Review of 'Zack in the Middle' by Dia L. Michels Oct 22, 2001
'Zack in the Middle' is a delightful book about a seven year old boy who is surrounded by an older sister and a younger sister. Told from a middle child point of view, the book examines the good and not so good points of being the one in the middle. The story leaves you with positive feelings of Zack being surrounded by love. Written as an easy reader, this book is a good addition to beginner reader collections for libraries and classrooms. Colorful drawings, a limited vocabulary, and no more than two sentences on a page, make this an excellent choice for an emerging reader who also happens to be a middle child.
Man in the middle! Oct 11, 2001
This is a true story about a boy in our school. We love having him celebrated in print. We new him first as the baby brother then as the big brother and now as the proud fourth grader with his own biograhy in our easy reader section. Boys love this true story. Thank you, Dia.
