Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A good choice for readers new to chapter books . . and second grade.

Like the black-and-white illustrations, this gentle read is warm and smooth around the edges.

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Emily puts a great deal of thought into where she's going to sit on the bus. So discombobulated is she by the sudden appearance of a new, smaller vehicle one morning that she forgets to grab her lunch bag when she's getting off. When she gets to school and realizes her mistake, classmate Vincetta Louise sends her into an unnecessary panic over what will happen. Emily's irritation with the spunky girl begins to fade, though, when she helps Emily out of a sticky spot and shares her talent for drawing. The text provides a solid bridge from beginning readers to chapter books. Like the black-and-white illustrations, this gentle read is warm and smooth around the edges. This title won't be a hot ticket, but it will find its audience in larger collections.-Adrienne Furness, Webster Public Library, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
