Overview

Posey is really nervous about starting first grade. Instead of getting walked to her classroom, her mom has to drop her off at the Kiss-and-Go Lane. Then she'll have to walk into school and face the Monster of the Blue Hall all by herself. Worst of all, she has to do it without the one thing that always makes her feel brave and special: the tutu that turns her into the Pink Princess. But when Posey inspires her new teacher to throw a first-day parade in which all the kids are invited to wear whatever makes them feel the most comfortable, first grade starts to look a lot more promising.

Posey will charm readers just graduating from easy-to-reads (and from kindergarten). Make reading sparkle with all of the Princess Posey chapter books!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Six-year-old Posey, in a sparkly pink tutu on the cover, will catch the attention of young emerging readers. Like Miss Lee's invitation, this new chapter book series will be warmly received by youngsters looking for something comfortable and familiar to begin with." — The Horn Book

"This is a sweet book, and children will relate to the child’s fears about her new experience and leaving her security tutu behind. There’s also a confidence-building ending in which the new first graders are encouraged to be true to themselves." — School Library Journal

"Greene’s simple sentences are distinguished by punchy dialogue and sentiments that do justice to a range of emotions, from frustration and nervousness to unadulterated glee. They should go a long way to easing the worries of readers embarking on a new stage in their school life." — Publisher's Weekly

This was her first foray into longer books after reading mostly Step Into Reading books. My daughter is not much of a "princess" girl but she is still a girlie girl, and she found Posey to be charming and cute. This book tells a sweet story of learning to adjust to a new situation in a way that made her comfortable. I found Posey to be a good role model in how she asked the teacher to allow the parade so all the nervous children would settle in. My daughter was asking for the next Posey book as soon as she finished this book! Highly recommended to all little girls!

My girls loved that these were cute easy books. They could read them in one sitting which is encouraging. They are pretty short but we enjoyed them. Good for an average 1st grader but my 3rd grader likes them too.

Dear Kids and Parents, Do you want to know the best fantasy book in the world? I am an eight year old girl and I love really hard challenging books! I love Princess Poesy books! I think you should read princess Poesy books. For example I love to read in my room because I like read to have my one quit time and it helps me read better. Princess Poesy books have really good juicy words. They help me imagine in my head. Furthermore, when I was reading one day I had so much quit time I read 60 minutes and I was proud of my shelf. These books are so good I don’t want to stop reading these books. As an illustration, I like her talent and how she says her words it helps me imagine because her words stand out to me. Finally overall I really enjoy reading Princess Poesy books .I rate this as two thumbs up .to end thank you for your time to listen to my powerful voice.

My grandaughter read this book in one day and she is only five! I think it was very good in that she could follow the story line and understand the content, however I wish I had known the book only had 29 pages before I shelled out 5 bucks for it. Does anyone know how you can determine the length of books before you buy?

My grandkids just started to get into the story and it was over! It's more like a phamplet then a book. MY E-READER SAID 29 PAGES! wasn't worth the $5.00 and change I ended up paying for it. Don't waste your money.
