Eva Wingdale gets in over her head when she offers to organize a spring festival at school. Even with her best friend Lucy’s help, there is NO way she will get everything done in time. Will Eva have to ask Sue (a.k.a. Meanie McMeanerson) for help? Or will the festival have to be cancelled? This book is written as Eva’s diary — with Rebecca Elliott’s owl-dorable full-color illustrations throughout!

Not recommended for early or struggling readers The Good:Attractive, bright illustrationsShort ChaptersInteresting StoryThe Bad:Invented words, for example “winglish”This is not a good book for early readers, or children that are struggling to read, the story is cute, but the invented words will only confuse a child that is already having difficulty with reading.I looked at the book from the viewpoint of a parent with a child with learning disabilities, but some of the same points will also apply to children that are just learning how to read, The targeted age for this book is set too low, as I believe many children in Kindergarten will not be ready for a book that is this complicated.I think a good age group would be 8 to 9 year olds, as it it does mention “mean” girls, and that is a concept that is probably going to be slightly too mature for a Kindergartener.Recommended for ages 8-9, and not for early or struggling readers

Eva, the Enthusiastic Owl This is the first of a projected series (the next title is Eva Sees a Ghost, coming in June) in the “Branches” book line– meant for kids who are “branching out” into chapter books. They’re fast and simple reads, and this one suggests ages 5-7.¬†

Perfect Introduction To Chapter Books and The Story Has a Fantastic Moral! My 5 year old nieces really enjoyed this book although they can’t read it independently yet. It’s intended for children in Kindergarten – Second Grade and the age range is very accurate because children older than second grade might find this book too easy and babyish. This is a wonderful transition from picture books to chapter books without being so much text that it’s overwhelming to the child and still including pictures on each page. The book is 72 pages and contains 11 chapters ranging from 4-11 pages each. There aren’t too many words per page and it holds the child’s attention.¬†
