Kindergarten-Grade 1-These titles are made accessible to their audience through their reliance on repetitive, predictable texts supported by picture cues. The four stories in each book are told in short sentences, one per page. "Ruby [the sheep] eats hay./Munch, munch./Ruby eats more hay./Munch, munch, munch./Ruby eats and eats./Kate [the cow] sees the hay./Kate eats hay too. Munch, munch!/Kate sees Ruby! 'Baa!'" "Dinah Dinosaur sees a little bird./She sees a big bird./She sees a little tree./She sees a big tree./She sees a little hole./She does NOT see the big hole./She falls in./OUCH!" Most of the scenarios attempt a surprise twist at the end to add a bit of humor to the otherwise tedious structure. Suggestions for adults to help beginning readers and brief introductions that preview the plot and vocabulary are included. Illustrations are done in a simple, colorful, childlike style. The stories are similar to the leveled, guided reading series provided by educational publishers. The texts and art do not have enough appeal for sharing aloud, but they do provide adequate skill reinforcement for fledgling readers.
