Piper Reed: Navy Brat by Kimberly Willis Holt

Piper Reed: Navy Brat by Kimberly Willis Holt

Piper Reed, Navy Brat, by Kimberly Willis Holt, is a great beginning to a fun new series!   

I absolutely love Piper Reed! She is a spunky 10 year old with lots of personality.  Piper doesn’t let the fact that she doesn’t read as well as everyone else in her class (she is dyslexic) get her down.  And neither does moving--well, not for long, anyway.  Her Dad is in the Navy, and so they move a lot.  Sometimes it’s really exciting, like when they go someplace overseas, but now they are moving to Florida and Piper isn’t sure she really wants to.  She has a great group of friends in her “club,” but she decides she’ll just have to start a new club in Florida! 

Join Piper as she moves to a new state, a new house, and a new school and meet the new friends she makes!  This is a great series, too, because it shows what it is like to be in a military family.

The library owns many of the Piper Reed series in both book and audiobook versions. You can join the Piper Reed club and play games at http://www.piperreed.com.
