Waiting on Wednesday (15)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for readers to spotlight upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read, feature on their blog, or share with their students in their classroom.

This week's pick looks like it will be a bit of a tickler. Not only is that cover made of awesome, the plot looks like it will be a girl-power novel for second and third-grade readers. My son is in third grade, so I'm always looking for reads that help me get into his world because, let's face it, I'm pretty far removed.

Title: 'Don’t Wear Polka-Dot Underwear with White Pants’
Author: Allison Gutknecht
Publisher: Aladdin
Pages: 144
Release Date: 12 Nov. 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

Eight-year-old Mandy Berr learns life lessons with patriotic pizazz in the first adventure of a new chapter book series.

Eight-year-old Mandy Berr has a lot going on. She has to share her parents’ attention with her newborn twin siblings, who are always crying, and her little brother, Timmy, who is constantly in her way. And she also has to find a way to deal with her nemesis, Dennis, who has a knack for getting under her skin.

At least Mandy has the upcoming Presidential Pageant to look forward to at school. She is determined to be President George Washington—she is perfect for the lead part, after all. But when Mandy’s teacher makes a surprising choice, it looks like Mandy will have to keep sharing the spotlight. Can she find her own way to shine?

Mandy has some valuable life lessons to learns in this adorable chapter book—including the fact that white pants and polka dot underwear are never a good combination

What are you waiting for this week?

Happy Reading!
