Channing O'Banning and Turquoise Trail by Angela Spady Review

From dinosaurs to Native Americans, fourth grade artist extraordinaire Channing O'Banning learns more than she ever imagined on a high-flying journey to the American West. Channing, who keeps a pencil in her ponytail, is back in action when she discovers that a dinosaur is hiding under the school playground. Or is it? Just when the feisty artist is sure she’s cracked the big mystery, Channing is proven wrong . . . and as a result she wants to hide under a rock forever. Luckily, the Wild West has plenty of rocks to hide under! Channing's latest adventure as she draws her way through another exciting escapade will delight young readers as well as teachers who seek engaging material for the classroom, from essential topics like social studies and science to the encouragement of self-expression through art.

My Review:Channing O'Banning and Turquoise Trail by Angela Spady


I laughed, learned some things and now want to go turquoise hunting.

I liked the characters. Maddy, Channing and Cooper found a interesting rock by the playground during recess. They are going to dig it up. They are learning about rocks in school. About the different Indians that lived here in the past and now days.
The kids share their knowledge and are having fun till Channing's older sister makes fun of her with her friends.
Channing likes to draw all the times and keeps a pencil in her ponytail. Her family encourages her to learn and explore her talents.
Their is even a pet pig in the story.
It is a entertaining book while they are learning about rocks, history, museums, even dinosaur bones.
The drawings are good and help the story along the way. Tammie Lyon dose the Illustrations.

I was given this ebook and asked in return to give honest review of it.
