Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The six foxes—Ellen, Max, Greg, Dixon, Beth and Meg have a series of slight adventures in this very early reader. Most of the text is written as questions—"How can six sad foxes fix an old banjo?" The questions are never really answered and we just learn that they are sad, happy, hungry, or mad. The only really interesting part of the book is the activity described after the text. Kids are asked to take a piece of paper and list the activities that they like to do inside and outside. Then they are asked to draw each and also write a sentence about their activity choices. There is also a page with tips for helping kids become good readers. If this is a book targeted to kids getting ready to read, it appears illogical to expect that they will be able to write a list or the sentences to go along with them. A "Green Light Reader," Level 1 for kids getting ready to read. 2003, Harcourt, Ages 4 to 6.
