katie & Kimble: A Ghost Story for ages 6-10
     “Katie & Kimble is a very honest book with a lot of friendship and truth.”

3 Moms and a Girl Review Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish! (For ages 7-10)

3 Moms and a Girl Review Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish!



In
Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish, Book 2 in the Katie & Kimble
series (290L),
the
author takes Katie & Kimble where no ghostly tale has gone before.
It's time for Kimble to make herself at home with Katie's family!
Nine-year-old Katie, and Kimble, the ghost of a ten-year-old girl, find
a coupon for a magic wish in a box of breakfast cereal. Their wish
leads to all manner of hilarious difficulties, including how to tell
Katie's dad about Katie's new friend, Kimble, who suddenly appears out
of nowhere looking very much like an old-fashioned girl. Can the lonely
Kimble find love and acceptance within a human family?

Homeschool Messenger (Susieqtpie's review of Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish)
     “BOOK
2 kept my daughter's inquisitive attention from the get go! It started
with a mysterious coupon found in a cereal box stating that it is 'good
for one wish.' I always LOVED getting the goodie in the cereal box as a
kid!… What is it that they wish for and how will it forever change
the girls' lives as well as Katie's family's life? You'll have to read
the book to find out!!!”
@susieqtpies

Café of Dreams  (April's review of Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish)
     “Readers
(and parents) looking for a wholesome and rewarding story will be
incredibly satisfied with Katie & Kimble – through both A Ghost
Story and The Magic Wish. This is an amazing and timeless series that I
can see being read by generations to come.”
@cafeofdreams


The Book Connection  (Cheryl's review of Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish)
     “One
of the best aspects of this book is the complete acceptance of Kimble
into the Russell family from Katie's parents, her two-year-old brother,
Toby–who has always been able to see Kibo (as he calls her)–and even
the family's dog, Twinkle.”
@ccmalandrinos

Madeline, age 8, Reviews Katie & Kimble: The Magic Wish for Reader Views Kids!
      Katie and Kimble: The Magic Wish
by Linda Thieman is the second book in this series about Katie and
Kimble I have read. They are fun and easy for the reader to follow. I
really like these books about friends because they always have a happy
ending and make me feel good. I liked both books equally well.”
