    Sidney and Sydney are victims of the very common crime of sharin

    Sidney and Sydney are victims of the very common crime of sharing the same name (spelled a little differently) with another person. While the story is cute and has a subtle message of kindness, it falls a little flat.

    It is not a new theme in children's books to have a boy and girl become friends. It happens in almost every book I've read. However, the nature of their friendship is charming. Sidney's mom is an artist, and Sydney wants to be an artist when she grows up. Sydney loves Galaxy Conquest, which just so happens to also be Sidney's favorite video game. When problems with Halloween arise, Sidney and Sydney decide to do something creative and selfless so that everybody wins.

    The plot is fairly simple, and nothing really stands out in it. I had been hoping for more of an issue to happen than the one that did. But this is the first book in the series, so much of the book is dedicated to establishing the children's friendship.

    Third Grade Mix-Up is a quick, easy read that most kids would enjoy, but probably not fall in love with.

    The Illustrations: I love the inclusion of full color illustrations throughout the book. Not every page has artwork, but most pages do. Luisa Montalto has a unique style that goes perfect with an early reader novel.

    SIDNEY & SYDNEY: THIRD GRADE MIXUP by Michele Jakubowski is an interesting children's book. *It teaches you to make new friends and to look at the name tag before you set at a desk and make sure its yours* A very enjoyable for children of all ages. As you can see my 8 year old granddaughter enjoyed it. A wonderful debut series by this author. Grandparents a great read for your grandchildren. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
