Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This is a wonderful book for beginning readers. It is a humorous story about Ben, a pet frog who is on the loose, hopping from here to there, and leaving a trail of chaos in his path. An endearing young boy follows Ben as he hops from a car to the mud to a jar and safely into bed. Luckily, all ends well for Ben the frog 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. Humorous, brightly colored illustrations of Ben the frog and the young boy who chases him accompany each page of text, and the expressive engaging 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 e, u, or o vowel sound such as tent, tub, and hop. Repeated use of a few high frequency words such as down, my, and where make this text accessible for beginning readers. This book, along with the other appealing books in the "Level 2 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 word games that make learning fun such as I Spy and Go Fish. 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.
