Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Samantha S. Van Dorf is the new girl in school. Her family is wealthy, so the narrator, a fellow classmate, postulates that her middle initial stands for ``Snob.'' After all, she wears a fur coat and fancy hats, and rides in the back of a long car instead of on the school bus. However, she finds out that Samantha is actually a nice person when she attends her birthday party and gets a chance to know her. The short sentences and plentiful, lively, full-color illustrations make this story an appropriate selection for newly independent readers. An amusing look at jealousy turned to friendship.-Lesley McKinstry, Findlay-Hancock County Public Library, OH

This is a great book for early readers and has cute illustrations too. The story is excellent! Teaching children about how we can misjudge someone and how we might feel about sharing friends and accepting new people. Excellent book to use as a spring board for talking about feelings, friendships and getting to know people.
