No, it's not the Year of the Rabbit or the Year of the Dragon.

Think Beverly Cleary's Ramona for a new generation. 
This book follows Billy's year in second grade through 4 parts: Teacher, Father, Sister, and Mother. From his initial worry about the bump on his head affecting his schoolwork, his wonderful stay-at-home artist Papa, his frustration with his little sister's constant adorable intervention, to the poem he writes for his Mama, you'll love reading about Billy and his family.
Perfect for early chapter book readers and a wonderful family read aloud.
