Reviews

Just Grace returns in her fourth outing, which features an environmental theme. When her class begins a unit on "Going Green," (according to Grace, this does not mean "studying frogs" or "dressing up as Irish leprechauns"), Grace's take-charge attitude and "empathy powers" gain momentum, and she becomes a "superhero of conservation." Practical information is sprinkled throughout (Grace learns that conservation can also mean holding onto what's important). Sure to please Grace's fans. Ages 6-10. (Feb.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Gr 2-4-In this installment in the series, Grace and her friends are learning about recycling. Their teacher, Miss Lois, has challenged the third graders to work in groups and present a project on how to "go green" in some way. Many valuable ideas are presented, such as turning off lights, conserving water, and reusing and recycling. A subplot involves Grace's best friend's cousin coming for an extended stay and the trouble it causes. Narrated by Grace, the story is simple, yet informative and fun. Childlike drawings are interspersed throughout. This is an appealing book for early chapter-book readers. Fans of the series are sure to enjoy it, but it can stand on its own.-Michele Sealander, Hamburg School, NJ Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

With short, snappy sentences and lots of small black-and-white cartoons, the book features young grade-schoolers' realistic talks about feeling mad, jealous, and happy with classmates and family ("How to make a bad day worse").Grace is also concerned about pollution and what kids can do about it, and Harper offers specific suggestions, from recycling and decorating plastic water bottles to saving endangered red pandas, switching off the lights at home, and holding a yard sale. Instead of boring arithmatic, Grace wants exciting lessons about how to save the planet, and readers will want them too after finishing this enjoyable read.--Booklist Girls who are settling into chapter book series featuring Clementine and Judy Moody will love the fast pace and familiar school and family situations. Grace's amusing lists and headlines such as How to Make a Bad Day Worse and What I Did That Was Unusual will keep readers entertained, and Harper's sketches add interest and break up the text, leaving the new reader time to pause and smile.--Horn Book This is an appealing book for early chapter-book readers. Fans of the series are sure to enjoy it, but it can stand on its own.--School Library Journal A fun read for kids and adults.--BookPage --
