Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Two more beginning readers that emphasize character building and finding positive resolutions for difficult situations. In Shipwreck Saturday, Little Bill takes a sailboat that he has painstakingly built to a nearby lake to see if it will float. However, the vessel is wrecked by the strong wake made by a passing rowboat. He runs home in tears only to be called back by his friends who have used the remaining pieces to make a kite that they are flying high in the sky. In Super-Fine Valentine, Little Bill wants to give a girl a Valentine but is concerned that his classmates will make fun of him. He overcomes his self-consciousness and ultimately makes a new friend. Honeywood's bright, folk-art illustrations visualize Little Bill's emotions and reinforce the point of each story. These titles can help youngsters pick up some hints on handling themselves in different situations. Slight but serviceable additions where values clarification is needed.Cheryl Cufari, Glencliff Elementary School, Niskayuna, NY

Little Bill works hard on a raft and it gets destroyed, so he goes running home, crying. But, then his pals collect what's left and make a kite so his efforts pay off in creating something. This book shows children that effort and hard work pays off in one way or another and that there's always light at the end of their seemingly dark tunnel of childhood.
