{My Thoughts} – In this book Roscoe Riley wants the newest fad he’s seen advertised on television. It’s a pair of shoes that are basically like walkie talkies. They can communicate with other peoples shoes if they have the same kind. Two of his classmates have some and he really wants some too so that he can be cool. His parents both told him no though. His friend Gus is dealing with a similar situation with his parents telling him no. Roscoe ends up getting some from his Great Aunt. And he tells Gus that he can borrow his shoes. However, Gus has a different size foot then Roscoe so Roscoe’s shoes are too small on him. He squishes his feet into them anyways and Roscoe borrows Gus’ boring shoes and tries to find out a way to ruin them so that Gus’ parents will need to buy Gus some new shoes.

Roscoe does manage to ruin Gus’ shoes and because of it they both end up in time out. It’s amazing the ideas that children can come up with as a means of trying to get what they want or trying to help their friends to get something they want. Children will never cease to amaze me in that aspect.

I highly recommend this book for any child that is having a difficult time engaging in the book world. It has a nice lesson about following the rules and it has humor, which makes for a nice read.

{My Thoughts} – Roscoe Riley is once again in timeout for his bad behavior. In this book his heart wasn’t in the right place though. He was jealous of another boys stuffed animal. Rosco’s went missing and he assumed the other boy took it. When he saw the other boy had a stuffed animal he took his. He figured it was only fair and that maybe the other boy would return his stuffed animal to him.

It is never okay to accuse someone of taking something of yours without proof. It is never okay to take something that doesn’t belong to you out of jealousy or spite.

In this book Roscoe learned that he acted too rash and that he didn’t have all the facts. He learned that it isn’t fair to treat others badly just because you feel bad. He learned that when you lose something important to you that it is likely you will eventually find it again I’m a place you least expect it to be.

I highly recommend this book for any child that is having a difficult time engaging in the book world. It has a nice lesson about following the rules and it has humor, which makes for a nice read.

{My Thoughts} – Roscoe Riley is rather good at getting into trouble for not behaving. In this book he pretends to have hurt himself because he was afraid to carry out a tap dance in the school talent show with his friend Emma. He enjoys tapping but not being made fun of by the other children that don’t think that boys should be able to tap dance or do any kind of dance. Eventually, he comes to his senses and does part of the dance with Emma. However, he ends up making a mess of things which in turn gets him into some trouble as well as lying and faking an injury did.

I highly recommend this book for any child that is having a difficult time engaging in the book world. It has a nice lesson about following the rules and it has humor, which makes for a nice read.

{My Thoughts} – Another tale from Roscoe Riley via the time out chair.

In this book his class went on a trip to an apple orchard. Roscoe really wanted to be a good boy on the trip. He’d borrowed his little sisters fortune telling ball so that he would know that it was suppose to be a good trip. The ball claimed he was going to have a great time. He was hoping the ball was right.

However, him and Wyatt end up doing some things that aren’t good and they both end up in trouble. The first thing they do is compete to see who can pick the biggest apple. The second is the end up jumping in the bin with the applesauce while it is being made. When Roscoe gets home he ends up in time out.

I highly recommend this book for any child that is having a difficult time engaging in the book world. It has a nice lesson about following the rules and it has humor, which makes for a nice read.
