Review of THE LUNCHNAPPER by The Children’s Book Review
This book does a great job injecting facts into a storyline, making learning fun, while also touching on friendship and bravery. Pipsie holds her head high and defends her friend the turtle, doing what she knew to be right. A brave little girl!
“DeDonato has Pipsie follow some essential steps for scientific inquiry: firsthand inspection for clues followed by consultation with an expert in the field (the zoo man with the badge). –– School Library Journal Review June 1, 2015
“Overall I’d highly recommend this book! (My preschoolers) were able to follow along and I was impressed with how much they learned about the butterfly life cycle from the book.”–––Lisette, Where Imagination Grows
