School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Titles in this series are designed to reflect the classroom experiences of young students. This installment describes Valentine's Day activities in Mrs. Jenkins's room. The children have learned the importance of including all their classmates so they work together to ensure that everyone, even their teacher, gets a special card. Interior illustrations by Nez approximate Wells's signature style. A pleasant story with appropriately challenging vocabulary that will make a suitable additional purchase for collections in need of easy-to-read offerings.-Shara Alpern, The Free Library of Philadelphia (c) Copyright 2010.
