What Kind of Book is How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Lemony Snickers
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
3.75 / 7.0

How I Spent My Summer Vacation is an imaginative read from a little boy names Bleff (that was a name I’ve never heard before) who tells in class how he spent his summer being adopted into a band of cowboys. The book has some clever rhyming, and the little boy saves the day when he uses a red tablecloth to steer the stampeding cows away. I’m not sure there’s a particular lesson to draw from the book–perhaps, be creative and solve problems.
