Ginny Louise and the School Showdown by Tammi Sauer- ADVISABLE

Sauer, Tammi. Ginny Louise and the School Showdown, PICTURE BOOK. Disney Hyperion, 2015. $16.99. Content: G.  There are three troublemakers at Truman Elementary. They’ve got their faces on wanted posters for all sorts of things: not doing homework, tardiness, talking back to the teacher, worst of all… not playing well with others. They get into trouble every single day. Every day until Ginny Louise shows up. Ginny Louise dances to the beat of her own drum. She likes to learn, she is kind, and she tends to hear only what she wants to. So when the Truman Elementary Troublemakers put her in their sites, she has no choice but to make them her friends. Ginny Louise ends up making a rag tag bunch into a fun group of students for her classroom. With endearing pictures and sweet text, the message of kindness and friendship stands out strong in this book. Sometimes kindness really does bowl people over. PRE-K, EL (K-3) -ADVISABLE.
