Very happy to have discovered the Hopscotch Hill series of books. My 5 year old relates to all of the stories and they have opened up good discussions about interrupting, teasing, finishing projects, etc. ..Best of all, my husband, who often grumbles over kids books, does not mind reading this series. Check it out!
From School Library Journal Grade 1-2-In this early chapter book, Lindy has creative ideas for doing tasks, but they often require more work than is necessary. She involves the other children in her class in doing things her way, but midway through each activity she becomes bored and leaves. When the children are given the opportunity to hatch duck eggs and raise the ducklings, Lindy typically has ambitious plans. As usual, her lack of responsibility leads to trouble as she forgets to place the lid on the cage. The ducklings make a mess, and Lindy’s classmates good-naturedly pitch in to help her clean it up. Although the students are always cooperative, they are becoming disturbed by the girl’s behavior, and they decide to help her develop responsibility skills by making and using a checklist and encouraging her to stick with the job. With its easy vocabulary, engaging plot, and realistic watercolor-and-pencil illustrations, this title is a perfect bridge to longer chapter books. An extensive note to parents gives suggestions for teaching their youngsters the lessons that Lindy needs to learn about making realistic plans, completing them, and using a checklist. A solid purchase.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Lindy loves being in Miss Sparks’s class at Hopscotch Hill School, where she has many friends of all shapes and sizes. Like every child at Hopscotch Hill School, Lindy has many great ideas. But she also has a small problem. Whatever she starts, she forgets to finish! When Lindy accidentally forgets to put the lid back on the box containing a family of ducklings that Miss Sparks’s class is raising, trouble is all over the place. It is only when a few great friends, and a fun field trip to a farm help Lindy find a happy ending, and learn a lesson in responsibility. American Girl has always featured fabulous books for middle readers, and now they’ve done an amazing job in writing an amazing book series for young readers. And one that teaches them a lesson, as well. The Hopscotch Hill School series is a lovely group of books that will have your child learning along with the children featured in each book. If you’re looking for a great new book series for your little reader, pick up LINDY’S HAPPY ENDING, or any book in the series. You won’t be disappointed.
