Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
This colorful book is on heavy paper substantial enough for many children to enjoy looking at, reading and learning. Children will enjoy the clean, colorful drawings and how easy it is to make a different word by changing one letter. Word families used are "ake," "oat," and "ant". Children learn by flipping a cut-out to change a word, for example, "coat" becomes "boat." The colorful, humorous drawings will aid children's memories. Many children will benefit from this phonetic approach to short words when learning to read. Some reading experts may question why Kido included a word with a short vowel with two word families with long vowels. There are directions to the tutor on the first page. At the end of the book there is a page of eight words in the "ake" and "oat" families and six words in the "ant" family. Preschools will want this title to their library and classrooms.

K-Gr 2-Children will be instantly attracted to the bold, colorful pictures in these books. Each title focuses on three different word families. Pig looks at words containing the letter combinations "ig," "ug," and "at," while Snake features "ake," "oat," and "ant." Peek-through pages transform illustrations to match the changing consonants (e.g., "jig" becomes "dig"). While most of the pages feature only one or two words, the last page of each section is a review of all the words from the family. The bright, flat illustrations outlined in black are reminiscent of the artwork in Dick Bruna's "Miffy" books (Kodansha America), but are more colorful. These titles could be used with beginner readers or as an introduction to rhyming words. Each one includes a page about word families that adults might find helpful. The appealing cartoon covers and die-cut pages guarantee circulation.-Danielle Nicole Du Puis, Forest Ridge Elementary School, Laurel, MD Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
