The Spy Game by JD Holiday Book Review and #Giveaway

The Spy Game Book Cover_edited-1 for posting 9-13-12We are a huge book family. Reading at bed time is a must for us. Having a variety of different books helps keep bed time exciting. I was thrilled to get the chance to review The Spy Game. I have been watching the TV show, Burn Notice, and Cooper calls it my spy show. So this helped relate to the book.

About the Book

Eddie would love to have a puppy to play with. A puppy would pull on a rope. Catch a ball and lick your face. But his Uncle brings Eddie an older dog named after a famous spy. What can you do with an old dog? It probably couldn’t learn new tricks and the only thing this dog did was stare. It’s what they find to do together that makes them the best of friends.

My Review

This book is full of color and characters your kids can relate to. That is very important in a children’s book. The one downside of this book is I felt I had to add a few words to help with explanation a bit more. I knew what JD was trying to say but a five year old want’s sure. We have read the book several more time since we received it. Now Cooper adds his own version of “spy” to the book from what he has seen from TV or learned from his friends.
