From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
K-Gr 1-Amanda Pig is looking forward to first grade. She explains her excitement to her friend Lollipop: "We don't have to take naps and we get to play on the big playground and have real desks and jobs and homework. And we'll know how to read!" Unfortunately, Amanda is disappointed when she chooses her first book at school and discovers that she knows only one word. As the little pig learns the routine of a busy first grader with important jobs, she adds new vocabulary to the classroom "Word Wall." Somehow, reading that first book is now exciting and not so daunting. Amanda and her friends glow in a series of soft colored pencil and watercolor illustrations. While she voices the fears of a young child, her confidence grows as she endures losing her way in the halls and facing down the big second graders on the playground. While intended for independent reading, the message of perseverance in the face of new experiences is one that may also be shared aloud.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
