Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Four small booklets are included in a cover holder in this "Brand New Readers' series. They are designed for children who are just learning to read. Suggestions for teaching a child to read this type of book are given. In each small booklet, there is one sentence on each page. The main characters, Termite and Ostrich, do something a little different on each page, and this is shown in the illustration. For example, in "Termite Taps," the first sentence is: "Termite tap?dances up the stairs." Then on the next page, the sentence is, "Termite tap?dances down the stairs." The other booklets are titled, "Termite in the Canoe," "Termite Measures," and "Termite Helps." It is a little odd for a first book that a child reads to be about a termite and an ostrich, but the stories are cute and amusing. The illustrations are simple and fun. For parents who want their children to learn to read by learning words by sight, this book would be very helpful. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
