Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
Colorful pictures of underwater life enhance the rhyming text of this "I Can Read Book" for beginning readers. Six little fish are on a journey in the bay. Three children are playing nearby. One little fish loses his way when he inadvertently swims under a child's red pail. As soon as the child scoops up his pail to join some friends, the fish happily rejoins his mates. The verse is repetitive, which lends itself to reinforcing the words that children learn to read in this book. This reinforcement will, in turn, build confidence in reading ability. Hopefully, it will also stimulate the desire to read and learn more words. Children will love the bright hues in these ocean scenes, but they may find the simple story a bit boring after reading it several times.
School Library Journal
PreS-KA very simple story in rhyme, set at the beach. Not only can beginning readers feel successful at mastering the short, repetitive sentences, but they can also excel at counting the human feet and fish under the water. Colorful illustrations enhance the text. Libraries that never seem to have enough of the easiest primers will want to add this appealing title.Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA

    Great Beginning

    This book was in my reading series when I taught first grade a couple of years ago and I found that the chidren felt great success when they were able to read this on their own so quickly. This book is great for the child who really wants to begin reading.
