Review: Eerie Elementary #1: The School Is Alive!
Eerie Elementary #1: The School Is Alive! by Jack Chabert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Eerie Elementary is one scary school!
This series is part of Scholastic's early chapter book line called Branches, which is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!
In this first book in the series, Sam Graves discovers that his elementary school is ALIVE! Sam finds this out on his first day as the school hall monitor. Sam must defend himself and his fellow students against the evil school! Is Sam up to the challenge? He'll find out soon enough: the class play is just around the corner. Sam teams up with friends Lucy and Antonio to stop this scary school before it's too late!
What a wonderful book for independent readers in elementary school. Full of non stop action and plenty of illustrations to help carry the story along smoothly. A living school that a student and his friends have to keep at bay from the other students is a great idea. I look forward to the up coming stories. Children love action and imagination especially when they can imagine they are the hero. Reading on your own is a wonderful confidence builder itself and when it is fun and exciting, the love for reading grows inside the young mind.
I was given this book for review purposes and I have nothing but great thoughts about the book. I look forward to seeing it on book shelves as my son & I search for titles he likes. I know Scholastic's series and independent reading books are very popular with my son his 3rd grade friends.
