    Yes, I've read it. About a gazillion times. :) ...

    This was a challenge to read aloud as the dialogue goes back and forth so quickly. My son often asked, "who said that?" Regardless it is a nice story but more importantly shines a light on a group that I've never read a book about before: active duty military kids growing up on militar...

    I?m not really sure what I expected from this book when I got it but I definitely loved it. I could relate to this on some levels. I have had three nephews and a brother in Iraq. I had a student whose mother was sent to Korea and she was sent to live with her grandmother for a year a...

    I sWEAR books about military kids are my weakness! GUESS WHO CRIED IN THIS BOOK?? It doesn't top The Green Glass Sea but STILL. I love these books. ...

    My Fifth grader and I tackled this book together. He had started to read it for an assignment. In fact, he was supposed to read it for an oral book report. He made it half way through and wanted to give up. The book is 250 pages long and he had not even made it to the main conflict. I ...

    Oh to teach like Ms. Loupe; this is my goal. I want to inspire reluctant learners in the same fashion. This story is phenomenally encouraging and brings together meaningful elements of life; education and military. ...

    Well I really didn't like it because it was too slow in the beginning and never really got good ...

    I didnt like the story that well, but I felt a very strong connection to the characters. Espically Mrs. Loupe. She reminded me of my 3rd and 6th grade teachers. ...

    I loved the aspect of including improv theater in teaching. I would have loved to have a teacher like Miss Loupe, with a taped-rectangle "stage" and a funky couch as a prop in her classroom, who used theater in her teaching. (I remember my sixth-grade teacher had a box of plays in our ...

    **Spoiler Alert!!** Bo: He is a teacher's pet and is Gari's cousin. Gari: She's Bo's cousin, who has to move to live with Bo. Mrs. Loupe: The new sixth grade teacher that is a fun teacher. Trey: Bo's best friend. Melissa: Bo's classmate that helps with the rebellion. In the beg...

    I thought this book was amazing in my opinion it really made me want to be grateful that my parent and I aren't in the army because then I would have to find new friends. Also this book seems very real at times because of how well the story was composed an example of this was when Gari...

    Good preteen read set in a middle-school on an Air Force base. When their teacher gets some bad news about her brother serving in Afghanistan, the students use the creativity, imagination, and improv she taught them to rally together and help her out. Good example of how a group of stu...

    I rated this book a 2 because although it is kinda relatable to what kids do , it doesn?t really all happen at once. I would recommend this book to a 6th grader so they can see how they act. It shows that a kid is going through family problems and is also managing school. I like that...

    It is almost like this book is missing something. I don't feel like it came into completion. However, I did enjoy the parts that were there. I especially liked the characters. ...

    FINALLY finished it. Not really a fan of this book or style of writing or characters or plot or... You get the idea. Probably wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. ...

    I thought the book was a great representation for some of the things that children of people who are in the army and what not have to go through. I was in tears when Ms. Loupe's brother, Marc, went missing though. ...

    Operation Yes Sara Lewis Holmes Realistic Fiction This is a story about kids that live on a military base and attend school there. Bo?s Dad is the commander on the base where Bo?s family lives. The base is in the US, so for now, Bo doesn?t have to worry about his Dad. But ...

    Operation yes is about a bunch of 6th graders who live on a Air Force base which values discipline more than improv. They didn't know what to make for Mis. Loupe, there school teacher, with her short short hair, her taped square ?stage? on the floor, and her love for improvisationa...

    Bo (Bogart) didn't have a very successful year in fifth grade. So, he isn't looking forward to sixth grade too much. He isn't looking forward to continued visits with Mrs. Heard,the principal. All that changes when Miss Loupe enters the pictures and introduces students to "the taped sp...

    I want to be in Miss Loupe's class! And I have just spent wonderful time with interesting characters: Bo, Gari, Trey and Melissa. And it is 1:30am. Couldn't put it down and helped pass my sleepless battle with poison ivy or whatever these itchy blisters are. I think this book has read ...

    Bo, the energetic son of a military commander, has always hated school. He has a hard time sitting still, and every time he gets in trouble at school (which is often), he also gets in trouble at home. When he first meets Miss Loupe, a brand new sixth grade teacher, he is just not sure ...

    I grabbed this book along with a few others from our school book fair with the purpose of being familiar with what my students were reading. From the cover image (this edition was from Scholastic) I thought it was going to be another silly, cartoonish story. Was I wrong! The story is ...

    For all intents and purposes, this book about a 6th grader whose mom is deployed as a nurse to Afghanistan, should have been one that I loved. It's well-written, has a terrific message, and the characters were likable. For me, though, the book dragged quite a bit. The story was slow in...

    Operation Yes intrigues the reader with the toy army men on the cover. I personally never read the back cover. I liked the army men and figured that the story would be about army men coming to life and saving their owners. Yes, it would be a novel like Toy Story the movie. I was wro...

    I rated this book a 2 because although it is kinda relatable to what kids do , it doesn?t really all happen at once. I would recommend this book to a 6th grader so they can see how they act. It shows that a kid is going through family problems and is also managing school. I like that...

    It is almost like this book is missing something. I don't feel like it came into completion. However, I did enjoy the parts that were there. I especially liked the characters. ...

    FINALLY finished it. Not really a fan of this book or style of writing or characters or plot or... You get the idea. Probably wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. ...

    I thought the book was a great representation for some of the things that children of people who are in the army and what not have to go through. I was in tears when Ms. Loupe's brother, Marc, went missing though. ...

    Yes, I've read it. About a gazillion times. :) ...

    This was a challenge to read aloud as the dialogue goes back and forth so quickly. My son often asked, "who said that?" Regardless it is a nice story but more importantly shines a light on a group that I've never read a book about before: active duty military kids growing up on militar...

    I?m not really sure what I expected from this book when I got it but I definitely loved it. I could relate to this on some levels. I have had three nephews and a brother in Iraq. I had a student whose mother was sent to Korea and she was sent to live with her grandmother for a year a...

    My Fifth grader and I tackled this book together. He had started to read it for an assignment. In fact, he was supposed to read it for an oral book report. He made it half way through and wanted to give up. The book is 250 pages long and he had not even made it to the main conflict. I ...

    Oh to teach like Ms. Loupe; this is my goal. I want to inspire reluctant learners in the same fashion. This story is phenomenally encouraging and brings together meaningful elements of life; education and military. ...

    Well I really didn't like it because it was too slow in the beginning and never really got good ...

    I didnt like the story that well, but I felt a very strong connection to the characters. Espically Mrs. Loupe. She reminded me of my 3rd and 6th grade teachers. ...

    I loved the aspect of including improv theater in teaching. I would have loved to have a teacher like Miss Loupe, with a taped-rectangle "stage" and a funky couch as a prop in her classroom, who used theater in her teaching. (I remember my sixth-grade teacher had a box of plays in our ...
