    Reviewed by Julie M. Prince for Kids @ TeensReadToo.com

    Jake, also known as The Pain to his big sister, has plenty to deal with at school. From the bully who steals his magnifying glass to the disastrous Bring Your Pet to School Day, navigating the first grade is no simple matter. Luckily his big sister, Abigail The Great One, has been through it all before. When she's not too busy being great, she lends a helping hand, and in the process, she finds that even third graders need a little help now and then.<BR/><BR/>Judy Blume has the absolute greatest knack for illustrating real problems kids face every day -- the ones most adults blow off or overlook. Blume dissects and magnifies kid issues, bringing to light exactly why The Great One wants to change her name and why The Pain is so distraught about the loss of his toy elephant. No problem is too small to be important to the main characters. <BR/><BR/>Take real kid voices and real kid problems, add in Blume's classic humor and anecdotes, and you have a formula for success. What a fun companion to SOUPY SATURDAYS WITH THE PAIN & THE GREAT ONE. <BR/><BR/>With seven brand-new stories, this book has excellent read-aloud or read alone appeal!

    Shawna- A First Grade Teacher

    I would definitely recommend this book as a wonderful read. My students that have younger siblings or older siblings would really like this book and be able to relate to Jake 'The Pain' or Abigail 'The Great'. As a teacher it is going to go on my Read Aloud list for next year!
