Feb 07, Reed S rated it it was amazing. I really like this book because when something bad happens there is something good to replace it such as when she looses her baby-sitter and then over time she starts to like her new baby sitter. It is also very descriptive because it goes over words more than once in different text around it. This book is told in 1st person and I usually like these types of books because its usually much more detailed and descriptive I recently finished reading Like Pickle Juice On A Cookie by: Julie Sternberg.
This book is told in 1st person and I usually like these types of books because its usually much more detailed and descriptive about the character that the book is mainly about. This book relates to me because I used to have an old friend who lived right next door and he moved away so this was hard to get used to but then someone else moved in and it turned out I liked them a lot too, so I know what it felt like for Eleanor when her baby-sitter moved away.
At first I didn't like this book because it was kind of depressing in a slight way but when Bibi got a baby sitter and it lightened up more. This book also reminds me of a movie called Beast of the Southern Wild and in the movie a little girls dad dies and they make as sad as possible. You should read this book!

Eleanor had her sitter for whole life and is definitely not ready for her to go now. I thought that the way she waited and waited was a really good part to the story.

She would be someone I wouldn't mind having as a friend. If there is one thing that I would like to Change about this book it is the length.

The story reminds me of my cousin who always comes to town and wants to try something new. When Elenor is with Natalie, everyday is an adventure because they are trying something new. I think this story would be really hard to write only in poetry because you cannot use as many words to tell your story. I highly recommend this book for everyone because about how to deal with change and trust new people. May 22, Gail rated it liked it.

It is also a bluebonnet. In my opinion it's a very good book, not only because it is short. But, even though it is short, doesn't mean it's not a chapter book, the words are big so there are a lot of pages. I like this book because it really relates to me and I understand what is going on. The main character, well I haven't got to the part where I had her name but the main character and I have many things in common such as we both had pets that ran away or IDE, and we both had our parents invite someone over to play that we don't even like.

Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie (Eleanor)
In this book the girls baby sitter moves away. She is unable to get over it. I think that if I were to have my baby sitter move away to help her sick mother I would be sad for a while then get over it in a few days. This book has verry few words and lacks deatail. It was a verry childish book and could be inproved in many ways including deatail because it needs more discripton. It needs more evedince why her baby sitter was spe I have recently read Julie Sternbergs Like Pickle Juice on a cookie. It needs more evedince why her baby sitter was special an why at first was she was unwilling to get a new one.
I dont think you should wast the ten minuts it takes to read this book.

Read To Them
Really short, but it happened to me so I got the story. Aug 07, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: realistic-fiction. This story is about an eight year old girl named Eleanor who finds out in August that her beloved babysitter, Bibi, is moving to Florida to take care of her elderly father. Eleanor had such a great strong bond with Bibi and is determined that no other babysitter can replace Bibi. She had so many experiences with Bibi and now that Bibi is gone, she does not enjoy those activities anymore. Eleanor has to come to terms about not having Bibi around and starts building her relationship with Natalie and understand that not all relationships will have the same meaning.
With each passing day, Eleanor starts to create new memories with Natalie. Along with the change in babysitters, Eleanor will be starting the third grade very soon. Eleanor had a lot of growth This story is what I would consider an realistic fiction early chapter book, with very short chapters and illustrations. From a realistic fiction standpoint, most children can relate to changes that happen to them that disrupt and upset their life and the emotions that are tied to those changes. It could be the change in the babysitter or a parent going back to work. The illustrations in the book accentuate the feelings Eleanor is going through even if the words do not explain the feelings.
In chapter three, she is going through the emotions of accepting that Bibi is leaving. The first illustrations, she is standing with her arms crossed and you see that she is mad. The second illustration she is laying on the floor and starting to cry. The last illustration she is sitting on the floor just crying. Children can connect with Eleanor and her struggle of life changes, ideally the struggles of growing up. This book would be appropriate for grades first through fourth.
The chapters are very short which encourages children that chapter books are not as overwhelming. And the illustrations are fun to interpret as well. The strength in this book is the combination the simplistic words, the illustrations, and the simple message about growing up.
Children experience life changes and struggle to understand why change is necessary. This is especially true when children start school and begin to see their world changing and feel like they have no control over the changes. Jan 23, Jared Kling rated it liked it Shelves: verse-novel. As we all know especially children and most adults do not adapt well to change. This was no different for Eleanor who had become very close with Bibi and cared for her very much.
So when the new babysitter Natalie shows up she has no idea what she is in for. I enjoyed this novel because Julie Sternberg really showed the affects that things like this can have an effect on a child. Because of that I can see this book as a really good read for children going through changes in their life to help them be better able to adapt to changes in life. I really enjoyed the illustrations done by Matthew Cordell I believe that they were uplifting and fun while also giving an good visual reference to what is happening in the book.
I believe children would enjoy the illustrations as it compliments the text. Jul 13, Alicea rated it liked it. I am all for works of fantasy and sci-fi to tell stories that pull the reader into different worlds and experiences.
About the author
However, there's something to be said about introducing a piece of realistic fiction to an emerging reader so that they can feel that 'so someone has felt the same things that I have' feeling. When you're growing up, it's so easy to feel isolated and alien. You feel like your problems are huge and that no one could possibly understand your pains, frustrations, or anguish. And then I am all for works of fantasy and sci-fi to tell stories that pull the reader into different worlds and experiences. And then a little book like this one comes along. Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg follows a little girl called Eleanor who experiences suffers abandonment and all the attendant stages of grief that come along after when the babysitter she's had her entire life moves away.
With Eleanor's adjustment to a new babysitter who is wholly different from Bibi, she learns that sometimes change is good and relationships can survive distance. This is a good lesson for us all I think. This book is perfect for the emerging reader probably why it was recommended in Excellent Books for Early and Eager Readers. It's written in short, simple sentences somewhat oddly structured on each page with illustrations by Matthew Cordell liberally spread throughout. Jan 05, Eleanor W rated it really liked it.

She does get a new baby sitter but she is very cautious at first because she isn't interested in replacing Bibi with her new sitter Natalie.
Natalie is very kind and caring and earns the love of Ellie.

Eleanor is eight and right on the cusp of third grade. Bibi leaves her right at the start of the summer vacation, and the summer without her looms ahead for Eleanor. Who will put ice on her arm when she gets hurt? Who will take her for pizza? Everything seems tainted without Bibi, and Eleanor's new babysitter just isn't Bibi!
Sternberg takes Eleanor through this grieving process with great care and detail. Children will no doubt relate to her gentle handling of a sad situation. Eleanor is also very worried about the start of school.
