Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
America's favorite first graders are back. Cohen and Hoban have collaborated on more than 15 tales of these loveable, likeable and consistently realistic kids, who here enjoy a year-end picnic at the beach. As in each of the adventures, each child has a specific way of handling any crisis or opportunity that crops up. Anna Maria forgets her lunch and bathing suit so the class pitches in to help her find something to eat and wear. They enjoy all the simple beach pleasures of sand and surf as well as reminisce with their beloved teacher about their experiences together. When they express worries about second grade, their teacher reassures them, saying ``I've never forgotten a single one of my First Graders!'' Readers will agree that this class is unforgettable, but will want to know: When does second grade begin? Ages 5-up. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- After spending some 25 ``literary years'' in the first grade, Jim, Paula, Anna Marie, and their classmates will now move on to second grade. In this title Cohen's familiar and popular group of multi-ethnic students reminisce about past experiences and look forward with both anticipation and trepidation to second grade as they embark on an end-of-the-year class trip to the beach. Both the friendship between the students and their closeness to their teacher is evident without being overstated. While nothing particularly dramatic or comic takes place in the story, it does address seemingly little things such as fear of the water and moving on to the next grade that can be quite traumatic to children. Cohen confronts childhood issues in a manner that is reassuring to her audience. Hoban's bright watercolor paintings match the written material. --Tom S. Hurlburt, Minneapolis Public Library
