This book has been dear to me since I was in kindergarten. I remember laughing at the story and liking it mostly because the character shared the same name as me. I remember enjoying following Amber Brown through her days at school and her adventures with her best friend. I would love to add this book to my collection (it is either packed away in a box or misplaced at my parents home). I think children can relate to this story because it mentions when friends have to move away (and if a child has to move from all their friends), relationships with parents and siblings, and lots of laughs. The story is written as if Amber Brown were telling her true feelings and I believe it would be possible for my students to create similar ones. I would use this book for children's personal reading and for group instruction.
