Product Description


“It is an impressive feat when just a few short sentences can relay the complicated relationship dynamics as perceived by a first-grader, but Greene does it again and again as she chronicles Posey’s emotional endeavors with tenderness and compassion. Young readers will relate to Posey’s need to feel special in the eyes of one she admires, and they’ll be delighted when she finds a way to do so while remaining true to herself.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“Greene continues to get the social dynamic of first-grade girls perfect. . . . Very short chapters, generous font, lots of eye-saving white space on each page and frequent black-and-white illustrations make this early chapter book accessible to the very earliest reader. Posey is flawed in a way that is absolutely perfect. She struggles with her emotions and finds her way back with the help of her mother, teacher and small circle of buddies.” — Kirkus Reviews

"Once again, Greene’s brief chapters capture a first grader’s enthusiasm, small but real heartache, and problem-solving gumption--thank goodness for that pink tutu that turns Posey into Princess Posey, who 'wouldn’t cry if someone gave the same present. She would just think of another present.'" — The Horn Book

5.0 out of 5 stars The Princess Posey series make great 'first' chapter books Sept. 30 2011
By Z Hayes - Published on
Format: Paperback
Choosing the right books with a high interest factor is important in making the transition from beginning/ early readers to chapter books. My first grader loved these books based on a precocious little first grader named Posey. The sentences are a bit more complex than those found in the beginning readers, but simple enough to make the transition to chapter books a breeze. There are some interesting illustrations found throughout the book to motivate young readers and keep them engaged.

This story deals with an upcoming event in Posey's classroom - Ms. Lee's (the teacher) birthday. Posey is determined to give Ms. Lee the perfect present. Along the way, Posey ends up hurting her best friend Nikki's feelings. Can Posey set things right? Young children will easily identify themselves with some of the young characters in this book.

The vocabulary is simple and appropriate for first graders but for those looking for a more challenging read for advanced readers in first grade, I would suggest checking out the following, all of which engaged my daughter's attention:

The Judy Moody Star-Studded Collection: Books 1-3
Cam Jansen: Cam Jansen and the Summer Camp Mysteries: A Super Special & the rest of the books in the series
Ivy & Bean's Secret Treasure Box (Books 1-3)
Sleepover Sleuths (Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew #1) & others in the series
Tink in a Fairy Fix (Disney Fairies A Stepping Stone Book(TM)) & the rest in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars More Princess Posey July 19 2011
By Heidi Grange - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This series makes a great introduction to chapter books for kids in 1st grade. As a librarian, I am always looking for books that make the transition from early readers to chapter books a fun experience, and these books fit the bill. The illustrations do a fine job of breaking up the text, so it is not so intimidating to read. And the smooth writing makes for a great read-a-loud. I plan to use these with my upcoming first graders.

While these books seem to be girly books, Posey does like to pretend she is a princess after all, but there is much that boys can relate to as well, such as being teased and facing fears. The questions for discussion at the back of the first book provide a nice way to get kids talking and the craft at the end of the second book is perfect for girls reading on their own to attempt (a magic wand). Highly recommended for students who are ready for chapter books and a character they can relate to. (I doubt however, that many boys will pick these up on their own, the titles and covers are definitely aimed at girls.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner June 13 2014
By mimijudy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My granddaughter has just finished kindergarten and has really gotten into reading chapter books. After much research and careful consideration, I picked her a couple of the Princess Posey books. It was a great choice. She LOVES them and has literally devoured these books - reading 1or 2 each week. I highly recommend them for girls just beginning chapter books.

4.0 out of 5 stars I adore Princess Posey and so do my daughters! Feb. 26 2014
By AnnaMarie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
These are some of the best books written for pubescent girls. My children love reading them out loud because they get excited about the events taking place. When a book keeps kids excited enough they'd rather read than be watching tv or playing electronics, I'm thrilled.
I recommend this for all with daughters ages 9 to 13...Good stuff!
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding and captured the heart of a girl! Jan. 3 2015
By Jack Tan - Published on
Format: Paperback
Miss Lee's, Posey's teacher, birthday has arrived. Posey wanted to give her an unforgettable and special present so that she would be impressed and knew that Posey loved her. She plucked 5 roses from her garden and carefully wrapped them up. However, she was shocked and disappointed that Nikki, her best friend, had given Miss Lee a bouquet of flowers ahead of her. She lamented her lost opportunity and told Nikki off against her consciousness. Adult could learn from Posey's mum on how she gave Posey a listening ear without advice and guided her to think up a win-win solution.
