AND BRIAN BIGGS
BY JON SCIESZKA
ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:Frank Einstein (kid-genius scientist and inventor) and his best friend Watson, along with Klink (a self-assembled artificial intelligence entity), create the BrainTurbo to power-boost the human body and help their baseball-pitching pal Janegoodall make the team. But when Klank (a mostly self-assembled and artificial almost intelligence entity) goes missing, they must first rescue their robot pal and stop T. Edison—Frank’s classmate and archrival—from stealing their latest invention and using it against them!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Thanks to Richard and the Penguin Random House Audio Books, I was excited to receive Jon Scieszka's audio book, FRANK EINSTEIN AND THE BRAIN TURBO. My 5-year-old grandson was here when it arrived and he was also excited but I told him he had to wait just a bit for this one. Although he is entering kindergarten this week, he is a pretty good reader so a good book always appeals to him. Seeing the robot also made it special. I can't wait to get to it sometime next week. With children going back to school around the country it is time for parents to be thinking about what their child is reading. As a veteran teacher, one of my assignments to my students the first week was a book report. Before they freaked out totally, I told them it had to be a book they were starting or currently reading and the "report" was to design a book cover for the story. They loved that. My first math lesson when I was teaching 4th-6th grades was to read Jon Scieszka's MATH CURSE. My students were surprised for me to be reading a "picture" book to them in math but once they heard it, they understood why. It is a wonderful book and the correlation of math and reading is a super lesson for children. All this to say, I highly respect Jon Scieszka's work and am sure I will love this new book as well. I do hope you will give his work a try for your children...and for yourself!
