"Posey is the perfect fictional friend for any first-grade girl."—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Princess Posey and the First Grade Parade: Book 1 (Princess Posey, First Grader #1)

"Six-year-old Posey, in a sparkly pink tutu on the cover, will catch the attention of young emerging readers. Like Miss Lee's invitation, this new chapter book series will be warmly received by youngsters looking for something comfortable and familiar to begin with." — The Horn Book

"This is a sweet book, and children will relate to the child’s fears about her new experience and leaving her security tutu behind. There’s also a confidence-building ending in which the new first graders are encouraged to be true to themselves." — School Library Journal

"Greene’s simple sentences are distinguished by punchy dialogue and sentiments that do justice to a range of emotions, from frustration and nervousness to unadulterated glee. They should go a long way to easing the worries of readers embarking on a new stage in their school life." — Publisher's Weekly
