Hey everybody! It’s Krista here with another great book! Today I’m reviewing Gianna the Great by Becky Villareal. It is a short chapter book about a curious little girl with lots of attitude. Below you’ll find more info on the book, author, and a new rafflecopter opportunity!
About the Book
Gianna just wants to know about her ancestors, but she has to join an after school history club (yuck!) to do it. Now, she’s about to embark on a journey that will change everything she thinks she knows about her family.
My step daughter, a fifth grader, generally hates reading. Recently she’s found a few books that she really enjoyed reading for school. Gianna the Great falls right into the category she’s newly begun to love. The book is about a little girl who wants to know anything and everything- and lets us know with her very fiery narrative. I loved reading the book and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good book for their child.
The main character in Gianna the Great is part of a single-parent family who’s mother moved from Mexico at a young age, so the book will introduce the reader to a small amount of Spanish words. It’s a great beginning to learning Spanish, and comes in the form of a wonderful book to read.
Overall, I’d give Gianna the Great five stars. Every character in the book was well- developed and fun to get to know. The book itself was hard to put down and it was suddenly over before I knew it and I was left wanting more. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.
