Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Gil is so excited--it is a big day for him. As he meets with Ann and Todd and asks if they know what day it is, they don't reveal that there is anything special about this day. Gil doesn't notice that they are hiding a present and a birthday cake, but sharp-eyed young readers will. Gil is surprised and touched when they hold a surprise birthday party for him. Simple sentences, charming illustrations, and plenty of visual clues will help emergent readers successfully undertake this story on their own. A Level 1 book in the "Green Light Reader" series, grades K-1. 2000, Harcourt, Ages 5 to 7, $10.95. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-These series entries have colorful illustrations and very simple, repetitive texts. In Tapping Tale, a child goes on her first sleepover and hears a noise in the night that turns out to be her friend's dog's tail. The illustrations are bright and appealing, but the story seems incomplete. The second title is more satisfying, although the theme is a bit tired. Framed cartoon illustrations leave clues that Gil, an ant, is mistaken in thinking that his friends have forgotten his birthday. His dejection is cleverly shown by his drooping antennae and his elation clearly depicted at the surprise party given in his honor. Additional at best.-Nancy J.
