Children's LiteratureThis title is part of the "Signs in My World" series that follows children through familiar settings and introduces readers to common signs in their environment. In this book, we follow Sally, her mom, and their dog, Katie, on a walk through the park. As they walk, Sally points out various signs and explains their meanings to the reader. The book is set up to encourage practice matching and sequencing as well as introducing readers to new vocabulary. The book's pacing, however, is too fast. On one page, Sally and her mom arrive at the walking trail, on the next, they are going home. Readers may also be discouraged by the fact that the intriguing "equine crossing" sign on the book's cover is not explained. Like all the books in the series, it uses engaging photos of multi-cultural children in settings familiar to young children. It contains a table of contents, vocabulary page, suggestions for further reading, and an index. While this seems extreme for such a short book, it offers an excellent opportunity for young readers to learn about book structure. 2003, Rosen Book Works, Ages 3 to 5.
