Children's LiteratureRoll out the mats and start kicking! This book shows what happens in a Tae Kwon Do class for preschool and kindergarten children. The text consists of a number of active, one syllable verbs. Only a few words are on each page. Excellent illustrations accompany the text. The rhyming text and pictures combine as they teach about the ideas of taking care of your own equipment, cooperation, and respect. Diversity is shown with the mix of girls, boys, and youngsters from many backgrounds. In addition, class activities are conducted by a man and a woman. This "Ready to Read" (level 1) selection is from the Random House "Step into Reading" series. Early readers will use the picture clues and rhyming patterns to come away with a successful reading experience. All children can relate to the action even if they do not take Tae Kwon Do. Illustrations featuring active children are also a plus. Add this to library shelves for early readers and lookers. 2006, Random House, and Ages 3 to 6.
