Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
All children need a book they can read successfully. That is why the "Ready-to-Read" books are such great assets to an elementary school classroom or library and to a home library. The "Ready-to-Read" series is divided by reading ability, and the variety of topics covered in the book span children's interests and needs. This is a Level One book, which means that it is filled with pictures, but has longer sentences and increased vocabulary for children who are just starting to read and need the help of a parent or teacher. This book is about a girl (Emma) who wants to play soccer with the boys in her class, but they will not let her join the team. Therefore, Emma talks with her father and comes up with a plan to get the boys and the girls to play soccer together. The topic is quite relevant to young children, and if a child is interested in soccer, then this book will be even more enjoyable to read. 2004, Simon & Schuster, Ages 5 to 7.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-The first title features a little boy having bath-time fun. In imaginative color illustrations, the bubbles multiply and float through the house, outdoors, and into the neighborhood until, "Will bubbles never stop?/Sun gets hotter./Bubbles pop." Short sentences, rhyming words, and repetition help beginning readers to feel successful. In the second book, first-grader Emma wants to play soccer with the boys on the playground, so her dad helps her to devise a plan to make them understand that it's OK for boys and girls to play together. This is a useful story for dealing with gender roles, emotions, and conflict resolution. The colorful cartoon characters are endearing. Both books are solid additions.-Tracy Bell, Durham Public Schools, NC Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
