review by stimmyabby
This is a patronizing rhyming book about a girl whose only character trait is being worried about school, until her only character trait is realizing that school isn’t so bad after all.
(Also, she says “I’m so glad I decided to give school a try!” after being forced to go to school, which isn’t actually deciding to give it a try at all and is exactly the kind of language condescending therapists use when they want you to like something.)
It isn’t any worse then those books usually are, but blergh.
