I wish that all beginning readers were this entertaining! With a simple vocabulary, funny and fun illustrations and some good rhymes, this is a great choice for a new reader.
Kids will feel successful about their reading skills and will also see that reading can be fun as they go through the story. For the adults, there are helpful suggestions at the back of the book.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for another good title in the Reading Stars series.
This is a simple story book for young listeners. They will see how well a mother owl takes care of her baby when he becomes ill. The routines of a sick room are simply explained. The reader also sees Little Hoo’s friends arrive. They can’t play with Little Hoo but come back with a get well surprise for him. Children will be reassured to know that when ill, they can feel better soon.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this e-galley. The opinions are my own.
This is part of a series of early readers. The text is very simple, yet appealing in its easy repetition. The illustrations are amusing and bright.
Young readers will be entertained by learning about the things that Cody is happy to eat and will enjoy the success of reading on their own. . Adults will appreciate the short section on using this book with a child. All in all a fun read for everyone.
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this e-galley. The opinions are my own.
This brightly illustrated book will be a useful addition to classroom and library shelves. In this story, it is diversity week at school. Students from Japan, Mexico and Hawaii share some of their traditions and the children learn from one another. Suggestions for responding to new experiences will encourage politeness among those who are being exposed to something for the first time. Diversity is presented as a positive value in which all have something to contribute. The book also includes suggestions for the adults in students’ lives.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
