Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4?In the third entry of this popular series, Amber Brown begins fourth grade without her best friend, Justin, who has moved. Still unhappy over her parents' divorce, she doesn't want to meet the man her mother is seeing. To top it off, instead of going to Justin's house after school, she has to go to Elementary Extension. Determined not to let her problems get her down, she makes a new friend (after a few false starts), participates in a burping contest, and eventually realizes that her mother, too, needs to move on with her life. Reluctant and beginning readers will be drawn in by Danziger's present-tense, staccato style and by the short chapters. Kids coping with problems similar to Amber's will find encouragement, sympathy, and an upbeat way of taking responsibility for solving them. Entertaining and satisfying, this is a first purchase, whether or not the rest of the series is owned.?Connie Parker, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland, OH

From Booklist

Gr. 2^-4. Amber Brown is back, her voice as funny and vulnerable as ever. She's entering fourth grade in a panic. Her parents are newly divorced; her best friend has moved away. How will she cope? She doesn't win the playground burping contest, but she does make a new friend and begins, very reluctantly, to think about accepting her mother's serious boyfriend. Better than You Can't Eat Your Chicken Pox, Amber Brown , this simple chapter book has the immediacy of the first title, Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon (1994). Fans will recognize the mundane and the cosmic when Amber Brown goes "forth." Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Amber Brown series is a hit with my daughter. She re-reads them asking new questions with each pass. I love that we can talk about what happens and that she is comprehending as she flies through the series.

A Kid's Review on May 18, 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is about a girl named Amber Brown. Amber Brown has to go to fourth grade without her best friend Justin. Justin has moved and Amber is worried. Amber does not want to go to fourth grade because everyone has a best friend except for her. I would give this book 5 stars because this story could be about anyone who has ever had a best friend.

I really enjoyed this book and hopefully you will to. It's like running down a football field and wondering if you're going to get to the goal line. This is the best book ever! Read Amber Brown Goes Fourth by Paula Danziger today!

This is a wonderful book. Amber is entering the fourth grade with all of the normal concerns. Along with this, she is also upset about her best friend, Justin, moving away, and her father and mother being divorced. Amber is able to meet a new girl the first day and decides that she will have a new best friend and life does go on. This is a quick, easy read and one that can be read out loud as well.

A Kid's Review on February 14, 2012
Format: Paperback
In the book, Amber Brown Goes Fourth, Amber doesn't like her mother because her dad and mom got seperated. Amber's dad went to France and her mother stayed with her. Also, her mom got a boyfirend named Max. They have been dating for a year. Amber loves to make her dad a diary. She created it. She also made a diary for her mom.
One of my favorite parts of the book is when Amber Brown and her dad play the kising game. When ever someone stops kissing on the phone, loses! Amber Brown Goes Fourth is a really good book because when I first got the book I was in love with the book. It is a very touching book. I recommend reading this book because when you hold this book and you let it go, you will want to pick it up again and again.

I bought this title to add to my 'Grandma Library.' I have several Amber Brown books. One of my granddaughters is in the third grade and really enjoys reading the independent and confident spirt of the title character!

A Kid's Review on March 19, 2012
Format: Paperback
I only like the the book because I thought it would be different from what it is. It didn't have a main focus that I could identify. The cover doesn't explain much either. It's about a nine year old girl who's best friend moved away. She has to find a new best friend. She disscovers a new fact about the new best friend.(I'm not telling you who the new best friend is so that you will read the book!)I hope you like the book when you read it. Happy reading!

ISBN 0590934252 - Danziger's career spanned several decades, including my childhood, when I first discovered her. That history does increase my fondness for Amber Brown, but I'd decided to like this girl even before I realized who the author was.

Amber's heading into fourth grade without some very important people. Her best friend, Justin, has moved away and her father is living in Paris since her parents separated. Fourth grade is going to be hard enough but without a best friend it's going to be lonely too. Looming in the background is her mother's new boyfriend, Max - a man Amber hasn't met and has no interest in meeting any time soon. Right now, her primary focus is on finding a new best friend.

I'm really impressed that this book (and the other Amber Brown books, I assume) is so very realistic. Parents divorce and some, like Amber's, can remain civil, at least in front of the kids. Friends move away, and friends fight. Those things aren't happy, good things, but they're real and the way Amber and her friends and family deal with them sends a nice message to the young reader. It's also nice to see that Amber grows at a normal pace unlike some series where the main character stays 10 forever. Danziger's death has left a hole in children's literature but I, for one, am just glad Amber Brown lives on.

If you like Amber Brown, you will like this book. I haven't read many other A.B. books, infact, the only ones I can remember reading are Amber Brown Is Not A Crayon and You Can't Eat Your Chicken Pox, Amber Brown. In this chapter book, Amber(the girl with the colorful name and the need to put her right shoe on first), must go forth to a new school year without her friend Justin for the first time in I *think* 6 years. It's tough making new friends and Hannah Burton is still a snob. And if that's not bad enough, Amber has to put up with her Mom's new boyfriend, whom she has never met and never wishes to. She is still fantasizing about her parents getting back together. However, at the end of the story, Amber concludes that she can't change things, but must learn to live with them. This book has it's moments. It's funny, it's fresh and it's way too short! :P Maybe it's just me. Cute.
