    " Easy read and keeps your attention. Classmate dynamic from which many can identify and learn. "

    " Interesting story about the interpersonal dynamics in school and how to deal with bossy children. Andy's Granny is a breath of fresh air and shows one way to help without interfering. We also learned that a dragonfly is an Anax junius. Good book for intermediate readers or for parents to read aloud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracie | 1/29/2011

    " With a little help from the bug-loving Granny Webb, Andy makes peace with the class know-it-all and learns to love school again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/10/2010

    " I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could.
    This is a series of (at least) 3 books we've read so far.
    What we have enjoyed most is watching how the relationship between Andy and Dolores develops through each book. "

    " Love the Grandma.

    Lots of connections for a real classroom- morning meeting, math centers, etc.

    Not a lot of meaty discussion, though. "
