Channing O'Banning and the Rainforest Rescue by Angela Spady

Channing O'Banning is an adventurous new character that readers will fall in love with. A third grade artist extraordinaire with a penchant for gummie turtles and funky sneakers, Channing always keeps a pencil in her ponytail so she can draw in her secret sketchbook. And with best friends like Cooper Newberry and Maddie Martinez, trouble seems to follow wherever she goes!

In CHANNING O'BANNING AND THE RAINFOREST RESCUE, the feisty little artist discovers that Maddy has gone ga ga over the new boy at school. Green with envy, Channing decides that Marco, "the best friend thief," is her arch enemy. But when she and her pet pot bellied pig, Teeny, end up in the jungles of the rainforest, she finds that Marco may be her only hope for survival! This fun-filled new series will not only empower second and third graders to help others, but will also encourage them to express themselves through art.

Stay tuned for the another Channing O'Banning book, and see what Greenville's little artist will draw next!

My Review:Channing O'Banning and the Rainforest Rescue by Angela Spady


Channing O'Banning is a charming 4th grader. She is a artist who always has a colored pencil in her ponytail. She has favorite subjects in school. Ones she does not like. She finds cool things to draw when she on vacation to Costa Rico. She learns about the Rainforest and cloudforest.

This book is good fun and educational too. Channing learns some quick reasons why it is important to save the rainforests. That some plants are medicine and some animals and birds that live there.

Channing also learns that other kids can know more stuff than she does. You can always use more friends. That when she does not study her tests show that too.

I would love to visit the places that the O'Bannings got to visit on their vacation. Would love to see the pictures they took in the book. The book describes the things they saw so well and believable.

I was given this book to review no money took part of it and the review is my own opinion.
