Review: I am Lucille Ball is all about a girl that dreams of being an actor. Everyone doubts her because of how different she is. Nobody accepts her into schools to be an actor. Soon one person recognizes her talents and her dream comes true. She stars in musicals and shows. Finally one of her shows I Love Lucy aired on CBS on October 15, 1951. Everything started falling into place for Lucy, but to find out what happens next read I am Lucille Ball.
Funny, weird, different, and exciting. Those are only some of the fun and happy characteristics of Lucille Ball. If you love comics and books that will still help you learn to read then, I am Lucille Ball is a perfect book for you. Also if you are a kid who loves pictures, then I am Lucille Ball is more than just pictures, the pictures help make a picture in your mind! ItÕs like a picture making another picture! How crazy is that? Plus if you donÕt find a lot of books with funny scenes, but you are dying to find one, I am Lucille Ball is the best book for that. This book is perfect for kids from kindergarten-3rd grade, and some older kids may like it, it. I am Lucille Ball doesnÕt have a high vocabulary level so it is perfect for newer readers. Adding on to why this book is so great is the fact that kids will love the character because she looks like a little girl in the pictures, but is really 17! These are all very entertaining, but donÕt forget that this is nonfiction a story and was all about Lucille BallÕs real life. Most importantly do not forget that his book is trying to tell people that if you fail donÕt stop, keep on trying.
