Abby and the Book Bunch – Library Media Connection

The dialog and actions. . .were very realistic and appropriate to third graders.

Abby and the Book Bunch – School Library Journal

The busy lives of Abby, her friends, family, and neighbors in the idyllic suburban community of Evergreen are the focus of these early chapter books. . . . Generously sized font, short chapters, and a good number of gray-scale digital cartoon illustrations make these fast and fun reads. Each book includes activity suggestions to extend some of the ideas presented in the story
