The only kid on her block, Mabel can usually count on her grown-up neighbors for a game or two. Not today, though. Everyone is busy, and Mabel is a bit lonely . . . until she and her canine sidekick, Jack, think up idea after idea. There's one-footed roller-skating and Super Ball bowling and enough rambunctious fun that even the grown-ups wonder what they're missing. All t ...more

This book is a cute book to talk about how sometimes adults say we are too busy to pay attention to a child. The character is this book goes from adult to adult asking them if she can help out or do something with them and they tell her that they are too busy and to come back later. When children need someone to talk to, we should never do that to them. We should make time to talk to the children in our classroom if they need someone to talk to.

This is a nice story of neighbors and how it feels to be a kid when all the grown ups are busy. But Mabel is smart and can find ways to entertain herself. Cute. Ages 3+

With no one to play with Mabel makes her own fun. She has a great imagination and that is plus. What would life be without imagination? Not much fun.

Kinder really liked the whimsy in this book. They enjoyed that the grown ups tried to engage with Mabel, but that she made her own fun and was enjoying her own company by the time that they had time for her. Fun illustrations. A good lesson on independent play.
