Girls in grades 3 to 5 will enjoy reading about how Piper adjusts and learns to love her new home.
Unlike her older sister, Piper loves being part of a Navy family, and unlike her younger sister, Piper is no prodigy genius. Piper is Piper - fearless and full of life!
Piper reed navy brat is a great book to read. It has twelve short chapters in it.
I like this book because at all the ends of the chapters it always makes you want to read on. It also has different surprises in the book but you are going to have to read it to see what the surprises are.
Piper is a little girl who has dad is in the Navy. They lived right by the base of San Diego, California. Her life was perfect until their family had to move to Pensacola, Florida and her dad had to go help.
Pros: The author could have put more detail into the pictures, exciting, they get a surprise but its not that big of a surprise.
Cons: illustrations could have had more detail
Despite the fact that Amazon says the recommended age range for this book is 9 to 12, I decided to read it to my own military brats. At first I thought my 4-year-old daughter wouldn't understand it and that my 7-year-old son would lose interest because the main character is a girl. But my concerns were quickly dismissed when they started chanting every night at bedtime, "Piper, Piper, Piper!"
While I think my daughter liked the book because it was about a girl with a firecracker personality like herself, I don't think she fully comprehended the military brat connection. That's not surprising considering that she doesn't remember living anywhere but where we are now. But my son definitely appreciated the parallels between Piper and himself, and he enjoyed hearing about situations he'd been through before. His ears perked up when Piper and her family got to their new house and had to have a picnic on the floor because their furniture hadn't arrived yet and when Piper wanted to spend time alone with her father before he deployed. He was able to relate to Piper and aspects of her lifestyle that most kids don't understand.Read more ›
The setting of the book takes place in both Texas and Florida. Piper moves everywhere because her dad is in the Navy. These places tell a lot about Pipers life style in the book. The plot of the story is, Piper moves everywhere, and she loved the friends she had in Texas. The conflict is that her family is now moving to Florida, she has to make new friends, a different house in a different city. This sounds a lot like me, except my dad is not in the Navy.
My opinion about this book is, it is a wonderful book to read for any kind of reason or spare time. It is a very fun book to read for slow readers. I see why they made this a sunshine reader book this year. I want you to read this book today. If you have a mom or dad in the navy you will love this book,
