A book review by Mr. B from the Grandview Branch:  

It’s hard to be a perfect angel. It’s even harder when George (AKA “Suds”) is trying to win the first of the halos third grade teacher Mrs. Simms is awarding weekly to the most perfect angel in her class.  Will it count if Suds does something “angel-like” when Mrs. Simms isn’t watching?  What happens if he slips and is mean to his little sister?  How can he be better than the already perfect Darren Tapp?

 It’s an age old moral dilemma brought ever so close to home by versatile veteran children’s author Jerry Spinelli in Third Grade Angels.  This quick and funny chapter book would also make an effective home or classroom read-aloud.
