Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Arthur's little sister is on her own in this board book version of a popular story. D.W. wants to do a forward roll, but she can't master it in class. After lots of practice at home, D. W. masters the skill and demonstrates it in the next class. But that is just the beginning, as next she and her classmates have to master a backward roll. It is fun and toddlers just learning to control their own bodies in this complicated movement will delight in D.W.'s accomplishment. As always Marc Brown's humor is evident in all of the artwork.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 Readers of Brown's ``Arthur Adventure'' series (Joy Street Bks.) are in for a treat. D. W., Arthur's self-assured little sister, is the central character in a new series written for beginning readers. It's D. W.'s first day in gymnastics class, and she knows it all. For D. W., touching toes and skipping in circles is easy, but when she is called upon to do a forward roll, she can't. After a long week of practice, D. W. masters the forward rollonly to discover the new task at hand is the backward roll. Brown's humorous and detailed illustrations are done in watercolors outlined with pen and ink. In this title, however, the colors are not as vivid as in his other books. A simple text combined with expressive drawings make this charming book one that children will enjoy reading. Most future gymnasts will identify with D. W., as this book reinforces the saying ``practice makes perfect.'' Orvella Fields, Indianapolis-Marion County Pub . Lib .
