Gr 1-3-Two character-education lessons incorporated into stories. In Friend, Jacob crashes into Seth's toy dump truck while the two are racing their bikes and Seth is furious. Then, while visiting his grandmother, he accidentally breaks her lamp. She is not angry with him, and he realizes the importance of forgiveness, which leads him to Jacob's house seeking to renew their friendship. In the next book, Jason is asked to mail invitations to his grandmother's birthday party but on his way to the post office, he loses one down the drain grate. When Grandma's best friend does not show up on the day of the party, Jason realizes what happened and runs to Mrs. Wang's and asks her to come. Color cartoons fill the pages and enhance the mood of the texts. Young readers will relate to the simple plots, which will generate discussion.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

CHAPTER 1

Mama said, "Who's responsible enough to do an important job for me?"


"Me," said Jason before Sam or Tyler could answer.

"Take these invitations to the mailbox right away," said Mama. "They're for Grandma's birthday party, and they have to be picked up today."

Jason took the invitations and started down the street. Carson called from the park, "Jason, come fly my new eagle kite."


"Can't," said Jason. "I'm doing an important errand."

"Aw, come on, I need some help," Carson begged.

"Well, okay." Jason set the envelopes on the grass and ran to see the kite.

Jason and Carson flew the kite till Jason saw the mail truck turn the corner. "Gotta go," he said, running to get the envelopes.

In his rush to meet the truck, Jason tripped on the curb. Slide went one white envelope, right down the drain grate! Jason could see it bobbing on the water.


Jason gasped. Oh, no! he thought. Mama said they're important! But now the invitation was gone, and there was no way to reach it.
