Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Mr. Hopper's class is planning for Family Night, and Luna suggests a Midnight Circus, a celebration perfectly attuned to her own passion for planets and stars. Instead, her classmates embrace the idea of a traditional circus, dividing into groups of lions, tigers, and bears, while Luna grows even more single-minded in her celestial fascination. As a new student, she has experienced some anxiety; now her adjustment is further compromised as classmates are confused by her obsession. When the second graders are forced to make a sudden program change, Mr. Hopper rallies the children around Luna's creative idea to bring the Midnight Circus to Room 75. On Family Night Luna is beaming, her sense of validation and acceptance reflected back to her wise and gentle teacher. By clearly evoking the discomfort and quirky behavior of the new kid in class, this story offers great discussion possibilities. It is a typical leveled reader with short sentences and chapters and an ample number of engaging cartoon drawings. However, the character development and opportunity for inferential thinking make it more substantial than many books of this type.–Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. In a nice take on the outsider story, this lively chapter book in the I Can Read! series uses a classroom setting to open up ideas not only about the new kid who is different and interesting but also about science and language. When Luna suggests that the class do a show about the night sky for Family Night, all the kids look at her as if she were "the new kid from outer space." But the wonderful teacher quietly supports her idea, and the classroom performance with stars in a midnight circus proves a great success. The puns are part of the fun, and Carter's colorful illustrations show the classroom play with the best teacher there in the background. Pair this with Kenah's The Best Seat in Second Grade (2005).

My daughter, in second grade, is receiving supplemental reading help and alot of the leveled readers in Scholastic book orders are just way to difficult for her right now. Or they are too "babyish" in content. These books are perfect for her: they are chapter books, they have repetitive words for lots of practice, and they are well-written stories that aren't overwhelming in vocabulary or sentence structure. I hope the auther continues to write more!

well written and easily relatable, my son and I both love these books! Each story is about a different child in the classroom and their stories are both a life lesson and an enjoyable tale.

My daughter liked reading about the circus. She said she plans on reading the book several times before the summer is over.

I liked Luna's idea about a midnight circus! I liked that Luna believed in herself and I liked how this story ended!

This book was easy enough for my 6 year old (almost 7) to read the night before her first day in second grade. It is a sweet, encouraging story about being yourself and encouraging the differences in others.
