These confusing, oversimplified early chapter books have weak rhyming texts: "Morning ends at twelve o'clock./It's time to eat our lunch./Peanut butter sandwiches/are really good to munch" (Day ). Additional explanations will be needed, and some information is excluded. For example, in Months , children are informed that "Four months last for 30 days./Most months last for 31," with no mention of February. The "Words to Know" section (omitted from Hour ) and index in each title include words that seem somewhat random. Despite bright, full-page photos, these books have limited appeal.
