Editorial Reviews


4 and a half starsfrom Amazon Readers

From GoodReads.com:
“I read this with my four-year old son and he really enjoyed it. He loves superheroes, so that element was fun for him. This series is the perfect transition from picture books to chapter books, because there are full color pictures on every page and few enough lines per page to keep their attention. I love that Scholastic created this "Branches" line of books which are great for early readers.” – Stephanie, GoodReads.com

Hamilton Book of the Week seeks to move Hamilton County Schools closer to district goals found in the Future Ready 2023 action plan. We hope to encourage kids to read more books for fun by sharing books popular at area schools.

Goals more students reading will address include:

  •  Reading improvement will increase the number of students on-track or mastering English language arts
  • Improve the district ACT score to a district average of 21
  •  Reach the target goal of a 90 percent graduation rate by 2023
