I woke up sick and cannot write a review as I like to write them. Too much phlegm.
That might have been too much to say. Sorry.
Reviews will pick up tomorrow with,
Woody’s World by E. Renee Heiss / illustrations by Chelsea Sekanic.
In 1929, twelve year-old Woody thinks little about money. Then the stock market crashes, crumbling his father’s business with it. Suddenly, money becomes very important to Woody, so he searches for ways to help his family. Sometimes his efforts earn him a few coins. At other times, his efforts remove letters from an imaginary chocolate “RESPECT” bar, that his father uses to keep track of Woody’s mistakes.
In the end, Woody learns about hard work, true friendship, and earning respect. But, will his efforts ever be enough to earn the respect of his father?
