What's Abigail Reading? How to Be Cool in the Third Grade

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you've all had a great day. Our family did the usual--parade, cook out, eat, now home watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. 

This week, Abigail read a book that hits close to home, as she's entering third grade in the fall. How to Be Cool in the Third Grade by Betsy Duffey sounds like an interesting book. Let's see what Abigail thought about it.

Here's what Abigail says the book is about.

“It was about a kid named Robbie. He was nervous on the first day of 3rd grade because Bo Haney made fun of him. When he got to the school list of class names, he hoped he would be in Mrs. Williams’ class. He didn’t see his name, but his friend Doug saw his own name in Mrs. Williams’ class as well as Bo Haney’s name in it too. So then Doug saw Robbie York’s name in the corner of Mrs. Williams’ class board. 

“Then Robbie makes a plan to be popular. The first stage is to get rid of the name Robbie. Number two is to start wearing jeans. The last part is to avoid bullies like Bo Haney. Will he be successful and be popular in 3rd grade? You’ll have to read the book to find out.”

What did Abigail like best about the book?

“When Bo Haney stops annoying Robbie. I liked that because it was nice to not be bullied.”
Was there anything Abigail didn't like?

“When Bo Haney made fun of Robbie’s underwear. I didn’t like it because it was not nice.

So, how does Abigail rate How to Be Cool in the Third Grade by Betsy Duffey?

Abigail  gives it four and a half out of five puppies and kittens.

  1. Sounds like a great book to help kids get ready for a new year of school. I don't like when kids are mean or bully each other either! :)
