Comments Don't Feed the Geckos!

  • Katie Fitzgerald

    Though Carlos wants to be welcoming to his cousin Bernardo, who must share his room temporarily while his family relocates, he finds himself worrying when Bernardo proves to be a better soccer player than Carlos, and acts recklessly around Carlos’s beloved pet geckos.I would place this book at the very highest end of the beginning chapter book spectrum, along with the Alvin Ho, Justin Case, and Mason Dixon series. The tone of the story is suited to a second or third grader, and there are a few [...]


  • Carla Johnson-Hicks

    This is a cute chapter book for beginning independent readers. Carlos goes to Carver Elementary school and has worked hard to become a good student. He tries hard to play soccer to please his dad, but really wants to do something involving animals. He has an ant farm and 3 geckos, but if he gets 100 on 5 spelling tests in a row, his dad will get him a butterfly habitat and his room will be his oasis. When he finds out that his cousin Bernardo is moving in with them and will be sharing his room, [...]

    In Don't Feed the Geckos, Carlos finds out that having his cousin stay with him isn't as fun as he hoped. Carlos feels more or less like a real kid with kid worries, though maybe a bit intelligent when it comes to animals. Like many of English's books, the plot is fairly heavy on the issues with some occasional nods toward what being a child is really like. At times the lesson part is a bit too obvious and the ending is a bit rushed. I think young readers who are gaining confidence in their read [...]

    Cute story about the conflicts Carlos has when his cousin comes to live with them for a short time. Bernardo's behavior is annoying and upsetting when he gets attention from his father because he is better at playing soccer than Carlos! Lots of good situations that show bullying behaviors and would lend themselves to some good classroom discussions. Love the facts about animals embedded in the story, since Carlos is a true animal lover. Great for grades 2-3.


  • Margie

    A chapter book for young readers who are progressing with their reading and vocabulary, this is a good addition for libraries, whether public or school. The main characters are Latino boys which will be very appealing especially for those of that population to be able to read something about people like themselves. Family is also important in this story as well as learning how to stand up for oneself.


  • TJ Burns

    I received a copy of this book from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's Book Group via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


  • Quintina

    ARC NetgalleyAn adorable heartfelt chapter book for youngsters new to chapter books.


  • Lynn

    Carlos learned about misunderstandings, jealousy, and responsibilities to one's family. This series gives the reader insights to well-rounded and realistic characters.


  • Sarah

    Good for a 2-3 grade boy.


  • Karen Arendt

    Young readers will easily relate to Carlos' feelings about his cousin coming to stay with them and the problems that Carlos experiences with Bernardo.
