The second book in the Nora Notebooks finds Nora Alpers in unfamiliar territory. Nora Alpers has just become a ten-year-old aunt. To prepare for the new arrival, Nora has been writing down baby-related facts in her special tebook, just like she does with her favorite subject: ants. She likes the idea that someone who studies the A-N-Tis also an A-U-N-T, even though she doesn t kw anything about taking care of babies. A new family member isn t the only thing stressing Nora out. At school, Nora has to write journals in the voice of a pioneer on the Oregon Trail and prepare for the annual science fair. Science is rmally Nora s best subject until Nora ends up being paired with science-hating, cat-obsessedEmma! How will Nora ever learn to be a good aunt if she s trying to survive the Oregon Trail and arguing against Emma s unscientific science-fair ideas? Readers will welcome the return of Nora who Publishers Weekly called delightful[ly] enterprising in a starred review.
