Children's Literature
If you are a pet owner, you will know how they can quickly figure out that you are heading out on a trip and that perhaps they are not invited along. The young girl in this "Rookie Reader" is getting ready for a trip. She has her suitcase out and starts pulling clothes out of drawers. Her tabby cat keeps jumping in the bag, because he doesn't want to be left behind. The simple text with its cheerful watercolor illustrations also provides an opportunity to count as our young girl packs—"two shirts, two shoes, three pants, three caps." There are other extended learning possibilities, which the pictures provide. It ends on a cheerful note as she heads off to her destination with a bulging suitcase and a happy cat trailing behind. A word list (56) and brief bios about the author and illustrator cap off this Level B entry for early fluent readers. 2001, Children's Press, $19.00 and $5.95. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer:Marilyn Courtot
