From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-These three books each include four stories, accompanied by bright illustrations done in watercolors, pastels, and ink. Each page has one short, simple sentence that directly correlates to the large, uncluttered picture. Worm cleverly turns a leaky ceiling into an advantage; turns himself into a circle, a square, and a triangle; experiences a variety of smells; and paints a picture. Silly Ruby, a sheep, plays in the wrong places, eats all of the grain, makes too much noise, and gets buried in a mound of apples. Dinah Dinosaur meets a scary monster, sits on a rock that isn't a rock, and gets muddy with a friend before going to bed. Repetition and endearing protagonists will make these titles appealing to the earliest readers. Tips to aid parents in helping their new readers are included.

From Booklist:

Gr. K-1. Like Meet Dinah Dinosaur [BKL O 1 00], this small book in the Brand New Readers series includes four very simple stories told with lots of repetition and big, bright illustrations in watercolor, pastel, and ink. Preschoolers will recognize the scenarios: going for a walk and running home when something scares you; seeing a pretty rock and discovering that it moves; playing in mud with a friend and then getting cleaned up; and preparing for bed. The tips for adults who are encouraging first-time readers are practical, and the scenarios make reading fun. Hazel Rochman
