    1 thought on “My Life in Pictures”

    1. A cute chapter book featuring a Hispanic main character. Bea's best friend moves away, and a monster has moved in next door. Will they become friends?

    2. This is a cute book for second or third graders - girls- using a lot of drawings which helps to support reluctant readers and perhaps inspire doodlers to keep their own picture journal. What I liked about this book is that Bea has a real problem, she relied on her best friend to be her only friend, and when that friend moves away she is lost. Her new neighbor is obnoxious almost to the point of being a bully, but she begins to learn to cope. Her journal shares typical fears and frustrations of e [...]

    3. Awards the book has received (if any)- N/AAppropriate grade level(s) – 1st - 4th gradeOriginal 3-line summary: Bea's neighbor was her best friend until her friend moved away. She was left alone at school with her annoying little brother and an annoying new boy at school. She channels her sadness and frustration through pictures in her journal. Original 3-line review: This book is perfect for emergent readers and teaches children the concepts of a chapter book without being too overwhelming. I [...]

    4. I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It has the feel of a graphic novel/novel hybrid. Definitely for third-graders. The writing was so simple that it was a bit aggravating for me. Also, the ending felt a bit off to me. I didn't understand how the two characters suddenly became friends? So, I honestly don't know how to judge this book.

    5. Beginning chapter book readers will love the combination of words and pictures through which Bea tells her stories, so I see this becoming a popular series in our library. Many of my students will be able to relate to Bea's struggles in coming to terms with her best friend moving away and will be eventually comforted and reassured that friendships can be maintained over time and place.

    6. For fans of My Happy Life -- lots of similarities here -- sweet friendship story, but things change when your best friend moves away.Bea Garcia is an artist, and her drawings illustrate the text. Also incorporates a few Spanish words in the text.

    7. Changes are hard. How to best deal with them is a challenge and Be a does a pretty nice job of this. She draws her way to understanding. I wonder how kids will see themselves in her struggle.

    8. The story is like reading a diary. It shows the main character’s point of view. Great way for kids to step into another person’s shoes.

    9. My son loved it. The story kept us both engaged. The pictures were entertaining. I look forward to the next installment.

    10. Cute, diary- style story which stars a main character who is Hispanic and very relatable to young readers.

    11. Adorable! Bea is a girl who is dealing with changes in her life-and expresses her feelings through pictures. I'd hand this transitional chapter book to any 1st-4th grader!Summary: When budding artist Bea Garcia's best friend moves to Australia and a loud, rambunctious boy moves into her old house, Bea must learn to make new friends.

    12. Graphic Novel-1I would say the Genre for this book would be realistic fiction, although this is very likely to happen in real life, this isn't totally based on a true story. I believe the target audience would be 2nd-4th graders. Text to Self- Growing up, many kids loved to draw and create pictures instead of writing words. In this story that is what Be a does. I always loved to doodle and make pictures when times got tough. Bea draws all the time and especially when her best friend moves to Aus [...]

    13. Poor Bea! Her best friend has just moved away to Australia, all the way across the globe. Bea is heartbroken. To make matters worse, a weasel of a kid has moved next door into Yvonne’s old house and he’s ruining everything.This was an interesting book to read as an adult and a teacher. I got how upset Bea was and how she didn’t know how to process her feelings. I think we’ve all felt the heartbreak of a good friendship splitting up, either because someone moves or because people change. [...]

    14. Bea Garcia is upset because her next door neighbor and very best friend in the world, Yvonne, has moved to Australia. To add insult to injury, a new family moves into Yvonne's house, and they have a horrible boy named Bert who makes fun of Bea, wrecks her cardboard box building, and is generally horrible. Bea and her brother Pablo try to ignore Bert as much as possible, but since he is also in her classroom at school, Bea struggles with putting up with him. On the bright side, Bea loves to draw, [...]

    15. Bea will strike a chord with budding artists, through her expressive diary of her young life. Told through cartoon like pictures and a bit of text on every page, Bea tells a story about friendship. When her best friend Yvonne moves away, she is replaced with a bratty neighbor boy whom Bea names the "monster." Her impulsive responses to his teasing often get her in trouble. As she tells each experience in her diary, she adds lots of imaginative visuals and text about what she wishes would happen, [...]

    16. Review originally posted on Children's AtheneumA cute little chapter book, perfect for readers who are transitioning into intermediate books with plenty of pictures for those who aren't quite ready to let go of needing pictures in their books. Bea Garcia has the usual kinds of problems and struggles, which is why she is so relateable. Her friend moving to Australia adds just the right amount of different to give the story some added flavor. The doodles throughout the book are cute and I found my [...]

    17. Full review with teaching tools: unleashingreaders/?p=1I am loving learning more about early middle grade books, and Bea Garcia is going to be a protagonist that will be welcomed in this group of books. Bea will join forces with so many strong girls that 4th through 6th graders can read about. What I love about Bea’s story is that it is one that so many readers will relate to. She deals with losing a best friend and a bully moving into her classroom and neighborhood. She also has a supportive [...]

    18. In this culturally neutral chapter book, Beatrice Holmes Garcia draws the events of her life. Her best friend Yvonne has moved to Australia and Bea misses her terribly. Worse, Bert moves next door and he is a growly, name-calling bully. During a geography lesson, Bea draws cartoons of Bert stranded below sea level, on top of Mount Everest and prone in the desert. She is embarrassed when the teacher shares her drawings with the class. But her artistic talent ("You are an amazing artist!") impress [...]

    19. I appreciated how this book was sweet, hilarious and how it touched upon an important topic all at the same time. Having a best friend move away, especially when you are younger, can be devastating. This book shows Bea's journey in a way that a lot of children may relate to, but it is in a way that produces laughter and provokes thought. In addition, I appreciated how the illustrations captured what was going on in each moment within the book, as well as how they added little snippets of thought [...]

    20. Bea Garcia is the narrator who enumerates her favorite things (her best friend), not-so-favorite things (her best friend moving to Australia, and her nemesis Bert, the new neighbor). Spare text with large-scale, doodly drawings with speech bubbles make this is a good choice for early readers and younger fans of diary books. Bea is a daydreamer whose skill at drawing and imagination is finally recognized by her teacher. It's okay that Bea's doodles are not believable as the creation of a first gr [...]

    21. Book #70 Read in 2016My Life in Pictures by Deborah ZemkeThis is a sort of cool way to introduce younger readers to graphic novels. Bea likes to draw what is happening in her life in her journal. She is a good artist. After her best friend moves away, a boy named Bert moves into her friend's house. Bert becomes the main person Bea draws in her journal the places learned through geography lessons in school. This is a cute read.

    22. Not a book I would normally pick up (the only children's books I read are my old favorites from my own childhood), but I received this as a gift from the author and was excited to check it out. It's a very sweet book, starring Bea Garcia, a talented little misfit who doodles through her feelings. It's a quick read (even for youngsters, I imagine?) and the drawings are super cute.

    23. Not terribly original in its theme--best friend moves away, problem kid moves next door--but the telling is good, the art terrific, and the ending satisfies as Bea is recognized for her art work, finally gets integrated into her class, and learns to deal with the "monster" next door. Probably 3.5 if allowed it, a nice early chapter book.

    24. Nothing stands out. A girl draws a diary of her life. Her best friend moves away and an annoying kid moves in. They have trouble getting along in and out of school until her drawing talent comes to the forefront of the teachers attention.*brother and dog getting stuck in a tree gag was the only part i really likedAge: 6-8

    25. This fun little picture/chapter book is about Bea, who loves to draw and has a best friend who moves away to Australia. The new family that moves in also has a child her age but he is a MONSTER. Bea also struggles with her little brother (he's a pest) but her drawings help her figure things out. This one would make a nice connection with "Like pickle juice on a cookie" by Julie Sternberg.

    26. Bea wants to be an artist when she grows up, and is constantly drawing in a notebook that she takes with her everywhere. But even her notebook isn't solace when her best friend and next door neighbor moves to Australia…

    27. A sweet, gentle story. I appreciate that the author doesn't specify what grade the main character is in, giving the book more high/lo flexibility. Bea Garcia's small struggles with siblings, friendship, and class dynamics are entirely relateable.
