I'll admit that I'm a sucker when it comes to books about guinea pigs. Add in a contest, and it's a sure winner, right?The illustrations in this book are great. They are very rich, interesting drawings that are full of color. In fact, one of the few things I didn't like about the book was the words were on a rich blue background sometimes making it a bit hard to read, at least for me.It's a cute story of two brothers and their sister who use an old video camera to make a movie. After all, it's a [...]

A Reel Cool SummerAuthor: Martha RodriguezReviewed by Fran LewisThere is nothing as boring as a hot summer’s day with nothing to do but sit under a tree and complain about the heat. Sweltering, the air so still, the wind calm and the sun blazing hot making everyone tired, bored and looking for something else to pass the time of day Joey, Danny and Jacqui needed to do something else to keep cool. So, why wouldn’t they want to go shopping in with their mom to get out of the heat? Who wouldn’ [...]

We all have heard our kids complaining of hot and boring days during summer vacations. In this well written book, Martha helps kids find a way to see things in a different light. She shows how to do something about boredom without expecting others to entertain you so your day will be fun. The story is simple; three siblings are hot and bored one summer day. They finally decide to ask for a pool. Pools cost lots of money mother tells them. The oldest child finds a flyer that talks about a film co [...]

This summer I had the pleasure of reading ‘A Reel Cool Summer’ by Martha Rodriguez to my 8 year old son. In this book, summer is hot and boring. Joey is tired of reading and Danny and Jacqui’s vivid imagination aren’t enough to keep them occupied. What they really want is a place to cool off and have some fun and a swimming pool is just the thing, but can they convince Mom of this? Joey sees an opportunity to add some adventure to their afternoon and hopefully a first prize award, when h [...]

Bored on a hot summer day, Joey, his brother Danny and sister Jacqui want something to do. They want a pool, but mom says it cost a lot of money. Finding a flyer on the mail box for a movie competition with the reward of money is what gives Joey a great idea. Getting right to works on props, costumes and filming because they have only a few hours till the deadline. After a couple false starts, things seem to come together till the kids are happy with what they have done. Seeing some of the other [...]

I titled this review excellent because I used that word so many times while reading this book. I loved the reference that "we'll see, usually means no in Mom language." Danny wearing the eye patch and talking like a pirate was excellent, as was the illustration of Danny crossing his fingers as the 3rd place winner of the movie contest was announced. Yes, excellent is the perfect descrition of this book. The book has a great feel to it, excellent for read alongs. This is a great book for children [...]

Technology to the Rescue!What a perfect book for kids ages 6-9 to ward off boredom. First, A Reel Cool Summer is great fun to read, but to apply the technology idea the three siblings learned would be amazing.The dialogue is so accurate and the illustrations are outstanding. It isn’t hard to imagine this scene taking place in Martha Rodriguez’s home on a boring summer day, or any other family’s home on any given day. Kids are always saying they’re bored.Starting with the kids wanting a p [...]

GRRRR Matey!Both of my sons are grown, so I don't know a whole lot about what picture books and early readers talk about nowadays, but A Reel Cool Summer by Martha Rodriguez could not be more timely and is a must see for all families with pre-tween children. Those old enough to be inspired by the book to go out and make their own movie or play may benefit the most, but it's never too early to get any child thinking creatively.While listed at 32 pages, there's plenty going on, from the unique and [...]

A Reel Cool Summer is fun-filled tale about the exciting adventures that await you if you just use your imagination.It's summertime, it's HOT, and it's boringwhat are Joey, Danny, and Jacqui to do? Mom basically said no to the pool idea, so now what? Just when it seems boredom will be the theme this summer, Joey finds a flyer. All the kids have to do is make a movie, but the deadline is only a few hours away. Can they pull it off and come away with the big prize?I just love this story. As a mom [...]

This was a fantastic book. The attention to detail in each picture was amazing. I don't normally review that many children's books, but as a pre-k teacher and author, I really enjoyed this one. It takes us through the boredom of a summer day with 3 children Joey, Danny, and Jacqui as they turn it around by trying to win a movie contest. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys children's books.

If my grand daughter could type, I'm sure she would do it more proficiently then her "Grandpa Bill."She came home from school yesterday with nothing to read. I handed her the Kindle and off she went. Within in an hour she came boucing out of the house announcing to her mom and I, she was finished and really enjoyed the story. I think that is a good review in itself. The words of a seven year old more then outweigh an adult on this one. Well done Martha!

A 'reel' cute story about three kids who are hot and bored with summer. When a movie contest presents itself, they find they're not so bored anymore, as they keep busy making costumes, sets, props, etc. The whole family gets involved.What a fun project for a mother writer and illustrator son! Congratulations Martha!

A very cute and believable story about three siblings who enter a video contest for children, and earn an unexpected by well-deserved reward.The pacing and dialog are right on target! Rodriguez has obviously observed well how children communicate and react.This is a fun story to read for all ages, and best of all it probably would inspire other young people to do creative things.

Apart from the wonderful drawings, I found this story delightful. I loved the way it delved into the minds of children and made me remember not only my own childhood but those of my children. It made my smile wide.Certainly one to pass on to younger generations.

Cute storyline. I think this would interest many kids as a good summer reading book. You could even go one step further and have the kid read the book and then make there own movie.

This children's book, the paperback version, was a cute little book, with a nice little story about determination & trying to earn things for yourself for children. The drawings remind me of a "South Park" style, but they are actually for children. The story is about a few kids who want a particular item for play during their summer & end up entering a contest in an attempt to achieve their goal. The style of illustration was cute after I'd looked at & studied the illustrations. The [...]
