From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-3?In this beginning chapter book, Lucy wants to be best friends with Maya, the new girl in her class. The action takes place during the course of a school day, a comfortable time frame for young readers. Children will recognize the events that pace the story: riding the bus, learning to subtract, art time, lunch, and recess. Lucy is a likable character and readers will identify with her wish to befriend someone as appealing as Maya. Lucy's classmate Zach brings additional zest to the story with his gum-chomping and pencil-poking friendliness. Simple, yet lively scratchboard illustrations balance the actions described. A fine addition where easy chapter books are in demand.?Maura Bresnahan, Topsfield Town Library, MA

From Kirkus Reviews:

The Best Worst Day ($13.95, $3.95 paper; April 22, 1996; 64 pp.; 0-7868-0167-0, paper 0-7868-1090-4): In the Chapters series, an entry about the wish for a friend that comes true, with only minor disappointments along the way. The new girl in Lucy's class, Maya, looks like perfect best-friend material, and Lucy practically wills it to be so. At the end of the day, it is Maya who asks Lucy for friendship. This sweet but unlikely tale has a gloss of perfection usually reserved for fairy tales; new readers will feel comfortable with the pacing and the just-right dose of suspense.
