Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
The spiral-bound School Smarts Planner features a dateless weekly planner that alternates with tips ("Locker Decorating 101"), recipes, jokes and inspirational phrases ("I can make my future bright!"). Other accoutrements: a sleeve on the cover to insert friends' photos, a flexible 6" ruler, stickers and bookmarks. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Modeled after the school planners often purchased for students by a school or PTA, this version is much livelier and more colorful. The cover is even full of clear plastic pockets to be filled with school photos. However, there really is not room to write homework assignments for six or seven class periods so this planner could best be used to encourage time management outside school. It is loaded with fun and useful tips and tricks, hard-to-spell vocabulary words like "secretary" and "conqueror," state capitals, proofreading symbols, words like hello and friend in multiple languages, recipes for snacks, and ideas for decorating a locker. There is a short address book in the back, several bright bookmarks and lots of perforated notes to tear out and send to friends. Games and quick thoughts—"Dare to be different," "Put your heart into all you do," "Speak up!"—encourage friendship, growth, and self confidence. There are a few fun quizzes and Q&A sections about tough issues like sharing homework with friends: "If the only way to keep this friendship is to cheat, it's not much of a friendship." This is not a library or classroom item, but a good way to bring a little organization into the daily life of a busy growing girl. 2004, Pleasant Company, Ages 10 to 15.
