Overview

Grace has lots of new and exciting things to share in the latest addition to the Just Grace series! There's a new crossing guard in town named Marie who needs a bit of help making friends, a fun substitute teacher for Miss Lois, and most exciting, Grace and Mimi are going to have their own table at the craft fair! They are going to make lots of crafts to sell—and hopefully save up enough money to go to the county fair. There is one small problem, though—Mimi is a sewing natural, but when it comes to crafting, Grace doesn't know what to make. Leave it to Grace to come up with a great idea for the fair that is a big success, and even helps the new crossing guard find a friend.

Children's Literature - Linda Sweitzer
Just Grace is itching to get to the county fair again this year; she’s had her eye on winning a rainbow-tailed Cozy Kangaroo—the best stuffed toy ever. Her best friend Mimi also hopes of getting one of those colorfully, prized stuffed marsupials; but to get one, they both will have to raise their own spending money. Mimi explodes with excitement when she tells Just Grace that they can make and sell their own crafts at a craft fair being held to raise money for field trips for students at Mimi’s brother’s school. Just Grace isn’t excited about the idea until she learns they will get half the money they bring in. Time’s a wasting, and they will have to work hard and fast because the craft fair is the following week. Uh, just one problem, as Just Grace sees it; she is not “crafty” at making things. When she and Mimi meet Marie, the new crossing guard for their school, and learn through Just Grace’s super power of empathy that Marie has no family or friends in town, Just Grace gets “crafty” to find a friend for her. In this twelfth book of the “Just Grace” series, things continue to run at a fast pace. There is a new awesome substitute teacher, Miss Summers, who has them work on a creative writing project; and Just Grace fears that she might like Robert Walters (one of the class’s naughty kids). YUK! The text, combined with her simple comic illustrations, makes this series great for girls and boys. Reviewer: Linda Sweitzer; Ages 6 to 9.
