Overview

Justin and the Best Biscuits in the World by Mildred Pitts Walter, Catherine Stock

Ten-year-old Justin hates that his sisters and his mama are always fussing at him. They make him feel stupid because he can't clean his room or cook. But why should he? He'd rather be outside playing. After all, cooking and cleaning is just “women's work.” That's why Justin is glad when his grandfather invites him back to his ranch for the summer. Justin is sure he can get away from all the women and do some actual “men's work,” such as cleaning fish, mending fences, and riding horses. But back at the ranch, Justin learns some unexpected lessons and soon realizes that anyone can do anything once they learn how.

He started reading this even though it was a little above his reading level. He couldn't put it down. He also asked for more books by that author. That's about the best review a book can get!

I wavered between 4 and 5 stars because because I was looking at this from my adult perspective. I thought it was very well written, had enough historical detail and research to be of educational value, and the story was pretty good  and had an underlying positive message. A 4. Nine year old boy with a big sister reads it and it becomes a laugh out loud, can't put it down, "I know just how he feels!" 5 star book. He loved the ending. I really recommend this book for little brothers and big sisters. Would be great for a family book club because it deals with  situations in many households.

My students enjoyed this book because they have already read part of it in their regular literature books. They enjoyed the "story in a story" about Justin's ancestors. They also understood the concept of sharing work and duties and not dividing these things up between the sexes.

This book has exciting parts. If you like cowboys and rodeos this is a great book for you. It also teaches you about the history of this boy's family. I would recommend this book to my friends.
