Overview

Our New Baby (Fisher-Price® All-Star Reader™ Level 1) tells of the ups and downs of a new baby as seen through the eyes of an older sister.

Fisher-Price® All-Star Readers™ are presented in carefully age-graded levels that are just right for beginning readers at each stage of their development. Level 1, suitable for preschool through first grade, features large type, simple vocabulary, and short, rhyming stories with only a few words to a page. The lively illustrations and engaging stories, based on the experiences of 3- to 6-year-olds, are designed to make reading fun and rewarding. Level 2, suitable for first and second graders and based on the experiences of 6- to 7-year-olds, builds upon the basics introduced in Level 1 and advances the reading level by using slightly smaller type and a larger vocabulary, including multiple-syllable words.

Each book includes word activities related to each story, a note from a reading specialist with practical tips on how to help your child become an independent reader, plus stickers to reward reading.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Beginning readers will enjoy this series that encourages families to spend time reading together while helping children to build their literacy skills. Through a partnership with Reader's Digest and Mattel, the books carry a Fisher-Price logo on the cover. Both have short sentences, repetitive phrases, words that rhyme, and visual clues in the bright illustrations, all of which make for easy decoding. Our New Baby looks at the upheaval caused by the arrival of an infant, as seen through the eyes of the newborn's big sister, and most older siblings will relate to her reactions. Children will also identify with the feelings expressed in When I Am Big, in which a boy shares his dreams of athletic glory. Both titles have a note to parents that includes tips and hints for making reading both rewarding and fun. However, the series reinforces reading skills with a star-sticker grid and a list of sight words to color, making the books better suited to home markets than school and public libraries.-Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
