Generous Mr. Panda is giving away presents to all his animal friends, including a mouse, an octopus, an elephant, and a lemur, but they aren't being very grateful about the gifts they receive. It may be because the presents aren't quite right. Mouse receives a sweater that's too big, and Octopus gets six colorful socks even though he has eight legs. Fortunately, thoughtful little Lemur knows that even if the present isn't perfect, it's the thought that counts most of all.Just as Mr. Panda introduced good manners in Please, Mr. Panda and the importance of being patient in I'll Wait, Mr. Panda, Thank You, Mr. Panda is a graphic, kid-friendly way of teaching little ones the importance of saying "thank you" and recognizing that it's the thought that counts most of all behind every gift.

Kindergarten has never been funnier with the launch of this new, strong-willed character, in the style of Ladybug Girl, Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, and Bread and Jam for Frances.

Amanda Panda has BIG ideas for her first day of school. But when things don’t go according to plan, and when a pesky girl in a pink bow decides to be her best friend, she walks out on kindergarten and joins her brother in second grade. It takes an unlikely partner to fix Amanda’s terrible day—and to teach her about friendship, tolerance, and how to cope with life’s ups and downs.
 
Amanda Panda perfectly captures the spirit, motivations, and humor of a headstrong five-year-old girl—and will be sure to soothe back-to-school jitters.

"a sweet story about the power of kindness and getting past first impressions."—The Washington Post

"Empathy and kindness are just as important as ABCs and 123s, and Amanda gives readers a good lesson."—Kirkus

"Filled with droll humor that begs to be read aloud, this is an excellent back-to-school purchase and a great fit for storytime."—School Library Journal

"With strong dialogue and well-imagined details of wardrobe and play, Ransom writes an original story around the familiar situation: the beginning of school. . . . This wryly amusing picture book offers a fresh take on an old theme."—Booklist

"The lesson makes an impact without preaching, and kids are likely to want to revisit this one, especially as the first day of school approaches."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Bright, fresh illustrations fill the pages of this adorable book about disappointment, friendship, and kindness."—ReadBrightly.com
In the hilarious follow-up to Amanda Panda Quits Kindergarten, strong, sassy, and funny Amanda Panda is having a birthday crisis!

Amanda Panda's birthday is tomorrow. She'll be the first kid in her class to turn six! But when she gets to the bus stop, her best friend/worst enemy Bitsy announces that today is HER birthday! And her party is planned for Saturday, the same day as Amanda's!

Birthday dreams ruined, Amanda's can't keep her temper in check at school. By recess, it looks like Amanda's birthday plans—and her friendship with Bitsy—is over. But when the girls stop arguing long enough to listen to each other, they come up wtih a birthday plan that is TWICE the fun.

Young children will learn about sharing, compromise, and conflict resolution, all the while laughing along with Amanda and Bitsy in this adorable, school-based story from a new favorite character.

Reminiscent of the strength and charm of Russell and Lillian Hoban's Frances the Badger, Lilly of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, and Peggy Rathmann's Ruby the Copycat, veteran children's author Candice Ransom has perfectly captured the spirit, motivations, and voice of a headstrong five-(almost-six)-year-old girl.

"A sweet celebration of friendship and the drama of kindergarten."—Kirkus 

"Text and illustrations work harmoniously to capture the feelings of disappointment when faced with the sticky situation of having a birthday party on the same day as a classmate, and all the worries that come with it. . . .  A sweet story on a familiar birthday party conundrum faced by many school-age children and their parents."—School Library Journal
