The Locker Ate Lucy!: A Branches Book (Eerie Elementary #2) Reviews
I teach 5th grade and this book is definitely written for lower grade levels, but the series has been a major hit with many of my more reluctant readers. The books are fun and suspenseful without being too scary. They are also short which gives reluctant readers success in a shorter time.
I read this series to my second graders. It's just creepy enough to keep their interest, but not enough to scare them. They LOVE these books, they beg me for them. They have illustrations on every page, and I love how some pages are black with white writing instead of the usual of black writing on white pages. I really like the vocabulary used as well. There are around 13-15 chapters in them, but they are very short so it's perfect for the last 5-10 minutes of class. My students reenact the books at recess....too cute! LOVE LOVE these!!! The only thing is that, as of now, there are only 2 books that have the AR tests : (
My 8 year old loves this series. The way the second one ended made it sound like there would be more books written in the series. We're hoping so. My son also loves Notebook of Doom and Dragon Masters, series that are also published under Scholastic's Branches arm. As a parent, I've found the Branches books to be great for reluctant readers who may get overwhelmed by the thought of going from leveled readers with pictures on every page to reading chapter books with smaller type and visuals every few pages. The Eerie Elementary series is an engaging story that infuses just enough scariness/intrigue into the text, but not too much for my son's age that it would make him anxious. Vocabulary is right for the age group and the pictures support the text for kids who are still working on combining reading aloud with real-time story comprehension. My son's 20 minutes of reading homework for school each day goes much more smoothly when he's reading books he feels good about and that he wants to pick up again the following day because he wants to know what happens next. The end of Eerie Elementary #2 left both of us wanting to know what happens next. Please write more in this series Mr. Chabert.
My son just loves these books. I can see the excitement when he reads the books and the way his eyes get wide when a scary part comes up is fun to watch. The book has a lot of black and white pictures and my son always wants to see what they are doing.
My 5 year old loves these books. We read the first one and he loved it so much that I bought this one. He begs to read it every night. We usually read 2-3 chapters before bed and he always begs me to read one more chapter. I was able to find the 3rd book at the library so we will be starting that one next. I definitely recommend this book for school age kids.
My nine-year-old is a picky reader. But she loves Eerie Elementary, both books #1 and #2. We are really hoping this series takes off and adds another dozen adventures. It is an easy read with a little suspense. I found myself more than a little interested in the story. Highly recommended for 2nd and 3rd graders.
Perfect for my 1st grade boy who can read beginner chapter books. He probably could read it on his own, but we choose to alternate pages. The story moves quickly and he wants to know what happens next.
We were trying to find a happy medium for my 8yo daughter to read over the summer. She read it in one sitting. She loved it but you need to evaluate your child's reading level first. Have them read the sample page first. I should have.
