Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debby Willett
My parents have plans to go out and that means I will have a babysitter. When the doorbells rings, the only one surprised is me—it's a T-Rex, and she says to call her Sue. My parents leave for the evening, and the fun is just beginning. All I want to do is run and hide from Sue. She starts to count to ten, thinking I'm playing a game. A hungry T-Rex is a messy T-Rex and Sue looks for food everywhere. Mom and Dad should be home soon. What am I to do? This book is part of the "We Both Read" series. The left side of each double-page spread is meant to be read by the parents, and the content is more detailed. The right side is for the child to read, and it has less detail. Challenging words are in bold, so parents can discuss them with their child. This series has been developed by the publisher in collaboration with reading education specialists to help parents make the most of their reading time with their children. A "Parent Introduction" at the beginning of the book encourages parents to make the most of their children's reading time. This is an ingenious way to bring unique, quality enjoyment to the shared reading experience. Ebbeler's illustrations are comically colorful. Sue is more than just a T-Rex, and you won't see a pink bubble gum-covered mess like this anywhere else. Neither will your children. The pages of bright, mixed-up color and fun are engaging and will keep young readers involved. Reviewer: Debby Willett
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—In the first book, Jack has a playdate with a toddler. He tries to be a good host, but he just can't find any activities that the two can share because of the difference in their ages. Finally, he realizes one thing they can do: they can be friends. The colorful, comiclike illustrations are inviting, but can't save the bland, repetitive text. The concept of "We Both Read" is highly recommended for parent and child, but this book is not. My Sitter Is a T-Rex! is similar to Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat. Todd has an unusual babysitter who constantly but accidentally makes a mess. The story, told in rhyme, is funny, as is the expressive, colorful art, making it a worthwhile purchase for adult/child sharing.—Elaine Charnow, Deasy/Landing Elementary Schools, Glen Cove, NY
