It's hard to imagine any third graders who wouldn't enjoy this story since it focuses on having substitutes instead of a regular teacher.
When the third grade's teacher, Ms. Shelby-Ortiz has an accident and can't teach, the students get to experience two substitutes whose teaching and classroom management styles couldn't be more different. Willow isn't assertive enough, and best friends Nikki and Deja watch in shock as their classmates misbehave, even going so far as to pin a "Kick Me! When he leaves, the class gets another sub.

The sixth installment of a chapter book series featuring African American characters. Even with the diversity movement in children's books, chapter books always a second cousin have been primarily left out. This is a wonderful book on the ups and downs of friendship that will keep the interest of early readers, especially girls who have a close BFF like Nikki or Deja.
Like all kids learning how to be friends, Nikki and Deja have their moments of bossiness, selfishness, and envy -- one of the girls is just too good at jacks.
And when a new girl moves into the neighborhood they both decide they don't like her and form a club to exclude her. Author Karen English does a great job of showing these tricky friendship dynamics, and throws in good messages about the dangers of cliques and the importance of saying you're sorry -- all in an easy-to-read format with expressive illustrations that help ease new readers into the chapter book format.
Families can talk about friendship. Why can cliques send the wrong message about friendship? What is the difference between friendship and cliques?
