Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Each of these beginning readers has a controlled vocabulary (up to 100 words), with the words listed across the tops of the pages where they first appear. In Rover, each member of the family wants to adopt a different kind of dog, but they finally find one that pleases them all. Hoffman's average-quality cartoons support the text, but do little to enhance it. Harry's Bath tells of a boy who cannot get into the tub because of all the other animals in it. Chwast's colored-ink drawings are somewhat flat, but kids will enjoy them. In Silly Pig, the porker buys a wig, drives a rig, digs, and dances a jig. Then he is tired and goes home. This book includes more repetition and rhyming than the other two. Rader's characters are outlined in a heavy bold line and have more appeal than the weak story. Higher-quality beginning readers are in plentiful supply.-Sharon R. Pearce, Chippewa Elementary School, Bensenville, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

This book is perfect for my son who is a struggling beginning reader. Across the top of each page are words which the reader may find difficult. I read the words to my son before he begins reading the text. This way, he hears and sees the words before he reads them in the story, which allows him to read more fluently. His comprehension goes up, as does his confidence. He's already asking for more books like this.
