Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julie Minnich
Jessica is reluctantly spending the summer with her aunt and uncle in the country, even though she prefers the city. Jessica is not used to country life and although she is interested in animals, she refuses her uncle's attempts to get her go to the local shelter. When he returns home with a brown pony, her reluctance slowly turns into eagerness as she helps name him Peanut. Jessica spends her summer learning how to take care of the pony. Jessica and Peanut share a reciprocal fondness as they help each other get acclimated to their new surroundings. This story features new words related to horses and an illustrated glossary of horse equipment. This is a level two book for grades one through three in the "We Both Read" series. Reviewer: Julie Minnich

K-Gr 2- Mark asks to stay up for just five minutes more. Mom acquiesces, but when the time is up, he still isn't tired. The excuses he gives as he begs for extra time get more and more fantastical: five minutes to say goodnight to his pets, five to knit a scarf for his giraffe, five to go to the moon and tuck it in for the night. The boy finally falls asleep and when his alarm goes off the next morning, he's looking for "just five more minutes" sleep. In the second book, city girl Jessica goes to visit her aunt and uncle in Texas. She's afraid of horses until she meets a shy pony named Peanut. The horse and girl bond as each helps the other overcome a fear of trying new things. Both stories are part of a series in which the lengthier text is placed on the left-hand pages for adults to read and the simpler text, intended for a child, is on the right. The degree of difficulty on the child's pages is just right for the target audience-Five Minutes is level one and Pony is level two. Both books have colorful, if undistinguished, illustrations and are good additions to easy-reader shelves.-Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA
