Piper's two sisters are very different from her. Sam the youngest is a child prodigy. Her oldest sister is fifteen. She has a mind of her own. Piper is a rambunctious child of three. Her dad is in the navy which causes them to move a lot. I didn't like how their father and their friend's father have left for a couple of months. I would recommend this book. It was funny and sad. I loved it maybe you will to. Some describing words would be, smart word choice, funny, clubs, and gypsy. It was a really great book. Try it and you'll like it. By: Erica Edmisten

Written by a former Navy brat, Piper Reed: Navy Brat is the perfect book for a 2nd through 5th grader who has experienced moving to a new place and a new school. The author, Kimberly Willis Holt, did a nice job of creating Piper ¿ the fun, adventurous character that loves being a part of her Navy family. Holt is the author of award winning books such as My Louisiana Sky, Keeper of the Night, and When Zachary Beaver Came to Town.

Piper is in the 4th grade and she is used to moving. Her dad (who she calls ¿Chief¿) is in the Navy, and her family relocates each time his job requires it. Piper doesn¿t mind, she seems to find fun wherever she goes! Piper is the middle child, surrounded by an older, more dramatic, 7th grade sister; and a younger, 5 year old sister, who is known as a prodigy! Throughout the 12 quick chapters, the reader can follow Piper on her journey of moving to a new place, and experiencing all of the adventures along the way.

Piper Reed is an illustrated book with illustrations by Christine Davenier. The illustrations help bring the characters to life. Davenier has illustrated many books for young readers, including The First Thing My Mama Told Me, which was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book.

I am an Army brat and I thought I would like this book. However, it read more like a diary and didn't really engage me and want me to read more. The main character was kind of mean to her sisters and everything was "me, me, me". Not very easy to warm up to this character at all. Still an interesting story for military brats and the like.

My school is very close to Naval Air Station Point Mugu.
I used this book to open up my students to many of the situations
that many of our militay families face each year.
Most of my students belong to migrant worker families that have to
on occasion move.
I used this book as a learning tool. A key that allows me to have the
children open up and problem solve matters that they can relate to in this
book.

My eight year old daughter just finished reading this book and she loved it! It was easy reading and a well flowing story. It only took her a few days to complete it and usually she drags her feet on reading chapter books.

This is a great series. This is wonderful for those entering the chapter book scene. Those who have military family members, especially in the U.S. Navy, can really relate to this title. I think that this is a really good book to be nominated for the 2009-10 Texas Bluebonnet award list! I hope it wins, or comes in 2nd place!!
