This book is a GREAT beginning chapter book for so many reasons. One, the chapters are really, really short. This is great for children who are just beginning chapter books…you don’t want them to tucker out too quickly or feel too overwhelmed. Two, there are pictures mingled in with the story. Children who are just beginning chapter books will often look to make sure a book has pictures before deciding to read it. They are ready for more words, but not quite ready to give up the pictures. Three, this is the cutest story ever that many children could relate to. Eleanor is having a very bad day. Her babysitter, who she has known her whole life, is moving away. Many children have dealt with change and bad news and Eleanor deals with it in the best way she knows how and learns that even though change is hard and not any fun, that sometimes things can turn out okay.
