Jennifer's room tells the story of a young girl who goes on an amazing adventure without leaving her bedroom after she reads a book. The author starts the story off by Jennifer reading a book, but then her imagination takes over. She imagines 'pink elephants' and 'great palm trees' , that grow in the middle of her room. The author utilized ellipses to create anticipation for what was she was going to imagine next. The artwork that is depicted uses bright colors painted by watercolor, and really shows her imagination taking over her bedroom. The overall theme of the book is reading can take you on wild adventures, and it can fuel your imagination even when you aren't physically reading a book. ( )

Jennifer’s Room is a wonderfully written story about a little girl and her imaginary adventure that takes place in her room. I love how things began to change little by little. It all started when she dropped her picture book that was balanced on her favorite chair. From that moment on, everything began to change. Everything from her drawling of her best friend changing to her best blue pencil shivered, turned green, to her favorite chair changing into an old baggy elephant. This story is perfect to lighten the mood of students when they have had a long day. It is a light and funny story that will have the students intrigued to what is happening. Peter Utton did a wonderful job writing and illustrating this picture book. ( )

Jennifer is a girl with a wild imagination. Her pencil turns into a snake, her chair into an elephant, and she becomes a fairy. She enjoys letting her imagination run free. When her mom calls her for dinner, she stops imagining and everything is back to normal. I didn't like this book. The pictures aren't that good and there's no plot. ( )

A sort of fun story spun from a little girl's imagination. The reading level is simple, but I perceived that it made my son a little uncomfortable, him being extremely sensitive, so it's probably not a good recommendation for young children with sensitivities or bedtime/fear of dark/being alone issues.

Jennifer is in her room and dreams that her chair turns into an elephant and her room turns into treasure island. She has a great time until her mom calls her for dinner and then everything goes back to normal. ( )
