With spring on the way, the ponies decide to make Ponyville sparkle. But is Cheerilee too busy to listen to her friend's ideas?
Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotWith emphasis on recycle, reuse and cutting our carbon footprint, this level 1 early reader in the "My Little Pony: series offers ways to become green. Cheerilee is the one who suggests that they have a Green Day in Ponyville. Everyone seems to be happy except Toola-Roola who had suggested painting the picnic table when Cheerilee had her "great idea." The real story is that Cheerilee did not listen to her friend, she apologized and once amends were made, they all planted seeds, painted jars, cans and the picnic table until Ponyville sparkled. A good message, but the characters (pink and other pastel colored ponies) and dialogue are so saccharine that this book is recommended for diehard fans. The story is presented in rebus form and the picture and word key are located opposite the title page. The back cover lists other titles in the series and also a web site. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

This story is great for beginners due to the size of the font, ease of words used and pictures. The bright colors dazzle the children, the story helps them to learn from experiences and how they too can help, even if very young. Some words are repetative, which helps the children learn "sight words". My granddaughter loves to pick this book up and pretend to read (she actaully gets some of the word correct). It's nice to see that others care about how we treat this world and take the time to reach out to the young - for their future world.
