Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Sugu's birthday is the next day and she wants one white cat for a gift. Nothing else will do. Sugu looks around the night of her birthday and sees many cats rather than just one white cat like she wanted. Actually, she sees ten different colored cats and they are all over the house. Sugu hears her mother say that it is time to get up and it is her birthday. She sees no cats. Then her mother gives her one white cat and it is just what she wanted. This "We Both Read" books is designed so that the mother reads the longer sentences on the left side and the child reads the right side with only a few words. The illustrations help the child with the pronunciation of the words. While reading about cats, the child learns to count and recognize the names of colors. There are three levels of "We Both Read" books, Level K through 2. Beginning readers, parents, and teachers will welcome this series of books that help a beginner get off the ground in reading.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-The gimmicky concept behind this book is that adults read one page of text, while children read a few words or phrases on the following page. The insipid story begins with pajama-clad Suzu hoping that she'll receive a white cat for her birthday. When she goes to bed, she finds the feline that she has been wanting. Then, a black cat crawls out from under her bed, and then a red one appears. More cats continue to show up until there are 10 in all, and she finally discovers that it was just a dream. Nothing in this unoriginal story with its amateurish cartoon illustrations will motivate young readers to want to read.-Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Perfect Beginner Reading

    This is great for my 5 year old child. It allowed you to sound out words and to notice some sight words. You will love it.
