Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This is a wonderful book for beginning readers. It is a humorous story about two endearing bears named Matt and Sid. Matt is a slow cab driver and Sid, who is in a big hurry, jumps into his cab. When Matt finally speeds up, the cab hits a big dip and their problems begin. Luckily, all ends well, and young readers will be entertained by this funny story, which is simple, direct, humorous, and captivating. The large print text is predictable, repetitive, and familiar. Brightly colored, detailed illustrations of these appealing bear friends accompany each page of text, and the clear illustrations fully support the meaning of the story. There is one line of text on each page, and most of the one syllable words contain the short a or short i vowel sound such as map, cap, rip, and tip. Repeated use of a few high frequency words such as the, go, and now make this text accessible for beginning readers. This book, along with the other appealing books in the "Level 1 We Read Phonics" series, is carefully written and designed to support beginning readers with phonics skills and basic sight word acquisition. On the first page, there is an introductory letter to parents with wonderful suggestions for games that make learning fun such as rhyming games and sight word Tic-Tac-Toe. The final two pages of the text also contain specific suggestions for phonics games and activities that will help beginning readers learn the basic words that will make this story an independent read. Beginning readers will love to read this engaging story, and teachers will find this book to be a welcome complement to their school's reading program or guided reading book collection.
