Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
Presented as a finger puppet story, this book from the Alex Toy Company will delight young children and bring one of the most well-loved classic fairy tales to life. This attractive version of the three little pigs story includes colorful finger puppets that are attached by Velcro to the cover page. Young readers will enjoy manipulating the puppets and using the interactive felt space on the last page of the book to act out the story or to create their own adventures. The bold print text, consisting of simple vocabulary, high frequency words, and repetitive phrases, will help make this book enjoyable for young readers. The bright, engaging illustrations on each page will delight young readers and provide additional rich details that enhance the story and aid in comprehension. This hard page interactive book will be a class favorite or a treasure in any young reader's private collection. Most importantly, it will bring the story of the three little pigs to life in a whole new way for young readers.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Harper brings two tales to life by providing an attractive PellonR glove with four finger puppets attached by Velcro. One plan is for the storyteller to read the board book while attaching the appropriate character puppet to the mitten. The glove has a pocket to hide characters until they are needed. In addition, each title has a final spread covered with PellonR so that children can retell the story by placing the pieces on the pictorial scene. Harper uses words that are simple enough for beginning readers and pictures large enough to be seen by a group. McDonald's colorful and cheery cartoonlike images are uncomplicated in design; she uses small dots for eyes and a smiling semicircle for mouths. Finally, the mitt attaches to the cover with another Velcro dot. Libraries with realia collections or storytime kits could include these two folktales for a pleasant variety.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
