Nicole C. Kear and her series, “The Fix-It Friends,” has jumped to the top of the list when it comes to books that our daughter is just in love with. We would consider these easy read chapter books with Veronica Conti as the narrator the book addresses issues that kids have to deal with on a normal everyday basis making them super relatable. “Three’s A Crowd” dealt with the issue of feeling left out as a new girl, Margot, moves to the school and becomes friends with Cora, Veronica’s best friend.
Nicole does a great job at presenting the issues in a fun story format and what we really found interesting is that is really sparked a great discussion with our daughter. She was able to relate to Veronica and even spoke to us about the times she has felt left out in a very similar situation. Any book, or series, that create a dialog between parents and children is a winner in our book. We look forward to more of “The Fix-It Friends” in the future, Kear has a great gift that is backed up by her knowledge on child development.
There are two best friends, Cora and Veronica, but when Cora meets Margot she doesn’t spend much time with Veronica anymore. It was a good book because it talks about friendship. This is a story that is something I have been through, being left out, so it was interesting to read about. I liked reading about their secret handshake.
