As Amber Brown prepares for Halloween night, her excitement is dampened by worries that her parents’ arguing will ruin the evening’s fun. Danziger is again right on target in her characterization of 2nd grader Amber, and she keeps the tone playful even with the serious subplot of parental disharmony. Tony Ross’ lively watercolor illustrations reveal Amber’s varying moods throughout the day. Readers almost ready for chapter books will enjoy watching Amber and her friend Justin celebrate Halloween...more

I would use this book in my classroom to talk about halloween in my classroom. I can use it to talk about how sometimes parents fight and how it makes the students feel and what we can do to make ourselves feel better in those situations.
I read this book with my whiz kid and thought it was great. Kids can relate to this character because she talks about her parents fighting and how that upsets her. Plus, the story was just fun and realistic.
Mommy says: Great story and voice for 2nd grade readers, but also includes some really great information about the solar system and the current controversy over whether Pluto is a planet or not.
I would read this to my daughter when she was in the first grade. She loved it.
