This book very amusing. Phoebe is a master procrastinator when it came to studying her spelling bee words. I see a lot of myself in her! I enjoyed this book. Phoebe had some pretty imaginative ways to remember how to spell her those words, and I wish I had thought of them when I was in school!

I really enjoyed this book a lot. It was about a little girl who did not like to spell, but she learned in a different way which was fun to read because it just shows the importance in recognizing different children's accomplishments and learning styles.

This was a great book. You can use it to assist you when you teaching children how to spell words correctly. It gives them a chance to see how you can break words apart to spell them.
