    Anastasia Krupnik is a great book for young readers.

    Anastasia Krupnik is a story about an ambitious young fourth-grade girl who had dreams of becoming a poet as was her father. Her dreams were crushed, however, when her teacher, Mrs. Westvessel, gave her an F on her poetry project. As the year progressed, Anastasia became angrier and angrier. To make matters worse, all of the boys made fun of her. In addition her name was too long to fit on the front of a tee shirt. She desperately wanted a shirt with her name on it because each of the other fourth-grade girls had one with her own name printed on it. Another problem was the news that she was to be a big sister and no longer an only child. The biggest trauma of all was the death of her grandmother whom she had just gotten to know really well. The loss of her grandmother caused Anastasia to change her attitude. She finally realized the difference between minor and major problems. I believe Anastasia Krupnik will appeal to you, young students, because you will be able to relate to Anastasia¿s problems. You will be able to relate to crushed dreams, to being teased by other students, to not having the same type of clothing as other have, to learning that one will no longer be the only child, to becoming close to a relative only to have him or her die soon afterward. You will be able to take with you the lessons that Anastasia learned from her fourth-grade experiences.

    Anastasia Krupnik

    I thought it was a goo and funny book. The fact that a girl her age was trying to impress a boy by acting like him shocked me a little bit. She gets to know know her grandmother well until she passes away. The whole family was in tears! Then another upcoming event in this book was that her mother is going to have a baby and her parents didnt even tell her at first. She doesnt want a baby brother but thats tough luck for her. She doesnt do well trying to impress a boy and she feels as if her teacher doesnt really like her. I thought that Anastasia want to have a baby in the family because most girls would want it. I dont want to spoil the book for anyone who is reading this review and to find out more you can read the book yourself.
