Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rae Valabek
The simple sentences in this book focus on the verb "to see." The vocabulary is controlled and similar to the earlier Dick and Jane type of reader. The colorful watercolor pictures add interest to a rather limited story. However, children who are just beginning to read would probably be thrilled to be able to read a whole book like this to themselves or a sympathetic listener. Part of the "My First I Can Read" series targeted to emergent readers.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Karlin tells a slight story in which the same few words are used in several different ways. Two jaunty kittens explore a field and discover a can, a saw, a bee, a sea, a seasaw, etc. They then take great pleasure in playing with those wordsfor example, one says, "I see, you saw." "No. I see, you saw. I saw the seasaw first!" None of the dialogue is attributed and the tongue-twisting sentences make little sense even when they are read correctly. The simple watercolor cartoon art is appealing, but not distinguished. This selection is more apt to confuse than engage emergent readers.Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL
