Listener Opinions

    " As a future educator, this book, while well below the reading level of a University Graduate, was an insight into the importance of learning disabilities, and the profound effect they can have on students. Fun, simple read that doesn't tire you out, and may even catch yourself laughing aloud. "

    " This book teaches a good lesson about telling lies and how they only grow after being told. It also does a good job explaining why it's important to try to fix your mistakes when a lie has been told and although there are sometimes consequences for that mistake, being truthworthy is more important. "

    " This is the second Hank Zipzer book my son and I have read, and I've got to say Henry WInkler has found a wonderful formula for kids' stories. Hank has a pretty good life with is parents and sister in an apartment building in New York City. His mom runs a deli with her dad, Papa Pete. His dad loves to do crossword puzzles. And Hank has two best friends who live in the same building, Ashley and Frankie. Hank has just one problem: he has a lot of trouble in school. He finds it very hard to concentrate and even harder to remember what he's been trying to concentrate on. While it's a serious problem, Winkler and Olin milk it for great humor while all the time showing Hank's many other great qualities. In this story Hank is ashamed to show his parents the three Ds he got on his report card. In trying to hide the report card, it gets ground up into a batch of his mother's salami - salami intended for a very important customer. Now Hank and his friends have to figure out what to do. There are many laugh out loud moments in the story. The story also resolves with a serious look at why Hank is struggling in school and offers kids in similar circumstances a lot of hope that things can get better. "

    " A young boy named Hank Zipzer got a D in three classes and is to ashamed to tell his parents. One day at the deli he dropped it in the grinder. But the meat they where making was going to the president of the company. So he had to make a evolve skim to get it back before he eats it and gets sick. But he got caught and he had to call his parents and tell them what he did but the man thought he was dyslexic. So he got tested and it turns out he was. "

    " This book talks a lot about hanks learning problems and how he gets almost all d's. AHHHHHH! "

    " As the book opens, Hank and his mom are studying for a spelling contest. (exactly what is the purpose of spelling bees?) He is having problems trying to "focus." Spelling tests can be difficult for some kids and spelling bees make it even worse. As Hank says, "Call me crazy,but I don't know how anyone can think spelling is even slightly fun, let alone great fun." Hank gets into trouble when he doesn't sit down after he missed a word. The principal tells him,' "Following directions will get you where you need to be, no matter where you are." How do principals come up with this stuff !! That day report cards come out. Hank and his friends go to the deli his mom operates. She is trying to come up with a great soy receipe for salami for an important client. Through a series of events, Hank's report card ends up groud up in the salami. The salami gets taken to the important client and Hank goes to his house to stop the tasting. When he sees the salami, he can see such words (on paper in the salami) as "sloppy," "fail," and "D in spelling." There is a meeting with Hank's parents, Hank and the client. Hank explains the whole situaion. The client tells the story of his daughter,who had learning problems, and her being tested and then with the proper help she was able to attend Columbia University. Hank's parents finally decide to have him tested. They didn't have him tested after the first suggestion as Hank's dad couldn't admit there was a problem. (sound like any man you know??) Tests prove Hanks has some learning challenges and the school will help. Everyone learns in different ways (no kidding !!), the school will give Hank information in a variety of ways (including tapes) work on study skills and more time for tests. Hank's mom's client becomes a champion for Hank....and all kids need champions ! "
