Ava and Taco Cat is a really good book. It is the sequel to Ava and Pip. There are some funny parts and some serious parts. It is about a girl and her sister, one of the girls’ birthdays is coming up and she really wants a cat but her parents don’t. So she and her sister try to do everything they can to get the cat. It is super impressive how many palindromes the author can come up with (if you have’nt noticed T-A-C-O-C-A-T)! I would recommend you read the books in order though. The first book is called Ava and Pip.
Book 1 for grades:3rd-5th
Book 2 for grades:4th-6th
Ava and Pip and Ava and Taco Cat are both entertaining and clever as well as thought-provoking for this age group, focusing on topics such as social anxiety, dealing with friends, negotiating with parents and being a sister.
