The story is a bit silly, but with a positive message in the end. My Kindergartner loves the story and the illustrations.

Format: Hardcover
I really hope the other books in this series are different from this one. This follows a class as they set up for a science fair. The main character is Ima Kindanozee. And she is very nozy.

I suppose this book is trying to be fun, with Ima asking questions about the various projects. But she inevitably destroys her class mates work, and the teacher does nothing but say "My my, that project (insert here anything but a corrective or administrative remark about boundaries, or even acknowledging the obvious hard work Ima just destroyed)."

And this is what makes me really not like this book at all. Ima keeps on destroying things. The artist shows anger from the other kids at lost projects, or even fear as one project shoots out the window, and this kid is left to keep on ruining others day and the teacher just tells some students with ruined work that their projects could use some finishing touches.

At the end, Ima is seemingly congratulated as she walks around with the principle asking more questions about the projects. I suppose this part is trying to show Imas' contribution to the fair, her curiosity and good observations about what each of the other projects do, or did.
