Product description

Review

"Ink sketches filled in with splashy watercolors depict a worried, increasingly frazzled Haley as she copes with new challenges in a busy, active classroom. An important book for kids making a pretty tough transition." ―Booklist

"Perfect as a read-aloud...a spot-on depiction of teachers helping kids through rough patches." ―School Library Journal

"Rodman handles the turmoil of school transitions with realism and humor. A good jumping-off book for discussions about differences and change." ―Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

"Rodman's witty take on the harsh realities of first grade, as perceived by those in the trenches, will tickle readers' funny bones.... For young readers approaching this or any other significant transition with trepidation, Rodman's humorous tale serves as a gentle reminder to search for the silver lining." ―Kirkus Reviews
