Hannah Sparkles: Hooray For the First Day of School
Hannah Sparkles and her best friend, Sunny Everbright, are ready for first grade. Their day starts as perfect as pom-poms...until Hannah and Sunny are seated far apart in the classroom. Even worse, Hannah is having trouble making new friends.
It’s going to take some extra thinking for Hannah to learn that sometimes being a good listener is the best way to be a good friend.
Perfect for fans of Fancy Nancy and Pinkalicious, Hannah Sparkles’s second story is sure to bring sparkly smiles to new readers who are just starting school too.
Hannah is starting first grade and excited about making friends. Only, every time she tries, it doesn't work out. Her excitement tends to get the best of her and no one wants to be her friends.
So, she's taught that the best way to make friends isn't to talk and show off, but rather to watch and to listen.
It's a fantastic lesson for kids. Making friends isn't easy, but the best friendships don't come from dominating the other people, they come from getting to know them.
The images are well done with bright colors and just the cutest little girl. A parent reading this will want to give Hannah a hug.
A kid reading it may want to be friends with her. Either way, they'll enjoy it immensely.
Final Verdict: An adorable story about friendship with a good lesson for any kid.
