Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
This book uses short-word families to help a child learn to read. The three short-word families covered are ig, ug, and at. The author explains to the tutor how learning these three-letter-word families help a child learn to read by following a phonetic principle. Not only do they help the child in reading, but in spelling as well. This thirty-two-page book is attractively illustrated. Children will love the simple drawings and the absence of clutter. The print is clear so that beginners can focus on the letters without being distracted by unnecessary color and drawings. Usually, you will find one word to a page, but there are pages with three to five words to a page. Yukiko Kido not only wrote this book, but illustrated it as well.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Children will be instantly attracted to the bold, colorful pictures in these books. Each title focuses on three different word families. Pig looks at words containing the letter combinations "ig," "ug," and "at," while Snake features "ake," "oat," and "ant." Peek-through pages transform illustrations to match the changing consonants (e.g., "jig" becomes "dig"). While most of the pages feature only one or two words, the last page of each section is a review of all the words from the family. The bright, flat illustrations outlined in black are reminiscent of the artwork in Dick Bruna's "Miffy" books (Kodansha America), but are more colorful. These titles could be used with beginner readers or as an introduction to rhyming words. Each one includes a page about word families that adults might find helpful. The appealing cartoon covers and die-cut pages guarantee circulation.-Danielle Nicole Du Puis, Forest Ridge Elementary School, Laurel, MD Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
