Witches Don't Do Backflips Reviews

    “Witches Don't Do Backflips” includes four main characters two boys Eddie and Howie, two girls named Liza and Melody. The four friend are signed up for gymnastics, even though the girls were excited about it the boys were not so thrilled. Once the friends first see their gymnastics teacher, Miss Brewbaker, they suspect her of being a witch. This story doesn’t make it clear whether or not Miss Brewbaker is a witch but it does give the children and readers to suspect that she is. She looks like a witch with her long nose and wears black. She has a black pet cat named Merlin and say rhymes that sound like and may very well be a magical chant. Strange things happen when Miss Brewbaker recites her chants they come true or at least they seem to. Whether real magic or just a coincidence is up to the reader to decide but in the end it would be funny to think that witches do backflips.

    This is the tenth book in the The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids series. We've only read a few of them so far, but our oldest really likes them. We won't likely read these books in order, but it doesn't seem to matter much. It's a fun story and we like the fact that all of the strange characters may or may not be the "monsters" they are portrayed to be. We are looking forward to reading more books in this series.

    I loved the Bailey School Kids, particularly this book! These books were the reason why I began reading in the first place. Will never forget them :'). I had always hoped they'd make these book series into a tv series...haha they never did (secretly still wishing that one day it'll be tv series! Shhhhh!)Also, I used to use this book as a guide-book to being a witch. On Halloween, I would attempt to memorize the 'spells' in the book (it made me feel like a real witch). LOL. I was a weird kid. Okay? Okay. Haha.

    I liked this book. For me it was a really quick read, but it was entertaining and I was curious where it was going. I'm not sure if all of these end the same way, but you really never learn whether the teacher is a witch or not even when all the signs point to it. It's fun and imaginative. I also think it's a good early chapter book for kids to get into reading once they move away from longer picture books. It's not particularly difficult to read and the text is larger, so probably good for 8-14 year olds would enjoy this book. *I read this for a children's lit course*

    The collection of "The adventures of the Bailey School Kids" stories are among my all-time favorite children's books. Witty, mischievous and fun, these short and silly books continue to bring giggles to the young and old. Just as I have enjoyed them as a kid, my own children also love them today. I even catch myself re-reading them (alone) from time to time. What can I say? I guess I'll always be a BSK kid at heart.

    I enjoyed reading this book. It was about a group of kids who attend gymnastics. They believe their instructor is a witch. They think this because the instructor always says little rhymes. After she says the rhymes the kids can do perfect gymnastics. Throughout the book they try to decide if their hypothesis is true or not. Is their instructor a witch? Read this book to find out!

    The Bailey School Kids is a best-selling children's book series by Marcia Thornton Jones and Debbie Dadey. Its main characters are a group of four children (Eddie, Howie, Liza, Melody) who suspect some persons in the stories are popular folk lore or fairy tale characters. They are appealing because they mix a familiar story in with this group of kids. Mid-grammar school

    The kids thought that there was something suspicious about the lady but they did not know that she was a witch. They thought the ginger bread house was for Christmas and I thought it was to get little kids.

    I thought this was a cute book. It was quite quick to read...I thought I would read a few kids books before my kids I read 6 in 1 day...does wonders for my book numbers. Not deep nor very would like it.

    This was my favorite series as a child, I owned so many of them! But not the whole series. I don't remember when I got rid of them but now I'm kind of sad I did! They were really entertaining and quick, fun reads. Oh those silly kids and their giant imaginations!

    A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.

    This book is funny. There's lots of feelings in this book. We see how the kids feeling change throughout the book about Miss Brewbaker.

    Is the new gymnastic teacher in town really a witch? She chants rhymes and wears all black, but did she really turn a Eddie's Aunt's dog into a frog?

    I'd definitely recommend this series to young reluctant readers. I read it in primary school and really enjoyed it as well as others in the series.

    The Baily School Kids series follow the same pattern of suspicion, investigation, and ultimately solving the "mystery"
