    One thought on “Louise the Big Cheese and the Back-to-School Smarty-Pants”

    1. Louise reminds me of Fancy Nancy with more depth this title, she worries that she won't get straight a's because her teacher is strict. Surely these are feelings that children have had in elementary school and the "lesson" of the story is well served. An aside: my early elementary daughters embrace all of these bookseven though I'm slightly lukewarm about them. What do I know!?

    2. I go back and forth on this one. Louise wants to get straight A's. She is afraid that with mean, old Ms. Pearl she won't get any. Ms. Pearl tells her she can try harder. Louise learns a lesson about earning the correct praise and her grades. I am concerned by the message being sent by the quiz at the end of the book and the final pages with "Big Cheese SmartyPants Who Got straight A's." This is the part where I had more concerns. The illustrations are fun.

    3. You KNOW I don't exactly care for the other Louise the Big Cheese books. Maybe this one had me from the start with its calming blue cover. This is pretty much the antithesis of Miss Nelson is Missing, and I'm DYING to read those two books together now.i didn't like the endpapers, but I do love that Madonna appears on each book's endpapers. :)

    4. so cute. just the right speed and flow to keep both my 5 and 7 year old interested and quite for bed time. even my 2nd grade boy like Louise because she is also in the 2nd grade. these are just really cute and fun to read, i'm glad that we stumbled upon them.

    5. Louise has ordinary parents, a snippy older sister, big dreams and a talking dog named PeeWee. (Don’t worry about the dog; it’s not that kind of story.)The brightly colored illustrations are in perfect keeping with Louise’s grandiose daydreams and ambitious plans for her future. Simple dark outlines contrast with lovely swaths of pinks, purples, yellows, oranges and other hues. Even the cover sparkles, with glitter outlining the blue title.The story of Louise aiming to please her demanding [...]

    6. Louise Cheese wants to be the Big Cheese and she wants everyone to know it. She wants to have bright colors on her house, a ferris wheel, and everything that will make sure that nobody misses her greatness. On the night before her first day of second grade, her older sister announces that she will be getting straight As this year, of course, Louise wants to, too! Her new teacher, Mrs. Pearl is sure to give Louise straight As, right? But will it be easy?This is a great book to read to girls who a [...]

    7. Mommy's review from 9/16/11 - I've never been a big fan of the 'big cheese' phrase so this couldn't ever be a favorite of mine. I don't think Julia even knew what it meant or had ever heard it before because it's just not a phrase my family uses. Frankly, it's annoying.Julia liked this though - it's funny and she was caught off guard when the teachers were "switched".I was a little nervous about the message at first. I was concerned there would be little parts about how grades are all important [...]

    8. This is a good book that pays homage to the old adage, "You can't judge a book by its cover." Louise wants the happy, shiny, sweet blond teacher, but ends up with Mrs. Pearl, who "never gives As." She really doesn't like the teacher because she is tough and mean, but realizes that she also pushes Louise to work harder and do her best. The focus on getting all As is a bit distracting at first, but I love that Louise is proud of the grades she earned and is excited to work harder. We've read all o [...]

    9. Probably would be better for when Amaya is older. Louise is in second grade. I really liked this book. As a teacher, and as a mom. As a mom I liked that it initially had a kid who didn't like the teacher because she wasn't giving out easy As. She always tells Louise "You can do better." And in the end, Louise actually misses the teacher when she has a substitute who hands out As like toilet paper. She realizes she feels more intelligent with someone pushing her. As a teacher I liked it because I [...]

    10. I enjoyed this book because it has a focus on teachers. Louise didn't like her teacher because she was hard on her and didn't always give her good grades, but in the end she realized it was just because the teacher was pushing her to try her best. In the end, Louise realized this and ended up really liking the teacher because of it. I think this would be a good one to read to students because sometimes, like Louise, they might think a teacher is hard on them because they don't like them, but it' [...]

    11. This is my first Louise the Big Cheese book. In this story, Louise is headed to school and is determined to earn straight A's. Her teacher, Mrs. Pearl, however, is one tough cookie and tells Louise that she can do better. In the end, Louise is proud of her non-straight A report card and realizes that she can in fact do better. The illustrations are fun and the language is fabulous for first graders. Fancy Nancy lovers will probably eat Louise right up. The story felt a bit preachy -- is this pre [...]

    12. Louise wants to get straight A's so she can be a smarty-pants, but her teacher Mrs. Pearl is so tough that Louise is sure she'll end up working in a bubble gum factory. After an easy sub Louise decides it is better to have a teacher that really teaches. Louise gets straight B's, but she's okay with them because she earned them.*Oh, and Hillary Clinton is used as one of the women to look up to. ICK!

    13. The message that initial impressions can be misleading is well presented here. Some of the turns in this story are predictable and rehashed from other books I've read, but this is pretty good.

    14. This was a cute book about a girl named Louise who wanted straight A's and has a strict teacher. I loved the illustrations in this as well.

    15. This was a very cute and fast read about a girl named louise who wanted straight a's. I loved the artwork in this too. Check it out.

    16. The story of a little girl who starts the school year out with the "hardest" teacher, and discovers that she really loves her teacher after all.

    17. A good book to read to those "worried" or fixated on things. A good book for a teacher to use to introduce themselves to a class. I like the humor between the dog and the main character.
