KIRKUS REVIEW

Posey is nervous about first grade. She’ll have to walk all the way down to the hall to Miss Lee’s class. Alone. It’s a long way from the Kiss-and-Go-Lane to the first-grade classroom, and the corridor seems especially long when the neighbor boys add to her anxiety by telling her tales about the snakes and blood-sucking monsters that lurk there. On top of everything else, Posey’s mom will not let her wear her favorite tutu costume to school. She loves being Princess Posey, the Pink Princess, but she has to wear school clothes to school, doesn’t she? Posey’s family supports the little girl and helps her make her transition to the big world of first grade. Emergent readers can be anxious as they make the transition from easy readers to early chapter books and, like Posey, can be overwhelmed by new challenges. Short sentences, a generous font, ample white space and Sisson’s charming, expressive black-and-white illustrations make this sweet story just right for them. First graders will be looking for more stories about Posey. (Fiction. 5-8)
