Marty McGuire
review 1: A book that is long enough for my 7 year old. I'm sick of her reading the books that are 68 pages and that she can finish in one sitting. This book is 162 pages and written ok. We liked the idea of a story about a compost pile since we have started one ourselves, but this book was a little too earth friendly for me if you know what I mean. I like saving the earth, but I don't want recycling shoved down my throat.
review 2: Kate Messner has a hit with third grader Marty McGuire because she's such a down-to-earth, not-afraid-to-get-dirty kind of girl (aka - a tomboy), that she's loved by girls and boys alike. In fact, I have a group of boys reading the first Marty McGuire book, and they are loving it.In this installment Marty and her classmates are being challen
... moreged to do something to help save the world. When her and Annie's first plan to try to make paper fails, they work with Marty's "cool grandma" to create a worm farm using scraps from school lunches to feed the worms. It's a project Marty is sure will be a hit, but one that, in the end, teaches her a lot about patience. less

This was perfect with our third grade class that did composting this fall.
I loved the original book in the series and this is another fun book.
I hope there is a 4th book! I love this series!
For kids not me :-)
