    1. This author tried so hard--the protagonist is a middle class African american 3rd grader just living the 3rd grade life. I didn't mind it as a read aloud, except for the on the fly editing. I was ready to be a booster and then she just kept throwing in little useless throwaway gender stereotypes "Girls be like, boys be like" "I can't do that because boys don't" "She would think that because she's a girl" I just skipped those sentences when reading with my son. But it definitely keeps me from rec [...]


    2. Today I read Ellray Jakes is a Rock Star, the main character is named Ellray who is an eight year old that goes to elementary school. I think it is a drama book because there is no tragedy or comedy and adventure. The conflict was between him and his father because his father issued an ultimatum about the crystals. The story was all about Ellray trying to restore his dad’s crystals before he got back from Utah. I found it confusing that he went to the principal’s office because I thought he [...]


    3. The second book in Sally Warner’s Ellray Jake series, this book continues Ellray’s desire to be the ‘cool one’ in class. However in his fight to be top ‘cool kid’ in his 3rd grade class, he decides ‘borrow’ part of his Dad’s prized crystal collection to show his class. However all the attention that this brings leads him to forget that the crystals are not his, and to establish his coolness in class he gives some of his Dad’s crystals away. When his Dad finds out what has hap [...]


    4. All of Ellray's classmates have something to share. Corey is champion swimmer. Kevin is tall and his dad is rich. Jared's dad has an ATV with flames on the side. Ellray has nothing for which he can brag. He decides to take some of he rocks, from his geologist dad's rock collection, to show to his classmates. Everyone in his class is impressed and before he knows it, Ellray is giving the rocks away. This is the second book in the Ellray series. I was looking for a book/series that I could recomme [...]


    5. Have you ever started to say something…and then things get out of hand? Like, yeah, you can take this – and you are about to say “and bring it back to me tomorrow” but everyone starts screaming in delight and your important words are drowned out and it’s too late!This is what happens to EllRay Jakes when he “borrows” some valuable things from his dad’s home office and brings them to school to impress his classmates. EllRay’s plan is to return the items before his dad gets back [...]


    6. We found this to be another good read in the EllRay series. As a parent I like the real world challenges and problems that face EllRay. The classroom scenarios seem plausible. The way situations are handled and solved work well for discussions as we are reading. Most of the middle grade chapter books we read have female main characters so EllRay is a fresh voice to read. On the whole - two thumbs up for this series.


    7. Sweet, easy fiction title for 1st - 3rd grade readers. Nice family relationships, and I especially appreciate that it's an African-American family and that it's aimed at boys. Many easy fiction series are not very diverse and mostly appeal to girls, so it's nice to have this series as an option to bring to schools.


    8. That was an obvious lack of diversity in our transitional text sets examples, so we looked for some new titles. It lead us to Sally Warner's character Ellray who as a third grader is looking for popularity in his classroom. Accessible character from a stable professional family in familiar situations featuring a strong moralistic outcome, Warner's book will be enjoyed by lots of kids.


    9. Good chapter book with African American protagonist - though this is not a big deal in the book. Ellray faces the sort of situation that readers will be able to relate to and deals with it in a realistic manner. Not sure why the cover illustration of Ellray and the inside illustrations are so different.


    10. EllRay's dad, a geologist, has a big rock collection, but EllRay can't imagine why anybody would be interested in it. But he's wrong--when he takes it to school, everybody is impressed. So impressed that they keep the rocks for themselves, and EllRay has to figure out how to get them back!



    11. 3rd Grade Girl says: This book helps you learn that being popular isn't everything. Perfect for 7 and 8 year olds.



    12. Students will probably appreciate the difficult situations EllRay gets into and admire the way he gets out of them. Simple and believable with positive adult characters.


    13. Somewhat funny and appealing. Too many characters at the beginning. Maybe I would have liked it better if I read the first in the series but this sort of book should be able to stand alone too.


    14. Wonderful book that celebrates a child solving his own problems with bullies and others. Nice to read a book with that type of celebration without helicopter parents. Beautiful book.
