This book is about a girl whose mom was a stay at home mom, but then she got a job and the girl was unhappy. I liked this book because it reminds me of my childhood when I would have to do chores around the house. This book’s reading levels are for children in first through third grade.

Girls life changed she didn't like it. Get for kids like 1st grade and good for change in the life is ok and it will all work out. ( )

The adjustment from having a stay at home mother to a working mother is a challenge for the young girl in this book. It is a terrible experience for her because her mom is not doing the same things anymore. Five years to eight year old children would enjoy reading this and a few will be able to relate to it as well. ( )

This book is about girl who talks about her mom and dad who aren't her parents. She explains why her parents aren't her parents. I like this book somewhat because it had a few good parts but the rest was confusing. I would use this book in my classroom because it would be something fun to read. This book would be good for second and third grade. ( )

This book is about a little girl getting used to a new schedule after her mom goes back to work. she is gaining more responsibility and she needs to do her part to help out. She has a meltdown and her family comes to a compromise to make things go a little smoother for her an her brother. This is a good book for k-2 I think it shows that doing chores and helping your parents is maybe and adjustment but growing up causes responsibly that we all need to tend to. ( )
