Book Title & Alexandra's Review

The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors by Drew Daywalt

Preschool and Kindergarten

The epic tale of the classic game Rock, Paper, Scissors.

You’ve played the game. Now read the legend of how it all began . . .

I found this book at Barnes and Nobles, and it is hilarious. It might not be as hilarious as ‘Walter the Farting Dog’ but just as amusing. I highly recommend this book for storytime at elementary schools. I still don’t get how Paper beats Rock but whatever.

Since this is my blog and I can talk about whatever I want, I decided to take the opportunity to introduce you to a different version of Rock, Paper, Scissors. It is called . . .

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock

This is a version of the traditional game created by some guy on the Internet and discussed on The Big Bang Theory.

Here are the rules:

Scissors cuts Paper

Paper covers Rock

Rock crushes Lizard

Lizard poisons Spock

Spock smashes Scissors

Scissors decapitates Lizard

Lizard eats Paper

Paper disproves Spock

Spock vaporizes Rock

. . . and as it always has, Rock crushes Scissors

Now I would like to sidetrack to talk about something important. While on YouTube, I found a boy named Ethan, who has leukemia and does a book vlog. He has a video that explains what he’s doing, so below is a link to his YouTube channel and his website:

In a nutshell, Ethan wants to build a SUPER library at the CHOC hospital so all the kids at the hospital will have books to read. He also wants to start a read-aloud program in patient’s rooms and common spaces where kids spend time.

I immediately liked this kid because he’s a fellow book lover like me. I read many books when I was younger, but not as many as this kid. I’m watching all of his book reviews, and there are 366 of them. I’m hoping to review as many books as he has, but it might take a while since I only update my blog every Saturday, and in 2016 Ethan reviewed a different book every day for his Daily Book Look Challenge. The books Ethan reviews are books that he hopes to get donated to his hospital library.

After learning about Ethan and Choco’s Book Club (ECBC), I have decided to donate to the CHOC hospital library. And since this book is on Ethan’s Wish List, I’m donating this one. I’m hoping to donate more in the future, but it’s hard to decide which books because there are hundreds of books on his Wish List. Anyone reading this, please consider donating to this wonderful cause.

(Update: It’s 2022, and Ethan is doing great. He is still collecting books for the CHOC hospital library. Since 2017, I have donated a dozen more books, including my own book Wild Imagination: The Adventures of Maddie and Albert.)
