Reviews of children's books

[AUG. 23, 2000]   Today's Book Look includes reviews of several books for children.

In "Bud, Not Buddy," Christopher Paul Curtis takes us back to 1936, during the Great Depression, and introduces us to Bud Caldwell. Bud may be "dirt poor" when it comes to money and possessions, but he’s rich in the areas of courage and humor.

 

In "F Is For Fabuloso," Jin-Ha is a junior high student in Minnesota, but even after two years in America she can’t help comparing the Korean and American customs. She still would rather eat the Korean dishes her mother prepares than pizza.

 

"Fish: Keeping and Breeding Them in Captivity" is a nine-volume set full of information on how to set up and maintain aquariums.
