What's Abigail Reading? Amber Brown is Tickled Pink

Abigail continued on her reading blitz this past week. I'm really proud and pleased with the way her reading has increased since heading back to school after the holidays. I think she's actually starting to enjoy her evening reading time. Great to see!

This week, Abigail was reading  Amber Brown is Tickled Pink, by Bruce Coville & Elizabeth Levy. Here's what she had to say about it.

This is what Abigail says the book is about.

"It’s about a girl named Amber. Amber’s mom is getting married to a guy named Max. They decide to have a tiny wedding at Camp Sukatteutt. Then Amber’s mom and Aunt Pam helps Amber pick out a dress. It is hard to pick out a dress because she doesn’t like any of them. Then Amber has to pack because she is spending the weekend with her father for the weekend and they are going to stay at the Plaza hotel. Amber’s dad said that they are going to see a Broadway musial, so then Amber got really excited because she was going to her first Broadway musical.

"When they were leaving to go drop Amber off back at her house she saw the perfect dress that she could wear to her mom’s wedding. Her dad saw it without telling Amber and said that he would buy it for her so then they went into the store and tried it on and it fit so then he bought it for her. Then they drove back home.

"Then when they were all finished they drive home to meet Max and pick him up. Max, Aunt Pam, Amber’s mom, and Amber drive in a car to Max’s grandmother’s and grandfather’s house. Their name was Rose and Herman. Rose and Herman were in the band that played for Max’s and Amber’s mom’s wedding. When they got to Rose and Herman’s house they played a little tune for them and then they all started to dance. Then Max, Aunt Pam, Amber’s mom and Amber drove to Camp Sukatteutt to see how they did for decorating and fixing the camp for Amber’s mom’s and Max’s wedding. Then the wedding came and finally Amber’s mom got remarried."

Here's what Abigail liked most about the book.

"I liked when they went to the Plaza, because I went to the Plaza once and I liked seeing it."

Was there anything she didn't like?

"I didn’t like when her mother got upset with her because Amber’s father got her the dress and it reminded her of her ex-husband."

So, how did Abigail rate  Amber Brown is Tickled Pink, by Bruce Coville & Elizabeth Levy?

She gives it four out of five dolphins!
