Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
I always stop to pick up lost pennies and other change. My grandmother would tell me that it brings good luck just as Lucy's dad tells her. However, this little girl experiences anything but good luck as one mishap after another takes place accompanied by the recurring phrase "Bad luck, Lucy." That really is the story, and while the illustrations are cute, with Lucy stumbling and disrupting Mom, Grandma and Grandpa, it is a very slim tale. "Tadpoles" is the name given to this series of early readers that kids can read on their own or with adult assistance. Tips are provided to help enrich the reading experience and make it fun. The fifth point listed is one often overlooked—"Give praise! Children learn best in a positive environment." On the verso of the title page in each title of the series, there is a photograph or drawing of the author and illustrator with a comment from each. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
