Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Eight-year-old EllRay is down to one-and-a-half best friends, which leads his little sister to point out the obvious: he needs new friends. A spare, at least. For emergencies. So EllRay decides to audition other boys for the role of Spare Best Friend.

EllRay's class is brimming with possibilities, but no one seems to share his exact interests. What's so great about car parts? And why would anyone think boring instruction manuals are fun to read? But EllRay isn't worried--he can fix any problems once he gets to know each kid. And the only way to get to know them is to come up with fun things to do at recess. When he's the Recess King, everyone will want to be his friend

   Great read for reluctant readers...
My son's favorite book series and this says a lot, because he is not an avid reader! Its like grabbing teeth to get him to read! Even for adults, storylines are very interesting and the material is culturally relevant. It is nice to have a character to which my son can relate and looks like him!
   Read before sharing with children
I bought a few Elray books to help my sons discover the joy of reading and comprehension. We made it through one when we started the second book, what I thought was a little black boy being snarky, turned into a little boy with a negative tone constantly. Issues with his father and comparing himself with others. I looked at the author and made sense. Please read everything before you place it in a child's hand.
   7yr old son loves this book!
My 7yr son was ready for a chapter book and we're so glad we found it. Recess King is funny and captivating. We will probably buy more of the series.
   Great kids book.
My son completed this book and asked me to purchase the entire collection. His teacher usually wants him to read twenty minutes a day, but he ends up reading an entire chapter. It is a must-have for many.
   Great book but challenging for young readers
I bought this book for my 7 - year-old son. Depending on the reading level of your child, this may prove to be a little challenging. I wouldn 't recommend this book for advanced reading unless your child is pretty independent. Overall, this is a great book and well written. For some young readers it was just a little difficult.
   Held My Hyper Boy's Attention
This is my first chapter book of my son. My very hyper son usually loses interest quickly with out pictures. This book kept his attention and after we finished it, he asked me to buy another.
   Good little book series
My son is 7 and sometimes he doesn 't like the books chosen for them to read in school. They cater to his demographics rarely and he loses interest fast. I ordered this book to see how he would like it, and he really enjoyed it. I order more of these for him.
   Thumbs up
I bought this book so that I could donate it to a program at my job.
I am determined to promote reading, in particular promoting and supporting African-American literature for our kiddos, given the limits of this literature in DFW suburban schools. Ordered several in this series for my 5 year old boy, but only one of the books by The Recess King was really appropriate for our 5 year old. I was expecting a more picture book, and these are more chapter books with some B & amp ; W pictures. May be appropriate for an advanced 5 year old that is really a fan of reading, but was more advanced for our 5 year old. I decided to give the nearly 9 year old boy all the others.
   Great characters and illustrations
My 9 - year old nephew fell immediately in love with the characters of the story. He even asked that I would order the rest of the books in the series. I am trying to get him to fall in love with reading and this book and its characters have certainly sparked his love of reading.
