    1. I like it because it's funny and has gila monsters. They don't really meet you at the airport, I know that because I also moved from the east to the west. I like friends and so I liked reading about how Seymour and his friend, who like to eat salami together. This book is about friendship and its message is "don't be afraid when you move to a new place to live!" - Eva


    2. This book was introduced to me by Reading Rainbow in my childhood. It was one of my favorite Reading Rainbow episodes. I also devoured the book a few times off screen back then, but I realized I've never written a review for it. So today I re-visited this old friend.A boy is moving with his family from the East (which looks like New York City) out West. At first the boy is in denial about moving. He starts listing his worries and sharing his vision for what life will be like out West. (Much of w [...]


    3. This is a cute book that has a moral, "Don't believe everything you hear; find out for yourself before you judge it.". It's about a boy who had to move from the east, New York to way out west and he wasn't looking forward to it at all. He was afraid of what he had heard about the west. While he was at the airport, he met a boy from out west who had to move to New York. This boy heard terrible things about New York. This is a good read aloud and reread. It could also be a good witing prompt idea. [...]


    4. A New York boy's stereotypes of the West are shot down after he moves there, as well as for a boy who moves to New York from the West. Entertaining.


    5. Provocative title. Cute book. Moving is hard, and we carry a lot of ideas ahead of time about what our new home will be like.Ideal ages 5-9.


    6. This book is about misconceptions people have about people, places, and culture. I could relate with the book from the perspective of reader response theory questions.I connected to the story because I moved to Arizona from California. Although I knew and I had visited Arizona many years ago, I still had to encounter some of the misconceptions about this state. One of them was there are no trees in Arizona only cacti.At the begining of my reading, this book made me feel uncomfortable because it [...]


    7. Gila Monsters Meet You At the Airport by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat, illustrated by Byron Barton is a funny, clever look at a child's fears reqarding moving. In this case the boy has preconceived notions of how strange his new city in the West will be compared to his home in the Eastern US. He fears there will be no baseball, because they're too busy chasing buffalo. He's sure there is cactus everywhere, everyone talks s l o w l y, and that he'll have to ride a horse to school. He's worried about [...]


    8. What a classic! What a beautiful classic. Marjorie Weinman Sharmat's Gila Monsters Meet You at the Airport is another one of my all-time childhood favorites. I can remember reading this wonderful, colorful picture book in my elementary school's second floor library back in early 1981, and developing somewhat of a crush on the hat-wearing boy who acts as its narrator/protagonist. I thought he was so cute; I dreamt about him. But hey, I was only nine.Parents and librarians, please introduce your c [...]


    9. A boy's family is moving away from New York City on the East coast of the U.S.A. to out west. The boy is less than thrilled about this, and shares all the things he's heard about the West, which causes him to dread the change even more. However, a chance encounter helps him have a better outlook on the move. This is a book I remember seeing on Reading Rainbow ages ago, and loving when I was a kid, though I didn't remember a lot of the story. It does hold up for re-reading and I think the fears e [...]


    10. A boy wants to stay in the home he knows and loves but his parents move him out West. Throughout the book he describes what he believes about the West. Then he meets a boy at the airport who is moving East and he listens to that boy describe what he believes about people out East. Once he arrives out West he realizes things aren't all bad. This book would be good for educators to use when introducing a Flat Stanley or pen-pal unit to late Elementary students. They could predict what they believe [...]


    11. Illustrator: Byron BartonAge: ElementarySummary: A New York City boy's preconceived ideas of life in the West make him apprehensive about the family's move there.Applications/Uses: Exploring the differences between city and desert life, the animals found in those different areas, and what is the difference between expectations and what will really be in a different part of the world, it could also just be a good story to have if a student moves into or out of your classroom (town) to read to kno [...]


    12. This is a humorous tale about misperceptions of living in different parts of the country. The concept would hold true for overseas places as well, and I liked how we experience what's imagined and what's real throughout the story. I also liked that the boy moving to the East had equally preposterous notions of life in New York City. The narrative is fairly short and the illustrations are humorous and cartoonish. We enjoyed reading this book together.


    13. Interest Level: Ages K-5Reading Level: Ages 3 to up Lexile Reading Level: AD560LDelicately illustrated to catch young audience's attention. Perfect to create cultural awareness (within national cultures and to reduce anxiety when moving to a new place. Easy and fun wording, understandable even by the youngest kids.


    14. This book tackles the idea of moving in a way that I think a kid would understand. As the country, and the whole world, become more connected, I think that a lot of the exaggerations and misunderstandings about different geographical areas are lessening, but they are still there, and the anxiety about moving to a new place never really goes away.


    15. I borrowed this from the library when I was looking for stories that showed kids being strong in the face of change, or getting over fears of not being able to deal with something. This one does that. It's a brief book with cute illustrations about a boy moving from one area of the United States to another. My seven-year-old liked it.


    16. This was a pretty cute book and it had a lesson. It's lesson was that you can't judge something until you've tried it or in the books case, you can't judge a place until you've been there. The main character judged the south before going there and then found out it wasn't at all like what he had originally thought.


    17. Cute but somehow it's like an angel for Solomon singer turned backwards and told from the perspective of a boy not an old man. And I grabbed these two books at random from a shelf at the library. Weird!


    18. Forever etched in my mind is a Reading Rainbow episode, with LeVar Burton, featuring this book. It's a pretty good book though not deserving of the praise heaped upon it by Mr. Burton.


    19. Great little book to counter some of the preconceived ideas we often form when heading into a new situation or location.


    20. A friend told me this was her favorite childhood book (or at least one that stuck in her memory). It's a good one, dealing with misconceptions of people and places.




    21. A cute book about geographic stereotypes, and I don't think kids get the concept of dated, so probably it's fine, although it looks distinctly old to me.


    22. This picture book reminds me of how some people think that everyone from Texas is a cowboy! It's a pretty good book, but not great.





    23. really enjoyedthis book about a boy's misconceptions of what people "out west" are liked this is the 5000 book i've rated. glad it was one of the good ones in today's stack.


    24. This is the other fugitive library book. It's not as good as Bagdad Ate It but we still feel we need o get our money's worth!
