Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-With a charming, missing-tooth smile, turquoise cowboy boots, and red pigtails that Pippi Longstocking would envy, Annie McRae dances through her day loved by the adults around her. Her family and teachers praise her constantly with a chant: "Hip, hip, hooray for Annie McRae!" Then one day, her parents and teacher are preoccupied and unresponsive, so the child toots her own horn. She shouts: "Hip, hip, hooray for Annie McRae!" Crackling text that begs to be read aloud is matched with colorful and inviting illustrations. Bright happy pictures, a winning refrain, and a charismatic heroine will make this book a "trail-blazin', whip-snappin'" storytime choice.-Kate McLean, DeKalb County Public Library, Tucker, GA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Annie McRae is used to everyone cheering when she does something good, until one day everyone is too busy to cheer and she finds that maybe she can be her own best cheerleader. With a raucous "Howdy!" and a click of her turquoise cowboy boots, Annie McRae enters the room. This gap-toothed, redhead skips through her day receiving praise for everything from pouring her cereal carefully to practicing the piano until one day she wakes up to find that even though she is just as careful with her corn pops and just as diligent with her practicing, no one seems to have the time to cheer. Discouraged Annie sits down to cry, but when she misses the attention the next morning as well, she decides that she can cheer for herself. The western-inspired drawings, framed in coils of rope once she's been roped in, add a fun element to an otherwise suspicious storyline. The lesson is clear, but it is unlikely that an eight-year-old would be able to learn it by herself overnight and what's with those suddenly inattentive grown-ups, anyway? (Picture book. 2-5)

Read an Excerpt

Howdy, Mom!" called eight-year-old Annie McRae as she threw off her covers and jumped out of bed. "Howdy, Chestnut," she said to her stuffed horse. Mom smiled from the doorway while Annie carried Chestnut to his favorite spot by the window so she could make her bed.

"I love the way you take care of your room," said Mom, and then she cheered as she always did, "Hip, hip, hooray for Annie McRae!

    I Also Recommend:

    My third graders truly enjoyed this book.

    We read Hip, Hip, Hooray in preparation for a visit to our school from Brad Wilcox. It sounded just like Brad, a personal acquaintance for many years. Although I had seen many of his books on the market, this is the first time I had purchased one. Of course, it is best when Brad reads it as he did during our assembly.

    Hip, Hip, Hooray for a Great Picture Book!

    This is one of those picture books that reaches out, grabs you, and doesn't let you go. Annie is wonderful--a positive and strong female main character and we can't get too many of those. The western theme and repeatable phrases make the book fun to read aloud. The children love to chime in. The illustrations are great--a real original contribution and not just the same old thing you see a million time. The 'lesson' of the book is obvious, but not overpowering. I loved it. Hip, hip, hooray for this great new children's book!

    Everyone whould have this book in their collection! I heard the author read the book himself and was able to handle the author's copy at the reading before it even came out to the public. It is a great book about a little girl finding out that she doesn't need to rely on others to make her happy and feel good about herself! (A wonderful lesson for kids - and adults - to learn) The illustrations are fantastic and there is added fun for all in them...find the hidden horseshoes. Great for all ages!

    Adorable book!

    This book is excellent on many levels. First the illustrations are bright and cheerful and set a sweet tone for the book. There is a lot to look at in every picture, and the hidden horseshoes are so fun for my children. The story is one every child can relate to, and one that teaches a great lesson without being preachy. This is a book you would want to have in your home or your classroom.
