Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Words and writing are an exciting part of the story in this Step into Reading book about Sara, who keeps a diary, writes a note, makes a list, draws a map, and chalks clues on the sidewalk as she plans a surprise for her friends. The surprise is for readers, too, as tension builds to the climax. “What is that key?” one kid asks. “Wait and see!” Sara answers. The casual, rhyming text has fun with the sound of words as well as their meaning, and the colorful, relaxed pictures, in thick line and watercolor, add to the celebration of reading and writing—not as a duty, but as play. Grades 1-2. --Hazel Rochman

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cute, 3 yr old daughter wanted it as a follow up to "Silly Sara" as it is her name. We parents do not think it is as catchy and cute as "Silly" but daughter likes it. A little confusing until you read it the tenth or so time - the plot is confusing and the idea does not translate as smoothly as it could. Still wonderful simple illustrations and we see familiar characters. Not as good for phonic rhyming as some others but the element of surprise is what keeps the attention.
