Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A family of four--mother, father, son, and pup--climb in the car for a trip to Grandpa's. The child tells the story of his excitement, boredom, anticipation, and celebration. The child remembers Grandpa's store, sings with Mom to relieve boredom, gets out to walk his dog, and finally jumps into Grandpa's arms. This is a controlled vocabulary story written in rhymed couplets. An adult reads the left hand page, while the child chimes in with (reads) the word or two on the right hand page. Clues for the beginning reader are found in the illustrations and in the rhyme. Occasionally, my tongue knotted during the reading aloud. For example, "There's even a rocking chair and an old trunk." The illustrations are simple and convey childlike energy. The Parent's Introduction to the "We Both Read" series explains its educational value and the icons used to indicate when the parent reads and when the child reads. The pattern is straight forward and the icons are not needed. 2005, Treasure Bay, Ages 4 to 5.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-This "shared reading" series features one page of text for skilled readers and a facing page of simpler text for beginners. Taylor! targets grades 1-2. Otis describes his first day of school and his efforts to get classmates to stop teasing his best friend. Their teacher intervenes and initiates class discussion. She tells a story about The Tree People, an imaginary native tribe that practices the tradition of the Magic Circle, where participants state positive comments for each member. The class is asked to prepare for their own Magic Circle. Distinguished, realistic paintings provide contextual clues. Car Trip is lighter fare for kindergarteners, featuring a boy and his family. The page of longer text is written in rhyme and leads the child to complete it with a rhyming word or two. The bold, watercolor illustrations clearly depict the story. While some of the rhymes are a bit forced, the approach is a tremendous confidence builder as new readers share this excursion filled with fun, love, and interesting plot twists. Both are useful additions to school and public libraries.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
