Simon and Molly Plus Hester [NOOK Book]

Overview

Simon and Molly were the best of friends, just the two of them. Until Hester moved in. Hester doesn’t want to ride the two-wheeler, like they always do; she wants to make paper airplanes instead. And the toast Simon makes for her is too boring; she wants to add cinnamon sugar. Molly happily goes along with all of her changes, but Simon liked things the way they were before Hester moved in. With Hester around, will Molly still want to be his friend?

Overview

Simon and Molly were the best of friends, just the two of them. Until Hester moved in. Hester doesn’t want to ride the two-wheeler, like they always do; she wants to make paper airplanes instead. And the toast Simon makes for her is too boring; she wants to add cinnamon sugar. Molly happily goes along with all of her changes, but Simon liked things the way they were before Hester moved in. With Hester around, will Molly still want to be his friend?
Lisa Jahn-Clough once again captures the complexities of friendship. She deftly explores the children’s feelings of insecurity and exclusion, revealing both the hidden motives behind their actions and the keys to their reconciliation. Readers will discover that with a little understanding and compromise, while two is definitely better than one, three can be even more fun!

Simon and Molly are best friends who play together every day, but when Hester joins them Simon thinks that Molly doesn't like him anymore.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Simon and Molly Plus Hester by Lisa Jahn-Clough, the duo from My Friend and I and Missing Molly are peas in a pod. But the status quo gets overturned when Hester moves in and offers up a lot of new ideas for having fun; Simon soon comes to believe that his best buddy has been wooed away. The happy resolution reassures children that three needn't be a crowd. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Simon and Molly do everything together. "Molly lets Simon ride her two-wheeler," and "Simon makes Molly toast with butter." But everything changes when Hester moves into the neighborhood. She would rather make paper airplanes than ride the bike, and she likes her toast with cinnamon-sugar, not just plain. Molly wants to include her anyway, and Simon feels as if he is losing his best friend. Then, one day, he overhears Hester say that she doesn't know how to ride a bike, and Molly responds, "Simon can teach you-. [He] is the best rider in the whole world.-And he is my very best friend." Happily, he agrees to teach Hester how to ride if she will teach him how to make a paper airplane that will fly. The artwork is filled with rich, thick outdoor colors and is reminiscent of children's easel paintings. The characters exhibit a wide range of facial expressions from sheer joy to total dejection. Both story and illustrations capture a child's misgivings about change and being left out. This could be a good read-aloud at the start of the school year.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
