Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
"A Is for Amber" designates the series which takes place when the famous Amber Brown was younger and her parents were still together. In this adventure (perhaps her last; Ms. Danziger died in 2004), the seven-year-old Amber loves second grade and her unconventional teacher, Mrs. Light. She even likes the class rules till a new one pops up—all desks must be kept clean. Poor Amber, neatness is not her thing, until Mrs. Light tells the class about Deskarina, the Desk Fairy, who leaves treats for a neatly organized space. The lively story, Ambers' second-grade friends (including Justin, who now tells chicken jokes), and her amusing but realistically difficult struggle for neatness will undoubtedly resonate with beginning readers. What fun to see Amber, wearing at last her hard-earned blue ribbon from Deskarina! Tony Ross's wonderfully immediate ink and watercolor illustrations continue to capture the essence of Amber in all her untidy charm. Some of the best depict Amber's visualizations of the Desk Fairy and her Deskmobile, topped by the little girl's glowing pride when she wins the ribbon and then her rueful look as she sees her cluttered bulletin board at home. This latest, perfectly-pitched tale will appeal to beginning readers whether Amber is an old friend or this is a first encounter with the author's endearing creation. Paula Danziger will be missed. The title has been reissued a part of the "Penguin Young Readers" series and is designated a Level 3 and Guided Reading Level "K." The opening page contains a note to parents and educators about the series and tips for making best use of the book. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft

Gr 1-3 -Amber Brown loves second grade, and has no trouble adhering to her teacher Ms. Lighta€™s five simple rules. But, when a new rule, a€œDesks have to be kept cleana€ is suddenly added to the class list, Amber isna€™t so sure ita€™s one she can follow it in this title (Putnam, 2004) in Paula Danzigera€™s series for emerging readers. Dana Lubotsky brings this loveable, quirky character to life, giving Amber a voice well suited to the spirited second grader. Upbeat music and appropriate sound effects make this an enjoyable listening experience.-Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY
