Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The most recent book in Cohen's tales of a first-grade class finds the children preparing for Thanksgiving vacation. All the excitement of the holiday amplifies the usual bids for attention in the classroom. But before the day is over, the children once more become a cohesive group, and hurt feelings are sootheduntil the next dilemma. Cohen again successfully portrays a busy classroom, where pleasures and problems overlap in a steady stream of activity. Her children are believableif somewhat wiseas they resolve their differences. Hoban's colorful illustrations capture their expressions of innocence and sincerity. Ages 5-8. (August)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 Anna Maria is bossing the first-grade class around again. This time she writes a play and tells every one what to say and do until nobody wants to be in it at all. Then the class makes a giant turkey out of a box and paper bags. Anna Maria wants to wear it first, but the others ignore her until she is willing to let Louie wear it. The story jumps from Anna Maria's play to making the turkey to making cookies to making a mural, etc. The action is quick and a little frantic, with nothing devel oped in depth. The softly colored pic tures are appealing, humorous, and de pict a true-to-life first-grade classroom. They're stronger than the slight sto ry. Mary Jane Kibby, Eggertsville- Snyder Library, N.Y.
