This #SciFiJuniorHigh post is brought to you by JIMMY Patterson Books.
Books have come a long way from when I was a kid, and it really seems like now there are many more great options that appeal to middle-grade kids. My daughter is in third grade and isn’t always interested in reading, so when I come across a fun book that captures her attention, I take notice.
Recently, a number of books that she enjoys have come from publisher JIMMY Patterson Books, a project by author James Patterson that aims to put a book in the hands of every child. Their purpose is to publish compulsively readable books to inspire kids to want to keep reading, but also to provide resources and programs to empower teachers, parents, librarians, and booksellers to help get kids reading.
And it works, the books from JIMMY Patterson Books have been some of my daughter’s favorites, and she was super excited to check out the latest book, Sci-Fi Junior High by authors John Martin and Scott Seegert.
Here’s a picture of the authors. It’s nice to see the faces behind the names.
Sci-Fi Junior High
Sci-Fi Junior High is a book for kids ages 8+. It’s an out-of-this-world adventure about the new kid in the galaxy – and the new kid at school. It is filled with humor and the illustrations take the laughs to the next level.
Kelvin Klosmo isn’t just the new kid at school – he’s the new kid in the galaxy! Welcome to Sci-Fi Junior High: an inter-galactic space station with students of all shapes, sizes, smells, and… slime content. As the son of Earth’s two most famous geniuses, Kelvin isn’t just the smartest kid in the world….he’s the smartest kid in the UNIVERSE. At least, that’s what everybody at Sci-Fi Junior High thinks.
So, maybe Kelvin lied a little about being a genius to fit in. And maybe a mad scientist is about to take over the universe unless Kelvin can stop him. Maybe everyone is doomed.
Well, at least Kelvin won’t have to worry about math homework anymore.
Sci-Fi Junior High is an out-of-this-world story about friendship, accepting our differences, and the fight against evil… bunnies. Yes, evil bunnies – don’t ask.
My daughter really enjoyed the book and even asked if there was a second one in the series. It was especially appealing to her because she is fascinated with space.
As a parent, I love that this book inspired her to want to keep reading. Mission accomplished (pun intended).
Sci-Fi Junior HighYou can get your child a copy of Sci-Fi Junior High at Amazon.com. It’s currently $8.53 for the hardcover and will seriously be a book they read again and again. And if your child is like mine, you will pretty much read the whole book along with them because they are so excited about all of the fun illustrations.
You could even have them read it aloud to you, it’s pretty fun and I love hearing my reluctant reader reading out loud!
