K-Gr. 2. Sam considers that he has the best seat in second grade--right next to the cage of George Washington, the class hamster. When the students embark on a field trip to the local science museum, Sam takes along a little "something extra," George. Inevitable disaster strikes when the hamster jumps from Sam's pocket into the museum's Hamster Habitat. Luckily, Sam knows his furry friend well enough to pick him out of the sea of the museum's busy rodents. Kenah has created an appealing cast of characters whose actions ring true. Sam is properly contrite after George's close call with danger, and his teacher, Mr. Hopper, metes out a punishment that is both firm and fair. Carter's watercolor illustrations add to the story's appeal and will make this entry in the I Can Read! series a popular choice for emerging readers. Kay Weisman
