Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
It is Discovery Week at Zigzag School and the students who attend the school's Afternoon Center will be taking an after-school trip to the Discovery Museum on Thursday. To prepare for this school trip everyone has to discover new things. Anything that they learn or see for the first time counts as a discovery. The problem is that Destiny doesn't make any discoveries. The other kids are discovering new words and how things work but Destiny can't seem to make any discoveries of her own. In an effort to keep up with the other kids, Destiny tells a lie. It's not just any lie; it is a whopper of a lie. Of course, she realizes that it is a whopper and she knows that she needs to tell the truth, but the longer that it goes, the more difficult telling the truth becomes. With the help of an understanding adult, Destiny discovers that it's easy to tell the truth and her friends soon learn that, too. This positive and uplifting story highlights some of the struggles that younger kids commonly have and it teaches them the value of honesty. The "Zigzag Kids" will surely become another popular series written for emerging readers by the award winning author Patricia Reilly Giff. Reviewer: Denise Daley
