Synopsis: The third grade of Parkside Elementary School finds out that it is hard work as well as fun to produce their own school newspaper

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3--These titles present fictionalized accounts of the working day and general responsibilities of three school professionals: the physical education teacher, the nurse, and the principal. A list of primary duties appears on the last page. A Good Sport is didactic, as Lakin tries to teach a lesson on good sportsmanship rather than explore the gym teacher's full spectrum of responsibilities. The Mystery Illness is the most successful as it shows the nurse to be both a provider of medical attention as well as a sympathizer to both kids and adults. While A True Partnership shows the busy, eclectic schedule of the principal, it also makes adult readers painfully aware of how innocent this series is overall. All of the events hark back to a rural setting and a long-gone idyllic world. There are no drugs, no knife wounds, no discipline problems; aggression is replaced by situations that are easily and happily solved. These books would seem too precious on the shelves of an inner-city library although the multiethnic mix of the students and teachers at Parkside Elementary, as seen in the representational watercolor illustrations, would at least make them appropriate for the changing face of small-town America.
