Kia and her team from New York, the Crimson Five, made it through Nationals. Now they are on their way to the Piedmont Global Championships in Quebec. There they will compete against other kids just like them, inventors and problem solvers from around the world.
But when they arrive, the team is presented with a new task that they must solve, and in only two weeks. When lack of inspiration and nasty rumors leave the team with doubts. Kia knows that they will have to do something to bring them all back together before it is too late or they will lose the competition.
This was a very entertaining story about a group pf five very creative and intelligent young people as they compete for the chance to have their invention created.
Kia is the main character of this story, but in reality it follows all five of her team members. These kids are very bright for their age, but they are still young children so they have doubts, and worries and fears.
I loved the ideas and the inventions the Crimson Five and the other teams came up with. I wish I had read book one beforehand in order to know more about their first invention, but despite that fact, I was still able to follow along.
The settings were very imaginative and intriguing. Their tree-houses were very creative, as well as the thinking pool. Though I wish I had been able to know how to get across those jungle gym bars.
All in all, I really enjoyed this book and would give it four out of five stars. I would recommend it to young readers with a love for invention.

We all know the traditional nighttime prayers for small children. Also the prayers we say right before we eat. But we don’t have to be eating or sleeping to be able to pray. These baby animals and their families will help children to learn to pray for all kinds of situations and any time of day or night.
I found this to be a very cute little book of prayers. The illustrations are beautiful, with soft textures and soothing colors. Each new page shows a different set of animals, presumably a child with one of their parents, though not all of the pages are this way. One simply has two young squirrels and the corresponding prayer in about a sibling.
The prayers are simple and for the most part. Flows well. There are a couple that might be a little more difficult to for the new reader. The prayers cover a wide variety of times and situations throughout the day that one might pray. Everything from waking up to not sharing your toys to sick loved ones to bedtime.
My children and I really enjoyed this cute little book of prayers. My children also loved the animal illustrations. I especially liked the Bible verses attached to each prayer.
I would give this book four out of five stars and would recommend it to young readers who enjoy similar books.
