Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Any school kid who's ever been asked to tell a story on demand will be able to relate to poor Sarah. Her teacher has given her until tomorrow morning to prepare a story to tell to the class. Despite the fact that she thinks all night, Sarah leaves for school in the morning absolutely story-less. On her way to school Sarah is drawn into an adventure that turns out to be perfect for retelling to the class. This book is ideal for parents and teachers who want to emphasize to their learning partners that the best stories are those that are told with the voice of experience. But it's also just a darn good yarn, too.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Sarah must tell a story to her class and is desperate for an idea. As she walks to school, the incredible begins to happen. Urged by an ant, Sarah squeezes down a small opening and finds the queen ant ensconced on her throne demanding honey bread. Sarah's peanut butter and jelly sandwich is refused. Late for school, the girl rushes out of the anthill and meets a bee. Soon her hands are filled with honey. Reluctantly, the queen tries the peanut butter and honey; to her amazement, she is delighted. Sarah races to school with quite a story to tell. Aldridge's watercolors intensify the magic and humor of the narrative; they are perfectly in tune with Sarah's adventurous spirit. The pictures, combined with Harley's storytelling, will make children's imaginations soar.-Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY
