Phineas L. MacGuire… Erupts! by Frances O’Roark Dowell

While it may be obvious that this story is trying to teach its readers some lessons, they are lessons every kid could stand to learn:
(1) Making new friends is tough, but it is not impossible.
(2) It’s hard to get a second chance after a bad first impression, but it’s still worth trying.
(3) Science can be fun!
I thought this book was a fun, quick read, even if it did not blow me away. Between the large type and the frequent illustrations, the pages just flew by. This would be a good book for budding scientists who don’t like to read long books.

Happy Reading!
