I liked this book for a few reasons. A highlight of this book was the descriptive language and word choice. The language in the book helped to create strong imagery. For example “That night Clyde dreamed about cafeteria lines miles long where you had to carry your tray up hills and over mountains, across rivers and down through valleys.” is a phrase that creates a clear picture in the mind of the reader. I also liked that the overall plot of this book is easy for children to relate to. Upon entering school, many children feel nervous about their new routines and the staff members they will have to interact with. Children sometimes judge people based on what others say before getting to know the person themselves. This is what happened with Clyde and the lunch ladies. Clyde had a negative impression of the lunch ladies because of what his older brother and other students said about them. However, once the lunch ladies helped Clyde and his new friend Rosemary he realized what everyone said about them was incorrect. The main idea of this story is not to make assumptions about people before you meet them. In the story Clyde had negative opinions on the school lunch ladies before he even met them. However after he met them he realized how nice they were and that he was wrong to make judgments about them before getting to know them. ( )

I fell in love with this book. Many children have a fear of their first day of school because of things they hear from their older siblings or cousins. I know I experienced it once before. Clyde was so brave in school that he forgot about his worried and made a new friend name Rose Mary. This book showed me that everyone needs a friend at some point of their lives. ( )

Clyde was nervous about his first day at school, especially lunch time in the cafeteria. His older brother told him if he would spill his food or be too slow others would make fun of him. So, Clyde practiced carrying a tray of food. On the first day of school at lunch time, someone did spill food, but it was not Clyde. It was Gloria. Clyde helped Gloria pick up the spilled food, and the two become friends. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0316515868, Paperback)

"Mystery goosh" is a term we can all associate with some cafeteria or other. In Lunch Bunnies, it describes the cafeteria that Clyde, a first grader on his first day of school, must face. He has heard about the dreaded gruel and tyrannical lunchroom staff from his older brother. Rising above his fears, Clyde does fine in the lunchroom and even has the opportunity to share his strength with a classmate, Rosemary, who slips in a puddle of juice and goes flying. (Ages 4 to 8)
