Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this delightful reader, a group of young children and their teacher have fun selecting the "word of the day." Each day at 10:00 a.m., Mrs. Shay asks one of her students to provide a new word for her list. And each day, her students are overwhelmed by their rumbling tummies. As a result, they always select words that represent their favorite snacks—cheese, dip, popcorn, and plums. On Friday, one of the students, Kat, brings in a surprise and empties all kinds of goodies on the table. After she takes out a stack of crackers and slices of cheese, carrot sticks and dip, a bag of popcorn, and five big plums, she declares that the word of the day is "snack." Young readers will enjoy the simplistic, bright illustrations and the repetitive nature of this charming story. It is part of the "Read-It! Readers" series. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 9.
