Editorial Reviews

Children's Bookwatch
Schoolmates tease a boy about his father's pest control business, and he decides to do something about it. His dad's bright yellow truck is waiting for him at the curb with big red letters on the side reading "The Squish 'Em Squad" and on the top is a huge plastic model of an ant with a stupid grin on its face. How Zack come to deal with his embarrassment and the peer pressure it stems from makes for an engaging and lively story. Don't Bug Me is one in a series of outstanding and highly recommended stories in the "Cover-to-Cover Novels" series of Hi/Lo reading for grades 4-8.
Read Aloud Review
While Carol Dines writes serious, sophisticated literature for able readers, another conference attendee, Margo Sorenson of Edina, writes for students at the other end of the continuum. Her softcover books are targeted to "reluctant and at-risk readers" who, although they are in fourth to the eighth grades, read only at the second grade level. Her fast-paced 1996 softcover chapter book, Don't Bug Me, demonstrates her ability to develop characters the reader cares about, within the mission-imposed constraints of using a limited vocabulary and non-complex plot. We look forward to her winter 1998 biography of Socrates which will also be done as part of this "Cover-to-Cover" series.
