Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Each page contains only one word in this "Word by Word First Reader." What makes it better than most is that the words are not all nouns, but a combination of nouns verbs—all nicely listed on the inside back cover. The very simple text tells the story of a young boy who heads home and decides to dress up as a cowboy for the Halloween costume contest. He decides to take a short cut and is frightened by the sound of the hooting owls in the woods. He starts to run, trips and falls into the mud and at the same time picks up a bunch of leaves and twigs. When he finally reaches the school he is a scary sight and even wins first prize for his most original costume. Those first learning to read will gets lots of help from the pictures, which are quite well done for such a simple book. These new readers will soon be breezing through this story and ready to move on to more complex texts. 2002, Cartwheel/Scholastic,
