Editorial Reviews

This jaunty book for beginning readers skillfully succeeds in the difficult task of creating an entertaining story with very short sentences and simple words. Like many kids, Raymond does everything fast despite his parents' advice to slow down. At the end of the first chapter, he's so tired he even briefly falls fast asleep. Upbeat illustrations show this boy dashing through life surrounded by friends and family. —Kathleen Odean

School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-This book contains three short vignettes about an enthusiastic African-American boy who "does things fast," whether going through his day, making a new friend, or running a race. Emerging readers will identify with Raymond, and the repetitive phrases will help them grasp the concepts as well as the words; the lively color illustrations suit the text well. This title is a solid addition to beginning-reader collections.-Kay Bowes, Concord Pike Library, Wilmington, DE Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
