Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
In this Level Two book in the "Ready to Read" series; there are longer sentences, simplistic chapters, and high-interest vocabulary words needed for developmental young readers. This book is centered on the Dungy family. Jade happens to be the star track athlete in the family. Justin, her younger brother, is less than thrilled about having to attend the track meets and cheer for his sister on the sidelines. It is not so much about jealousy but feeling inadequate and not realizing his strengths. When his older brother Jordan reminds him each child in the family has a talent, Justin realizes he is at good art and has won a ribbon at the science fair. So instead of feeling left out, tired, and hot by attending Jade's track meets, Justin decides to create a surprise for Jade's next track meet. Through parental reinforcement each of the Dungy children realizes they have something to contribute. The illustrations tie-in appropriately with the text. With so many books on the market for beginning readers, this is one title that may fill the niche for young readers honing in on the developing literacy skills. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts
