Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Just Grace returns in her fourth outing, which features an environmental theme. When her class begins a unit on 'Going Green,' (according to Grace, this does not mean 'studying frogs' or 'dressing up as Irish leprechauns'), Grace's take-charge attitude and 'empathy powers' gain momentum, and she becomes a 'superhero of conservation.' Practical information is sprinkled throughout (Grace learns that conservation can also mean holding onto what's important). Sure to please Grace's fans. Ages 6 — 10. This interactive, oversize book pairs information about endangered species and their habitats with attention-grabbing details. Accompanying full-color photographs are panels, tabs and removable cards that enliven animal descriptions ('gharials have long, pointy snouts packed with teeth') along with reasons that each is endangered. In the 'Saving the turtles' section, lifting an image of a sea turtle reveals panels about their birthing habits. For all the showy visuals, the stark message is resounding: 'Can you imagine a world without gorillas, tigers, and polar bears?' Ages 8 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Grace can do a lot of things...but can she save the planet???? Or at the very least, can she help her best friend Mimi get her favorite stuffed animal back?

Lots of exciting things are happening to Grace and her friends. Most exciting of all, Mimi's older cousin Gwen is coming to stay with Mimi, and Miss Lois's class is GOING GREEN! For their "green" project, Grace and Mimi aim to inspire their friends and classmates to conserve plastic bottles. But a far more important issue is that Gwen has taken a strong liking to Mimi's favorite stuffed toy, Willoughby. Just Grace uses her empathy superpower to figure out ways to make her best friend feel better, and she makes a difference for the environment too. Yard sales, toy owls, decorated plastic water bottles, flaming onion rings, and a very entrepreneurial Sammy Stringer make this another winning entry in the JUST GRACE series.
