Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
One morning, a rooster decides to go out and see the world. As he takes his journey, different animals (two cats, three frogs, four turtles, and five fish) join him. Once night falls, the animals think about different comforts (i.e. food, warmth, shelter, safety) and they decide to return home. The text is a modified version of Carle's original story, Rooster's Off to See the World. The plot is similar. However, the text in the adapted version is simplified to support early readers. Sentences are shorter in length; for instance the phrase, "after a while" (in original story) is replaced with "then." The inset pictures to support counting from one to five (found in the original story) are not part of this adapted book. Younger children may enjoy viewing Carle's colorful and attractive illustrations as they listen to a read aloud of the story. This book is part of the "Ready to Read" (Level One) series. No consultant was listed for the series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
