Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Miss Molly had a string on her finger. She knew today was special, but she couldn't remember why. On her calendar she found a note to "be ready at eight." but she still couldn't remember why. All day long Miss Molly looked for clues-but at eight she found out she had given herself a surprise birthday party. Ready-To-Read, Level 2: Reading with help.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Peggy Parish's story (S&S, 1996) about a white haired lady with red tennis shoes who is extremely forgetful is a fun read. Miss Molly has a string on her finger to remind her of something important that is happening today; however, she can't remember what it is. As the day progresses, she meets many of her friends and neighbors, all of whom know about the important event. Before the end of the book, even the youngest readers will have guessed that it is her birthday. The audiotape is nicely and clearly narrated by Barbara Caruso who utilizes a number of different voices for the large cast of characters in the book. A nice touch is using the sound of a page turning as a cue, instead of the usual beep tone to indicate the need to turn the page. Most of the time there is no background music to detract from the reader's interpretation, and only a minimum of sound effects--all of which makes this tape very useful in classrooms where the emphasis would be on reading the book along with the tape. This audio version will be a favorite for listening centers in primary classrooms.-Linda R. Skeele, Western Elementary School, Georgetown, KY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
