Pinkalicious and the New Teacher by Victoria Kann - GIFT

Kann, Victoria  Pinkalicious and the New Teacher  Harperfestival, 2014.  $6.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

Pinkalicious is starting school with a new teacher and she is nervous about the change.  At first PInkalicious doesn't like all the new ways the teacher does things, but when her teacher asks her for new ideas, Pinkalicious gets to know her teacher and she is happy.   

This book addresses the fears that most kids have starting a new school year with a different teacher.  Those readers who like Pinkalicious in her other books will like these as well.  I didn’t love that Pinkalicious basically complained until she got what she wanted out of the class, instead of learning to like the new teacher’s ideas.  There are also stickers, a poster and bookmarks included which make this a better gift that anything for a library.   

EL (K-3)-GIFT.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
