K-Gr 2—In this tenth book in the Princess Posey series, spring break is here, and Posey is disappointed that her mother is planning for them to stay at home and have a "lazy vacation." But, as her teacher says, "it's impossible for a first grader to have a boring vacation!" A lost tooth, a bike crash, and a first sleepover are a few of Posey's activities. (She and her Gramps have a lovely relationship as they search for frogs' eggs.) Greene's charming beginning chapter book authentically mirrors the everyday life of a young child. For example, when one of the children at the sleepover misses her mother and leaves to go home, the other children wonder when she will feel ready to try a sleepover again. The mother's response is precious: Ava will be ready "when she feels it inside." Stina Nielsen's gentle narration is warm and expressive, with smooth transitions among voices.
VERDICT It will be impossible not to be drawn into this sweet story.
