    One thought on “Attaboy, Sam!”

    1. Lois Lowry is an incredibly talented children’s author, but I’m not much of a fan of this entry. Yes, Sam is just as endearing, and I enjoy how Lowry shows his growth into the preschool-age era. The story is enjoyable and well written, but it doesn’t seem to have quite the same flair as the original (All About Sam). I also don’t appreciate a few lines that are inappropriate for a children’s book. If you’re a huge fan of Lowry or the character Sam, it’s worth at least one read. But [...]

    2. Sam is a cute kid and perfect little brother for Anastasia. Category: realistic juvie fiction. Loving the interaction and laughing moments in this family.

    3. Read with my daughter just finished with 2nd grade. Sam makes a homemade birthday present for his mom, with disastrous results, but he's in good company. I used to own a paper copy of this one.

    4. Read this aloud with both kids - delightful. This was perfect for AJ. Sweet family connections and a lot of humor. He immediately wanted to read the other books in the series.

    5. 2.5 starsHonestly, this book is very forgettable. I am writing this review less than two weeks after finishing and I already forgot that I read it. I think even if I had read this as a kid, I would have found it boring. There is really nothing that sticks out in my mind, no characters or plot points which will stick with me. This book is fine if you want to give kids an easy, light read to start them off, but its not really a classic like some other beginning-to-read chapter books with more comp [...]

    6. In this book, Attaboy Sam by Lois Lowry, there's this boy named sam. He lives with his mom, dad,and his sister Anastasia. Sam's mom's birthday is coming up, and he wants to make the perfect gift for her. He thought he should make her, her own homemade perfume. Sam figures out throughout the book some of his mom's favorite smells. He puts them in plastic bags, and then takes them to his room to his chest box (which he calls his lab) and adds them to form the perfume. Anastasia had a similar idea [...]

    7. This review also appears on my blog, Read-at-Home Mom.In his second book, Sam Krupnik wants to give his mother a birthday gift so wonderful that she won't be able to help but say, "Attaboy, Sam!" He decides to concoct a perfume consisting of all of Mrs. Krupnik's favorite smells, but does not count on the chemical reaction this will cause in the toy box where he mixes the potion.Like Anastasia Ask Your Analyst (the book where Anastasia and Sam hide a family of gerbils from their mother) this sto [...]

    8. Sam is back in his second book and he's got a plan. His mother's birthday is coming up and she only wants homemade gifts. When Sam finds out that her favorite perfume has been discontinued, he decides that he will make her a new one, with all of her favorite scents. He collects easy things like a pipe and chicken soup. The smell of a new baby is harder, but Sam figures it out. The only problem is that the perfume doesn't quite smell like he had hoped. And it's doing some funny things like bubbli [...]

    9. I thought this book was quite clever when I was younger. I don't see why I didn't feel that same attachment now.I thought Sam's antics were sweet and cute. Him trying to make a perfume for his mother's birthday by collecting various things and whatnot. I liked his concern and care for his mother. The ending was weird, though. I was expecting a nicer ending.I was surprised to learn that Lois Lowry, the same author who wrote The Giver, wrote this book. I guess it isn't this book's fault. Maybe I'v [...]

    10. Lowry handles a preschooler's perspective with both humor and compassion. She never makes Sam an object of fun and does a great job of representing his inner thoughts and emotions to the reader. In this book, Sam's heartfelt effort to come up with a birthday gift for his mother is the main storyline, and the mishaps along the way are resolved in a funny and sweet ending. I'm finding the Sam books to be great read-alouds for my 5-year-old (and my almost 9-year-old usually finds his way onto the c [...]

    11. Sam wanted to make a homemade gift for his mother's birthday, so he collected everything she liked and put that in one container hoping it would make a nice smelling perfume. Unfortunately, it backfired and became so smelly, he could hardly stand it. His dad and sister attempted a homemade gift as well but theirs failed also. So at the end, they gave his mother a surprise the whole family would enjoy.

    12. Sam wants to make a special gift for his mother’s birthday and decides to make some perfume for her. Whenever he hears her mention a smell she particularly enjoys, he puts it into his perfume bottle. The only problem is that the combination of aromas is starting to smell, well, pretty funky. This book had me literally rolling and holding my stomach from laughing.

    13. I always LOVED this book as a kid, and reading it again as an adult was just as enjoyable. I still found myself giggling as Sam gathered his perfume supplies, and again each time Anastasia recited her awful, awful poem. I have to give this 5 stars due to my childhood love for it, and for how much I still loved it now. It's held up surprisingly well!

    14. In the second book of the Sam Krupnik series, Sam tries to make his mother a birthday present, with disastrous results. Young people will be entertained by the antics of Sam. Older readers will admire the author's ability to write in the first person with a true child's voice. This is a good book to read to kids at bedtime.

    15. I always wanted to join the Krupnik family when I was reading and re-reading all the Anastasia books as a teenager, and found those same feelings coming back as I read this one aloud to my little boys. They enjoyed it and so did I.

    16. Well, once I start something, I may as well finish it. This is a worthy sequel to All About Sam. It's a bit more focused than the last, but then again four/five year olds are more focused than, say, infants.

    17. I don't remember when we read this but it had to be somewhere b/t the ages of 5 and 8. It is a funny story!

    18. Cute but far more contrived than the Anastasia books. Sam's voice is pretty authentic, however, and I do like his mom.

    19. Really fun book, very revealing of the way boys in general seem to think. Funny too, especially when it comes to, er, perfume making and the acquisition of kittens. :)

    20. I read this to my 4yo (whose mane is Sam) and my 7yo, and we really enjoyed it. The beginning and the end of the book had us in fits of laughter. this is definitely great as a read-out-loud book.

    21. One thing I definitely don't mind about my job is being "forced" to re-read some of my old favorites to review in our newsletter.

    22. Read out loud to my kids.Sam makes homemade perfume for his mom's birthday and inadvertently concocts the world's most disgusting beer.

    24. This kid is sooooooo cute! Seriously, this book is written by an adult, but she captures a child's mind so well :)
