Reading with Scholastic 1: The Mysterious World of Cosentino #3 The Lost Treasure, The Magic School Bus: Amazing Magnetism, Hero Dog

[Sponsored Review]

Our children love reading. Can you imagine that they can finish reading a few chapter books in one day? To share the joy of reading with you and your children, we are starting a series of book reviews. In each post, we will share with you the Scholastic books that our children are currently reading. 


The Mysterious World of Cosentino #3: The Lost Treasure

"Mum, look at this magic trick that Cosentino did!" my children eagerly showed me a page of The Mysterious World of Cosentino #3 The Lost Treasure. Now then I know how some of the magic tricks work!




Synopsis:
Cosentino, the Grand Illusionist, is in danger! He’s trapped in a glass ball hanging over the ocean, where dangerous beasts lurk. He’ll have to undo shackles, a straightjacket, and padlocks to escape! The audience watching him from the pier is terrified, but not as much as when the evil two-headed King arrives on a mission to find his lost sunken treasure. Cos must stop the King from taking the treasure, but first he must avoid arrest AND escape from the glass ball... while underwater! But how long can he hold his breath? Can Cos pull off his greatest illusion ever?

The Magic School Bus: Amazing Magnetism

To encourage our children to enjoy the learning of science, we do hands-on experiments, visit Science Centre,  and read books like The Magic School Bus: Amazing Magnetism.

Currently, the children are learning about magnetism in school, so this book helps them to have a better understanding in the concepts.





Synopsis:
Hi, I'm Carlos - one of the kids in Ms. Frizzle's class. I know Ms. Frizzle thinks of some weird ways to teach about science, but challenging Mr. O'Neatly's class to a science contest was her craziest idea to date. Mr. O'Neatly's class always wins everything!The contest topic was magnetism, and we hadn't even started our unit yet. The Friz said she thought we'd have a natural attraction to the topic, but nothing could have prepared us for what happened next. Wait til' you hear about this!

Hero Dog

Real-life super-sleuth and media sensation Hilde Lysiak's reporting skills are put to the test in this fun early chapter book mystery series! Our children are amazed that the author wrote this book at such a young age!




Nine-year-old crime reporter Hilde Lysiak is starring in her very own early chapter book series - inspired by news stories Hilde wrote in real life! In this first book, there's been a break-in on Orange Street! Cupcakes have been stolen, and soon a pie goes missing, too. Hilde and her sister/photographer, Izzy, must interview witnesses and follow the clues. Can Hilde crack the case in time to post her news story online? Joanne Lew-Vriethoff's personality-filled illustrations appear on every page, bringing Hilde's adventures to life for young readers!

Author: Hilde Lysiak and Matthew Lysiak
