4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for younger readers who are ready for a more mature tale, October 27, 2013
This review is from: The Year of Billy Miller (Hardcover)
This is the story of, wait for it, Billy Miller. The book takes us from the start of 2nd grade to the end. This is a short book with fairly large print, but it's not just a "ready for chapter books" sort of book.

It features Billy's fears and worries and accomplishments. School stories are very popular, but tend to either feature bratty girls or older kids facing different concerns than a younger elementary school kid. I love that Billy's problems are totally age appropriate, and examine the feelings -- not just the events of trouble or misunderstandings.

If you don't think your kid would go for a more heartfelt story (there's humor, too!), do it as a read-aloud. Even better, because it might open the door to discuss his fears and worries.
