My Auntie Susan

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
"Tadpoles" is the name given to this series of early readers which kids can read on their own or with adult assistance. Tips are provided to help enrich the reading experience and make it fun. The fifth point listed is one often overlooked—"Give praise! Children learn best in a positive environment." In each title of the series, on the verso of the title page, there is a photograph or drawing of the author and illustrator with a comment from each. The illustrations and story in this title are both whimsical. Auntie Susan is not mainstream. She dresses differently and seems to be quite happy to be her own person. Her niece delights in their shared activities, from shopping, to cooking, to playing; the two are very much alike. When Auntie Susan gets in a muddle, her niece provides a much needed hug. Do not miss the little gems in the illustrations which should bring a smile to anyone reading the book. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
