Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Big Bob is not happy. He is the biggest kid in his second-grade class, and that sometimes causes problems. Big Gloria is also in his class and they become friends, because of their size, and because they like each other. Mr. Salami, the teacher, has decided that the kids will make turkeys for Thanksgiving. Big Bob remarks that his family are vegetarians and Big Gloria decides to become one too. They tell Mr. Salami that they want to make Thanksgiving potatoes. The new twist on Thanksgiving and the ingenuity of these kids will bring a smile from readers. There is also a nice message about friendship. Part of the "Hello Reader!" series, Level 3. 1999 (orig.
