A happy welcome to the Blog Tour for A IS FOR ELIZABETH Series by Rachel Vail! I just had to participate after seeing the adorable covers + it sounds like a book I would love.
For today’s tour stop I got an excerpt for you to read (with fun illustrations), I will tell you about both books and the author, and then you can also join the giveaway.
Here we go, blog tour a go go.
Elizabeth is in second grade. Class 2B! It’s great! Friends, recess, homework!
Even a big project: Make a poster of your name.
The name Elizabeth has a bajillion letters in it!
The name Anna has only four letters. Plus, Anna’s first letter is A, which is also the first letter of Alphabetical Order. But Anna can’t always be first! That’s not fair!
In A is for Elizabeth, Elizabeth makes more than a poster. She also makes some important choices—about fairness, rules, speaking up, and glue. But the most important thing she makes is…a friend!
A new spin off from Vail’s Justin Case series starring Justin’s little sister.
Second-grader Elizabeth longs to be a member of the Big Mouth Club, which is made up of kids who have lost at least one baby tooth. Elizabeth is WAY behind on losing her baby teeth, and so is Cali, a quiet girl who is also left out of the Big Mouth Club. Elizabeth thinks Cali is so much more babyish than she is–in fact, Elizabeth SHOULD be in the Big Mouth Club because she’s NOT babyish. But when she understands how bad it feels to be left out, Elizabeth’s attitude shifts.
Here is a story about fitting in in unexpected ways. With copious line art by Paige Keiser, this second book in Rachel Vail’s Elizabeth series is sure to delight fans of Judy Moody, Junie B. Jones, and Clementine.
