Illus in full color Samantha wears a fur coat and a designer hat She s got a limousine, an indoor pool, and a mom who looks like a movie star What a snob That s what the narrator of this story thinks Then she discovers that she and Samantha have a lot in common including their squirt gun rings
A good book about not judging a book by its cover, and also looking at jealousy.
This is a good book about making friends, stereotypes, and the axiom of judging a book by its cover. It was good for starting a discussion with our girls about being nice and friendly to new kids in their class, no matter what they look like.
Samantha is the new girl in class. When she starts hanging around the narrator's friends and she does not like it one bit, especially when they are all invited to Samantha's birthday party, and her friends want to go! But, Samantha might not be the snob she seems. This easy reader, one partFancy Nancyand one partJunie B. Jones , is lots of fun for 1st and 2nd Grade readers. ~Caroline See if it's on the shelf! catalogls/search~S1?/ts-
This is a fun book for children to read. I would use this book to talk about not judging a book by its cover. Many students need a friendly reminder that just because someone looks different does not mean you may not have some things in common with them.
Cute early reader.
this is a beautiful book and for 1st graders
I'd give it 2.5 stars. It was okay to read and the kids seemed to think it was okay also.Not horrible, not wonderful. Good message.
