Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Lucy prepares her younger sister for the rigors of kindergarten; PW praised the ``droll illustrations'' in this ``sweetly endearing tale,'' adding that ``Schwartz provides a funny, balanced view of the emotions experienced by a child just starting school.'' Ages 4-7. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 Annabelle Swift is more than ready for kindergarten, for she has been tutored by her older sister, Lucy. However, when Annabelle announces herself as ``Annabelle Swift, kindergartner!'' during a roll call, her classmates are reduced to giggles. Then, when Mr. Blum brings out the color lollipops, poor Annabelle embarrasses herself by calling one ``Blue Desire,'' for Lucy taught her the colors at their mother's make-up table. Encouraged by a recess pep talk from Lucy and supported by her own common sense and her lucky name tag, Annabelle proves her mettle by successfully counting the milk money and becoming the first kindergarten milk monitor. In illustrations that carefully evoke the naive and awkward drawings of children, Schwartz captures the essence of childhood complete with pedal-pushers, pinafores, and 6? milk. Line and wash illustrations in crayon-bright colors reveal a classroom that is cheerful, warm, and inviting. The children pictured are universal yet individual, while the adults are solid and supportive. Schwartz is in fine form summoning the fears and feelings that all children experience at one time or another. Preschoolers will readily empathize with Annabelle's plight, while beginning readers will enjoy a giggly head start on such school stories as Cleary's Ramona the Pest (Morrow, 1968). Schwartz' humor lightens the gravity of Annabelle's early problems without negating them so that young readers will cheer all the louder at Annabelle's decisive victory.
