review 1: This is a great book for students that are beginning to read chapter books. It is the 3rd book Julie Sternberg wrote about Eleanor and her friend Pearl. In this book, Eleanor gets very upset when Pearl is assigned to be a "buddy" to the new girl in school, Ainsley. Pearl usually goes over to Eleanor's house every Monday and Wednesday because her parents are at work, but now she has to tutor Ainsley so she doesn't see Eleanor anymore after school. She also hates that Pearl volunteered Eleanor for lead part in the school play. Eleanor is shy and Pearl knows that, so Eleanor can't believe her "used to be" best friend did this to her. Eleanor feels like her life is falling apart, but by the end all of the the kids learn to cope with their new situations. It is a great b... moreook about making friendships, conquering fears, and helping others.
review 2: I love this series about Eleanor and her ups and downs in school...she is a 4th grader in this 3rd book. The author captures the events that seem insurmountable as a fourth grader and make the reader empathize completely with Eleanor. Any 4th grader will relate to Eleanor being sorry about telling a secret, being totally embarrassed by a classmate making fun of her in front of the class for a possible crush, for her developing a terrible case of stage fright, and for Eleanor missing her dog so much because he is away at doggie obedience school for two weeks. This sequel is wise as to how Eleanor decides to handle her problems. Her solutions come from her parents, her teachers, her friends, and her own self. 3rd and 4th graders should enjoy reading this as they will all find something to relate too, and it is not just for girls. There is another character, Nicholas, who is a very good friend to Eleanor, though it takes her most of the book to figure this out. The other two books in this series are Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie and Like Bug Juice on a Burger. This book can stand alone, but the reader will have more background on the characters if they are read in order. less

Loved this and wished I had read this to students before school ended.
Cute, middle-grade fiction (third, fourth) about friendship.
Adorable! Wonderful beginning of the year read aloud!
