SPRING LAKE, Mich. (WZZM) - A local family has started a book review blog online called "Bookie Woogie." It's an online resource the Zenz family started to help other kids choose good books to read.
The idea of the book review blog sparked about two and a half years ago by Aaron Zenz, the father of six kids and a children's author and illustrator. He brought up the idea to his three oldest kids; Isaac, 12, Gracie, 10, and Lily 8. They loved the idea and got right to work choosing a book a week to read, discuss and review online.
"We talk about what we liked about it, what the story was about, and what your favorite part was, " says Isaac, of the review process.
"It's been really fun," says Zenz, "...It's kind of a unique spin on book review blogs that are out there... to have these kids lend their voices to it and share what they think."
So far, the Zenz bloggers have reviewed nearly 100 books, and they don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
