Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Family, friendship, new school challenges, and a rather large dog problem combine as sisters adjust to their new tiny house life in this charming chapter book series starter from award-winning author Jennifer Richard Jacobson. Perfect for fans of Ivy and Bean and Judy Moody. In a tiny house, 3 shirts + 3 pants = 9 different outfits. Eight- and six-year-old sisters Twig and Turtle are excited and curious about their new small town in Colorado. And for their cool, tiny house! Their family is united in living more simply, and not stressing out the Earth's resources. But the move comes with a major problem: How do you fit a Great Dane in a tiny house? Sisters Twig and Turtle experience adventures and challenges with family, friends, and school as they adjust to living in a tiny house.

    Three moves after leaving their big house, first-grader Turtle, third-grader Twig, and their parents are finally settling into their new tiny home in Happy Trails, Colorado, and are starting their year's third first day of school. While Turtle easily makes new friends, Twig has a difficult time, and it seems that some of her classmates might even be making fun of her. She misses Bo, her grandma's Great Dane, the most, and Twig is devastated when she learns that Grandma might have to find him a new home. With a little help from her teacher, Twig joins the Social Skills Club, where she makes new friends and finds out that her classmates weren't making fun of her at all—and actually want to help her find a way to bring Bo to Happy Trails. Quick, illustrated chapters, appealing characters, and interesting plot points make for a promising chapter-book series starter. The girls' tiny house and their sisterly bond are sure to draw early readers back in for more. Grades 1-3. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
