Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This packet of "First-time Reader" books is a great way to introduce reading to any child. Monkey is a joyful character that takes children on a new and exciting adventure in three separate stories. Through this collection of books your child will learn about loosing a first tooth, playing hide and seek, having some birthday fun, and mom's special bandages for when you fall down. Each 5x7-inch book is easily handled by small hands and offers simple illustrations to complement the beginning level text. Also included in the back of each book are some helpful suggestions to make reading time more enjoyable for you and your child. I especially like the cardboard sleeve to hold all four of the books. It makes it simple to keep the books contained for easy transportation to the car or from room to room. 2000, Candlewick Press, $4.99. Ages 3 to 5. Reviewer: Sharon Tolle
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-In Business, a little monkey makes birthday presents for his mother, hides in a trash can, gets so many bandages that he pretends to be a mummy, and loses a tooth. In Trouble, the same character pops some balloons, gets carried away by a kite, pretends to eat worms, and has a series of close calls that culminate in a big "SPLASH!" The chapters have one sentence per page, and feature plenty of repetition and controlled vocabularies. The colorful cartoons help new readers decipher unfamiliar words. The stories have a touch of humor, which adds to their appeal. Early readers will find success in reading these independently.-Sharon R.
