To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased a few of the Mallory series for a student who ordinarily expresses no interest in reading. She loves these books. I realize educators must adhere to the curriculum, but I do think children should be asked what they like to read, and if the subject matter is appropriate, their interests should be integrated into the curriculum.
My 5 year old and I read these together - and my 9 year old can't help listening in. The stories are so engaging and the kids are so realistic. This book shows once again the innocently selfish thought process of the elementary student brain. We are able to talk about Mallory's mistakes and feelings and laugh at the situations she gets herself into. Highly recommend
