Scooter Boy is a delightful picture book. The main character Cal relates his first-person account of being the last kindergartener to be picked up from school on a hot August afternoon. He is hot, tired and cranky and he lets the reader know his thoughts. He thinks he’s too old to have a nanny, but that is who arrives to pick him up, and he’s not happy. When the nanny puts the scooter on the ground, he jumps on it and his escapade begins. He is Scooter Boy. The thoughts that go through Cal’s head as he tells the story, are funny and relatable to nearly every child. This very enjoyable and funny book is ideal for reading aloud and for emerging readers.

Scooter Boy makes you feel the adventure of a young Southern California boy along with his dog Bo in a chase with his Anya Wanna Be Nanny after him. You can feel the action of shooting the hoops and seeing Scooter Boy with his L.A. Dodger cap on reverse atop his head. And it is lucky that Scooter Boy knows how to jump with his scooter. My brothers and I had a great laugh with our nephews. We are looking forward to the Tate's granddaughters in a story.
Scooter Boy is a magical, rollicking, and hilarious story of a Southern California young boy who stands waiting alone at the end of the school day… and its Friday! His bros are probably already practicing their hoops, and Cal is stuck at school. When his nanny, or “wanna-be-nanny” appears the fun begins. Cal takes matters into his own five-year-old hands, and as a result, learns a valuable lesson of judging a person (or misjudging a person) based upon their appearance. The illustrations, along with the ultra-cool Cal, will delight your child’s senses, make them roar with laughter, and secretly wish Cal lived next door. Please, Connie Tate, we need more Cal adventures.
