Ida B

ISBN: 9788496517011


Chapter One

"Ida B," Mama said to me on one of those days that start right and just keep heading toward perfect until you go to sleep, "when you're done with the dishes, you can go play. Daddy and I are going to be working till dinner."

"Yes, ma'am," I said back, but I said it like this, "Yes, may-uhm!" because I couldn't wait to get on with my business. I could already hear the brook calling to me through the back door screen. "C'mon out and play, Ida B. Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up." I had three places I wanted to visit, six things I wanted to make, and two conversations I hoped to have before dinnertime.

Mama was washing, Daddy was drying, and I was putting away the dishes from lunch. And I knew that the moment I set the last pan in its place, I was free. But the way those two were chatting and laughing and acting like we had till next week to finish up, I could see it was going to be a while.

My insides started itching and my feet started hopping, one then the other, because they were ten minutes past being ready to go. So I decided to speed things up a bit.

Daddy'd hand me a dish, I'd sprint to the cupboard and put it away, race back again, and put my hand out for the next one, with my right foot tap, tap, tapping the seconds that were tickingby.

"Hold your horses, Ida B," Daddy told me. "There's plenty of time to do whatever you're planning." And he passed me a plate, slow and easy.

Well, that stopped me in my tracks. Because what Daddy said might have seemed all right to him, but it was sitting about two miles beyond wrong with me. I wasn't going to be able to put away another tiny teaspoon till I set things straight.

"Daddy," I said, and I waited till he was looking at me before I went on.

"Yes, Ida B," he answered, turning toward me.

And staring right into his eyeballs I told him, "There is never enough time for fun."

Daddy's eyes opened wide, and for a half second I wondered if I was in for something close to trouble. But then the two ends of his mouth turned up, just a little.

"Ida B," he told the ceiling while he shook his head.

"Hmmmmm," Mama said, like a smile would sound if it could.

And as soon as Daddy handed me the big frying pan, I set it in the drawer next to the oven, and I was on my way.

"Come on, Rufus," I called to Daddy's old floppy-eared dog, who was napping under the table. "You can come, too, so you'll have some company."

Now, a school of goldfish could go swimming in the pool of drool that dog makes while he's sleeping. But as soon as he heard his name and saw me heading for outside he jumped up, cleaned up the extra slobber around his mouth, and in two and one-half seconds' time, he was waiting for me at the back door.

    You should really read this book

    This was an amazing book with a powerful lesson. The story was realistic and you could apply it to situations in your own life. Ida B was a hilarious character, and I enjoyed every page of this book.

    Ida B…and her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World

    Have you ever had an imaginary fiend? One that will always be with you, always is there to talk too, and always on your side? The main character in the story, Ida B, has many imaginary friends, but they aren’t your typical imaginary friends. Ida B’s imaginary friends are trees, bushes, and streams that live in his backyard. This book is a perfect choice for young readers. Not only is it easy to read but also it captures the reader’s attention quickly. I’m usually not the type to finish a book or even read it, but this book grabbed my attention like no other.

    This book doesn’t have much suspense, but it does have a lot of drama. Ida B had a life you could only dream of, her life goes from perfect to horrible in a matter of a month. Ida B is home schooled until her mother starts to get sick. Her mother getting sick ruins the atmosphere of their perfect household. The sickness effects of course Ida B, her dad, their dog, and the ability to do things they used to do. It really makes you realize how something so good can turn to so horrible in a flash.

    The characters in this book are just what you would imagine. The father is the leader of the family, strict, protective, and wise, while the mother, is more on the calmer and nicer side. Ida B is the all around playful nine year old as people would expect. She likes to go outside, get dirty and be adventurous. Even though she is a girl she acts more boyish than a normal girl would act. She doesn’t have any real friends but the trees and bushes in her backyard because she is home schooled. In her extra time she likes to go outside and talk to them and predict what they would say back to her. You might say she has a huge imagination.
    The plot is very intense. The conflict is man vs himself. One day Ida B is running around and having fun and the next day she has to go back to public school, which she hates. Not only does she have to go back to public school but also she has to come home to a sick mother and a clueless father. All this stress has really gotten to Ida B. She refuses to make friends at school and even look like she is enjoying herself. She takes all her anger out on her imaginary friends ( the trees and bushes) and soon has no one to talk to.

    I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books with drama. This book has very happy parts and very sad parts. I have to say, its probably one of the best books a young reader could read. I’ve enjoyed reading this book and I’m sure you will too.

    What will happen when her whole life changes!

    Chandler Scoco 11/30/06 Ida B Living in a peaceful orchard among talking apples trees, chattering rivers, and old trees was Ida B Applewood. Everything changed when her mother got cancer, and there was no way her mother could keep home schooling Ida B in that condition. So it was time to go to the big elementary school. Ida B¿s father works in the orchard every day and her mother would teach Ida B. One day her father tells her that they have to sell part of their orchard, which means cutting down some of the trees. The trees that had been her only friends for her whole life. After all of this happened Ida B had a major attitude change. Since her mother was much to tired to talk to and father was to busy outside she learned to be alone. Her big heart got smaller and turned to stone and she no longer chatted with the river or the apple trees. Ida B. was now Ida and she would talk to no one. Ida¿s new teacher Mrs. W. tried to talk everyday she gave Ida books, and secretly Ida enjoyed them, secretly Ida wanted to talk. Will Ida¿s heart break free or will it stay a cold somber stone. Katherine Hannigan¿s Ida B published by Greenwillow Books, 2004 is a book great for kids eight through eleven. This story will capture you into the midst of the thoughts and actions of a young and changing fourth grader.

    Not Bad

    This book wasn't my favorite, and was not in my top 10, or 15. I did like how she could talk to trees, but felt the book was slow and dragged on.

    Ida b. Whitneys review

    Ida has a lot of ups and downs like being hoomeschooled and going to public school. I feel lkke her sometimes especily when shes at recess and she says no whenever she gets asked to play she doesnt really follow the crwod shes indapendant thats only becase she dosent like public school. The hardest time she had was when her mom had cancer and lost her hair and would just lay in bed. Ida B. Missed her mom reading to her and all the other things she did for her. Another reason she didnt like public school was because they did not call her Ida B. The teacher said " this is 3rd grade we dont go by nicknames" or something like that. It kept me feeling her pain like i was her. I felt like i was her doing everything she did. Like I was liveing her life. I enjoyed this book so much i hope u do to! Best wishes : Whitney L.

    Wonderfully Written

    This is the world through the eyes of a young girl, happy as a lark until an unfortunate event. This tells of how she tries to deal with her new situation, and what she learns on the way. Funny at times, sad other times, but beautifully portrayed characterization.
