Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The overall simplicity of this book makes it ideal for new readers, and would be perfect for even first-time readers. Four stories are included about a raccoon named Eddie. These stories use a limited vocabulary and have a balance of repetition without monotony. The sentences in each story follow a basic pattern that empowers new readers by allowing them to get comfortable as they recognize the sentence structures. Each story also has a short introduction that gives readers a taste of what they are about to read without giving away the unpredictable, adorable endings. This book would be appropriate in a school setting, but parents would also appreciate the included tips on reading with a child and making it a pleasant experience. The watercolor and ink illustrations will aid new readers with making inferences about the stories, and the book's small size is perfect for the little hands of children. This title is part of the "Brand New Readers" series. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 5.
