Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Neil is the only child in Mrs. Connor's class who doesn't look forward to Valentine's Day. He emphatically declares that he gets too many frilly, pink valentines, and he doesn't want any more. When the day comes, his classmates happily exchange cards, and though Neil claims that he feels great, he really doesn't. He is isolated and unhappy until he arrives home where a surprise is waiting. Charming cartoon illustrations augment the lighthearted tone. This slight story is predictable but pleasant, and the vocabulary is well suited to beginning readers.

More About the Author

Christopher-Award winning author Margaret McNamara has written more than two dozen books for young readers, among them the popular Fairy Bell Sisters chapter books and the Robin Hill School series for early readers. Many of the ideas for her books come from her daughter's school days, or her own. Margaret and her family live in New York City, and spend as much time as they can during the summer in Maine.

"Margaret McNamara is a pen-name," says the author, whose real name is Brenda Bowen. "I write under the name Margaret McNamara because it was my maternal grandmother's name. The real Margaret grew up a very long time ago in County Clare in Ireland, and she was one of the few girls in her village who could read."

Margaret has just completed work on fifth and sixth Fairy Bell Sisters books (about Tinker Bell's Little Sisters); those two titles will release in summer and fall of 2014. Her most recent picture book is "The Apple Orchard Riddle," another book about the students in Mr. Tiffin's class, who first appeared in "How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin." Next up from Margaret is a new adventure set in Mr. Tiffin's class, "A Poem in Your Pocket," to be published on Poem in Your Pocket Day 2015. She is researching a picture book biography of Melville Dewey, inventor of the Dewey Decimal System.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was good for my son who is in 1st grade, but not an early reader. The story line, as in the entire series, is slightly different from other early readers. In this case, one of the students said he did not want to receive any Valentines, but felt left out later. My son was proud to be able to read the book. As a parent I liked the message that sometimes people do not feel exactly the way they say they do. The illustrations are good and there is a lot of detail worthy of discussion. At the same time, the book is relatively simple and not one a child would want to read over and over. Get free shipping and share the book with other children or donate to the class. I highly recommend the Robin Hill School series by Margaret McNamara.
