Harriet and the Roller Coaster: 12/22/09
My Harriet received Harriet and the Roller Coaster as a birthday present since she adores Harriet's Recital. Her birthday book has become an instant favorite which we've read many times.
In this book Harriet seems to be a little older. She's in school now and for a field trip she and her friends are going to an amusement park. George brags to how brave he's going to be on the roller coaster that he scares Harriet to the point that she doesn't want to try it.
Harriet though, as you'll remember from Harriet's Recital, she's capable of over coming her fear even if it does eat her up for an entire night and day. She's no different with the roller coaster. In fact, she gets a chance to one up George but in a good natured and humorous way.

Harriet's Halloween Candy was one of my favorite books when I was a child. Even though my family didn't trick or treat and rarely ate candy....maybe that's why it was my favorite!

We haven't read Harriet's Halloween Candy yet. Our library seems to have a large collection of Carlson's books so maybe they have that one too. Thank you for the recommendation.
