Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This blue-level book from the "Read-it! Readers" series has been reviewed by a Professor Emeritus from California State University and by a literacy educator. While this would seem to mean it is a good book, there are questions about its content level. On the second spread the main character states a problem he sees at the swimming pool; "The lifeguards are so mean!" Several pages follow and they tell what swimmers cannot do: no splashing, no running, no diving, no pushing, and more. At the end of the tale the swimmer swims to the deep end to hide from the lifeguards. This is a bit of a safety issue because his little sister follows and she cannot swim. The swimmer then rescues his sister and the lifeguards thank him. This positive exchange does not happen until page 29 out of a total 31 pages. Computer generated illustrations are blocky and unattractive. Student readers may be able to identify with the happenings. The concept of learning pool behavior is a good one. Nevertheless, explaining the positive actions of a lifeguard may be a better way to cover this topic. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 7.
