Another great book about the great Skippito! My students love the voices and singing and clapping. They get a big kick out of Skippyjon thinking he is a chihuahua! ( )

In my opinion, Skippyjon Jones in Mummy Trouble is a good children’s book. I really liked that the author incorporate Spanish vocabulary words into the story. The main character in the story used the words chicos, vamanos, and frijoles. This definitely adds an element of interest and multiculturalism, while challenging the readers. I also liked the illustrations because they are so detailed and follow the story very well. On page two, the cat is sitting on a pyramid made out of kitty litter while reading a book about mummies. The pictures on this page are very colorful and detailed to the point of seeing the grains of kitty litter and a great display of all activities occurring in the bathroom, such as, the other kittens using the litter boxes and the mother cat watching them. Also, the words were written in different fonts, sizes, and colors that capture the eye and add a little more fun to reading the words. The big idea of this story is that reading and imagination can create an escape to another world. For the main character, reading about mummies in ancient Egypt transported him back in time. ( )

Skippyjon Jones has a wide imagination and goes on an adventure in his closet which in his imagination is Egypt. His adventure is to discover mummies. He comes across some friends in Egypt and continues with his imagination.

Comments:
I like how the author includes some Spanish words because it makes the text more interesting. This is a fun and funny story children would enjoy. The illustrations are also very good. ( )

Skippyjon goes into his closet for another adventure. This one is about ancient Egypt. Skippyjon has quite a time attempting to get back his old amigos peas.
It is a truly funny story that young children love.
