In this sweet story, Maggie does not know what to bring when her teacher plans a “Summer vacation
show-and-tell.” Some of Maggie’s friends have exciting tales to tell about their summer travels, and
interesting souvenirs to show to the class. These souvenirs range from the more traditional (postcards)
to the more exotic (poison dart frog). But Maggie’s family didn’t go on a trip and she thinks she has 
nothing to share.

The depth of Maggie’s emotions about the upcoming show-and-tell is evident in both the text and 
illustrations. While her friends are drawing pictures of the things they plan to bring, Maggie draws 
“a big fat zero.” In the accompanying picture, her eyes are downcast, her face is flooded with sadness.

Contrasted with Maggie’s misery when she thinks about show-and-tell is her joy when she is with her
dog, Trooper. When her beloved pet kisses her cheek later in the evening, Maggie’s giggles almost
jump off the page!

Maggie and the Summer Vacation Show-and-Tell is a wonderfully-written picture book. My little one
 saw the cover and begged to read it with me. She was very engaged as we read, telling Maggie what 
she should and should not do, expressing affection in response to pictures of Trooper, and exclaiming
her surprise at certain points in the book.

I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.
