Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This early reader has a mixed message. Little Big Horse leaves school and is anxious to get on his bike, but it is not where he left it. What could have happened? He discovers that a big bull named Pablo took it and is having a great time riding the bike and even says “Finders Keepers.” As Little Big Horse sadly makes his way home he sees Pablo sitting on the sidewalk crying. Pablo fell off the bike and now claims that the bike is broken just like his own bike. Little Big Horse points out that it is just a flat tire and that it can be easily repaired. Off they go to the gas station to fill the tire with air and then head on to Pablo’s house where they also repair his bike. All is forgiven, and they are seen riding off together. The fact that Pablo is a bull, which equates to bully, and that he apologizes for taking Little Big Horse’s bike does not make taking it right. Little Big Horse is a very “big” kid to forgive the theft. This is a Level 1 reader designed to appeal to kids in kindergarten and first grade. The text focuses on sight words to sound out and simple sentences. There is a web link to learn more about the author. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot; Ages 5 to 7.
