It’s Monday – here are some books you might enjoy

Pressure Point is the second book that I’ve read from the Game Face series. I highly recommend it. There’s a lot of pressure when you’re one of only four 7th graders who’s made the team and even more when you’re in the starting team. You have to stay cool.  You have to play smart.  You have to … Torry feels pressure to play well. He wants to keep his spot as a starter so he gives his all, all the time. What if that’s not good enough?  Read Pressure Point to find out how Torry works to play hard and be a great teammate.

Birdie is a crafter. She loves making things with her hands. She loves the idea that ordinary things can become extraordinary creations with a little thought, effort and time. Making things transforms Birdie. She becomes more than a girl – she is Crafty Cat. But when Birdie gets to Monster Craft Camp and discovers the janitor and the librarian are leading it rather than a Crafty King, AND, that Anya is there, she’s not sure what will happen. Birdie has to find a way to make the best of each challenge as she crafts her way through her day. It’s a good thing she has Evan and Cloudy. They help her cope with difficulties and disappointments.  This is a great story friendship and understanding.

On top of that, the directions for all the cool monster crafts are at the end of the book.
