This all-new chapter-book series based on the successful toy line focuses on Goldie Blox’s mission to encourage girls to roll up their sleeves and get building! Each128-page early chapter book is a nonstop laugh-out-loud adventure and perfect for future engineers ages 6 to 9. Check out Goldie Blox Rules the School, Goldie Blox and the Three Dares and Goldie Blox and the Best! Pet! Ever!
When Goldie Blox accidentally blows off the roof of her school, she and her friends Val, Ruby, and Li have to work together and use their creative know-how to rebuild the school.
When Goldie finds her beloved Gran’s book of 100 dares, she is determined to complete the last three challenges—before Gran’s 77th birthday. With the clock ticking, Goldie and her friends, the Gearheads, must use all their smarts and creativity to finish the dares and make Gran proud.
When Goldie Blox enters her beloved dog Nacho in a pet talent show contest, she’s pretty sure he could win. But Nacho isn’t perfect. He doesn’t sit or shake. Instead, he farts and chases his tail. And the competition heats up when Goldie’s rival Zeek brags that he can beat Nacho with an expensive robot dog that obeys every command. Zeek thinks he can buy his way to the top, but Goldie is determined to prove him wrong.
I am a proud mom to 3 girls and I am especially fond of books that promote science and math to girls in a cool and fun way. These books are geared for girls ages 6-9 and with an almost 6 and an almost 9 year old these are perfect reads for my family. My girls both love the books and laughed many times as I read them. Older kids might not like the far-fetched stories but for the intended audience it is perfect. The text is large and throughout the book are cute black and white illustrations. At 128 pages these books are great for those new to reading chapter books. The characters are easy to fall in love with and they show young girls that building things is fun! Goldie Blox is the quirky new kid that girls today will want to be like.
