Billie B. Brown is so excited to be chosen as the buddy for a new student in her class. She loves being there to help ease Mika's transition into a new school, especially since Mika does not speak much English. But when Billie comes to school the next day and Mika copies everything she does, the thrill is gone. Why does Mika have to dress like her and do everything she does? It's enough to make a girl lose her cool.
Do you have any children or students who enjoy hearing stories about Junie B. Jones or Ready, Freddy read aloud to them, but they are not quite ready to read a chapter book of that length on their own? Then Billie B. Brown and Hey Jack! are perfect for them! The same sort of real life situations and humor, but in a shorter format with more illustrations. These books are great for beginning chapter book readers. Don't worry that the boys won't like them, because Billie's friend Jack is in Billie's stories and has his own series, too.
I won a copy of the book in a giveaway by the publisher and can't wait to introduce it to my students.
