    1. Reviewed for THC ReviewsEven though Philip Hall Likes Me. I Reckon Maybe. was a Newbery Honor Book back in 1975 (when I was a kid), for some reason, I had never heard of it until recently. I probably never would have found it on my own if I hadn't been introduced to Bette Greene through her wonderful young adult novel, Summer of My German Soldier. After reading that and its sequel I decided to check out Ms. Greene's other works. I'm so glad I did, because my exploration led me to this wonderful [...]

    2. My mother has an autographed copy of this book that she got from an ALA conference in the '70s. When I was a little kid, I would always pull it from the shelves, look at the inscription, and put it back. I never actually thought about reading it. I was too intimidated by the shiny silver medal on the front cover. The thick, buttery pages seemed to say, "For adults only." Finally, when I was about 12, I took the copy of Philip Hall Likes Me, I Reckon Maybeoff the shelf again. It was summer, and I [...]

    3. This novel takes place in Pocahontas, Arkansas. The main protagonist is Elizabeth Lambert (Beth). She is in the sixth grade. She has a deep crush on one of her classmates, Philip Hall. Of course, Philip is not yet interested in girls. Elizabeth will do anything to make him like her such as letting Philip be the best student in the class. Beth had great perseverance. She never gave up on anything. Beth was not a jealous person. But, Philip was jealous of Beth when she finally beat him at the end [...]

    4. “Even Growing Up Is a Competition” Pocahontas, Arkansas in the 70’s was an interesting place for kids to grow up, as readers are treated to a year in the life of 11-year old Beth Lambert. Middle girl in a modest black family this spunky gal considers herself no one’s inferior—not even her neighbor, Mr. Everything, Philip Hall. President of the 4-H club and nonchalant about being top dog in their class, Philip cons admiring Beth into doing his chores on his father’s dairy farm. So ho [...]

    5. It's been a long time since I read this bookI must have been about nine or tenbut I remember liking it so much that I had to get the sequel (Get On Out of Here, Philip Hall) because I wasn’t quite ready to put these characters back on the dusty bookshelf. I read them again and again and again.I liked the book because it transported me to rural Arkansas, which was not a place I was particularly anxious to visit in real life, but it reminded me of the stories my father told me about his childhoo [...]

    6. Just okay for me. I don't know if I can explain it more than that. It starts off just jumping straight into these characters' lives, which didn't work for me. I needed more time to get to know them!

    7. Elizabeth Lorraine (Beth) Lambert is an eleven-year-old girl who lives with her father, mother, older brother Luther, older sister Anne, and baby brother Benjamin on a pig and poultry farm in rural Randolph County near Pocahontas, AR. Philip Hall, who lives with his family on the neighboring dairy farm, is the cutest, smartest boy in the sixth grade, and Beth likes him. She reckons that he likes her too.

    8. Book reviewDoes Philip Hall like Beth Lambert?

    9. I remember seeing this book on the shelf in my elementary school library. It would have been a newly released book then. Even though I was a fan of Bette Greene and lived in Arkansas, it never really appealed to me. So I finally read it for the first time 40 years later. I wish I had read it sooner. What a wonderful book. Only one four letter word (d#+%) and no violence or sexual references or any of the other issues commonly seen in today's children and young adult books. Just a fun, lovely sto [...]

    10. Beth Lambert is in love with Philip Hall, the boy next door and the number one student in her class. Set in rural, 1930's Pocahontas, Arkansas, Beth's African American family is supportive, funny, and loving. Beth helps her father discover who's stealing their turkeys, raises a calf for the 4-H contest, opens a vegetable stand to raise money for her future education, and stands up to the pressures that boy-girl friendships face in middle school. This is a great book for 4th and 5th graders; Beth [...]

    11. Continuing my quest to read all Newbery award winning books, this honor book of 1975 left me pondering how it was chosen as a recipient.Clearly, it is not of Newbery status! Set in rural Arkansas, this is a tale of witty, intelligent Beth Lambert who is #2 in the class. She is in love with Philip Hall, the #1 smartest boy in the class.Like many who want to be loved, the scale is not balanced and Beth overly compromises in order to gain Philip's affection.In the end, she becomes #1 in her class a [...]

    12. I probably read this book four or five times as a kid, but had forgotten about it until browsing a Newbery list. I was very curious to read it again, because I have such vivid memories of feeling a close kinship to the main character. I was a white girl growing up in a middle-class house in downtown Toronto in the 90s. Beth is an African-American girl growing up on a poultry farm in rural Arkansas in the 70s. Would this feeling of connection make sense, reading it twenty years later?And it absol [...]

    13. I thought that this was a fun book. It isn't really one but rather a collection of 6 or 7 different stories, though sequentially and slightly building off of each other. In each one Beth learns a little more about life and how to be brave and go about being the best she can be. Naturally, Philip Hall is a side-character in each of these stories.Now, if I were a 14-year-old girl, when I read this book I would be thinking that every story ends just the way it should. And I would be thinking for ha [...]

    14. Philip Hall is the cutest, smartest boy in the sixth grade, and Beth Lambert loves him. The fact that he beats her in classwork, sports, and almost everything else doesn't bother Beth at first. Then she realizes that Philip might be best because she's letting him beat her. Beth knows that she deserves to be Number One--and she's going to prove it! This funny, universal story of a girl learning that she matters in the world has delighted readers for over twenty years."Beth Lambert is an energetic [...]

    15. This was a blast from the past. Mrs. Gruver (or was it Mrs. Kemp?) read this aloud to me in the fifth grade. I remember loving it then and it did not disappoint this time around. It was a lovely read-aloud to share with Kate. Beth is a strong, smart, capable 12-year-old who struggles to achieve her full potential without upsetting her rival and secret crush, Philip Hall. This book was published in the early seventies and confronted many of the male/female stereotypes of the previous decades. The [...]

    16. Beth Lambert is the second-best student in her class. Philip Hall is the first-best student. Beth's family thinks Beth might be letting Philip Hall be first just because she likes him. This is a nice and quick Newbery-honor winner about Beth, her family, and friends as she solves the case of the missing turkeys, discovers an unwanted allergy to puppies, welcomes a new little brother into the family, and learns to be her best even if it means being better than Philip Hall. While I did enjoy readi [...]

    17. This was a cute, light read. It's about two colored kids, a boy and a girl. The girl is president of a club called the Pretty Pennys and the boy is leader of the Tiger Hunters Club. These two are always competing. The girl really think he's something, until he riles her up and she calls him a low-down polecat. There are tales of a roadside vegetable stand they own and run to help her raise money for college, raising 4H calves, and other funny stories. I love the language of the colored people us [...]

    18. A very cute book, I was lucky to get an E-galley to read and the illustrations were fantastic definitely for the younger crowd, I see this book teaching my future kids not to sacrifice anything for a boy and learning to learn being strong. This book will identify with all the younger kids set in rural Arkansas we see young Beth learn what a typical male adolescent, namely Phillip Hall is like and what it takes to be "grown up". A totally cute read that will make its way on my paper book shelf.

    19. The plot of this book set in Arkansas is minimal but somehow enjoyable. Beth Lambert is an 11-year-old girl who struggles with boys. The use of region-specific words (chilluns, polecat) may be confusing to some readers. Beth is a believable girl, and the reader can relate to her. There is one full page of black and white ‘summarizing’ illustration per chapter. Very “Brady Bunch” ending, but is that always bad?

    20. I read this for my summer reading book report and I really enjoyed reading this book because I could just picture the scenes in my head(the ones without a picture anyway) and bette greene used such amazig dicription words like I said i could just see it. I recemond this book tho everyone I know!!!!!! the nly thing I didnt like is that it an older book and i harly understood some of the words, and i had to ask my mother what the meant. but other than that i loved it!

    21. Beth Lambert, an eleven-year-old African-American girl who is the daughter of a turkey farmer in rural Arkansas, humorously tells her story of her crush on schoolmate Philip Hall, who is the smartest boy in the class; that is, if Beth lets him be the smartest. Each of Greene's chapters are humorously written, and each one tells a different story that can almost stand alone. Lilly’s pictures are striking. Good choice, both as a read aloud and as a booktalk, for 5th grade and up.

    22. The plot of this book set in Arkansas is minimal but somehow enjoyable. Beth Lambert is an 11-year-old girl who struggles with boys. The use of region-specific words (chilluns, polecat) may be confusing to some readers. Beth is a believable girl, and the reader can relate to her. There is one full page of black and white ‘summarizing’ illustration per chapter. Very “Brady Bunch” ending, but is that always bad?

    23. The plot of this book set in Arkansas is minimal but somehow enjoyable. Beth Lambert is an 11-year-old girl who struggles with boys. The use of region-specific words (chilluns, polecat) may be confusing to some readers. Beth is a believable girl, and the reader can relate to her. There is one full page of black and white ‘summarizing’ illustration per chapter. Very “Brady Bunch” ending, but is that always bad?

    24. This book brings back a lot of memories. When I was in fifth grade, my English class read this book under the guidence of Ms. James. Because of this book, my class received our first pen pals. We lived in Pocahontas Arkansas, and another English class wrote to us asking about the Randolph County Fair.

    25. I read this book for the obvious reason (actually, Phillip bought it for me one Christmas because of the title - lol!, however, I quickly realized that the title wasn't the only good thing about this book! A perfect read for grade school age girls (or those of us who are still a child at heart!) who love tales of adventurous, smart girls.

    26. Clean. This is written in a short story type format - each chapter could stand alone while it also contains threads of a consistent theme. For readers who struggle to focus through novels, this might help them bridge the gap between short fiction and longer works. It is also a cultural journey through 1960s African-American family and community life in the country.

    27. This is a humorous story told from the point of view of Beth Lambert, a spunky black girl from Arkansas. Kids will enjoy reading it because of Beth's unpredictable nature. They will want to cheer for her as she rids the small town of Pocahontas from such injustices as, livestock theft, and crooked store owners. In short, Beth Lambert is a likable, irresistable herione that kids will love.

    28. This is a sweet, short Newbery Honor book about a smart, spunky black girl growing up in Arkansas. Given the time period, I was a bit surprised that she didn't run into at least some prejudice. But it is a nice little book--engaging heroine and good values. A good read for me while I've been sick with the flu.

    29. I loved the writing in this book -- the author's descriptions, voice, and characters just drew me in. I always remember this title as a child, but never picked up the book to read. I loved the sweet story of spunky Beth and all of the emotions of growing up. Some stories are the ones that seem better to read as adults, rather than as a child. Highly recommended!!
