Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Three books that suggest ways to get involved at school: join a drama or theater club, participate in a music group such as a choir or band, or volunteer for a service group. Kenney offers advice for bringing in new members, such as making posters, developing a club logo, wearing club shirts, or carrying bags advertising the group. Ideas for games to learn about other club members are included. Fundraisers such as a gift-basket raffle, selling handmade cards, or having a garage sale or car wash are suggested. Staged full-color photos show students of various ages and adults actively participating in the club by helping out, practicing an instrument, or acting in a play. End pages include a glossary of the bolded words found in the texts and an unnecessary index. Since schools organize clubs differently, these books give only overviews of possibilities, and the topics aren't often sought after or requested—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
