Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Kat is a young girl slowly preparing for an exciting afternoon outside. It is a cold day and with each turn of the page she adds an additional layer of warm winter clothing. Once she is fully dressed she grabs her sled. Kat seems to have everything she needs for a fun afternoon adventure. When she gets outside, however, she realizes that one important thing is missing—the snow! Simple high-frequency words and repetition are used in this book. There is a single four- to five-word sentence on each set of pages. The text is large and bold. The brightly-colored illustrations help the reader to interpret the words. Beginning readers will relate to the topic of dressing warmly on a cold winter's day and this book will make them proud of their developing reading skills. This title is part of the "Read it! Readers" series. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 8.

K-Gr 2-Representing the most basic reading skill stage in the series, these books range from enjoyable to mundane. All have one simple sentence per page, with no more than six words in each one. The strongest of the bunch is Bess, which compares Lucy's two lovable dogs who are exact opposites in personality. The comparison concept is enhanced by the acrylic picture clues. In Kat, the young protagonist names the color of each article of clothing as she gets ready to go outside. The weakest of the lot is Moving Day, which deals with Ben's concern about Grandpa moving. It will take astute and observant readers to sort out the fact that the first house pictured is Grandpa's and that he is moving in with Ben's family. The digital artwork is unappealing, and Ben's mother's facial features are stuck in the gutter. Librarians can pick and choose among the stronger titles.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
