I'm giving this book 4 stars because it made me laugh. Did you know that there's a desk fairy named Deskarina and the tooth fairy's name is Dentalina? Haha.
I also like that Amber Brown discovered a way to do something she thought she couldn't do and turned a bad habit into a good habit.
It's a cute, imaginative book, and Haven liked it enough to read it twice. That's saying something.

This easy reader is the last in the A is for Amber Brown series, which ended in 2004, following author Paula Danziger's death. I couldn't get enough of Paula Danziger when I was in middle school, and this story, about second-grader Amber's troubles with a messy desk, reminded me of the reasons I love her writing.

Amber Brown loves second grade. She loves her teacher, Ms. Light, who creates special days like pocket day, and she can live with the classroom rules, which involve being respectful, bei

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a fun and imaginative tale about a little girl's experiences in second grade. All is great until the desk fairy comes to visit. Amber is a creative and cooperative student, but she finds it difficult to keep her desk clean and neat. This is a story of her attempts to change that and it's a fun story for children in first and second grades. Our girls really liked it.

Mommy says: The A is for Amber books are really for beginning readers who want a taste of the chapter book life. Cana has already devoured all the Amber Brown chapter books, but I picked up this and others in the series just to round out our entire Amber Brown reading experience. She probably read this in 3 minutes.

Amber heads to second grade and has a lot of worries about who her teacher is going to be, and what it's going to be like.

I enjoyed visiting Amber's classroom, and I enjoyed learning a bit about the name "Amber." Overall it's a good book, and an enjoyable series. One I would recommend.

This book is a good way for students to read about following rules and how if you do you can reap the benifits. This is obviously a book for second graders.

I do not like it when Hannah Burton tries to trip Amber Brown.
I like it when Amber Brown gets her reward.
