The Robot Blues

By: Sally Rippin

Hey Jack series bk 4

Jack has been invited to his friend Jem’s costume party. He has made a really awesome Robot from Outer Space costume but he is worried the other kids will think it’s lame. Also he doesn’t know anyone but Jem and can’t help thinking about what will happen if all the other kids have wonderful store bought costumes. Jack is feeling wobbly and nervous in his tummy and he’s not sure he even wants to go to the party any more.

This is a great little story about taking a chance even when it makes you nervous. Also how sometimes being a little different pays off. Both of these are good lessons to learn. The text is easy to understand and the story is honest fun and totally relatable. Rippin writes a good book for readers just beginning the path to chapter books.
