Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer TKono
"Emma Dilemma and the Camping Nanny" by Patricia Hermes is about a little girl with a nanny she adores. Then, one day, the nanny gets a significant other. This makes Emma insecure and afraid that the nanny will forget about her. Also, to add to stress, Emma is having trouble when her best friend acquires a new friend. To top it all off, Emma finds herself lying and breaking rules. The ending is satisfactory, but the plot, conflict, and resolution are what really draw the reader in.
While the title mentions camping, the actual camping itself is only a small segment of the book. The bulk of the story revolves around Emma and her issues. This book has great lessons for young children. Through the adventures of Emma, readers learn that people can love more than one person at the same time. This can relate to parents not picking favorites and friends expanding their influence to include someone new. This story is great for young readers, boys and girls alike.
