Overview

First grade is fantastic. Posey loves her new best friends, they do fun things in class, and she adores her teacher. Then it’s Miss Lee’s birthday and Posey thinks her home-grown roses will be the best present of all. But when her friend brings a huge bouquet from a florist, Posey’s roses don’t seem special enough and she doesn’t give them to her teacher after all.

She feels horrible all day, but with some help from her mom, she comes up with the perfect, Posey way to make it up to Miss Lee–an after-birthday present.

Praise

"Once again, Greene’s brief chapters capture a first grader’s enthusiasm, small but real heartache, and problem-solving gumption–thank goodness for that pink tutu that turns Posey into Princess Posey, who ‘wouldn’t cry if someone gave the same present. She would just think of another present.’"
– The Horn Book
“It is an impressive feat when just a few short sentences can relay the complicated relationship dynamics as perceived by a first-grader, but Greene does it again and again as she chronicles Posey’s emotional endeavors with tenderness and compassion. Young readers will relate to Posey’s need to feel special in the eyes of one she admires, and they’ll be delighted when she finds a way to do so while remaining true to herself.”
– Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Greene continues to get the social dynamic of first-grade girls perfect. . . . Very short chapters, generous font, lots of eye-saving white space on each page and frequent black-and-white illustrations make this early chapter book accessible to the very earliest reader. Posey is flawed in a way that is absolutely perfect. She struggles with her emotions and finds her way back with the help of her mother, teacher and small circle of buddies.”
– Kirkus Reviews
