Nathan Rockledge, aka Nate Rocks, is a highly imaginative 10 year old 4th grader. Nate is not an athlete, in fact he dislikes team sports. He has an older sister (13 years old) who is the bane of his existance. He escapes reality by drawing and daydreaming about being a hero. Nates imagination has him winning the World Series, helping Captain Asteroid save the planet (with prisms from his science project) and save a woman tied to train tracks (spurs can be very useful).
I think this is a wonderful book. The reading level is listed as ages 9-12, this book is perfect for that age group. As the mother of a 10 year old, it can be difficult finding books that capture his attention. Nate Rocks! is such a book. He read it in a day. I knew it was a winner when I heard laughter throughout his reading. When finished, he looked up and said "Is there a second book?"
Ms Toz was able to easily capture the mind and imagination of a 10 year old boy, both Nate and my son. I look forward to more of her books.
The family scenes are priceless, one after another. Mom's cooking is to be avoided at all costs; when Nate snags an invitation to dinner at his friend Tommy's, it's like a miracle. And her lousy cooking is only trumped by her sewing, since his Mom always insists on sewing his Halloween costume. And instead of store-bought Valentine's Day cards Mom insists in pasting cards together using construction paper and heart-shaped doilies, and Nate has to write something on every one ... the drudgeries of life!
When Nate gets paired with his classmate Lisa Crane to work on a science project, his worst fears are realized. Not only will he have to work with the dreaded Lisa, who tells her mother EVERYTHING, and then Lisa's mother of course tells Nate's mother everything, too. Not only that, but he will have to sacrifice two Saturdays in a row to sit at the dining room table with bossy Lisa and work on the prism project. All this when he had planned to go and see the new Captain Asteroid movie with Tommy. Working with Lisa provides the perfect excuse to escape into a daydream featuring Captain Asteroid aided by none other than Nate Rocks, saving the world. What then transpires in the classroom when it's time for Nate and Lisa to give their presentation is hysterically funny on the one hand, but will make you groan with frustration on the other, because it all seems so real.Read more ›
Nate is a normal 10-yearold. He has all the problems which every kid that age faces. He does not like sports and is always picked last for everything. His sister, Abby takes pleasure in torturing him at every opportunity. He tries to run away from his mother's horrible cooking, but rarely succeeds. His mother insists on making his Halloween costumes even though she can't sew. His dad is quite cool, but he keeps reminiscing about his childhood and boring the kids with oft-repeated stories. And finally, there is the bane of his life, his classmate Lisa Crane who he just can't stand.
So what does he do to escape from all these problems? Nate has a passion for drawing and gets lost in the world he creates and draws as cartoons. In fact he keeps getting into trouble as this results in him daydreaming in school, at home, with friends and even while playing games.Read more ›
