What I Loved:
Mighty Coconuts is a book about conserving energy and the environment and is targeted at middle-grade readers. I love the message this book is giving to young readers and the future of our world. The way the book is written, gives a lot of information about these topics, but it is done with these missions and time travel. It made it fun to read.
How I Felt:
I was so intrigued by the ideas in this book! There is new, plant technology and it is truly amazing. The thought that went into these fun devices was very detailed. The book even included drawings of these so that we could envision them. There are apps for the kids to use, there’s time travel, and a shrinking device. It all makes for a perfect book for young readers today.
The missions that the children are sent on are really cute, and a bit interactive for the reader sometimes. These were fun for me, and would be enjoyed by a child reading as well.
There are links at the end of the chapters and I appreciated the extra information given through these! I think I would have preferred that the information be collected at the end of the book so that it was easier to reference later, but I loved having a guide for more information.
To Read or Not To Read:
This is a chapter book with short, easy to read chapters. I think this is good for a 3rd grade and up reader.
