Emergent readers for kids who are beginning to sound out words and sentences.
Children's Literature - Robin LundgrenThis book for new readers, based on the upcoming movie Marley & Me, is part of the "Marley & Me" series. Lovable Labrador Marley brings a lot of good-natured chaos into the lives of owners John and Jenny, getting into all kinds of mischief. But when a neighbor is mugged, Marley proves to be a good watchdog, holding the thief at bay until the police arrive. While the language is appropriate for the early reader and sentences are simple, some of the content might be a bit mature for the younger early reader. The book is illustrated with photo stills from the movie, starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson. Kids will likely enjoy adorable close-ups of Marley and pictures of him getting out of police car. However, many of the pictures depicting the aftermath of the mugging may be too realistic for young children and therefore somewhat disturbing. Reviewer: Robin Lundgren
