The Little Lie

By: Sally Rippin

Billie B Brown series

Billie has been hunting dinosaurs with her best mate Jack but then she goes and breaks her arm. This isn’t so bad though because she now has the best Show and Tell story ever. There is a problem at the school the next day though, when Billie can’t stick to the truth, she thinks the story will be far more interesting if she adds a crocodile. This little lie has rather big consequences and things don’t end up the way Billie wants.

This is a nice little story about an independent young girl who is looking for a way to fit in better at school. Billie is feisty and fun and in this book learns a lesson about truth and making things up. This series is great for beginning readers just getting into chapter books. The print is large, the text simple and the story fun and easy to read. On top of that Billie is not a particularly girly girl and that makes her worth getting to know, especially for any parent over fairy books.

The Soccer Star

By: Sally Rippin

Part of the Billy B Brown Series

Billie and her best friend Jack always play together until one day when Jack is asked to play soccer with some of the other boys from their class. Billy says she will play but the boys say she can’t because she is a girl. Billy starts to feel all jumbled up, it doesn’t seem right. Billy decides to be brave and tell Jack how it felt when he went off, and she comes up with a plan and needs Jack’s help. Will this plan prove to the boys that girls can play soccer?

A wonderful little story about a determined little girl. It is a story that lets girls know that sometimes it’s okay to want to do things that others say you can’t, or to stand up for something you think is wrong. This book is a good alternative if you are looking for a book with a female character that isn’t a fairy, friends with a fairy or a dancer. With large print and pictures on about every second page it is a good early reader choice.
