Recommendation: Like Pickle Juice On a Cookie (2011) by Julie Sternberg
Book Review 1: Dean, K. (Booklist, 2011, 107(12)).
Kara Dean gave the book a positive review. She explained that “The story is told in straightforward, steady verse that echoes the gradual pace of Eleanor’s healing process” (Booklist, 2011). She compliments the cartoonish art style and while she doesn’t present a reading age, recommends it because it helps children who all eventually have to go through their first goodbyes in life.
Book Review 2: Stevenson, D. (The Bulletin of the Children’s Books, 2011, 64(7)).
Deborah Stevenson also gave the book a positive review. Hers goes into more detail when by recommending a reading level for kids between 2nd and 3rd grade and a price for the book at $14.95 through Amulet Books, an imprint of ABRAMS (2011). The books narrative is expressed as being suitable for being read aloud to a class of kids.
I prefer Deborah Stevenson’s review of the book because it goes into better detail about can found in the book and melancholy-yet-heartwarming prose of a girl learning to accept loss and change in her life.
