Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is the second book in the Calendar Mysteries series, a follow-on to the A to Z Mysteries by the same author. This series caters to a slightly younger audience and our girls really enjoy them. The mysteries are more benign and the stories are fairly short. They are good books for beginning readers who are starting to read chapter books. Our girls loved that this book highlighted a class pet.

I think this is a good book for second and third graders. I like how the main characters are pretty independent of their parents, though the parents still have a presence in the story.

Blah. This might be okay for early readers who are stretching their skills, but it didn't do anything for me. After doing math and writing in their journals (do what?), the children in Mr. Vooray's first grade class launch into their Valentine's Day celebrations and find a mysterious gift of a pet rabbit in the "closet." The rabbit, whose name is Douglas, is not eating or drinking and misses his owner. If the kids can't track down the original owner, Douglas is doomed.
I don't know about you-all,

This is a chapter book in a series called Calendar Mysteries, we've read a few of these books and this one was very good. The class receives a surprise Valentine which ends up being a class bunny. BUT the bunny is 'sick' so the twin boys that get to take him home for the weekend sees he's not well and they take him to the vet. The vet tells them he is depressed and needs his owner. but they don't know who it was that left him. They only have three photos of him as a baby bunny to go off of. So t ...more

February Friend is a book about four children who at a school party get a message to check in the closet. To their surprise they find a rabbit that is very ill. The book does not provide a lot of text detail which does not help kids being able to imagine things. The book however does provide illustrations which can help for a little more detail. One big thing about the book is that it helps teach kids responsibility due to the fact the four kids in the book decided to help take care of the sick ...more

This book was a bit disappointing. There were so many characters, with too similar of names for me to keep track of. I cannot imagine being a child trying to keep all of the characters straight. The plot was cute though, trying to find the Bunny's owner; however, I think the moral was slightly flawed. Also throughout the story every food item is sweets, sweets, and more sweets. This is a child's book, maybe discouraging eating sweets all day would be a good idea. The book was over all okay, but ...more

Who left a bunny in the classroom? What seems to be a really great (though mysterious) gift turns into a darker tale quickly as the bunny isn't doing too well, and it becomes crucial to find out where the little critter came from before it's too late. The kids are great, the solution creative and such an awesome idea that I think it should be followed in actual communities of that nature. Really great story!

I liked it because it was full of mysteries. It was surprising because the lunch monitor he put a bunny in the closet and the bunny (named Douglas), he can't do things without his owner. The lunch monitor can't take Douglas because he's moving somewhere where they can't have animals. I loved the book.

Dominic (6) quite liked this one. He liked Douglas the rabbit and was very worried that he would die. He was also pretty cross with Mr Neater.

Dom was very about Goldilocks the hamster living in Mr Voorey's classroom. He brought our hamster onto the bed so that she could hear the story, in case Goldilocks made a appearance.

A quick, cute, fun story to read with children in February. Both of my children enjoyed this book (they are 10 and 7). It's fast and easy to read. And if the children have already read the A-Z mysteries, as my children did, they get to read about some of the same characters.
Was hoping this story would have a Valentine's Day related mystery, but Valentine's Day was barely mentioned. Overall the story and mystery were okay, but I still think these books have way too many characters. So far I am unimpressed with the "Calendar Mysteries" series.

I loved when they found Douglas in the closet.
And when they found Douglas's owner.
When they met Douglas.
And when the twin's mother was feeding Douglas a baby bottle.

It was alright. Good read for your son, a Valentine's Day Story that isn't lovey-dovey or girly.

This story was very meaningful and interesting. And my favourite chacater is Bradley, it is because he is a good man, he was care to the rabbit.

A great early chapter book. I will be using this book for VPL's 2nd-3rd grade book discussion. I'm sure most of the kids really liked it.
