Synopsis

When you're in the second grade, you learn new things every day.

Before Ms. Jones's class, Andrew didn't know how to spell “neighborhood,” how to subtract 348 from 411, how to write in cursive, how to read a chapter book, or how to play the xylophone.

But now that he has graduated from second grade, he knows how to do all of these things -- and more!

Every year in school is a significant building block for the next. In this book Amy Schwartz captures the magic of learning and growing during one of the most important years -- second grade.
