Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Beth has outgrown her boots. Her friends offer theirs but they are either too big, too small, too soft, too wet, or too thin. Finally her friends come up with a surprise—a new pair of red boots that are just the right size. Now Beth can join them in their games. The text is very simple and so are the concepts. This book could easily have been labeled a Level 1 reader for younger kids. The cartoon style artwork by Ernst is delightful and will bring smiles to readers of any age. Part of the "Green Light Reader" series, a Level 2 book for Grades 1-2. 2002, Harcourt,
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Two selections for new readers. In the first, a pig has outgrown her favorite red cowgirl boots. Each of her friends offers her an alternative pair, but none is right for Beth. This silly story will amuse youngsters. Ernst's bright, movement-filled, pastel-colored illustrations fit perfectly with the quick and playful text. In the second book, a child accompanies her parents as they pack up fruits and vegetables grown on their farm and travel to sell them at an outdoor market. The simple, straightforward text is enhanced with lovely oil paintings depicting the people and market-day activities with sensitivity and warmth. Solid additions.-Lynda S.
