She loves reading passages aloud, and I have to admit some of them are funny. I haven't read the whole book, but I know after reading a library copy my daughter liked it so much she wanted to buy a copy to own and re-read. The author's self-depricating style appeals and seems to put girls at ease about how embarrasing things can happen to anyone and still life goes on.

She reminisces about family, playmates, and school, as well as her various likes reading ranks high on the list, and a lively chapter covers her girlhood affinity for miniature cameras, SuperBalls, and Band-Aids and dislikes.

Gr Hodgman has written a humorous memoir of her childhood up to the sixth grade. The book is a collection of "life stories" that vary in length, and, as she states, the chapters need not be read in sequence. Her witty prose has the right balance of nostalgia and self-deprecation. Whether she is describing the time she first heard her kindergarten teacher read "Hansel and Gretel" and hid in the coat closet, or she is blaming the demise of a plastic kiddie pool on a two-and-a-half-year-old neighbor, her text transports readers right to the scene.
