Review: Arthur and the Best Coach Ever (Arthur Good Sports #4)

User Review  - Taylor Beadle - Goodreads

This is a good chapter book for beginning readers. More a book that children would read at home than assigned at school. Has a lesson but not very deep. Read full review

User Review  - Kelly - Goodreads

A typical Arthur story just like the tv shows but with a being a "Good Sport" message. It's nice to show an adult who will admit to lack of knowledge. Read full review
