If I Never Forever Endeavorđánh giá by Hayden, age 4, Southeast Michigan Mensa


This book was about a bird who didn"t yet know how to lớn fly.

The bird has to lớn decide if it will try to lớn fly, but it was not sure if it wants lớn. The bird thought, "If I never forever endeavor" then I won"t ever learn. On one wing, he worries he might fail and on the other wing he thinks of how he may succeed. He worries that if he tries, he may get lost in the world. That makes hyên want to stay in his nest where he"s safe.

I think this book would help other children to lớn learn that trying new things can be scary, but sometimes when we try, we can find things that make us happy too. And this book will help others know that mistakes are okay & part of learning.

My favorite part is that the bird tried and learned that she could fly. I also liked that I read this book because it gave me a chance to lớn talk lớn mom about making mistakes và how I don"t lượt thích making them. Then I learned they are good & part of learning.

Boys và girls who are 3 to lớn 8 years old would like this book because it teaches about trying a new thing và how it"s important to get past being scared so you can learn new things.

I give the book 5 stars since I think it"s important for other children lớn learn about courage.

Flesh và Blood So CheapĐánh Giá by Umar B., age 8, Central New Jersy Mensa


I liked this book. People who are interested in national disasters và US history as well as immigration will most probably be interested in reading this book.

Readers can gain knowledge of what it was lượt thích to lớn work in Thủ đô New York City in the early 1900s. One of the things that was especially interesting was that there were no safety laws at work. Also, there was a big contrast between the rich & the poor. Some people may not lượt thích this book because it is very depressing, but it is an important event in history to remember.

This book was very well written. It has blaông xã & Trắng photos along with descriptions of the photos. These photos give us a better idea of what people"s lives were lượt thích. This book is suitable for 9-đôi mươi year olds.

I give this book 5 stars.

Galaxy Zach: Journey to JunoĐánh Giá by Young Mensan Connor C., age 6, Boston Mensa


Journey To Juno is the second book of the Galaxy Zachồng series. It is just as good as the first one. It"s awesome!

Zachồng joins the Sprockets Academy Explorers Club at school. They fly on a special trip lớn Juno, a new planet no one has ever visited. Zachồng gets paired up with Seth, the class bully, and that"s dreadful but Zack is excited when he finds a huge galaxy gemmite. A gemmite that large had not been found in 100 years! Kids will love this book!

Boys và girls will both like it. It"s an easy chapter book with pictures on every page. I love the illustrations. I think ages 6-8 would like this but younger kids would lượt thích the story being read to lớn them.

My favorite parts are the galactic blast game (it is similar lớn baseball except there are robots playing), recess at Zack"s school where everything is 3-D holographic images, the rainbow river in a crystal cave on Juno, và the galaxy gemmite that Zaông chồng finds on Juno. I also loved when a life-kích cỡ holographic image of his Earth friover appears in Zack"s room because he calls hlặng on a hyperphone. I give this book one hundred stars! There is a "khổng lồ be continued" at the over so you have lớn read the next book see what"s in store. I can"t wait to find out what happens!!!

I Capture the Castlereview by Lauren W., age 17, Mensa in Georgia


Dodie Smith"s novel I Capture the Castle is a journey through the mind of a young writer as she attempts lớn chronicle her daily life. Seventeen-year-old Cassandra Stavrou Mortmain has recently learned to lớn speed-write, & she decides lớn work on her writing skills by describing the actions và conversations of those around her.

Cassandra Stavrou lives in a fourteenth-century English castle with an interesting cast of characters: her beautiful older sister, Rose; her rather unsociable author father & his second wife, artist-mã sản phẩm Topaz; Stephen, the garden boy; a cát và a bull terrier; and sometimes her brother Thomas when he is home from school. One fateful day they make the acquaintance of the Cotton family, including the two sons, & a website of tangled relationships ensues.

While I definitely recommend this book to other readers, I would recommend it khổng lồ older teenagers, mainly because it will resonate better with them. The writing is tame enough that younger teens could also read it, but most of the characters are adults or on the verge of adulthood. Older readers would take the most from it since they can not only relate, but they may also better pick up on và appreciate Cassandra"s sometimes subtle humor.

Over the course of the novel, Cassandra undergoes a definite transformation from child to mature young adult, even though it"s only over the course of several months. I love sầu that I could see into lớn her mindset và read exactly what she was feeling when she thought out situations. Her thoughts flowed well and moved the book along very quickly.

Cassandra"s narrative voice is wonderful. She is serious at times, but also very witty, which makes for an engaging read. It feels absolutely real, as though I"m reading someone"s actual journal. Sometimes I forget that I am reading a story & not a real-life tài khoản. Her emotions and the dialogue are so genuine, và they are spot-on for a seventeen-year-old girl in her situation.

Stavrou has many wonderful insights on life, on topics ranging from writing to faith khổng lồ matters of the heart. I personally have sầu had some of the same thoughts as Cassandra Stavrou, except Ms. Smith was able lớn put them inlớn words.

Capture the Castle should be essential reading for aspiring writers, those looking for historical fiction or romance, or anyone who loves reading amazing classic books. Dodie Smith is an exceptional writer, và I Capture the Castle is a book that will never become obsolete.

I appreciated Frankenstein"s Cat for its fascinating explanation about the often baffling subject of bioengineering & its sister sciences. Emily Anthes explains the many sides of today"s modern công nghệ, such as gen modification, cloning, pharmaceutical products (from the farm), prosthesis, animal tag và tracking và ren cryogenics.

About Marsupialsnhận xét by Connor C., age 6, Boston Mensa


About Marsupials is the title so the book is about...marsupials, of course. It"s non-fiction. I really think everyone would like the book. I think someone who likes animals would especially like khổng lồ read it.

The glossary of facts in the baông chồng of About Marsupials is the most useful part. I thought the most interesting parts were that some marsupials have their pouch at their back legs & one marsupial, the Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby, is very small but can jump 13 feet wide!

Kids in the 4-8 age range would lượt thích this book. Even though it"s not a story book, 4 year olds would like the few words on each page & they would love sầu the beautiful pictures. But older kids would lượt thích it because of all the facts in the bachồng of the book. There"s a lot of information for each animal. I think boys & girls (& parents) would enjoy reading it. This book is very interesting. I give it 4 stars.

Mapping the Worldnhận xét by Umar A., age 10, Central New Jersey Mensa


Every day, people around the world use maps. Whether it is an airplane pilot or businessman, housewife or museum group, maps have sầu always and will continue khổng lồ provide useful information for all.

Mapping the World talks about the uses of maps, as well as how khổng lồ differentiate between the type of maps projection & type of bản đồ.

An uncolored projection could be used in many ways. We could use it for population concentration, highways, lvà elevation, & so many other things!

For example, we could make a topographic map of the U.S., which shows lvà elevation. We could make it a colorful map that shows the amount of pollution in different areas, or it could be a population bản đồ, or it could even be a map that shows the 50 states, their capitals và borders! Our last step in this amazing excursion is the near future, where we see some hypothetical solutions as to what maps will be used for. Currently, we are working on better virtual bản đồ công nghệ.

Now, scientists have been able lớn put maps on phones. Back in the early 1900s, people had to lớn lug a lot of maps around khổng lồ find your way from place lớn place, or just keep asking for directions. Now, all the information is on a phone or global positioning system (GPS). It is amazing how much maps have changed technology and the world in this century.

The Mapping the World 8-book mix goes into amazing levels of detail. It is a long read, but it gives an immense range & amount of information that you would not find in any other book or series on maps. The flowing way the chapters and books are organized makes it easy lớn liên kết passages from different books in this series together. Mapping the World is a treasure box, filled with the seeds of cartography. Collect và plant them, and you soon will have sầu the fruits of cartography, beneficial to lớn those who want to lớn be cartographers. Use this series khổng lồ the utmost, then the fruits of mapping will be sweet for all who endeavor to succeed in cartography.
