Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jane Harrington
Chapter One: Jack is worried about a monster and does not want to be in bed, so Mom and Dad read books to him until he falls asleep. Chapter Two: He wakes in the middle of the night and crawls into his parents' bed, so they go out the next day and get him a "special stay-in-your-own-bed" gift—a stuffed leopard with a water bottle. Chapter Three: Jack sleeps well after that, having all kinds of imaginary adventures with his leopard—mountain climbing, rafting, camel-riding, etc. Part of the "Green Bananas" series, this book is marketed as "three stories in one." (A slightly odd designation, considering that chapters are used to divide the book and are certainly part of the same story.) The text is appropriate for the intended age group (four to six), and speech bubbles on several pages add a little extra fun for those just learning to read. This book might also be an engaging read-aloud and useful tool for helping toddlers get used to staying alone in their beds. The skillfully drawn, colorful illustrations will certainly appeal to that wider audience range.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These beginning readers, each with three short chapters, highlight familiar situations: the first day in a new school, bedtime fears, and conflicts with a friend. School features a monkey in a wheelchair and her classmates, while Bed and Diggers have children and their family members as characters. Teachers will appreciate the multisyllabic word choices in these books, but at times the language may be above the level of the intended audience. The books also contain dialogue bubbles. Each title includes some descriptive words that may help young readers develop a larger vocabulary when the books are read aloud. The colorful illustrations, which differ in style, add humor.
