Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Loftus
The plot line in Emily's story comes second to target vocabulary words and sentence structures in this "Blue Level" book from the "Read It!" reading series. Picture books and early chapter books created specifically for the educational market are different than trade books. Frequently written to specific goals or standards, with articles of research and Ph.D.s behind them, these books seem to be more about their use as a teaching tool rather than about the story or character. This type of book may help teach a child to read, but does any student grow to love reading from books like this? Emily does have a story in this book, and a problem that she doesn't know how to solve. Emily wants to draw, but all her attempts, whether circles or houses, are a mess. Young readers will identify with Emily's feelings of frustration, visually represented by the pile of crumpled papers on the floor around her desk. Emily's mother and father try to help, offering suggestions related to Emily's drawing tools: a sharper pencil, different paper. Nothing works. Just when Emily is about to give up, she grabs the pencil with her left hand and voila! A magical, if not entirely believable, solution: "Her picture was perfect," marking an abrupt ending to the Blue Level reader.
