    One thought on “Mae and June and the Wonder Wheel”

    1. I'm always trying to find good, high interest books for my daughter, who is a struggling reader. My daughter is in mid-second grade and reads at a late first grade/early second grade level, and trails far behind most of her peers at her school. My daughter has been interested in chapter books, but we often can't find any easy enough for her where she can read it without being frustrated. Mae and June and the Wonder Wheel says it is for grades 1-3, and I think that is very accurate for most child [...]

    2. Cute chapter book about pets and friendship. July's choice for my Granddaughter who's in between first and second grade.She'll like the fact one of the girls on the cover resembles her along with the idea of a dog who can speak(only to her), floor disco dancing , and crazy hair day. I wish now that the kids have reading lexiles, they would be published on the books or reviews so choices for appropriate reading level would be easier! 4 stars

    3. 4.4 starsAs always I read this to my kids. It was super cute, but it didn't hold their attention as well as I'd hoped. Still it is well written and for a short book is pretty well developed. My favorite part are the graphics. Cute!

    4. E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineJune loves to play with her dog Sam, especially since she is the only one to whom the dog can talk. When her grandmother sends her a big chalkboard on a wheel, with detailed instructions on how to use it, June is thrilled, and she and Sam have a lot of fun completing the suggested tasks. It's even more fun when a new girl moves in next door and ends up in June's class. Mae seems really nice, but classmate April is bound and determined that Mae will be HER f [...]

    5. First sentence: Sammy is my best friend. He has four legs, really soft ears, and a tail that can wag slow, medium, and super-fast. Premise/plot: June is looking for a new friend. She's looking for someone who is fun, friendly, and full of adventure. Sammy, her dog, will help her be a judge of who's got potential in the friend department. Sammy is a talking dog. (Does he really talk? Well, that's up to readers, I suppose. June is a believer that they speak the same language.) There's a new girl m [...]

    6. This is a children's chapter book where June and Mae are new neighbors. After becoming best friends they turn to the Wonder Wheel to determine what their adventures will be each day. Each spin brings fun times for both girls. Perhaps they need to find something blue that day or do a good deed. In addition to this June can hear her dog, Sammy talk. Should she tell Mae?This book is suggested for grades 2-4 but I believe as a read aloud book children younger than this can enjoy it also. This high e [...]

    7. This one grew on me the more I read it. It’s a very gentle introduction to not so great things like sassy older siblings, mean girls at school (who are 3 dimensional!), and making new friends. At the same time it’s very sweet and light and fluffy and I hope the girls’ plan at the end cones to fruition. :)

    8. This is one of those books I wish I'd written - especially the base of the story being a creative Grammy sending a really cool gift to encourage her granddaughter to be similarly creative! Having a friend to share the activities with is super gravy!The idea of 3 friends named April, Mae and June might seem a bit corny, but the way the author introduced them into the story, it works!

    9. This seems geared for 1st/2nd graders but possibly too long/ wordy for most kids in those grade levels. I also felt that the characters were underdeveloped and when the book ended I essentially felt nothing. Just a blah book for me.

    10. June, who can talk with her dog Sammy, sees a new girl next door and wonders how to become her friend. Meanwhile, she and Sammy are having fun with a present Grandma has sent in the mail that challenges them to new adventures each day.

    11. I like June. She is full of energy and loves life. The wonder wheel sent by her grandmother is a great idea Readers may just take that idea and create their own wheels. June's friendship problems are realistic and relatable for children. This is a great story for first and second graders.

    12. I love the theme of friendship and the nuggets about wonder. I wrestle with this being an early reader or middle grade. The picture support is less, font size is not too small, continuous plot.

    13. Cute story of friendship. Definitely written in a way that children will relate to and fall in love with June.

    14. There are some kids out there who would really like this and we do have it in our library collection. Great for grades 2-3 reader. It just didn't appeal to me.

    15. June is so loveable. This story is full of wonder, and I can see kids begging their parents for their own wonder wheel. I would highly recommend to young readers.

    16. This is a sweet book. It's not a favorite, but it is upbeat and positive. It just didn't have tons of development, but then again it is for very young kids.

    17. Synopsis:In this chapter book for young readers, June is thrilled to get a new neighbor: Mae!

Whether it’s pretending to be a dog for a day or collecting things that are blue, the girls never know what each day will bring. Also, June has a secret: her dog Sammy can talk, but only she can hear him. Will her new best friend believe her if she tells her? ()Review:This is a c [...]

    18. Received this as a giveaway.This book was adorable. It kept the kids attention piqued. The chapters were short and easy to read/follow. Lots of pictures to describe the text which makes the kids extra happy. They're hit or miss with most chapter books but this one was great and they asked that I keep reading a few chapters a night until we were done.Cute story of making new friends and elementary school dramatics.

    19. Mae and June and the Wonder Wheel by Charise Mericle Harper is about June who loves to play with her dog Sam, especially since she is the only one to whom the dog can talk.

    20. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review. Thanks for making my wish come true on Netgalley. I spotted this book some time ago and wished for it to be there. This was a cute book about friendship, about pets, about family. June was a fabulous little kid, though a bit too much over the top at times. Still I liked how she stayed true to herself, I have seen a lot of kids change because people act mean or stupid towards them or how they act/dress. Luckily, our MC just cont [...]

    21. So Upbeat It Almost Wore Me OutThe premise here is that June receives a surprise present - it's a homemade "Wonder Wheel". Every day you spin it, and then pick an "action" card depending on the category it stops at. Maybe you write a poem, maybe you dress up funny, maybe you do a good deed. It's a swell idea, and actually something you could do at home yourself.Anyway, this wheel gets June busy and active. Soon she has her classmates pumped up. Then her new across-the-street neighbor. Even her f [...]

    22. June is a little cheerful girl. She and her dog Sammy have lots of fun. The way she connects with Sammy is really cute. She feels that only she can understand his talks and no one else can. She completely understands by his actions, what he's trying to say. That only shows how close they both are. Since her sister, Isabella, is no more interested to play with her, she and Sammy look for a new friend. The new friend should however, have the qualities similar to June & Sammy.One day, she gets [...]

    23. A fun and exciting new chapter book for kids of all ages. Young readers will especially enjoy June and her vivid imagination and sense of adventure. Her best friend is her dog Sammy. They talk about everything together, although June has the only ears in the world that can hear Sammy talk. They decide one day to find a new best friend that meets the three Fs - Friendly, Fun, Full of Adventure! June notices the new girl Mae that has moved into her neighborhood and she can't wait to see if she mee [...]
