About this title


Kelly is disappointed when she is cast as a bumble bee in the school play but works hard on her buzzing and surprises everyone when she steals the show.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- A story about coping with disappointment and turning it into tri: umph. Kelly, a self-assured child, solicits her teacher for the leading role in the class play. After all, she can sing and dance, and ``. . . even sing and dance together.'' Naturally, Kelly is devastated to learn that she has been cast as a bumblebee. Her responsive and caring parents listen to her concerns and encourage her to practice her part. In spite of a few mishaps, the play goes on and the bumblebees dance; Kelly's performance draws the loudest applause. The African-American protagonist, Hispanic teacher, and ethnically diverse students weave an original story with universal appeal. The emotion and mood of Johnson's characters are captured in the vibrant watercolor illustrations. As in her books What Will Mommy Do When I'm at School? (1990) and What Kind of Baby-Sitter Is This? (1991, both Macmillan), Johnson taps into children's feelings and provides a warm, gentle, and reassuring message. --Barbara Osborne Williams, Queens Borough Public Library, Jamaica, NY
