Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Do you think a mouse and a lion can be friends? In this Spanish text version of the famous Aesop fable The Lion and the Mouse, the lion did not think so. In this fable, children will discover how a mouse pleaded with a lion to set him free. Later, the mouse helped the lion when he saw it was trapped in a net. Then, the two became friends. Sara Rojo's gouache paint illustrations are bold and help the reader decode the text using the pictures. This book is part of the "Read- It! Readers" series; a series divided into levels: purple, red, blue, yellow, green, and orange. There is a note to parents at the beginning of the book that explains the levels and how parents can use the stories with their children. Other "Read-It! Readers" are listed. This book is at the fifth level, green. At this level the reader is comes across more complex ideas, an extended vocabulary range, and a variety of language structures. 2006, Picture Window Books/Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 9.

School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-Blackaby follows the plot of Andersen's original tale. The text is written in simple language while presenting some complex ideas and sophisticated sentence structures. Expressive watercolor cartoon characters are the highlight of each spread. In Ant, White retells Aesop's fable in equally simple language. The story can lead to classroom discussion about work and play. Muted cartoon pictures using lots of browns and greens illustrate the story. In Lion, the reteller closely follows the familiar fable about cooperation between the mighty lion and the tiny mouse. The story concludes with the mouse saying, "You didn't think I could help you- but an act of kindness is never wasted," which provides a good opener for further discussion. Clear illustrations in a cartoon style with soft golds, browns, and greens decorate every page. Good choices for children who want to read these familiar stories on their own.-Karen Land, Greenport Public School, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
