3 Amigo’s Book Blog

Welcome to 3AmigosBookBlog.com

… a blog dedicated to the reviewing of children’s books… for kids, by kids!

Since my children were babies, they have been surrounded by books and have spent many days at the library. Recently, after reading a book, one or all have mentioned wanting to let this person or that person know how good that particular book was. The kids mentioned starting a book club, which is in an idea in the works, but I thought it would be fun to have them give reviews of some of their favorites, in their own words!

I can’t tell you how many books we have picked up from the library that have been void of plot, boring, and so on, I would have loved some kid tested recommendations…who knows this might save you some time at the library!

To stay positive, we are only reviewing books that the kids are in favor of. Perhaps in the future the 3 Amigos can get more into actual critiquing of work, but for now this is fun and hopefully helpful to readers and the children in their life.

 

Meet the Amigos…

Update – the kids have gotten interested in video reviews, so we will be giving those a try as well!
