Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Monks
What's so funny about spelling bees, class picture day, and homework? Spend some time with Ricky Vargas and find out! Like many second graders, Ricky sometimes gets carried away with being funny, and creates a few mistakes along the way. Like when he makes a silly face and ruins the class photo or when he gets so focused on making jokes his class loses the spelling bee. Luckily for Ricky, his level of creativity is equal to his humor, as he finds imaginative solutions to fix all his blunders and gain forgiveness from his teacher and classmates. In this enjoyable three-chapter book, humorous stories are paired with playful black and white illustrations. A clear understandable storyline and sentence structure (without sacrificing the pace or friendly tone), a guided reading level of K and independent reading level of 2.4, makes this book highly accessible to a range of ages. Children will also enjoy the relatable subject matter, which can be used by teachers and parents to discuss the importance of learning from mistakes. This book would make a fun addition to many children's collections, including personal, public, and school libraries. Reviewer: Kathleen Monks
