Cinderella Smith: The More the Merrierby Stephanie Barden
Synopses & Reviews
In Stephanie Bardens The More the Merrier, middle-grade readers will root for Cinderella Smith the same way they do for Junie B. Jones, Judy Moody, and Clementine.
Cinderella takes on mean girls in the second book in the Cinderella Smith series. A clique has formed in her third-grade class, and they dont want Cinderella in the group. Cinderella and her best friend, Erin, try to figure out what to do about the popular girls while making time to study for the big spelling bee.
Parents will appreciate the way the chapter book takes on the serious subject of bullying with a light touch, while emphasizing the importance of having true friends. The book also shows that studying pays off.
Engaging illustrations by Caldecott Honor Award winner Diane Goode bring Cinderella to life.
Aspelling bee has Cinderella and her classmates studying up a storm! Whoever wins first place gets to pick the theme of the class party. With lots of ideas floating around, Cinderella and her best friend, Erin, team up to study and win!
Speaking of spelling, Rosemary T. has been especially m-e-a-n lately. Cinderella decides to give her onetime friend the silent treatment. But Aunt Flora tells Cinderella it's best to talk through her problems with Rosemary. Alas! Will Cinderella be able to say, and spell, the words she needs to stand up to the class bully and win the contest?
