Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Pre-K—With her signature starry headband and red boots and cape, Adventure Annie approaches her first day of kindergarten with gusto. In her enthusiasm, she proceeds to break the first two Kindergarten Gold Star Rules—"Respect our classroom and everything in it" and "Make good decisions"-by painting the classroom hamster cage and sneaking out to the jungle gym. She redeems herself, however, when she is asked to find two lost helpers. She keeps her teacher updated on her search with a walkie-talkie and using her inside voice (Gold Star Rule #3). Annie finally finds the missing youngsters with the principal and leads them back to class safely (avoiding the temptation of other adventures along the way), thus fulfilling the final Gold Star Rule: "Be kind and helpful to others." For her efforts, Annie receives the Gold Star Deputy badge for the day. Annie's good intentions, optimism, and curiosity make her a likable character and an excellent one to dispel fears for incoming kindergartners. Rendered in pencil and bright watercolors, the cheerful cartoon art, which occupies most of each page, will delight Annie's fans—Kim T. Ha, Elkridge Branch Library, MD

From Booklist

Full of confidence, Adventure Annie wears her personal superhero costume as she heads off to kindergarten. Her action-oriented style occasionally clashes with the “Gold Star Rules” of classroom behavior, but when the teacher needs someone to find two lost classmates, he sends Annie to the rescue. A former teacher, Buzzeo creates a believable classroom setting for her small but bold heroine. Washed with bright, cheerful watercolors, the cartoon-style pencil drawings magnify the story’s humor and high spirits. A fine addition to the Adventure Annie series, this picture book offers a dynamic alternative to stories about shy kids with kindergarten jitters. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan

Mr. Todd, the kindergarten teacher shares the Gold Star Rules for class but Annie has her own interpretation.

The illustrations convey the fun and craziness that is kindergarten, and makes this a delightful read-aloud for children.

Adventure Annie was just starting to" rise and shine" when her Mommy popped in her bedroom door to make sure she got up and prepared for her first day of kindergarten. She was full of questions as her Mommy put some Critter Fruit Snacks and some Circus Treat cookies in plastic bags to take to school. She wanted to know if she was going to have a "wild animal zoo adventure" or a "high-flying circus adventure." Mommy didn't think it was very likely, but she was sure that kindergarten would be an adventure itself.

Annie was all prepared for any adventure that came her way and to make sure she put everything from her zookeeper hat to her walkie-talkies in her backpack. When she arrived in Mr. Todd's kindergarten class she was surprised he didn't know who she was because as soon as she arrived she shouted, "Adventure Annie is here!" AND she had the letter A printed right on the front of her shirt. He wanted her to hang up her cape, but that was simply not going to happen. Mr. Todd explained the "Gold Star Rules" and told everyone that each day there was going to be a "Gold Star Deputy." Adventure Annie was determined to win the star, but did she have just a bit too much "adventure" in her to win the award?

Everyone is just going to fall in love with this darling, exuberant little kindergartner, Adventure Annie. This little hustling, bustling little girl will quickly bring to mind another little charmer named Ramona Quimby. She has a zest for life that will make the reader smile at her enthusiastic antics. She has no idea that she's not supposed to rush outside and play on the jungle gym while everyone else is nicely on task. If you liked Ramona, you are sure to quickly fall in love with little Annie Grace, better known as Adventure Annie!

Toni Buzzeo's has struck gold with her newest pint-size character in her latest book. "Adventure Annie Goes to Kindergarten".

Annie returns in vibrant colors thanks to illustrator Amy Wummer. The bright artwork coupled with Buzzeo's adventure hungry Annie, take on Kindergarten full steam ahead! Annie arrives with her adventure cape and attitude for her first day of school. With her backpack of extras and a positive attitude, Annie is ready for anything that kindergarten might bring her way.

Mr. Todd, the kindergarten teacher shares the Gold Star Rules for class but Annie has her own interpretation. Buzzeo hits a homerun as Annie creates her own adventures one after another trying to earn a Gold Star. As always, Annie finds a unique way to "save the day" and set the stage for her next adventure.

The duo of Buzzeo and Wummer have created a character that brings out the kindergartener in all of us! More please!
