{Synopsis} – Pick a book. Grow a Reader!
This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line, Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!
In the third book in this page-turning series, Tag, Skyla, and Blaze journey to the Whispering Oak in search of the next piece of the Ember Stone. There, they find strange creatures called grumblebees. But where is the magical stone? Thorn’s dark magic continues to spread. If Tag and his friends don’t find all of the pieces soon, Perodia will be destroyed! This action-packed series makes a great introduction to fantasy and quest stories for younger readers. Realistic black-and-white artwork appears on every page!

{My thoughts} – Tag, Skyla and Blaze get to go on a longer adventure this time. They are looking for the third piece to the Ember Stone. It seems that whenever they get close to finding parts of the stone they run into some of Thorn’s spies. Aside from having to outsmart them, they also run into animals in despair that they take the time to help.

I am really enjoying this series. It shows that if you want something you have to work hard to get it. It also teaches children that you make more friends by being helpful and helping those in their time of need. It shows that you can accomplish almost anything if you think about ways in which a task can be completed.

I think that any child that enjoys animals and adventures with enjoy reading this book.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
