Clothesline Clues to the First Day of School
14,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Following Jobs People Do (2012) and Sports People Play (2015), Heling, Hembrook, and Davies are back with another Clothesline Clues book, this time focusing on the different roles people might play in a school. As with the earlier books, a short stanza sets up the scene: 'High on the clotheslines / hang clue after clue. / It's the first day of school! / Who wants to meet you?' The two spreads that follow first encourage readers to guess whose belongings are hanging on the clothesline and then reveal the answer. A coat; yellow hat, gloves, and safety vest; and a hand-held stop sign must belong to 'your crossing guard.' A classroom teacher's things include a button-down shirt, bow tie, sport coat, book bag, and a class roster. The other jobs include cafeteria cook, custodian, and gym and art teachers. The final clothesline holds myriad pants, shirts, dresses, scarves, coats, and backpacks that belong to the new friends anxious to meet readers. Davies' people are diverse in race and ability (several wear glasses, and one uses a wheelchair), and one girl wears hijab. Most of the adults are the opposite gender of the typical stereotype: Both the classroom teacher and the cafeteria worker are brown-skinned men, and the gym teacher and custodian are brown-skinned women. Davies' bright pencil, mixed-media, and digital illustrations feature white backgrounds to help readers focus on the clues and on the things they will notice in their own classrooms. Another solid entry. — Kirkus Reviews What friendly faces will be encountered on a child’s first day of school? Look at the clotheslines to find out! As the title indicates, clothing and accessories hang from clotheslines throughout this book. Readers are given pages of textual and visual clues alternating with the reveal of the character described in their expected environment. For example, “Raincoat and warm gloves,/a hat and stop sign, too./Safety vest and badge./Who wants to meet you?/Your crossing guard!” Other clothesline clues reveal a teacher, cafeteria worker, custodian, gym teacher, art teacher, and new friends. The predictability and welcoming nature of each segment will help young children find comfort in the story as they are faced with the potentially nerve-wracking introduction to school. A variety of children and adults are depicted in the images, adding inclusivity and connectedness to the story that is not directly stated by the text. Every illustration gives readers the opportunity to name recognizable objects and places, enhancing the readability of this book. VERDICT Whether readers are entering school for the first time or are old pros, all will enjoy the guessing game and overall message of this lovely story. — School Library Journal Items hanging on a clothesline provide hints about the people that readers might encounter at school. The story's text takes the form of snappy stanzas: 'Book bag and new shirt, / a class roster to review. / Bow tie and jacket. / Who wants to meet you?' Based on the clothesline clues, the answer to this riddle is a teacher—a smiling figure shown in a colorful classroom. The story moves forward in this manner, depicting a wide variety of school personnel, from a crossing guard to a cafeteria cook to a custodian. It concludes on a high note with a diverse group of students at play. Andy Robert Davies' vibrant, upbeat illustrations make this a title that parents and kids will appreciate as summer comes to an end. As this skill-building book shows, it takes a village to ensure that a school runs smoothly. — BookPage

New York City, 1945. Marjorie Jacobson and her best friend, Marty Garrett, arrive fresh from the Kappa house at the University of Iowa hoping to find summer positions as shopgirls. Turned away from the top department stores, they miraculously find jobs as pages at Tiffany & Co., becoming the first women to ever work on the sales floor, a diamond-filled day job replete with Tiffany-blue shirtwaist dresses from Bonwit Teller´s—and the envy of all their friends. Looking back on that magical time in her life, Marjorie takes us back to when she and Marty rubbed elbows with the rich and famous, pinched pennies to eat at the Automat, experienced nightlife at La Martinique, and danced away their weekends with dashing midshipmen. Between being dazzled by Judy Garland´s honeymoon visit to Tiffany, celebrating VJ Day in Times Square, and mingling with Café society, she fell in love, learned unforgettable lessons, made important decisions that would change her future, and created the remarkable memories she now shares with all of us.

Advance Praise for Monica McInerney’s Lola’s Secret: 'Bestselling author Monica McInerney once again charms readers with her character-driven plots and picture-perfect settings....McInerney’s optimistic tone is ultimately uplifting and hopeful.'-- The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star “McInerney brings a light touch and plenty of humor to her on-the-nose depiction of the characters… Lola, and the novel, cheerily salute the extraordinary in the ordinary and the connections of family and friends.” --Booklist 'This delightful novel takes up the story of the Quinlan family from The Alphabet Sisters. Four years on, 84-year-old matriarch Lola is gathering mystery guests to a motel for Christmas Day.  Exploring universal family issues of loss, rivalry, ageing and grief, this is a warm, witty and moving novel.' --Woman’s Day, Australia “This is a charming, witty novel in which Monica’s assured writing sparkles and which, when you reach the end, will leave you feeling like you’ve been given a huge, warm hug.”  - –Hello Magazine “Lola Quinlan must be the grooviest granny ever to strut through fiction.  She dresses like a movie star punk rocker, she’s audacious, and she’s 84.  …Mixes debate about ageing, childrearing, community and mental illness into a delicious and at times surprising Christmas cake.  Purely for fun.” — Sunday Mail Brisbane Book of the Week (Australia) “The book is hugely entertaining but also reminds us of the importance of thinking of others as McInerney draws a beautiful and very convincing portrait of the characters either depleted by the demands of modern life, desperately lonely or in need. …McInerney is the mistress of the plot and weaves about five into this fine, textured read.” - –Sunday Tasmanian (Australia)   “ Lola’s Secret is a lovely, gentle story of a family, a Christmas, love and different kinds of adventure.” — Brisbane Courier Mail (Australia)   “A moving and mostly gentle tale about age, family, love, loss and secrets... As each strand of the story is secured and resolved, the message is about the priority of family and the power of love...In Lola’s Secret, as in her other novels, McInerney’s aim is unerringly true.”-- Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin (Australia)   “McInerney’s cast of a thousand chatty voices is etched effortlessly and resonantly by the end of chapter two and has been described as “comfort reading” and “warm buttered toast”. Except McInerney’s protagonist is no pushover and there are no honey-dripped endings. This is full of grains of truth: it is never too late to live, but you are never too old to learn.”-- Australian Women’s Weekly   “Monica McInerney published her popular novel The Alphabet Sisters in 2004 and in Lola’s Secret she revives one of the most interesting central characters –the eccentric grandmother Lola. …McInerney also humorously explores the stereotype of senior citizens as technophobes and luddites.” - -Bookseller & Publisher (Australia)   “Once again McInerney delivers well-written dialogue and a refreshing storyline which is what we have come to expect from this talented teller of tales.” —Launceston Examiner (Australia)   “McInerney’s writing is always so easy to read.  It has a beautiful flow that’s soothing regardless of her topic… [ Lola’s Secret is) a comforting tale that focuses on the themes of love, friendship and family.” - –Mindfood (Australia)    “McInerney has created an unlikely but charming heroine in Lola so that you have to discover how it all works out.  In a word: Charming.” —Townesville
