Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Why does the big bug dig? He very industriously goes deeper and deeper in the ground passing by roots, gopher holes, rocks and moles. Our industrious bug doesn't take a break and doesn't seem to need a nap; he just keeps going deeper and deeper. Finally he has a hole and is surrounded by silence�the perfect place for him to sleep. Anthropomorphic creatures fill the pages of this simple short story. To help kids with comprehension and reading skills there are several pages of activities�identifying opposites, a dot-to-dot surprise, a maze, selecting rhyming words, a word find, fill in the blanks and a set of flash cards bound into the book. There is an answer key and also an introductory note to family members with guidelines to help kids become better readers. The inside front and back endpapers list other books in the "Hello Reader" series. A "My First Hello! Reader" with game cards for preschool to grade 1. 2001, Cartwheel/Scholastic,
