Check out review #3 for The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley!

The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley book review

 The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley written by Lance Justin Peter Okones, illustrated by Christopher Trefz is a nice children's book.  My kiddos at work liked the book too!  I read The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley to 15 of my friends during homework time.  My friends had some good in sites on the book: "It would be neat if a Realoscope was real!", "Lisa is brave.", "The characters clothes look real and Brian's sweater looks like you can touch it.", "I know what moon dust is like now."

 The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley has a good balance of facts and fiction.  I enjoyed being able to share a book that was very age appropriate, with no worries of words that I was uncomfortable sharing with the children in my program.  I also liked that the main character were a boy and girl (it is good for children to see that boys and girls can just be friends-there tends to be teasing that they must "like" each other), I also like that there was a multicultural character and a cliff hanger!

 The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley would make a great addition to your child's library.  There are great illustrations and it is a great story to share!

Thank you My Milwaukee Mommy for the review!! -Lance

A Review of 'The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley'

Hey readers of all ages!  Check out the following review of The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley!
‘Realoscope’ adventures sound fun and exciting!  The Realoscope of Ringgold Valley by Lance Justin Peter Okones with illustrations by Christopher Trefz,  (ISBN: 978-1-59092-634-5) is a great children’s book with captivating illustrations.  The story is easy to read for young readers or perfect for a bedtime story.  The excitement for learning leaps off the page from the beginning  to the last page.  With the help of the ‘Realoscope’, Lisa and Brian are able to make a new friend in the process of learning more about the moon.  The details of the moon dust are great; you can almost feel the surface under your feet.
I would recommend this book for all young readers and am looking forward to the continued adventures with the ‘Realoscope’.
