    One thought on “The Midnight Feast”

    1. Camping out back is a rite of passage that every child ought to indulge in. Especially with all those scary noises and things that go bump in the night. I was getting hungry for those marshmallows as Billie B and Jack stayed up later and later. Here's a story that just about everyone can identify with I should think. I remember the pup tent in my own backyard (spiders and all)!

    2. I really enjoyed this book. It is a very realistic situation for younger children. They try to do things older children do but quickly learn that they might not be ready. Most children have the same problems. They try to do things their older siblings or friends do but realize that might still be too afraid or too young.

    3. While the covers of these books look similar to all the run-of-the-mill pink girlie books for younger readers, what's inside of them is not!

    4. Billie B Brown is a 'first chapter book' suitable for fairly young readers. The challenges faced by Billie are very realistic and address issues likely to be faced by primary aged children.

They are all set up in the backyard with tent, sleeping bags and a delicious midnight feast. But Billie isn't feeling too brave will the pair [...]

    5. 4-Sally Rippin, “Billie B Brown: The Midnight Feast” (​​Prahran, Victoria, Aust: Hardie Grant Egmont, 2010).“Billie and Jack are going to have a midnight feast! That's why Billie needs so many marshmallows.” (p5)The 'Billie B Brown' series by Australian author Sally Rippin is a wonderful set of books helping young kids acknowledge and deal with their range of emotions that arise from various childhood predicaments. These books reinforce the positive outcome of good decision making.

    6. Fun book to share with your kids about best friends and neighbors Billie and Jack. My kids 9 & 6 enjoyed it as well as myself. This whole series is pretty good for new chapter book readers. I like how the kids are kind to each other and have respect for their parents. I'm not some fuddy duddy old school parent, but I appreciate stories for kids that show examples kindness and thoughtfulness. There is just too much snarky separation of kids vs. parents and all, that it just gets under my skin [...]
