Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is pretty scary going off to summer day camp by yourself. Anna is afraid that she won't make any friends. To bring her luck she puts her lucky penny from grandpa in her pocket. Anna sits alone on the bus, but is soon joined by Marie. Anna and Marie share information and learn on arrival at camp that they are in different groups, but they meet up at lunchtime. The day is full of fun, adventures, and new friends. When Anna gets home she finds her lucky penny on the doorstep. She hadn't needed it after all. An upbeat and contemporary story that may help kids with the jitters relax a little before trying something new. A "Bank Street Ready-To-Read" Level 1 book.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 Simple stories with large, easy-to-read type and texts. In Mr. Big Brother, Eli is excited because his mom is going to have a baby. Tired of being the youngest in the family, he can't wait for the new babe to arrive so that he and his older brother, John, can have all sorts of exciting adventures with him. But the infant turns out to be a girl. The disappointed sibling finally accepts his new sister, providing a neat, satisfying conclusion. My First Day at Camp is narrated by Anna, who is eager, though a bit apprehensive about going to a day camp where she knows no one. By the time she gets home, however, she can't wait to return. Both stories are illustrated with colorful, engaging pictures on every page. The simple plots move quickly toward the predictable conclusions, and the situations presented reflect common childhood experiences. As fare for beginning readers, these are serviceable selections.
