A summer day is the perfect time to chill out with a good book. TFK Kid Reporters have reviewed some of the hottest books of the season. Below, TFK Kid Reporter Sophia Hou shares her thoughts on Simon B. Rhymin’, by Dwayne Reed. Check back next week for another review.

Line Break

Simon is starting fifth grade and hopes to become a famous rapper called Notorious D.O.G. But he’s shy about using his voice to express his ideas and thoughts. When a teacher asks the class to give an oral presentation, Simon must find the strength to change and learn to overcome his fears. I rate Simon B. Rhymin’, by Dwayne Reed, an 8 out of 10. It’s an inspirational book that will give confidence to readers who are going through similar struggles.
