Publisher's Summary

Alvin Ho is an Asian-American second grader who is afraid of everything: elevators, tunnels, girls, and, most of all, school. He's so afraid of school that, while he's there, he never, ever, says a word. But at home he's a very loud superhero named Firecracker Man, a brother to Calvin and Anibelly, and a gentleman-in-training, so he can be just like his dad.

Great Read Aloud for Grade 3

I used this audio book as a read aloud for summer school. I projected the book on the board as the narrator (an adorable kid!) read it. The kids really liked the book and always looked forward to coming to the rug to listen to a chapter. My class did a project to do a review and presentation of the book at the end of summer school. All the kids voted and gave it a total of 3.8 stars! Most of them really liked it. I teach ESL so a few of the kids liked it less, but I think that was because it was a bit above their level. Great for 3rd graders!
