Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
Would your child or student know what to do if he/she got lost while on a class field trip? It is important that young children have the safety knowledge and social skills to protect themselves if the situation of getting lost should occur. This simple text is part of a collection of "I See I Learn" books which have been written and designed to impart critical health and safety skill information to young children as they enjoy reading a simple realistic fictional story. Freda, the main character in this story, gets distracted by looking in a store window while on a school field trip and she thinks she is lost. Luckily, because she remembers to stay calm, get help from an adult, and share her name, address, and phone number, there is a happy ending. The gentle picture clues in each captivating illustration and the inset informational details about how to be safe are key text features which contribute to making this story relevant. The important safety information is imparted in a non-threatening way, yet it is meaningful because young readers will relate to the main character and care about the outcome of the story. Young children will enjoy reading this delightful story with or without an adult reading partner, and it may just be that this simple story about Freda will be the source of important information for a child who finds him/herself in a tricky social situation one day and must remember how to respond so that he/she is safe.

Kirkus Reviews

Murphy's I See I Learn visual learning series continues with two new titles for children that focus on the cognitive skill of name writing and strategies to stay safe when lost.

When Freda's attention wanders to the toy store window, she stops to look, but her class keeps walking toward the firehouse. Lost, Freda must use all she has learned to help her teachers and classmates find her again. She stays calm, gets help from an adult and is able to tell that adult about herself—full name, address, phone number and school and teacher names. A final flow chart presents readers with these steps, and questions to the readers focus on "What if..." The scariness of being lost is ameliorated somewhat by the fact that most of the illustrations show the class within sight of Freda. In the simultaneously publishing Write On, Carlos (2011), Carlos asks his mom for help in learning to write his name. Over several days, readers can see that his practice is paying off as he progresses from being able to write "Car" to proudly writing his full name on paper, in sand and with chalk while his supportive friends watch. An alphabet chart at the bottom of many pages highlights the letters used to form the names, while the final question section asks readers what names they can write. The bright illustrations clearly show both the effort that Carlos is expending and his imperfect practice pages.

Solid series additions that teach useful skills and the power of practice. (Picture book. 3-5)
