Kindergarten-Grade 2-Yoko is an accomplished reader, but she is not letting on. When her teacher asks her to sound out the word "Pan," she says, "Nap?" and when given the word "Cat," she guesses "Dog?" Soon, though, her ability is discovered-she writes a letter to Thunderchip Cornflakes Company for a secret decoder ring, and she helps her friend Timothy with origami instructions. When asked why she has kept her skill a secret, the little kitten replies that she's afraid her mother will stop reading bedtime stories to her. After much reassurance, Yoko agrees to read to her mother as well. Many children will identify with the little feline and take delight in knowing her secret. Each page sports a bright, color illustration that will aid beginning readers in decoding the text. Simple yet poignant, this book would make a good addition to easy-reader collections.
