From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-- The nameless first-person narrator of this pleasant picture book is proud to carry a big green pocketbook just like her mother's blue one. As they set out for a trip to town, the little girl's purse is empty, but that is soon remedied. From the purple lollipop acquired at the bank, to the pocket calendar given at the dry cleaners and the new crayons from the drugstore, each stop means something new for the big green purse. All seems lost after the return trip, when the girl leaves her purse behind on the bus, but the friendly driver saves the day. This simple slice-of-life story is straightforward and convincingly told. The child's view is believably self-centered, yet her observations and activities will immediately spark recognition in readers. Bond's cheerful illustrations show a lively youngster exploring and enjoying the world around her. The pictures enhance the text by offering colorful glimpses of small-town life with a multicultural cast of characters. Those seeking an amusing everyday adventure will find it here. --Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
