Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3Marta is a collector...of keys, paper clips, gum wrappers, and magnets. When she moves to a new neighborhood, she uses her magnet collection to make friends and to help her older sister's best friend retrieve a key that has fallen through a sidewalk grate. Directions are included for making a refrigerator magnet. Large, understated, but realistic colored-pencil drawings depict attractive multiethnic youngsters. A pleasant but slight story about fitting in that could also be used to introduce a unit on magnetism.Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
