Kay Winter is the author of several books for children including Colonial Voices: Hear them Speak, Voices from the Oregon Trail, My Teacher for President and Did You See What I Saw? A former second-grade teacher, she strongly believes in the value of making history fin and accessible for children. She lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
reSchool-Grade 2-Winters and Cushman explore the exaggeration of childhood complaints by extending the statements to the point of absurdity. For example, a little girl's claim that "Nobody walks to school" is accompanied by a panorama of students arriving on conveyances ranging from a spaceship to a camel. The child's plea for a bigger allowance shows other children hauling money in a wagon and a monster piggy bank. The minimal text establishes the scenarios. Cushman's watercolors have a flat, static quality that underscores the deadpan humor inherent in common pleas. Adults will chuckle readily but may have to explain the sources of humor to children. The book might add a lighthearted note to parent-child differences of opinion over topics such as pets, clothing choices, and other perennial points of conflict, but it is not an essential purchase.
