Jana’s Summer Book Review: Give That Back Jack

Posted By Jana On August 8, 2013 @ 9:13 am In Amazon | Comments Disabled

As a middle school English teacher and now a librarian I have read a lot of books. A LOT OF BOOKS! From easy readers, young adult, adult, and non-fiction; you name it I have read it. With so many good classics and new books coming out daily I have learned to become quite critical of what I read. For me a good book has good character development, plot, and whether or not it hooks me in within the first couple of chapters.

This summer I have a long list of books to read and plan to share only what I would consider to be the “must reads” with you.

The second book I would like to share with you is a children’s book that I was given recently for my kids called Give That Back, Jack!: A Cautionary Tale (Cautionary Tales) [1]
written by Phil Cox and illustrated by Jan McCafferty.

Written for ages 4 and up it is a cautionary tale about a little boy named Jack who thinks everything from pencils, toys, and animals should belong to him so he takes them. In the end he learns his lesson in a rather amusing way.

Give That Back, Jack [1]is part of a series of cautionary tales all of which try and teach young children the difference between right and wrong in a short rhythmic story with fun cheerful drawings.

I consider this book a summer hit because my kids are constantly asking me to read it to them and I never tire of it either! They can now be a part of the story by reciting some of the repetitive lines with me which they love as well.

I can not wait to check out some of the other books in the series. I am sure my kids will be just as excited as I am to read them.
