Jasper John Dooley: Not in Love by Caroline Adderson- ESSENTIAL

Adderson, Caroline Jasper John Dooley: Not in Love. CHAPTER BOOK. Kids Can Press, Limited, 2015. $15.95. Content: G. At school, Jasper is playing dragons with his friends. Isabel and Zoe come up to them and demand they play “babies” with them.  Jasper and Ori agree to play. In the classroom Isabel becomes Jasper’s reading partner. After school that day, Isabel asks Jasper’s mom for his phone number so they can play. Jasper does NOT want to play with Isabel because she is a girl and all girls do is comb their hair and do “girly” things. Isabel and Jasper end up having a play date. Read to find out whether this is a good or a bad thing. I liked how simple but detailed the illustrations were.  I also liked the simplicity of the characters. ESSENTIAL. EL (K-3). Student Reviewed: JL- age 12.
