School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“The first-person narratives draw in readers and make the very simple texts (about one sentence per page) clear and relatable. Full-color photographs that directly match the action assist in reading comprehension. . . . A solid way to start kids out on the road to personal responsibility.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple


“Nelson’s voice is chirpy though never condescending and always reinforces what is happening in the photos….[T]his ought to rev up kids for some helpful fun in the sun.” —Booklist
