At first she's excited to carry on the family tradition at Camp Wallumwahpuck, but when she gets there she finds icky bugs, terrible food, and worst of all: swim class, where she just can't seem to keep up with everyone else. But as the days go on, Eleanor realizes that even the most miserable situations can be full of special surprises and that growing up is full of belly flops.

When Bibi leaves a new baby-sitter has to come who's name is Natalie, but Eleanor isn't happy about that.

Guess who I just saw in the lobby? he asked. He looked very happy. I couldn’t think of a neighbor who would make him so happy. So I said, Jorge Posada?. My dad loves Jorge Posada. It wasn’t Jorge, he said. From the apartment upstairs. She was there with her mom. I invited her to come play with you. And she’s coming!. My mouth dropped open and I sat straight up and I started shaking my hands at my dad. I don’t like Agnes from upstairs!.

I had a bad August. A very bad August. As bad as pickle juice on a cookie. As bad as a spider web on your leg. As bad as the black parts on a banana.I hope your August was better. I really do.

When Eleanor's beloved babysitter, Bibi, has to move away to take care of her ailing father, Eleanor must try to bear the summer without Bibi and prepare for the upcoming school year. Her new, less-than-perfect babysitter just isn't up to snuff, and she doesn't take care of things like Bibi used to. But as the school year looms, it's time for new beginnings. Eleanor soon realizes that she will always have Bibi, no matter how far away she is.Written in a lyrical style with thoughtful and charming illustrations throughout, this remarkable debut novel tells a poignant story of friendship and the bittersweet feelings of growing up.Praise for Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie“Eleanor’s ingenuous free-verse monologue should strike a chord with readers, especially those who may have had to cope with the loss of a loved one. Cordell’s halftone cartoons convey the story’s pathos and humor, as well as Eleanor’s changeable moods.” –Publishers Weekly“Cordell’s winsome cartoon drawings complement the text without overcrowding the verse. It tells a simple, poignant story that will resonate with any child who has ever had to say good-bye.” –Booklist“This first novel is a promising debut. Eleanor’s concerns, not only about her babysitter, but also about playmates, friends and a new school year will be familiar to readers, who will look forward to hearing more about her life.” –Kirkus Reviews“Sternberg hits all the right notes here, capturing a sensitive kid’s first experience of loss with tender respectfulness and full acknowledgment that separation is a bereavement too. Sprightly line drawings, with the same perky homeyness as the story, add visual energy.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books“Heartfelt, accessible, and energetic…” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books"This heartwarming novel and its winsome cartoon-like illustrations draw readers right into the story. Children would enjoy this short chapter book as an independent read, but it would also be a particularly good choice for parents to read to or with their children." –BookPage

I'm a third grade teacher and one of my students wrote this review. I hope you enjoy it as much as she did!

Ever felt the feeling when your favorite and first babysitter moves away? Eleanor Kane felt that feeling when Bibi (her babysitter) moved to Florida. Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg is an outstanding book for you to read. How is Eleanor going to deal with this?
This book is about Eleanor, a unique and quiet fourth grader. She wanted Bibi to stay with her and not move to Florida. But she had to move because she wanted to be with her dad at the hospital. So her mom tried to find other babysitters. But there were no babysitters that Eleanor liked. Then she began to write letters to Bibi. Will Eleanor feel better and find a babysitter like Bibi? Or will Eleanor not talk or see Bibi anymore?
Nothing stopped me from reading this enthusiastic book. At the beginning, I was at the top of the roller coaster ride because some exciting news happened when Eleanor found out that Bibi was moving away to Florida. They had a going away party and everybody was sobbing with tears. The day after Bibi left was heartbreaking. Eleanor had nothing to do because everything reminded her of Bibi. Pray that Eleanor finds a babysitter! Will Eleanor get through this rough moment and find a babysitter like Bibi? Read to find out.
I would recommend this book to mostly girls of all ages. I think this book could fit in many genres…realistic fiction, humorous, and more! This book can take you on an adventure ride through happy and sad moments. Like Pickle Juice On A Cookie is the book for you!
Read it now!

This character has many similarities to our son, whom I read this story to. He loved the connection to the character. My little boy was recently diagnosed with leukemia and this story enabled us another way of how we will deal with these new things! The title made him smile...on a tough day!

When Eleanor’s babysitter moves to Florida, she is miserable. What will she do without Bibi, the best babysitter in the world? Her August is rotten with this loss. She gets a new babysitter, but she’s no Bibi. This is a wonderful children’s book dealing with changes in one’s life, making adjustments, and attachments that are broken. It’s written in verse, and Eleanor is endearing.

I am reading this to my class right now and I really like it. The chapters are really short and it is something they can relate to. The book has some mini pictures in it. It is an easy read. The book is based on conversations, so if they don't understand that, it would be hard to follow. There is a lot of, "My dad said........he said, she said, etc" Otherwise I love the book. A good read aloud for an elementary class.

"Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie" is a great read for children beginning chapter books. The length of each chapter is manageable and the added pictures are a plus. Eleanor faces a major change when she must say goodbye to her beloved babysitter. She also experiences changes as she deals with receiving a new sitter and beginning third grade. Students are sure to connect with this wonderful tale of Eleanor and her difficult summer.
As a teacher, I am always looking for books that have a great message and are written well. "Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie" is that sort of book. Students can learn to welcome the changes in their lives as they experience the changes that Eleanor must face. I also love the wording and layout of the book. The correspondence between different characters shows great use of letter-writing. The use of similes throughout as Eleanor compares her situations to various items is also a plus. I can see a lot of teachable moments coming out of this book.

I read this to my granddaughter, who is 8, on a day when she wasn't feeling her best. We got through it in two sittings. This is a girl who has to be made to do her reading at night. She thoroughly enjoyed it and wouldn't let me stop until the end.

The book is written very well for kids. It's easily keeps your attention. The words are easy to read for my 8 year old who has dyslexia.
