Overview

In 1957, Harper published its first I Can Read title, Little Bear, written by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Large type, simple vocabulary, chapter-like divisions, and decorative pictures made Little Bear perfect for emerging readers�they could read the story comfortably and not feel overwhelmed by the text. Following suit came such classics as Peggy Parish's Amelia Bedelia series, Lillian Hoban's books about Arthur the monkey, and Syd Hoff's popular Danny and the Dinosaur. Many books in this series are special in the depth of emotion evoked - Little Bear, the Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel, and Daniel�s Duck by Clyde Bulla, to name a few - and all are enjoyed by children of all ages. Grade 1 - Grade 3.

K-Gr 2-- Aunt Eater, introduced in Aunt Eater Loves a Mystery (HarperCollins, 1987), returns. Would-be sleuths can try to solve the mysterious disappearances of a ferry captain, a diamond ring, and a dinosaur bone, and determine the identity of a strange woman. Cushman enhances his text with numerous watercolor illustrations that assist readers with visual clues. Children will appreciate Aunt Eater's excitement when she rings the ferry's ``All Ashore'' bell and meets her favorite author. Another good addition to the series. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
