*A great way to encourage six to eight year-old children to engage in journal writing. *Shows that journal writing could assist with dealing with various emotions such as: anger, jealousy, disappointment, unexpected changes, happiness, joy, excitement, and others. *Attractive charcoal illustrations. *Appropriate storyline and lesson for second grade, and third grade, students.

Poor misunderstood Keena. I honestly felt sorry for her. Her voice was genuine and the pencil drawings were great! detailed and realistic. The mix-up is when Kenna incorrectly writes the date of her birthday down and the teacher brings a cake for the entire class to share, sings happy birthday and Keena's mother comes to the classroom and catches Keena in her lie. Good ending, nice relationship between teacher/students, brother/sister, mother/ daughter.

Keena is so real, you root for her despite her bad judgement. The pages turned quickly.

Another short chapter book that many second graders will appreciate. Keena is just beginning second grade, and looking forward to sharing a classroom with her best friend Eric. Then a letter comes in the mail stating that boys and girls will be in different classrooms, and the mix-up begins. Keena loves her class and her teacher, but in trying to be fancy lets her teacher believe that her birthday is the day after school starts. Then other events happen that Keena believes are out of her control, but really Keena is a force of nature. This is a funny book that I think many children can relate to ¿ they will feel like things are out of their control too!!

my 7 year old and I had in-depth conversations about honesty, friendship, expectations and navigating school because of Keena Ford's adventures!! I highly recommend for reading together
