School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3Nine brief chapters, sprinkled with just enough humor, describe Louise's attempts to carve out a unique place for herself in Mr. Shelby's kindergarten class. As she changes her name without warning, wishes for a loose tooth, overcomes fears of swimming and bullies, yearns to be first and best, and strives to do things differently, the child reveals feelings and concerns that many youngsters experience. A believable handling of familiar situations, coupled with what Louise learns about herself and others, makes this title a good addition for collections in need of beginning chapter books. Even children who might need some coaxing to read about kindergartners will giggle at the episodes and remember similar pitfalls and pleasures of beginning school. Simple black-and-white drawings appear throughout.Gloria E. Nottingham, Richmond Public Library, VA
