BOOK REVIEW: Want to Play? by Paula Yoo & Illustrated by Shirley Ng-Benitez


A group of five children from diverse backgrounds learn about friendship and how to navigate common childhood challenges, new experiences, and the world around them in realistic and kid-friendly stories.

It's a warm, sunny day, and the gang heads to the neighborhood playground to play. What should they play? Henry wants to play basketball, and Padma wants to play Follow the Leader. Finally Pablo comes up with a great idea: to play pretend. It’s a game that everyone can do easily. They can pretend to be archaeologists, astronauts, and explorers. There’s no limit to what they imagine they can be!

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 9 years, 4 months


This book was enjoyable. 

It is about a boy that goes to the park to play with his friends. They had a lot of fun and had big imaginations and pretended to be all kinds of things. They pretended like they were in a cave and then at the beach. All of the friends were different, but all got along and played with each other. 

My favorite character is Henry because he is very nice. My favorite part is when they are pretending to be at the beach because the descriptions and pictures look and sound so real. 

I recommend this book to kids that like to play with their friends and have big imaginations. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 6 to 7.
