Jingle Bells Homework Smells Diane Degroat

Ages 5-7. When his teacher assigns homework on Friday, Gilbert the possum isn't too concerned. After all, he has all weekend to draw a picture of a book character. Unfortunately, he puts the assignment off on Friday afternoon and again on Saturday, forgetting about it until Monday morning. His last-ditch solution, to make a snowman outside the classroom window, gets the lukewarm reception it deserves, though his teacher kindly extends his deadline by a day. Children old enough to have homework will see themselves in Gilbert as he procrastinates over the weekend, then dreads going to school. The Christmas season makes a warm, colorful backdrop, which is reflected in the watercolor artwork more than in the story itself. Another entertaining entry in the series that includes Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink (1996) and Happy Birthday to You, You Belong in a Zoo (1999). Carolyn Phelan
