Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This is a wonderful book for beginning readers. It is a charming story about an adorable young girl and her trip to the pet store in search of the best pet. Each pet offers something different and young readers will be delighted by the heart-warming, familiar theme of trying to find the perfect pet. The engaging story is simple, direct, humorous, and fun. The large print text is predictable, repetitive, and familiar. Bright-colored illustrations of a young girl and the pets she sees in the pet store accompany each page of text. The expressive, detailed 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 pet, dogs, and pup. Repeated use of several basic high frequency words such as this, which, and all 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 Picture Walk 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 independently, and teachers will find this book to be a wonderful complement to their school's reading program or guided reading book collection.
