Second Grade Rules, Amber Brown (A is for Amber; Easy-To-Read) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Second grade is almost as wonderful as Amber expected, but there's one problem: the rules. Most of them are easy for Amber, but she just can't manage to keep her desk clean. Even when Ms. Light tells them about Deskarina, the fairy who gives treats to kids with neat desks (a cousin of Dentalina, the tooth fairy), Amber has trouble.

But seeing other kids get treats while her desk is skipped over gets Frustrating&150just enough for her to take some action.

Following closely on the events in Get Ready for Second Grade, Amber Brown, kids and teachers will applaud this hilarious take on a universal September classroom issue.

Synopsis:

Halloween is one of Amber brown's favorite holidays, and this year she has come up with a fantastic costume. It's so perfect that she's keeping it a secret even from her best friend, Justin, no matter what he bribes her with. Amber can't wait to reveal the surprise and go trick-or-treating, but she's worried that her parents' arguing will put a damper on the holiday. But with pumpkin decorating, Halloween jokes, candy treats, and the greatest costume ever, this is going to be the perfect Halloween!

Synopsis:

Amber Brown thinks that second grae rules!  But when her teacher says desks have to be kept clean, Amber knows that is one rule she cannot follow.  She desperately wants the desk fairy, Deskarina, to visit her desk and leave a reward.  A messy desk never bothered Amber before, but now that a treat is involved, it does...

About the Author

Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in New York, Paula Danziger knew since second grade that she wanted to be a writer. Beginning her career as a teacher, Danziger taught at the junior high, high school, college levels. She received her Masters Degree in reading and during that time she wrote her first bestselling novel, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit. She returned to teaching, but the success of her book encouraged her to become a full-time writer. It was non-stop for Danziger since then. Among her titles are: the enormously popular Amber Brown books as well as Remember Me To Harold Square, The Divorce Express, and Can You Sue Your Parents For Malpractice?

Danziger received numerous honors, including: Parent's Choice Awards, International Reading Association - Children's Book Council Awards, a IRA-CBC Children's Choice Award and many nominations for state reading and library association awards.

Known as a flamboyantly funny and deeply honest writer and speaker, Paula Danziger knew how to relate to young readers at their level. She was vital, funny, and compassionate. She knew how kids felt, what made them laugh, what they wore, collected, read, and played with. From collecting novelty toys that would make any teacher cringe, to wearing jangly earrings, funky glasses and shoes covered with beads and sequins, Paula Danziger had a direct line into kids' hearts and funnybones. She will be missed always.


In Paula's memory, The Amber Brown Fund has been established to bring authors and illustrators to schools and libraries which otherwise could not afford them. Donations may be sent to The Amber Brown Fund/ SCBWI Museum of Children's Books, 8271 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048.
