The Amber Brown series has turned my son into a reader. He has severe ADHD, so keeping him interested long enough to read is a challenge. He also has issues with reading as it is a nonprefered activity and he will usually do anything to avoid it. Then he found Amber Brown! He loves these books and is actually asking for extra reading time!

My daughter said it was a funny book. She is seven and liked it a lot.

Generally I like Paula Danziger's books, but my granddaughter wasn't thrilled with this one. There is so much pressure on kids to conform in school that it's harder these days to appreciate that non-conforming has any value except to get you in trouble. The message isn't as cool as it used to be.

My daughter is really enjoying the Amber Brown series.

Bought this book for my 8 year old 3rd grader as a part of his summer reading assignments. It was enjoyed by both my 8 and 6 year old.

Present for granddaughter, she loves to read and she really loves the Amber Brown books. She was very happy, and I was very pleased.

ISBN 0590947168 - Amber Brown is a character I've really come to like, but these books are marked for ages 7 to 10 which some parents might disagree with. If you have issues with a classmate of Amber's wearing a bra (and Amber mentioning it) or violence... although it's all aimed at Barbie dolls... this is not the book for your child.

Amber's struggling with her parents divorce and mother's new relationship and it's beginning to show in her grades. Faced with the threat of a letter home, she sets out to repair the damage and asks for extra credit. Her teacher refuses to allow her to get any, explaining that extra credit is for students who are obviously trying very hard - and Amber hasn't been. The only thing left to do is work very hard on her newest assignment.

Adding to her woes, Amber makes her mother cry when she continues to refuse to meet Max, her new boyfriend. Certain, or pretending to be, that her parents will get back together, Amber has no desire to meet - and worse, possibly like - the man who might want to try replacing her father.

These books are so authentic that I can't see why anyone would object to the topics. Divorce happens, children react badly, divorced parents date, fourth grade girls have been known to wear bras, siblings torment each other (sometimes through Barbie dolls!). That there is a book - even better, a series of books - that children in these situations can relate to is a great thing. Still, if you think your 7 year old isn't prepared for any of the content, you might want to hold off sharing this series for a couple years. I, for one, think kids will enjoy Amber every step of the way.

Book Review of Amber Brown Wants Extra Credit By:Paula Danziger Fiction
This review is by my 3rd grade student, Breanna.

Amber Brown is so hilarious! Today she wants extra credit! Not because she is tired of doing regular old homework. She wants to make delicious cupcakes! But with anything off the shelf... like gummy worms... and she has more disgusting things. The book makes me anxious. I had a cup full of fun because she gets all messy. Her mom is dating a boy named Max! Now instead of getting her homework in early, now its late. Instead of her room clean, it's dirty. She loves writing notes to her dad in France. You will get messy in this messy old book. I love this messy book because it's fun to find out about what she and Max and her mom are up to. This is so hilarious. I am so hyper active! I recommend this book to K-6 grade. You will dig into this book like you have a shovel.
