A trio of titles debuts in Usborne's Easy Words to Read series by Phil Roxbee Cox, illus. by Stephen Cartwright. In each, Cox weaves words with the same phonetic pattern into an engaging story. For instance, in Goose on the Loose, "Goose is on a scooter/ She can't stay and play/ She's a goose on the loose/ `Get out of my way!' " Language consultant Marlynne Grant opens with an explanation about phonics. Other titles include: Frog on a Log and Hen's Pens. ( Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
