Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Abby wants a job, but she's not alone. All third graders have to be community helpers for a month. With very little time to spare, Abby discovers that Sydney plans to volunteer with Katie. But she had counted on her best friend to help her decide what to do! Sydney and Katie will visit Evergreen Nursing Home twice a week. Dakota's going to help their teacher, Mr. Kim. Alexis, Robby, and Noah will pick up trash in the park. All the good jobs seem to be taken. The weekend arrives, and Abby has to scramble around to find something by Monday. It's lucky, indeed, that she and Gram head to the library on Saturday. It's not too long before Abby realizes that Mrs. Mackenzie badly needs assistance. When Abby offers to help, the librarian delightedly agrees. Volunteering at the library turns out to be meaningful, sometimes tasty, and always fun—so much so that Dakota, Sydney, and Abby form "The Book Bunch" to continue their good work way past the month required. While young readers will appreciate the story, adults may wonder why it is not more appropriately titled to reflect the book's message about friendship and volunteering. Reviewer: Bonita Herold
