Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Dad is taking Jamal and Anisa back-to-school shopping. Jamal is in the fifth grade and Anisa is in the first so their supply needs are different. Anisa is disappointed when Jamal gets ink pens and she gets pencils. So it goes with all of the shopping until they both get new backpacks and are ready for school to start. "Dad is ready for a nap!" The illustrations convey the depth of Anisa's feelings as the text is kept simple for the emergent reader. This is a red level book in the "Read It! Readers" series (presents familiar topics using common words and repeating sentence patterns). It is rewarding to see the family interacting in such a positive way and each of the children enjoying the time with their dad doing errands. This book achieves its goal of appealing to early readers' abilities and sensibilities. I can remember wanting the "older kids" school supplies at an early age. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 7.
